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.

Great Value for your Money

Ask me a question

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

I dont think there is any CAB in the market that equals its features for the same price point.

If you think the stock speakers are stiff sounding, just play it though a couple times and it'll open up
I like that it has the ohm switching switching at the back

2 bugera speakers that are Jensen style with balanced sound to them
The build quality of the cab is very good, i initially expected less but was surprised how the construction was

The faux leather isnt that thick and might scratch easily(so i gave it a 9 there)

however if Tone is all that matter..definitely a 10
for not alot of money, it offers good value

Surprisingly good cabinet

By Mike-7SXCZ

from Lawton, OK

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

When I purchased this cabinet, I was upgrading from a 15w practice amp to anything I could find in the $500 range. After finding a deal on a 333XL head in great condition for about half the retail price, I decided to start looking at cabinets. I decided I would get this one so my head and cabinet would match, and if I had to replace the speakers down the road, then so be it.It's been over a year since I've gotten this cabinet and I haven't touched the speakers. They sound VERY good for the price point. Perhaps my only issue with the cabinet was that the handle is so thick that I had to remove it so my head would not rock when it was set on it. On the same note, the cabinet is light enough that I don't have any issue bear hugging the cabinet everywhere I take it.

Pretty solid for the price... but not spectacular either.

By Jeremy

from Beckley, WV

See all my reviews

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

I like this cabinet and think it's a great perfomer for the price. Granted I haven't had time to use the cabinet extensively but I am pretty familiar with my amps and know what I want them to sound like and how to dial that sound in fairly quickly. In my opinion if you have a darker sounding amp and you need to offset that mudy or dark tone then this cabinet would be a solid choice in the budget category. I have two heads, a modified B-52 ST100A tube head and a Kustom solid state head. Neither amp is dark and to my ear the tube head especially has a nice balanced/versatile tone with the right cabinet. I had to play around with the tone settings and the rectifier class quite a bit on my tube head to get a decent sound. The cabinet is very bright on the high end, to me in a somewhat brittle way. I was able to get a decent tone after much playing around, but I still don't like the top end tonal quality. Even when well adjusted it's a little harsh and brittle. The solid state head exaggerated the top end even more so, I feel that the only use with the solid state head I will be able to get with this cabinet will be for certain metal styles or maybe if I need a really bright clean sound.

I like the cabinet well enough to keep it and the tone is definitely acceptable at this price point, but later on I will almost certainly replace the speakers with higher end options. It's not really fair to compare the cabinet with ones costing so much more and it does admirably in competing considering the price, but if you're used to or hoping for "upper end" speaker cabinet sound and you're amp tone isn't on the dark side, this may not be the best fit right out of the box.
Does pretty much what you can expect a speaker cabinet to do. Has the ability to run the cabinet in stereo with either 2 amps or with a stereo head. Be careful that you read the manual or back plate very carefully! The cabinet doesn't have an ohm switch, the ohm rating changes depends on the mode you're running it in (mono or stereo). If you're using a tube amp make sure you know which ohm setting you'll need to run your head in to avoide damaging you amp!
Pretty solid build. A little lighter than I expected which probably means that speakers are only so so, but for the price it looks and feels built pretty nice. Seems like it would hold out well enough and be reasonably durable, but doesn't feel solid enough to where I think it would hold out against heavy abuse or a road tour without some kind of protective case.
For the price it's a pretty nice cabinet. Not exactly what I was hoping for but also not bad by any means either. It gets close to what I wanted and so at this price point I thought that was pretty impressive since I'm comparing it to cabinets that are triple it's price or more. Pretty great value!

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

    I compared this cab to my buddy's Avatar 2x12 cabs right after I got it. He has one loaded with Celestion 25w greenbacks and one with Avatar Hellatone 60s (which are Celestion Vintage 30 speakers that have been mildly broken in). The Bugera is loaded with Bugera 70w speakers. The stock speakers seem to be tonally similar to the greenbacks. The Bugera speakers do not sound anything like the V30s. If the V30 sound is what you want, the Bugera cab is NOT for you. I very much prefer the greenback sound, and the Bugera speakers are definitely in the ballpark of the GBs. They do not sound as good as the Celestions, they are a little darker sounding. THe Greenbacks are more open and sound fuller. But for the price, which was less than half what my friend paid for his Avatars, they are a great deal. I will upgrade at least one of the speakers in the cab eventually, but I do not feel any rush to do so. The stock speakers sound very good, and I am extremely happy with my purchase.

    Better than anticipated

    By i dont know-aF5O.

    from Nor Cal

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

    First off, I ave played out of many cabs. I own a Mesa 4-12 slant, a Marshall 1960A, and a Behringer 4-12 slant. And I have played out of an orange 2-12 cab, and a B-52 4-12 cab. Now when I bought this cab I was expecting the same sound as the Behringer cab I have because it has Bugera speakers in it before Bugera started making amps. This was not the case. The Bugera cab sounded worlds better than the Behringer cab. I prefer it to my Mesa and Marshall cabs as well. The orange cab however is a close call. They both sound really nice. I recall the Orange cab sounding more fizzy than the bugera but I like the fizzy sound for some types of music. So to me the bugera sounds like an orange 212 without the fizz. You will not be dissapointed with this cab. Tolex could be tougher and the handle on the top is kinda dumb but other than that its great.

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

    I wanted an inexpensive 2x12 cab for my Blackstar HT-5 head. I anticipated at the price point that someday I would want to replace the speakers...I figured they would be sub-par. I got around to replacing one with a WGS Retro 30. The stock speaker is about half the weight of the Retro 30 but sounds much better...not as harsh and much smoother. The Retro 30 is sufficiently broken in. Do not disregard this product because you feel the speakers might be cheap...they sound very good...at least with my set up.
    Very flexible features...everything you would want in a cabinet.
    This product is of particle board construction...but for me it stays in the studio so weight and sturdiness are not an issue.
    Good product for the price.

    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!!

    the construction and cosmetics of the cab is great. good options able to run in mono or stereo. where it lacks is in the speakers, but what do you expect for the price. I would not buy this cab unless you plan to swap speakers. once i did (eminence swap thang and a warehouse speakers veteran 30), the sound came alive. what a tone!

    Bugera 2X12 Box

    By L. P. Teleman

    from Central Oregon

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

    Here's the deal on these boxes they are built out of partical board so they are pretty strong and a litte on the heavy side, not the best but look at the price. I have the Bugera 55 watt head and two of these boxes. The stock speakers are not that bad but I slipped in a couple of Celestion Vin 30's and that improved the sound a ton but the speaker for the classic rock and other stuff I play for this setup is the Jensen C12N (sounds like my old SUNN stuff back in the day. This amp with the two boxes stacked could not look any better. The only other thing I am not real cool with is that the tolex is a little on the thin and soft side so it tears and indents more readily than say a Fender Tolex. Pretty cool stuff for the price!

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

      This cab is very good. I have other cabs (mostly 2 x 12 - which is my preference) which have cost significantly more money and are loaded with 'name' brand speakers (Celestion or Eminence), this cab sounds just as good as my best cab.

      I am a real stickler for quality speakers and wasn't sure how the bugeras would sound, I've swapped out bad speakers before and know what a huge difference in sound quality a good speaker cam make. Typically what I look for in a speaker is high sensitivity (98 spl), power handling - minimum 60 watts per and the weight of the magnet. All of my speakers (didn't open the Bugera - so don't know about sensitivity or weight) are high end and expensive guitar speakers, typically Eminence speakers but I got a couple of Celestions, very old but they sound great. I A/B'd this cab to death and it sounds as good or better then any I have, not quite as much of that brittle sparkle that some of my cabs have, - but I like it that way.

      These are definitely winners (FYI - I'm not a pro - so my cabs stay at home, they get less abuse).

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

      I'm gigging musician that plays in a '60s rock-n-roll cover band at night clubs every weekend. I really liked the Bugera V55 HD I bought used and re-tubed, it's been a reliable workhorse for me for nearly two years, so when I saw one of these matching cabs used on CL, I figured I'd give it a shot. After two gigs, I gave up on trying to make it sound good. It is very sterile sounding, totally lacking in dimension. So I removed a third of the back panel, and swapped the cheapo Chinese Bugera speakers with their lightweight magnets for an old British-made McKenzie out of a Marshall cab, and an Eminence-made Reverend Alltone, and now it sounds fantastic!

        I wanted a stereo speaker cabinet and this was the least expensive I could find. Didn't want a 4X12. This is a 2x12 and it fit the bill. Plus it can be configured to run in mono with a flick of a switich. At 50+ pounds it is not exactly light, certainly lighter than a 4x12 cabinent. I don't like the handle as it sticks up too high and won't allow the amp head I am using to sit level. I just unscrew it after I move it. Still a pain as I know I will loose the screws someday. They should have handes on the side. May do this myself. Using it with a Fender Mustang V amp head running stereo. Sounds good.

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

          I purchased this cab as a "do all" piece of equipment. I have a couple of different heads and I wanted the versatility to run either 4/8/16 ohms.
          The 4/16 ohm setting is in mono and the 8 ohm is in stereo.

          When running mono, the amp has a lot of room to breathe in that those Bugera drivers sound fantastic. In the 8 ohm position, it's possible to run two heads in stereo or simply use just one of the drivers.

          I ran an Orange Micro Terror in all three settings and it sounded just fantastic. In stereo, the Micro Terror and the EHX 22 caliber (with a Character series pedal in front of it) gave me an amazing spectrum of tone with a true stereo image coming out of my TC Nova System.

          Bugera speakers are the real deal. The cab is sturdy enough and will last if you don't beat the heck out of it. It's not plywood so it's not going to hold up to massive abuse. However, it's not going to fall apart on you either.

          Overall, this is THE cab deal out there. The only thing I would like is a convertible open back but that's an easy enough mod.

          Features? A well built cabinet with 2 x 12" speakers.
          Seems very well built. Solid with excellent finish.
          Can't beat the "bang for the buck" value.

My only complaint is that the size of the cab is much larger and heavier than I was hoping. Love the ability to run these stereo so much that is now my default. Huge upgrade for me sound wise. Just wish it could be a bit more compact.

          Great bang for the buck.
          I have bought a Bugera combo amp V-55. A 1960 head and a 212v-BK 2x12 cabinet in the last year. The tone, sound and the quality have been the best I have ever come accross. The price is the biggest pay off. I love this stuff. Marshall plexi, 60's sound at a fraction of the cost. It's rugged and well made. Longevity?. I don't know yet, but I'm sold on this stuff.
          Great tone Built well.
          Great value.
