2 x 12 bass combos???

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Mikeus, May 30, 2018.


  1. Are there any good 2x12 combo amps out there? in a vertical cabinet?

    I can't seem to find any from past or present from any manufacturers???


    excluding the GK MB212

    I currently have a schroder 212L + peavy mini max setup that I haven't used yet but I'm selling it.

    I have owned a Bergantino AE212 cab which was awesome too.

    The best combo I ever saw was an SWR Silverado Special, diagonal. HUGE sound, but HUGE weight (93 lbs). Awesome tones, but I have never been so impressed with any combo since. I am no help. Sorry.

    Search Eden CXC 212, a combo similar to the Silverado mentioned above. I've never heard either but read many favorable reviews of both, except for the enormous weight they both had.

    Mesa used to make a Venture combo. Basically an MPulse 600 head inside a Powerhouse 2x12 cab.
    I used one briefly about 10 years ago. Big sounding combo, surprisingly easy to move for its somewhat odd dimensions and non-trivial weight. It had a roll bar and rollers on the back edge of the cab.

    Here is a pic of the Venture along side my Mesa Walkabout 12+15 stack.
    Still have the Walkabout, sold the Venture.

    The Mesa M6 carbine was awesome but yeah very heavy.
    2x12 reaches the limits of the combo form factor which works the best for small sizes.

    It has to be a combo? I really like my tc rs212 cab. It's a workhorse.
