4x12 cabs worth checking out that have V30s

I know of two cabs that I'd be interested in looking at that come stock with V30s:
Marshall 1960AV
Mesa Traditional (Rectifier or Stiletto)

Is there anything else I should look for? I'd be buying this used probably.

I have only used my Mesa 4x12 so thats what I'd recommend.

I love my 2x12 traditional styled cab with V30's, and I'd expect even better results with their more expensive lines of 4x12's.

Carvin makes a decent cab with V30s, as well as B-52 makes one as well.
I bought my Mesa cab used... Nice for a V30 cab, and I love the oversizing, much better sounding than a standard Marshall, at least to me...

Marshall make a vintage 30 loaded 1960 series cab. Costs more than the typical 1960a cab of course. However you're probably better off with a Mesa, better construction.

I second this suggestion.

I have two Carvin legacy 4x12 cabs with V30 speakers, and they are the best cabs I've ever played through. I'll probably never buy a different brand/model of cab.

Talking Marshall 1960AV

I own a Marshall 1960AV with Vintage 30s. It's a great sounding cab. You can pick up used on eBay for around $500. They are very thick sounding and have the vintage mid-range bite.

Mesa Boogie cabs with Vin 30s are more focused on bottom end for that heavier sound. IMO, the Marshall is a much more rounded cabinet for rock, alternative, pop, classic rock, hard rock, and metal. The Mesa is better for detuning and numetal.

That's what I figured about the Marshall vs Mesa thing. I do detune, but I do not want the typical detuned sound.

I will keep my eye out for these cabs. Thanks Geeks.

I believe the Mesa Stiletto cabinet is loaded with V30s. It is a little smaller than the Rectifier cab so that there is not as much low end. Check it out. Marshall size, Mesa quality maybe?

Correct on both accounts (V30s and size), that's why it was included in my original post

Mesa Cabs

Most Mesa cabs are going to have a lot more bottom end than Marshalls, or other brands for that matter.

I have a Mesa 2x12 closed back cab with Vintage 30s that I used before I got both of my 4x12 cabs. The Mesa 2x12 had more bottom end than either of my Marshall 4x12s (1960A and 1960AV). I don't like all that bottom end. Too easy for the guitar to get lost in the mix.
