      Comments about Laney CUB CAB 2x12 Open-Back Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

      i've tried all kinds of cabs with the orange micro terror. the 8" orange cab. sounded super boxy. then a 112 randall rd. it was better but still boxy. then a 412 100 watt 16 ohm cab. way too much speaker for the micro terror. got this little cub cab 212 and it is amazing. the celestion rocket 50s are much better than what i was expecting. it carries the tone of the amp well. for just a small practice amp and this lightweight cab work extremely well and not for a bad price. its loud.

            Comments about Laney CUB CAB 2x12 Open-Back Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

            I bought this cab with three considerations in mind: 1) light and portable, 2) loud enough for stage and studio with a loud drummer, 3) attractive enough to live in my living room and appeal to non-musicians.

            It is definitely light and portable. The dual handles on the long edge are a nice touch in terms of portability and facilitating good lifting posture. The cab is not very heavy in and of itself and is a bit compact. I wanted these things. Still, it is obviously a 2x12, suggesting a substantial piece of equipment.

            It is black, to my eyes. The description says 'chocolate brown' sometimes online...but this is black. And it is attractive.

            I have not used it on stage or with a loud drummer, though in my private studio it seems like it would handle substantial volume without too much breakup.

              Great Cab! Rocket 50's provide great punch, clarity, articulation, and overall great sound. Any genre of music is suitable. You cannot beat this cab for the price. The greatest feature is the ability to get more bass driven sound by laying it down horizontally or boosting the treble response by keeping it vertical. Buy it, you will not be disappointed.

                Adds nice warmth as an extension cab for Mesa Express 5/50. Light, great price and sounds fantastic on the Mesa "Burn" setting. Up until now I have struggled with the Mesa's 5 Watt Class A setting with single coil guitars -- the combination can be a little shrill. But this addition lends a smooth midrange tone and tight bottom end. Just got it, so haven't figured out exactly where to put it. But so far, so good.

                  Comments about Laney CUB CAB 2x12 Open-Back Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

                  There are a lot of reviews and they all say things that are valid. But I would like to look at this cab in a different way. Think heads. There are so many in such an amazing range of sounds and features and so on. This is where is cabinet really shines. Having had mine over a year now and being able to try (or own) 7 or 8 different heads, what this cabinet gives you is what the head gives you. I think that is its real power. If you want clean, get a fender or vox and this cab will give you that kind of sound. Want to crush, micro-terror or Joyo Mjolnir or whatever. This cab doesn't get in your way, which is my point.

                  At this price point, my plan is to get another to leave as stock for live gigs. and take the older one, put two different speakers in it, add a removable back plate, and have cab that does color for recording.

                  IF I was forced to say something negative, this is a G.A.S. enabler. It's just too easy and you find yourself spending hours trying to figure what the next head is going to be. (Right now, I'm thinking the Laney IRT-Studio Se, but give me ten minutes and it will change. )

                  In the end, it is a great foundation for what sound you want to achieve.

                    Comments about Laney CUB CAB 2x12 Open-Back Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

                    I have been a fan of Laney ever since I bought and toured with a GH100L years ago. My touring days are over but I will be using this cab for low volume practice and band rehearsals possibly recording as well. Sound quality is excellent and tone character really shines through. May even use in smaller clubs when the house sound is decent. I am running a Blackstar HT5 head through this cab and it sounds just as good as my Fender 4x12. Less bass because it is open back but the Laney Cub Cab really projects well. Stock Laney HH speakers are decent may change out to something else later possibly V30's or Greenbacks. No regrets on this purchase as it will definitely save by back. Cab is light (about 30#) and compact/easy to carry. Looks pretty cool with a lunch box head on top in vertical position and the HT5 fits perfectly. Grill cloth was a little loose at the top and bottom so there is a slight ripple. Not a huge issue for me. Cabinet construction feels solid and the tolex looks great. I appreciate that they included rubber feet on two sides of the cab for horizontal or vertical placement. This is a small thing but Laney included swag stickers with the cab. Unnecessary but appreciated. Would recommend to most players as a very portable but quality cab for your lunch box or low wattage head.

                      Right now I'm running my Eleca EG-50T through this cab and the sound is great. Versatile, handsome, strong, and always ready.......Just like me! Seriously I've been waiting on this cab for awhile, always sold out quickly. Finally got my M/F rep involved and everything fell into place. There is a difference in the bottom end placed vertical vs. horizontal, at least in my little practice room-studio, and that's kind of fun to play with. It hasn't been on stage yet, and I'm anticipating it will handle the rooms we play in. I haven't tried micing this cab yet, but I'm looking forward to experimenting with mic placement. If you're looking for a light weight, versatile, good sounding cab this Laney Cub is a great option to consider, and the price is right.

                        I purchased this 2x12 open back cabinet during a time 15% off was available making it a great buy. I'm using a 100w "solid state" B52 head with tube mimicking pedals. This is a quality budget product that's pleasing to the eyes. Better than I expected!.........The carry handles do require me to use spacers in order for the head to be level on top. Non issue for me and not a typical set up, but it works! Classic Rock/Southern rock!

                          I ordinarily don't write lots of reviews, but I have to comment on the Laney Cub Cab 12X2. I have a Fender 15 watt X2 amplifier with an expensive Celestion upgrade 10" driver. However, when I unplug the internal speaker and plug into the Laney the difference is remarkable. The dual HH drivers are very efficient and handle a great deal of overdrive with no problem. The frequency response is smooth from bottom to top with no harshness in the mid-range. I would recommend this for any tube head under 50 watts.

                            I have owned several rigs over the past 20 years. I actually purchased this after reading several reviews in reference to setting this up with the micro or tiny terror. What a great combo I have to say. Don't let its size fool you, this thing cranks. Sometimes less is more for sure. Definitely can play at any gig with, depending on size may have to mic, but that applies to most situations anyways. I have no issues so far keeping up with a drummer or being heard over other band members. However if you plan to use the micro or tiny terror I suggest pairing this combo with a decent clean boost and compression pedal. I own a 75 watt spider iv which is very ear piercing but this thing seems to be way louder and sound much better. I am not in any means trying to say tube is better, as I feel it is solely a personal preference and most times something people are taught is best. Honestly nowadays manufacturers make amps very well it is hard to find amps in the Medium price range that sound bad, far different from some of the junk that was available when I first started playing. I would recommend this to anyone who does not want to have to carry around heavy gear and does not want to break the bank by spending several hunders.Tone almost always comes from the person not the gear, so don't be afraid to explore stuff like this rig.

                              This was a great deal. I got this cab and almost immediately replaced the speakers. I went with Texas and Swamp combo, 8 ohms each. I then removed the wiring harness. I kept it, in case I would like to return it to stock. I then took two 12 gauge speaker cables, cut one end off and soldered clips on them. I now have a 300 watt 2x12 that I can use either speaker or both. I plan on using a glue gun and gluing up all the seems.
                              Waiting for the speakers to break in, but its definitely a keeper. For smaller amps, stock speakers are alright. I am using this new set up with a Bugera 1960 Infinium and the results are deluxe.

                                I bought my second Laney 2X12 cab from MF about six months or so ago, and have been running the pair from my Bugera V22. I fell in love with the Laney tone with the first one that I have had for a couple years now, also a MF buy. My only concern is the the units seem lightly constructed but that also makes them easy to move. They can be used vertical or horizontal, not much difference on a carpeted floor, but noticeable bass boost on a hardwood floor. I have both cabs mic'd, one goes to a Tascam 112 mkII cassette deck (I tape my rehearsals and noodlin') and the other cab is mic'd into my Tascam DP 32. I have an Orange 4X12 cab, that I will also review, and the Laneys, while not directly comparable, stand up pretty well against the Orange (but there's twice the power going through the Orange, too-- also a tube amp).
                                Bottom line is that for the money, the Laney 2X12 cabs are a steal, and sound great too, very "English".

                                  The price was so low that I bought the unit figuring if I didn't like the speakers at least I had a good cabinet and could upgrade the speakers later. I was impressed with the quality of the unit when it arrived and blown away by the sound quality when I tested it out. First gig it sounded great and half he weight of my Mustang 4.

                                  I am using the cabinet with a Crate 150 Power block, a Boss GT-6 pedal and a Schecter c1-E/A with a Piezo pick up. With the combined Rigg, I cn get super clean sounds, get pretty darn close to the sound f a 12 string guitar and get s grungy as I want and the speakers stay clear as a bell. I will not get a chance to test it outside till our gig at the end of the month. But so far I am very impressed.

                                  Onlly small negative was the positioning of the handles. I moved them to have one in the center horizontal and one center Vertical and added wheels. Can't get much easier to bring in then that.

                                    Great cab to mic. It gives you a nice smooth tone, but the speakers overdrive nicely

                                      I bought this speaker cabinet to take to gigs with a small amp head rather than hauling around a larger/heavier combo amp. It does everything I expected of it and it is surprisingly lightweight without feeling flimsy or cheap.
