Re: Metallica speakers

@Silverwulf : Very interesting. After revising the flemming notes, it's correct, 300w cabinets were used for battery song at least (evidence below). I don't know if it's james or Kirk set but it means that it's not G12-65. I will dig for the original date of the G12-75 and the cab serial numbers. Bu...

Re: Metallica speakers

@boogieordie : there are no 300 watts produced in Marshall catalog at these time, it's cleadly stated in the books of reliable people. And the speaker next on the Marshall production list was the G12-70M, not the G12-75T. Last, the notes you are talking about are for Kirk amp, and this song was play...

Re: Metallica speakers

Hi Silverwulf, could you please post pics and the serial code of your G12T-75, it's interesting ? I had a 1984 G12-T75 speaker and it is by far the older one i've seen on the market. I wasn't aware of a 1983 G12T-75 speaker. How do you know it was the stock speaker ? I can hear that Marshall was inc...

Re: Metallica speakers

I didn't want dafxtone's misinformation above to be the last word in this thread. The G12T-75 was first used in the 1960 cab in 1984. Look at Serial # 5660 in either of these links: http://www.marstran.com/cabdata/cabdata.html https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... EmBddY/pub Do you think Mars...

Re: Metallica speakers

"I'll tend to defer to the man who produced the album and buy into his accurate notes that were taken at the time of the recording more so than someone thinking back and trying to speculate 30+ years later"

Master is done with Boogie amps and cabs

Re: Metallica speakers

Here is my source, Rasmussen himself : "Flemming Rasmussen: Well we first discussed it together about what they wanted to sound like in and how to go about achieving it, but I have to say there were a lot of guitar amp issues at first. On the first album we did together, Ride The Lightning we had a ...

Re: Deciphering Flemming Rasmussen's Notes

It's hard to deduct the amp and cab used on RTL from flemmins interviews : On the first album we did together, Ride The Lightning we had a problem with James' amp. It was stolen a week before they entered the studio to start tracking. They were on tour when it happened. Now somebody in San Francisco...

Re: Metallica speakers

There's lots of misinformation out there. The older albums were G12T-75 loaded Marshall cabs, both on RTL and MoP. By TBA, they were using Marshall 1960BV and mostly with V30s (some older Boogie scattered in) then that transitioned over to Mesa V30 and by the time Load came. I f you don't know, don...
