I would seriously consider whether you need a 4x12" Cab. I think your money could be much better spent on a small valve combo, something you may want to keep for a long time.
One of these perhaps click

That would be a huge downgrade btw, cause Marshall MG's are terrible. Just cause it says Marshall, does not mean it will sound like a real Marshall half stack and they don't
The only people who would buy them are n00bs who don't know the slightest thing about playing guitar or anything about amps.

Im at uni at the moment and im using these amps in the and practice room. At home i have an ENGL screamer, and i can tell you, for the money- those marshall amps are worth it.
Fair enough, if you have the money, get a tube amp. But i can get usable metal/rock sounds out of those amps. Believe me, you can do ALOT worse than these amps.
HOWEVER, to be brutally honest- if you have a Cube 30 now- the marshal isnt going to be much different... Maybe save your money ?

On channel 1, I can get anything from an extreemly clean sound, to a light blues overdrive when the gain is on 10. On channel 2, I can get from a little less overdrive then channel one, all the way up to a weighted distortion, and everything in between just as easily. I leave my CH2 gain between 6 and 7 for a smooth lead sound.
If an amp can't go halfway between clean and dirty, than it is not worth the money. (Unless, for example, it is only built for clean).
There should not be a distinguishable point where the signal begins to distort.

That being said, a good tube combo is still the way to go .
