Hey chaps, I've just ordered my 4x12 Laney gs412l
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/gs-412i/387

However they have told me that the speaker needs to be delivered in, so this got me thinking, considering i am only doing bedroom play, jamming with friends would you advise me to cancel the order, stretch my budget and order a 2X12? I'm looking for that Gilbert tone.

Budget of £400

Paul used a Laney GS212PE cab which has now been discontinued

So guys stick with the Laney cab, or buy a 2x12 of higher quality?

Someone gave me this information in the Racer X forum

No way dude, there's way better cabs out there.


For example:

Mesa Recto 2x12s freakin rule!
Avatar 2x12 (I've heard very good things come from this cab)
G-Benz 2x12 is supposed to be amazing
VHT 2x12 cabs are killer.

...loads more too.


Liking the look of this 1, although that would mean I'd have to wait for a month to get it...

EDIT I have a Line 6 Spider 2X12 i could sell and am expecting £533 from tesco on the 2nd October

Orange PPC212 is worth a look, mine came yesterday and it sounds great HEAPS of bass and clarity and I've got a crap pickups so with a PGM it would sound even better. I'm using the GH50L no the 100 though.

Really solid build as well because of the 18mm ply, it weighs as much as the Laney 4x12.

Is it a good idea when your cab costs more than your amp? Congrats on the purchase by the way.
