Excellent tone and value
I am quite pleased with this cabinet. I have it paired with a Blackstar HT20 head and find this combination quite versatile. I can do clean, jazzy, classic rock, and metal through this cabinet quite easily. I have a separate open back cabinet with an older English-made Celestion Vintage 30 that does cleaner sounds and classic rock a tad bit better, but not by as big of a margin as I thought it would have been. One thing I didn't expect was its size--it's quite a small cabinet and is easily transportable. It sounds bigger than it should, maybe due to its front-firing ported design. I was considering a closed Orange cabinet with one Vintage 30 for a while, but I think this Hughes and Kettner is a steal and better value overall. The sound will only get better too as the speaker breaks in.
