I've played every practice and every gig with this cabinet for over a year and it's got a few dings in the tolex, but where it counts, it still works great! Are there better cabinets out there? sure there are, but for a couple of hundred bucks, it's the best I found for the money.
First of all, I've waited over a year to write this review because I really hate the reviews that start off with "My parents just bought me this today... blah blah blah..." I want to know that it lasts and what it sounds like in different places.. not on a carpeted bedroom floor playing it soft enough so that the parents that just bought it don't complain...

I was on a pretty strict budget when I bought this cabinet to give an extra couple of 12's to my 1974 Fender Twin. I fully expected that I was going to have to, at a minimum, change the speakers fairly soon as the Twin is putting out 100 watts of Fender power, I just didn't think they were going to last. Well, It's been over a year and it's still rockin'. I stack the Twin on top of it, or lean it back for a monitor next to it depending on the stage set up we're on. in that case the Bugera is the speaker that the audience hears, and I'm ok with that.. so much so that I mic the Bugera Cabinet instead of the Fender,
The Tolex covering is not as durable as I would have liked, but if the pretty outside cover is where they saved the money, I'm ok with that. The Handle is huge which made stacking the twin on there a bit of a challenge, so, I bolted a 3/4" X 6" of plastic stock on either side of the handle that gives the amp a firm place to sit and gives the handle plenty of room. I put castors on the bottom so it's easy for this old man to transport around.
Overall, a great Cabinet at twice the price. I've turned the Twin up to 6 at an outside venue and the speakers handled the volume without distorting.

I don't think you could ask more from the insanely low price�ۡ��_ A cab at this price with switchable ohm, stereo and mono input with two 12's?!!! The Bugera styling is a bit odd with faux leather wrap, sparkly grill cloth and tiny gold piping but the construction seems good (basically transported it only twice so far�ۡ��_ to rehearsal then to a gig.) It's lightweight, seems solid. When I first played through the Bugera (with my AC15CC as the head unit) it was a little shrill on some settings (made the Distortion coming from my BOSS ME 20 have a more defined 'bouncy' digital quality) but when set to Overdrive or Metal the cab delivered a nice low end presence! I wouldn't say very defined but it felt good to balance the clarity of my Vox with some nice bass. After hearing the pronounce digital sound (which the Vox and broken in Wharfdale does a good job of transforming for the better) I decided to break-in the Bugera. Not wanting to rip my ears apart, I wrapped the cab around the back and sides with a dense comforter, placed a large couch pillow (at an angle to the grill) and opened her up playing for about 2 hours full throttle!!! The Bugera can deliver massive presence and seems to be losing that high tightness. I used the Bugera cab for a gig this past weekend and it felt good to 'feel' the notes played if and when at times it's difficult to hear over a hard hitting drummer. With so many options at hand�ۡ��_ Stereo capability, switchable ohms and 12's you can replace later down the line (if so desired)�ۡ��_ It's a fine upgrade for a musician on a budget AND�ۡ��_ I believe given some break-in time, the Bugera will only sound better.

Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

I needed a 2x12 and I was looking for an affordable one, so I decided to pull the trigger on the Bugera BV212 cab with the intention of replacing the stock Turbosound speakers with a WGS Green Beret + Celestion G12H30 Anniversary combination (Possibly filthiest, gnarliest speaker pairing I have ever heard to run a Marshall clone amp).

The cabinet itself is pretty lightweight, and yet solid ply. More lightweight than any of those MDF cabinets Marshall and Blackstar cranking out of their overseas factories. The plastic jack plate could be better though.

The speaker wires aren't long enough so I replace them. I did try the Turbosound speakers that came with it, it was just too flat and thin for my taste. The magnets are too light compare to the WGS Green Beret.

The cabinet has a good resonance, not too boomy nor compressed.

I'm pretty satisfied for its price. It feels more solid than the Marshall MDF MX212 cabinet. If anyone considering buying it with the intention of swapping the speakers, it is worth it.

Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

I gave this item three stars, rather than less, since I am aware that my situation is unique, and likely could have been resolved. I received a cabinet with a manufacture defect (one of the speakers has a torn/loose cone), which is not super surprising- I don't expect a whole lot from a cabinet at this price point. What sucks is that I had been needing an amp for a while, and I didn't want to go through an entire return process, especially one in which I will have to pay for return shipping (which for something at this weight, would not be cheap). So I opted to have it repaired locally. Overall, I'm a little upset that the item was broken upon arrival, but as far as Musician's Friend is concerned, shipping was fast, and I don't really have qualms with them other than them wanting me to pay return shipping on a defective item.

    Bought this little cab for my practice space to use with Peavey 6505MH (20Wtt) and boy what an amazing setup!
    Perfect for recording, practice and playing live. Doesn't get too muddy when turnt to max volume at all and stays warm and punchy!
    Totally recommended to anyone who's looking for a cab to practice or record!

      Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

      Bought this as a cheap backup. I like the versatility of the multiple impedance wiring. Construction on the cabinet is good. It looks nice. The input jacks and panel seem cheap but they've worked so far. Mine had the turbosound speakers which sound ok. They haven't broken in yet so it's hard to judge them. I wouldn't trust this if I moved it around much or for gigs but it's absolutely worth the price

          Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

          My cab came with Turbosound TS-12G280AB speakers instead of the advertised Bugera 12G70J8, contacted Bugera and was told those have been discontinued.

          These are not the speakers in the 212TS-that is 30 more-that cab has TS-12G380AB-I know because I own it as well.

          I am not thrilled with either speaker, they are ok, but for me, I like a Vin 30 sound.
          That is why I replaced one speaker in each cab with a WGS Warehouse Retro 30-now both cabs sound great.

          The stock speakers are a bit darker and the Retro 30 really makes it come alive. I have owned 212's with both Vin 30 speakers-a bit much for me. I like having a mix.

          I play a Tri-Rec, 333, 333xl, and a 6260 out of these cabs and for me it has enough low end and mids with the one upgraded speaker in each that I have parted with my vin 30 412 cab.

          Don't sell your 412 and get this just yet, try for yourself. Again the stock speakers in these are ok, but I would recommend at least upgrading one.

          This cab is not the lightest, but still much easier to move around than a 412 cab.

              Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

              I thought I would update my original review from August of 2013, now that I have had this cab for over a year. The first thing to say is that I have changed both the stock speakers in this cab. It currently has an Eminence Private Jack and a WGS Reaper HP in it. These speakers were a big improvement in the sound to my ears. I will say that it is very subjective, of course. The sound I'm looking for may not be what you are looking for. To me the stock speakers sounded dark and kind of muffled. They are not very efficient (about 97 db, according to the specs a Bugera customer service rep emailed me). I have tried a Peavey Sheffield 1230 in this cab as well. The Emi and WGS combo is much brighter and louder than the stock speakers were. If you have an overly bright guitar or amp, the Bugera speakers may be what you're looking for, but I think the upgrade in speakers was a MAJOR improvement. There is not as much low end chunk as I was hoping for in a closed back 2x12, especially when I turn it on its side so the speakers are oriented vertically to get better projection. I may still experiement with other speakers for this cab. All in all the cab has decent construction and looks good. It is definitely a good deal for the money, and I love the back panel options for mono 4/16 ohm or stereo 8 ohm. I see that Musicians Friend is not carrying any Bugera gear at this time. That seems strange, but you can still get it at other dealers.

              Great Option if you are in a budget, if you play metal read this!

              Comments about Bugera 212V-BK 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

              Well I bought this amp exactly because was in a budget, this amp is awesome if you play hard rock, blues or rock like the foo fighters and you are running in a budget, but for playing metal here is the deal: if you are a lead guitar take another option, for rhythm guitars is great. I used in this cabinet an Orange Dark Terror and the Marshall DSL15H using a Schecter 7 strings with EMG 81/85 so I would recomend you to save a little more and buy a cabinet for Metal styles like Marshall 1960, Mesa, Laney Ironheart... In my band we use this cabinet for the rhythm guitars.

              I went from a bugera 4x12 to this just for the size difference and i love it. I was worried at first because I was always use to that great 4x12 sound. I'm not saying that it sounds the same but I love it. I use this cab with the 1960 infinium for great blues and classic rock tones.

              This cabinet is the best one I've owned in the 45 yrs. I've been playing.. It's worth twice as much as it costs. It's sound is as clean as you want,yet with a tube amp it really shines when the amp hits it's "break-up" point. I've got the big combo which is this cabinet with a head and with this on bottom it rivals any 4x12" cabinet-head stack out there.. Buy it and you'll never turn back!!
