I've played every practice and every gig with this cabinet for over a year and it's got a few dings in the tolex, but where it counts, it still works great! Are there better cabinets out there? sure there are, but for a couple of hundred bucks, it's the best I found for the money.
First of all, I've waited over a year to write this review because I really hate the reviews that start off with "My parents just bought me this today... blah blah blah..." I want to know that it lasts and what it sounds like in different places.. not on a carpeted bedroom floor playing it soft enough so that the parents that just bought it don't complain...

I was on a pretty strict budget when I bought this cabinet to give an extra couple of 12's to my 1974 Fender Twin. I fully expected that I was going to have to, at a minimum, change the speakers fairly soon as the Twin is putting out 100 watts of Fender power, I just didn't think they were going to last. Well, It's been over a year and it's still rockin'. I stack the Twin on top of it, or lean it back for a monitor next to it depending on the stage set up we're on. in that case the Bugera is the speaker that the audience hears, and I'm ok with that.. so much so that I mic the Bugera Cabinet instead of the Fender,
The Tolex covering is not as durable as I would have liked, but if the pretty outside cover is where they saved the money, I'm ok with that. The Handle is huge which made stacking the twin on there a bit of a challenge, so, I bolted a 3/4" X 6" of plastic stock on either side of the handle that gives the amp a firm place to sit and gives the handle plenty of room. I put castors on the bottom so it's easy for this old man to transport around.
Overall, a great Cabinet at twice the price. I've turned the Twin up to 6 at an outside venue and the speakers handled the volume without distorting.

Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

I needed a 2x12 and I was looking for an affordable one, so I decided to pull the trigger on the Bugera BV212 cab with the intention of replacing the stock Turbosound speakers with a WGS Green Beret + Celestion G12H30 Anniversary combination (Possibly filthiest, gnarliest speaker pairing I have ever heard to run a Marshall clone amp).

The cabinet itself is pretty lightweight, and yet solid ply. More lightweight than any of those MDF cabinets Marshall and Blackstar cranking out of their overseas factories. The plastic jack plate could be better though.

The speaker wires aren't long enough so I replace them. I did try the Turbosound speakers that came with it, it was just too flat and thin for my taste. The magnets are too light compare to the WGS Green Beret.

The cabinet has a good resonance, not too boomy nor compressed.

I'm pretty satisfied for its price. It feels more solid than the Marshall MDF MX212 cabinet. If anyone considering buying it with the intention of swapping the speakers, it is worth it.

    Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

    Sounds really good! I actually bought a Bugera 6260 last year to save the wear and tear on my 6505+ and this is a great little addition. Been a guitar player for 20 years and always used 4x12's. This has plenty of punch in a rehearsal space or on stage without walking all over the sound guys mix. loaned it to a friend for a gig this weekend in a heavy rock band and he loved it. Way easier to mic up in the studio too, put this thing on a combo stand in studio or even on stage.

      Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

      I gave this item three stars, rather than less, since I am aware that my situation is unique, and likely could have been resolved. I received a cabinet with a manufacture defect (one of the speakers has a torn/loose cone), which is not super surprising- I don't expect a whole lot from a cabinet at this price point. What sucks is that I had been needing an amp for a while, and I didn't want to go through an entire return process, especially one in which I will have to pay for return shipping (which for something at this weight, would not be cheap). So I opted to have it repaired locally. Overall, I'm a little upset that the item was broken upon arrival, but as far as Musician's Friend is concerned, shipping was fast, and I don't really have qualms with them other than them wanting me to pay return shipping on a defective item.

        Bought this as a cheap backup. I like the versatility of the multiple impedance wiring. Construction on the cabinet is good. It looks nice. The input jacks and panel seem cheap but they've worked so far. Mine had the turbosound speakers which sound ok. They haven't broken in yet so it's hard to judge them. I wouldn't trust this if I moved it around much or for gigs but it's absolutely worth the price

            Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

            My cab came with Turbosound TS-12G280AB speakers instead of the advertised Bugera 12G70J8, contacted Bugera and was told those have been discontinued.

            These are not the speakers in the 212TS-that is 30 more-that cab has TS-12G380AB-I know because I own it as well.

            I am not thrilled with either speaker, they are ok, but for me, I like a Vin 30 sound.
            That is why I replaced one speaker in each cab with a WGS Warehouse Retro 30-now both cabs sound great.

            The stock speakers are a bit darker and the Retro 30 really makes it come alive. I have owned 212's with both Vin 30 speakers-a bit much for me. I like having a mix.

            I play a Tri-Rec, 333, 333xl, and a 6260 out of these cabs and for me it has enough low end and mids with the one upgraded speaker in each that I have parted with my vin 30 412 cab.

            Don't sell your 412 and get this just yet, try for yourself. Again the stock speakers in these are ok, but I would recommend at least upgrading one.

            This cab is not the lightest, but still much easier to move around than a 412 cab.

                Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

                I thought I would update my original review from August of 2013, now that I have had this cab for over a year. The first thing to say is that I have changed both the stock speakers in this cab. It currently has an Eminence Private Jack and a WGS Reaper HP in it. These speakers were a big improvement in the sound to my ears. I will say that it is very subjective, of course. The sound I'm looking for may not be what you are looking for. To me the stock speakers sounded dark and kind of muffled. They are not very efficient (about 97 db, according to the specs a Bugera customer service rep emailed me). I have tried a Peavey Sheffield 1230 in this cab as well. The Emi and WGS combo is much brighter and louder than the stock speakers were. If you have an overly bright guitar or amp, the Bugera speakers may be what you're looking for, but I think the upgrade in speakers was a MAJOR improvement. There is not as much low end chunk as I was hoping for in a closed back 2x12, especially when I turn it on its side so the speakers are oriented vertically to get better projection. I may still experiement with other speakers for this cab. All in all the cab has decent construction and looks good. It is definitely a good deal for the money, and I love the back panel options for mono 4/16 ohm or stereo 8 ohm. I see that Musicians Friend is not carrying any Bugera gear at this time. That seems strange, but you can still get it at other dealers.

                This cabinet is the best one I've owned in the 45 yrs. I've been playing.. It's worth twice as much as it costs. It's sound is as clean as you want,yet with a tube amp it really shines when the amp hits it's "break-up" point. I've got the big combo which is this cabinet with a head and with this on bottom it rivals any 4x12" cabinet-head stack out there.. Buy it and you'll never turn back!!

                  Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

                  I bought this to go with a Bugera 1960 head that I traded a guitar for, I've only had it for a week so it may be too early to know if the tone will change much with more speaker break in, I've been playing combo amps for about 15 years mainly because of portability and because most of the playing I've done over the years has been at church and I guess I thought people would freak out if I brought a 4x12 half stack in just from the shear size of the amp , so what I was missing was the sound a closed back cabinet makes , I'm pretty happy with the tightness and punch this cab makes paired with the 1960 head , I'm hoping that the tone will mellow some because it sounds kind of bright on the high end but I've not played it with drums yet either and sometimes the sound that may sound too bright is just what it takes to cut through the rest of the band, I love the look of the cab with the Matchless style grill cloth and the fact I can use it stereo with my ADA MP1 and as an extension cab for my Bugera BC30 combo so I had a lot of reasons for buying this cab , so bottom line is I'm loving it although I may replace speakers later on , I highly recommend the cab , I gave it 5 stars for the versatility and for the price .
