I need to get a guitar cab for a gig i am doing soon but i cant decide what to get

i was going to go for the Marshall MG412 (http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/marshall-mg-412b/10512)
but was told that the MG's are bad cabinets.

i only have up to £250 to spend (i could maybe push it a little) on a cab that i can use for a warm clean sound to metal.

Ive also found this fender 212 vintage cab for £230 (http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Fender-212-Vintage-Modified-Cab-2-x-12/AC9) and am considering that but would like to get an opinion first
hope you can help

That's your best option unless you go used.
Or save up a bit more for the 412 version of that cabinet.
It has V30 speakers in it though which are industry standard (essentially haha).

Also, keep in mind that a 412 cab is not much louder than a 212 cab (at all..)

Only problem with buying a 2x12 cab, is the shipping costs. TS, have a look at Zilla cabs, you should be able to get an Ex-demo 2x12 (With speakers of your choice) for about £250.

You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.


Sums up whisky perfectly

You could probably get a used marshall 1960 for 250 is you look long enough.

The harley bentons have celestion v30s in them which basically makes them exceptional value because to build the cab yourself will cost more lol.

QFT.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

"And give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer, and he doesn't become whoever, you know. He doesn't become us."

Holy crap, check this out!

^Yeah that comes with vintage 30s. If its necissary for you to get a 4x12 then go for it.

Just remember
At the best of times, nobody really needs a half stack.
Almost all the time, you do not need a 4x12.

Theyre heavy, cumbersome, a pain in the ass and just plain overkill. You could get a better quality 2x12 for the same price-ish.

To be fair, i dunno what the construction is like on the Harley Bentons, i cant imagine it being brilliant though really.

how about the harley benton g412a?


That doesn't have Vintage 30s. The Harley Benton G412A Vintage has the V30s. If you're getting a harley benton get the one with the V30s.
