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!

Absolutely fantastic Cab, nothing to be ashamed of
Mattblues, 01.09.2017
I own one of the first Vintage G212's, before the "Celestion" logo was added. To start any HB review, you should know already that any product Thomann sells under their own brand is a product you can trust. The quality is absolutely amazing and you don't have to pay for the middle man. The customer service is the best in the world and you should not be worried about ordering it.

I bought this for home use, right now a Carvin X100b series III (carpet) is plugged into it. The speakers bought seperately without this cab would cost more than the cab itself! As You probably know, the Celestion Vintage 30 is pretty much the standard for rock and blues music, being featured in many famous cabs and combos, including the famous Marshall Silver Jubilees. This is a great way to get into some of that magic on the cheap. Buy a Harley Benton Cab, and use the savings for a better head than what you're planning to get.

The sound is very well balanced, with the lows sounding natural and note definition being clear, mids coming through nicely (or not if you tone them down) and the highs being able to almost get a "buzzsaw" tone. It reacts very well to guitar swaps and any character coming from the instrument shines through very well both clean and distorted. It does everything you could ever want it to. What can I say. It's a guitar cab with two great speakers that just... works. I've been using it non-stop for 5 years almost daily for hours without any problems. If the name bothers you, the logo is easy to take off. I wouldn't however - be proud of how smart you are with your money and ears!

It is, like most cabs, pretty heavy, and if you want to take it gigging, it'd be wise to make sure you have someone available to help you unload it and set it up. With a standard Marshall-sized tube head it weighs enough to not be possible to lift it alone.

In the end, this is a great cab for very little compared to so called "brand" ones with absolutely no flaws in the worksmanship and gives you tone you just can't improve on... provided you have a good head, of course.

Affordable quality!
cneck, 28.08.2020
Whole nicely done cabinet for the price of bare V30's! In cabs made by "leading" and "top" and "trusted" brands quite often you'll find constructions out of cheap OSB and sawdust/glue boards. Here, you have solid plywood nicely wrapped in black tolex with added airline grade handles and classy front grill. With V30's onboard this thing sounds exactly like cabinets from the high-end of cabinet spectrum. Good solid materials, precision in production process, classic speakers. There's just no way you'll go wrong with this. And that ridiculous price! Great product. I can bet that they're losing money on this particular item. I'm just happy they can afford that! I recommend that cab to everyone who likes aggressive sound of good ole V30's and doesn't like to be treated as a walking wallet by "top established quality blah blah blah..." brands. In the name of Rock'n'Roll, Thomann in the sky! \m/

WOW unbeatable!!
Shaun Nelson, 18.08.2020
I know this has probably be said before, but I really dunno how they can do this haha. But it's all win for us. Thank you Thomann!!

Such a great product, this little cab sounds unbelieveable and it only cost me £211.
I needed to downsize my rig and this little guy is absolutely perfect.
It sounds amazing first and foremost.
If your like me and are coming from a 4x12 yes, you'll find this a little brighter at first. But give it time, you'll need to break the speakers in. Whilst it'll never be a full fat 4x12 this cab has a lot of heart and grunt.
I just wish I had pulled the trigger a lot sooner.

I'm really looking for to mic'ing this bad boy up for some recordings soon. I've really only used it in the practice room.

Well built, great specs, sure the speakers cost more than the actual cab, it's a no brianer folks, just get one!
