The best 2x12 cab i have ever used!
Daniel G. 770, 12.10.2018
So let me start by saying that i bought this HB 2x12 because i gigged with Marshall 4x12 cabs for many years and got tired of carrying around heavy cabs.

I needed a 2x12 that could sound big but would be lighter to carry. Ideally i needed something with Celestion V30's or similar.

After looking around the internet, i discovered the Harley Benton G212 Vintage and my first impression was :
"How can they sell a V30 loaded cab for less money than 2 separate Celestion V30 speakers?"

At this point, i immediately placed the order because this is a total bargain. You're basically getting the cab for free when you think about it.

When the cab arrived, it looked fantastic and the overall quality was even better than i had expected.

I plugged it in and A/B tested it against my trust old Marshall 4x12. Here's what i discovered:

The HB 2x12 sounded more defined than the Marshall 4x12. It handled the low end better and actually seemed to be more 'punchy' in those lower mid and bass frequencies.

The HB 2x12 also sounds a little more aggressive in the midrange in comparison. This is likely because the speakers are front loaded, which gives a bit more of that direct sound. This makes it extremely good for rock or metal tones! However, it'll do just about anything you can think of and still sound great.

The top end is clear and cuts through the mix always, but it never sounds shrill or harsh.

I have now owned this cab for 7 years and gigged with it many times and it's still holding strong and performing flawlessly. The tolex is still attached, the grill cloth isn't damaged... This is pretty impressive for a cab that is priced so low!

If you're reading this review and you're trying to decide on purchasing this cab... My advice is just to go for it. I really don't think you'll find a better cab until you spend 3 or 4x more money. And even then, it won't sound 4x better or last 4x longer.

This cab is perfect for me and i will for sure own more than one in future for my new rig!

Great Cab for the price!!!
obelard, 13.07.2017
When I bought this CAB, I knew it would sound very good based on the fact that it has Vintage thomann 30 speakers inside. What I didn't know, is how the quality of the CAB itself would be.Build Quality - This is an extremely well crafted CAB. The fit and finish are as good as a several other CABS I have that cost me a lot more money. The thomann corners are perfectly square and solidly built. The closed back is very well done. The Tolex covering was applied very well, even and smooth all around. The front grill cloth was applied very well, and looks great. The built in recessed carrying handles are heavy duty, perfectly installed, thomann and they look and function very well. The "Harley Benton" Logo looks great on this CAB as well. Sound Quality and Features - The sound quality from this CAB and the V30's is incredible. I'm a Blues/Rock player and have used this CAB with several different valve heads thomann at varying volume levels. This CAB performs amazingly well with anything from a monster 120 watt valve head, to a Micro Valve 20 Watt head. The CAB has great tone at virtually all volume levels. To my ear, this CAB cover the entire tone spectrum perfectly. Super nice thomann crisp highs, warm and inviting mids, and just the right amount of low end Bass. My favorite thing about the sound quality is the ability to hear the articulation so very well. That is just incredible. The input options on the back of the CAB are simple, yet thomann very useful. Conclusion - It's hard to believe that I was able to buy such a well made, great looking and awesome sounding CAB for such a great price. I've used this CAB a lot since purchasing it. It's reliable, heavy duty, and best of all, I've had thomann a ton of really nice compliments on it. I was thinking that over a period of heavy use, it might fail in one way or another, but so far, it's been a work horse. If you like the sound of the Vintage 30 Speakers, this is clearly a thomann CAB I can recommend with zero hesitation. Oh and Thomann had it to my door within 8 days, all the way to the USA. If I could give it more stars for overall quality, sound, and value, I would. I love it.
