    I'm thinking primarily the 210. I've done a search and nothing came up.

    Anyone got any opinions or could recommend a good 2x10 cab in the same price bracket (£300 - £500)

    I was originally going to buy a 2x10 & 1x15 but wonder whether spending the money on one good cab now and saving my pennies for a similiary good 1x15 should i need it later on.

    Only thinking about small to medium venues at the moment (A church mainly) and i will be using a HA3500 head.

    My other reason for looking at the H&K is i'm thinking about getting a H&K head further down the line.

    Thanks in advance :bassist:

    I have a Hughes and Kettner head (BassBase 600), and it is first rate. No experience with the cabs. But, there was a hread here in the amps section regarding the Hughes & Kettner combo amps, and everyone seemed to love them. Do a search.

    Yeah - i've read the combo thread.

    There is something about them that intrigues me and makes me want one :hyper:

    Don't know why :confused:
    :D

    I owned a H&K BC410 for a few years. Great cab, voiced to be punchy down low (as opposed to the Aguilar 410 for example which punches kinda higher), handled the low B extremely well, and was able to keep the tone together at high volumes. Great horn too, not too obtrusive. The cab didn't seem to have much of a high mid/low treble gap that some other 410' s seem to have. Great for rock and old school oriented tones. The build quality is ridiculous - massively braced, the grille alone must weigh 20 lbs, good cast frame wizzer speakers. A tough cab.

    BUT

    It was extremely heavy and kinda clumsy to move.

    the quantums are very light - the 2x10 21kg
     
  6. Whoa! :eek: Since I played that head several years ago, I always wanted one, but still haven't managed... Great stuff!

    H&K build quality is second to none IMHO. :bassist: Not cheap though.
