    Right out of the box this amp blew me away.Its light weight and loud enough to hear above a drummer and full band.Its a perfect duo with the Tubemeister 36 and when I plug in my Gibson 2017 Flying V HP it just melts your face off it sounds so good.For the money you can't go wrong with this cab.

    TM 212 - Hard to beat

    Ordered this cab to put underneath a GrandMeister 36 that was sitting atop another quality 2x12 cab I've had since last century. The difference was amazing. Not that the other cab was "bad", it certainly isn't and gets used regularly with other amp heads in my collection, its just that when the TM-212 is paired up with the GrandMeister 36 a bit of magic happens. Hard to put your finger on it, but you'll definitely know it when you hear it. This is the best 2x12 for the money out there. I couldn't be happier. I can't wait to try this cab out with other tube heads I have. I suspect I'll be ordering more of these things...

    A word about Hughes & Kettner customer service/relations - I registered this cab online (warranty) and a couple weeks later I got a package from Hughes & Kettner with some cool merchandising materials and a nice letter thanking me for registering my cabinet. It was a nice touch you don't see that often from big business these days. The package was postmarked in Germany and landed in my mailbox near Boston. Wicked awesome...not much more to say than that.

    Exceeded Expectations!

    I have had the Tubemeister 18w for a couple of years and wanted to match a cab to it. I was using another brand's 1x12 and new I wanted to move a little more air. This really did the trick. I play maybe one or two shows a month and this fills the stage nicely with my band. I would absolutely recommend this cabinet.

    Blown Away

    This cabinet sounds amazing! The 18 war head comes alive with this cabinet. I have had a couple of marshals and a Fender this blows them both away!

    Very goo Cabinet

    I bought this to go along with the Grandmeister 36. No issues what-so-ever.
    Those vintage 30 speakers really sound great.
    Well built cabinet and the perfect size and weight for transporting to gigs.

    Beyond Impressed!!!

    I've been a Marshall amp/cab guy for 35 years...... I thought there was little better than a half stack and 50 or 100 watt head...... That was until I discovered this cab with a GM 36 head....... This cab will blow away most 4x12 models, and it won't break your back packing it around!!! I've found the last, best setup I will ever need....... Thanks H&K!!!!

    What a treat....

    I just got this to run my Tubemeister18 through and I am truly suprised at how great it sounds. I used the Tubemeister in the studio with an orange 2 x 12 and a mesa boogie 2 x 12 on different sessions but the H & K gives me the thick tone I've been searching for....thanks H & K for the great products.

    A Surprising Findů

    I had a H&K CC412A cabinet and I absolutely loved it, but it was way too heavy and bulky. This 2x12 cab has basically the same specs as the CC412A, and it sounds just as great (and is much much lighter). It has a great mid sound that really thickens your tone. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

    Great Cabinet!

    Excellent quality and damn loud too! Perfect match for my Grandmeister head. A fifth star would be given if it came with wheels...which would enhance it's mobility when transporting to shows.
