    I had a chance to gig with the Schroeder 1212 and I've also compared the 1212 to the 1210 side by side. Based on that I've fallen in love with the 1212. But I also like portability and play some tiny gigs where a single 12 is enough so I'm wondering if anyone has made a direct comparison between the 1212 and 2 mini12s and noticed any difference and what it is.

    Joerg, feel free to jump in with your opinions and to correct the spelling of your name ;)

    Since 2 mini 12s will not have any forward firing speakers I'm assuming there will be a difference but have no idea what kind. I'm mostly interested in how the tone will change.

  2. There are several bassists out there who own a 1212 and a Mini 12 and they are using them together at larger venues. If you like some details from me please email me:
    I'll be glad to give you more information.


    PS: "Joerg" is normally correct, but it turned here very often into "Jorge", that's why I skipped the "e" :D
  3. when i asked him about the differences he said the main one would be that the minis would have more punch due to the smaller cab

    I am also interested in hearing how two Mini's (I would think one Mini+ and one without the tweet) compare to the 1212. When I auditioned some of Jorg's cabs, the 1212 was my favorite of the small 2-driver boxes (I did not get to hear the Mini's) and the 21012 was my preferred bigger 2-driver box. But the Mini's look really intriguing (especially with the "flight case" style removable front cover!), and I'd love to hear a pair versus the 1212.
