One of the best great-value-for-money speakers ever made

Zak K., 04.02.2015
The G12-65 has a good all-round frequency response with a slightly over-eager top-end response. Clean sounds are clear and crisp. The bass is tight and not at all boomy. Although there is a small mid-high peak, edgy sounds break up nicely with some fizz in the higher registers, while the bass remains intact so that power chords don't get muddy. Although it can sound smooth and warm, it leans slightly toward creamy-crunch when pushed. It is capable of producing drive and distortion tones ranging from thick and woody (Eric Johnson, Cream) to sharp and searing lead. For my taste, it has a tendency toward being slightly too bright, but it never gets ear-piercing in any way.

It took about ten hours to break in the speaker. I've gigged with it for several hundred hours now and it's holding up nicely. It is mounted onto a birch plywood baffle attached to a pine plywood body, which is quite ideal for isolating the sound of the speaker. I haven't methodically tested it in various speaker configurations such as 2x12 or 4x12 and have only powered it using a couple of different Mesa Boogies and a Dumble. It provides a rounded bass response for when I'm playing clean jazz. It gives me the required treble for funk, cuts through nicely for country lead and blue grass, and it sings really well when I'm playing blues or fusion. In challenging gig situations, I need my tone to cut through but not to get too rude and ugly, and this speaker is well suited to these requirements.

Wow!

Edorn, 21.12.2013
The speaker is really a revelation. The sound is detailed, but warm, Bold, plastic, with bell-like heights, balanced with somewhat softer, but not snotty mids and very lightly woody (in the direction of Greenback or something like fat Vox Tone. I had had a lot of LS connected to my amps in the last 10 years. The benchmark was and remains my old V30 in the Engl-Combo from the beginning 90-er. G12-65 is not worse, but equals u. In tone somewhat different. It is bold, but still has enough air, not as ultra-dense as G12H-75, and much more flexible. A true multitalent that I've been looking for a long time. Still had 12Gh-30 Aniv., G12H-75 & BB by Jensen for comparison. They are all really good speakers, but none could handle the tasks as universally as G12-65 at the highest level. It is very universal. Whether clean or dirty, Strat, Paula, Superstrat, Jazz, Funky, Blues, Hardrock, Metal, Engl, Ampeg, Orange, Marshall, Diezel ... is definitely an enrichment for every amp.
For a thorough assessment it is not enough to play the LS only. You should also take it with reasonable euqipment. You only hear the whole truth and in this case it is beautiful. The recordings are wonderful. No long-lasting EQ inquisitions, not even Compressor needs, if the drums are not much too bold and not mixed forward. Guitar tracks just louder and limiter on it - done. It sounds natural, bold and harmonious. One of the best loudspeakers ever built. Hopefully, he will still be produced long enough, otherwise I have to stock up;))

A clear recommendation!
