That orange cab or the marshal 1932 vintage 2x12 cab are great choices.

IF you want the best 2x12 cab there is then go for the Bogner vintage 30 2x12!! It's better than any 2x12 and most of the 4x12 cabs but it costs twice as much as a normal 2x12!

Well,
I think the best of the best are matamp cabinets.
especially if you are in the UK, these are produced in huddersfield.
Orange is great (I own a thunderverb 50 head) but you can't beat matamp, just because of all the cab is hand built and made to YOUR specifications, with the price of a china made one.

it's à la carte, my friend !!

I'm not from the UK, but I plan to do a factory tour while they will build my cab. also, being there you can test any type of speaker from through the wall of speakers in the factory.
...you can choose your to customise all colors to your taste.
the experience comes also by chatting with the same people who crafted jimmy page amps like jeff

I had the opportunity to test vintage 30s and hot 100's and I was not satisfyed by the vintage 30s, but I was blow away with the matamp 2x12 with hot 100's ! anyway, I'm sold to their cabs and it's a summer GAS for me , definitly !!


the most important advice I could give you is : do try your guitar > your head > the cab . it's amazing how you can be pleased or not depending of the speakers and what you're looking for , so please make your own mind :-)

This cab looks mighty fine. I would suggest trying it out in the store mate before buying.

I'm actually looking for a 2x12 cab as well. I'm currently considering the ENGL 212VH or the Harley Benton G212 Vintage. They've both got V30's in there but the harley benton one costs only a third of the ENGL cab (200€). So I'm really not sure what to buy. I guess the harley benton would be enough for home use. And as soon as I'll get a practice room I'll buy a 4x12 anyway.

Anyway I'll watch this topic.

I've got an Avatar Copy of that Orange Cabinet. It's the same thing only from an independent company. Ask the guy and he'll say the AVATAR CONTEMPORARY 212 is essentially his take on that cab. AMAZING CABINET!!

Another good bang for the buck is the Framus V30 2x12 box!

some of that framus gear is outrageous, its getting pushed pretty hard in the UK at the moment, the guitars look awesome.
