    I've had this cabinet less then a week and I already love it. Its sounds great even at high volumes, and believe me it will handle those loud volumes with out adding any distortion. I'm playing a Framus Cobra head through it, so I am mostly judging this cabinet for high gain sounds. The hardest thing for me to find in a speaker cab is articulation in the low mids, and this cab defiantly excels at that. The bass and low mids are very controlled and clear which is important for high gain riffin'. The Thing I love most about the cabinet is the ease of mobility. It only weighs 51 pounds so carrying it back and forth from practice, and the studio is not nearly as much of a hassle as my 4x12. In fact, its not a hassle at all. Over all I give this cab a 5, simply because it has all the features I was looking for in a speaker cabinet, and it sound amazing. I truly believe that if you know how to operate your equipment properly, then you should have no problem getting a great sound out of this cab.

    I'm an old-school pro rocker that knows the good stuff. I have always had good experiences with the Marshall brand. This cab is Made in England, so I thought I'd buy one and give it a try. You know, lighten the load, but still stay cool with stereo and the Marshal logo...Even with a small crate powerblock the cab rattled.No problem, "I thought," I'll just tighten whatever is loose!When I got the thing open, I saw why it is cheap. It's made out of particle-board, except for the front speaker-baffle, which was flimsy plywood.The plastic input jack-plate allows stereo or mono operation, but it is the cheapest plastic jack you can find. Inside, they used a hodgepodge of different screws, carelessly driven at irregular positions and angles. The finishing inside was incomplete. There was absolutely NO acoustic dampening material. The back and sides all resonate at peculiar frequencies. There is a lot of wasted space inside and you can tell this is just a combo-amp cab without the amp. It is not a properly proportioned speaker cab or even a special design.I closed 'er up, and sent 'er back.The thing looks nice and is lightweight. If you play very quietly and don't mind the cheap construction or the possibility that you'll need to tighten the speakers, give it a shot. It is still overpriced even if they fixed the shoddy construction and thoughtless design.

    not a bad idea. no complaints.

    Comments about Marshall MC212 130W 2x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    I like this cab. I feel like this is a good quality cabinet. I use it with a Peavey Windsor head mostly and I can get some nice tube tone through it. I like the way it can handle a lot of power and not get annoying as it gets louder to the point where i feel that i need to get 4 12's or an 18"! These two handle a lot just fine. If you are looking to get great sound at higher volumes go buy the biggest best thing you can find. If you are looking to get something practical that sounds nice and won't disappoint, add one of these to your arsenal.

    Good Cabinet For the Money!!

    By Wolfie Player

    from Lawrenceville, GA

    Comments about Marshall MC212 130W 2x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    I run a 2005 Marshall JCM2000 DSL 100 watt head through this cabinet (with the bottom switch engaged) and there are no issues at all with this cabinet. I puch the cabinet fairly hard as I am in a two guitar band....friendly volume war each time we play and the cabinet has not sounded as if anything is loose, crappy or inferior. Now of course, it is not a Dave Mustaine Signature Marshall cabinet, but it did not cost 1200 either!!! The cabinet is a very good product for what I am doing, playing for drunk people in a bar. The only thing I may do at some point is to load better speakers in it.

    Marshall MC212 130W 2x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet

    By 61rocker

    from Nashville, TN

    Comments about Marshall MC212 130W 2x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    I am very happy with this cabinet. I play out very often and have not had any trouble with it at all. I play my Marshall 1970 Super Lead 100watt thru it and it cuts thru and sounds great. I have not had any noise or loose parts issues at all. Nice bottom and highs. For the money I paid, I am very happy. When I stack it on my 4x12 and use both cabs, it is awesome. So far I have not had to tighten any screws or had any muddled or flat tones. The right amp sometimes cures all......I know it is not constructed with the same high standards as the 1936 cab, but it is lightweight, fits in my Nissan Sentra, and keeps up with my friends 1978 JMP Master Lead Half Stack or his Vintage Modern, and even his 1984 JCM 100watt Lead Combo with no problem. For Value I give it 5 Stars....

    Looks cheap, sounds cheap, is cheap.

    Comments about Marshall MC212 130W 2x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    You can put a Marshall logo on a cardboard box, paint it black, and sell a million. It's lightweight, has cheapie speakers and parts, no skid trays, no casters, no white piping, etc. It's a stripped-down Marshall cab. I tried using it a few times live with my JVM. After the last rehearsal I ran home for my 4x12. This is blurry and unfocused, dull top-end, lots of broad undefined lows. You get what you pay for.Eventually I upgraded to a 1939 and ain't looking back. Great for beginners and those sporting MGs, but eventually you'll want to get something better. The 1939 is much different than this, MDF or not.

    Great little cab

    By p_matt

    from Crownsville, MD

    Comments about Marshall MC212 130W 2x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    I play metal and this cab has held up great at the higher volumes in clubs and on larger stages. It can keep up with my friend's Marshall half stack. The only thing that I might possibly change are the speakers. This is great if you don't have space for a half stack.

    Ok for beginners, not for the pro's

    Comments about Marshall MC212 130W 2x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    It's lightweight, looks good and is loud. But the excitement pretty much ends there. It's made of particle board except the baffle which is thinner plywood than it should be. Because of the cheap woods this cab resonates all over the place in wierd ways. There's a whole lot of lows and low mids going on, which sounds powerful at first, but then you quickly realize that it just dominates the whole sound. It's big fat unclear/unfocused sound. Feels more like a wooden balloon about to explode. For the price, it's a working stereo cab. If you're gigging in a large enough space you'll hear it alright, but in smaller places when the band is loud, this will disappear into mud mountain. Tried it with a JVM410 head and various other tube & SS amps.

    Pretty good cabinet

    By Kreed632

    from Conway, SC

    Comments about Marshall MC212 130W 2x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    I bought one of these to match with a Spider Valve head I purchased. I'm pleased with the tone this cabinet delivers, but will likely change the speakers out in time. The thing I was suprised about is that the cabinet is much lighter than I thought it would be. Very nice when you need to gig with it. This cab is capable of putting out some pretty good volume, so I would be just fine for a small club or if you mic it up to a PA.

    Comments about Marshall MC212 130W 2x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    I bought this cab for my mercury modified 5 watt epi valve head. I bought it because it was the lowest price marshall they had,and because it is a marshall.I have nothing to compare it to, and Im not a tone freak, but this little cab sure sounds good. Ive read thats it loaded with celestion G12M-65s,but have not opened up to take a look.Its just going to sit in my basement, but its built very solid so if it needed to be hauled around I think it would do just fine.
