seems not too bad to me. I've seen people say the tolex is a bit fragile, though (I'm not exactly taxing mine with home use).

Fair enough, do you reckon it'll hold up to gigging though?
And which would be better, the HB or the Laney Ironheart 2x12?
Thanks

If you get the HB 2x12 vintage it will have better speakers (celestion V30) the regular HB 2x12 has really cheap speakers. The Ironheart has cheap OEM speakers

Sorry, yeah, I shoulda said, I was considering the G212 Vintage, not the regular one.

So the Ironheart's speakers aren't that great? Interesting.

Alright, from what I can see here, the HB has the better specs, and the build quality is much the same, so I think I'll go for the HB.

Unfortunately I have to save up for a month or so

Thanks guys, you've helped me make the right decision

My old band's guitarist used a HB212 Vintage and the 112 version, both sounded decent and they seemed pretty well built, especially for the money, there were a couple of dings in the tolex but nothing scary, just wear and tear.
