Anyone call for a cab?

Gain_Badger, 28.10.2014
Edited after using the cab live a lot :-)
There are many better cabs out there, but none for the money. If you aren't a gear snob or tone hound and have realised that probably 99% of your audience really don't give a monkey about the nuance of sound but just want to dance like loonies and don't want to wince with any harshness in the sound.
Welcome to my world. Boutique cabs cost more before they start earning. My gear has to earn. I needed to reinforce our sound. Not 'make louder' but reinforce.
Combo on a beer crate behind me, extension cab on the other side of the stage on a beer crate. I'd been borrowing a Marshall 50watt combo + 1x12 which sounded no better. If we need louder, we mic up.Seems gear snobs and thieves like Marshall. I'm HB-80R+ this cab now and we still sound AWESOME! for less than the cost of just the stolen cab.
Construction wise, it classes as adequate. It's an MDF chassis and mine had a footprint on the inside...Who cares! It is adequate. Interesting to note how the audiophile hi-fi lot used to witter on about how much better the sound from MDF cabinets compared to ply was, yet in the guitar world, MDF is treated as a joke. There's MDF and mdf I guess. This passes muster for MDF as opposed to barely compacted wood dust in glue.
The speaker has no identifying marks on mine. It makes a sound. Not a very nice one at first, but run full power for 10 minutes and it smooths out.
EDIT
It has now spent some hours making some very high volume levels indeed, and those volume levels have been unperturbed by unwanted cabinet colouration or speaker distortion. Think of it as running the cone in, like you'd an old engine that'd been reconditioned. As it has softened up, so has any brittleness about the edges of the sound. The speaker is a good match for the Celestion Seventy/80 in the combo. Less bass and perhaps a little harsher but nothing of consequence. There are no strident overtones or pockets of missing frequencies, just a damn fine sound. No nasal honkiness when chunking and chopping either.
The cab is open back and reflex ported. There are no tubes, but is ported. This is a hint. You can place the cab near a wall or even gaffa stiff card at a pinch to make it a closed back. Bass beefs up as a result.
Same with open back combos. Make a closer for tighter bass.
The corner guards aren't fitted too neatly, but really, it makes a nice sound so who cares?.
For playing with amp heads for practice. As a cab, as an amp extension speaker, you'll not get better without spending big coin. The Vintage model may be more refined, but this has cojones. If you sip tea from a cup, go vintage model. Me?, I gulp from a mug

Great bang for the buck cab

Elliot B, 21.04.2017
Lets me first say that you're not going to find a cheaper, reliable and great sounding cabinet for this sort of money. If you are buying your first amp head and need a cheap and cheerful cabinet to go with it or if you need an extra cab to bring with you to a gig to pad out and widen your guitar sound i would strongly recommend buying one of these.

Now onto the pros and cons.

Pros:
- Incredibly good value for money

- Decent construction, its got going to mind being knocked about in the back of a van or car, well mine has at least stood up to at least 8 or 9 gigs and its not fell apart or shown any signs of major wear to the wood or construction although the tolex is a different story.

- Sounds great once the speaker has been broken in.

Cons:

- Out of the box the speaker was a little lack luster, it does need ample time to be broken in, i suggest running pink noise through it from anywhere between 3 to 8+ hours before you use it in any professional manner whether that is gigging with it or recording with it.

- The grill cloth does feel a bit cheap but its not really a con, i mean what do you expect for less then £70.

- Although the construction seems pretty rock solid the tolex they have put around it can be torn, damaged and broken pretty easily unlike some more heavy duty tolex bigger companies put around their amp cabinets. Just bringing it up a flight of stairs to my little studio and accidentally knocking it against my rounded banister cut it pretty easily, so if you want it to look pristine for as long as possible just have a bit of caution when moving it about.

TL;DR - Great bang for the buck cabinet, solid construction, break in the speaker before professional use.
