Cabinets soon available at Bass Gear in Twyford

Recommended Posts

These five cabinets have been made for Bass Gear:

Two 1126 cabinets (one with tweeter). Beige/brown grille cloth.
Two S112 cabinets (vertical, one with tweeter). Black/white "snakeskin" vinyl.
One S212 cabinet with tweeter. Standard black vinyl and metal grille.

Hoping they will arrive during next week.

Bass Gear will try to hold these as a demo stock, so you should be able to go there and try them out as soon as they arrive.

Looks like they will arrive on Wednesday next week (22nd), so next weekend would perhaps be a good time to pay Bass Gear a visit. Maybe molan could confirm when they are in, unpacked and ready for testing?

It is entirely possible that I may fall in love with those snakeskin babies. . .

Wow, here I've been complaining about the lack of decent bass shops in my area, and it turns out that there's one within a 15 minute drive of my house. Hmmm, looks like I might be transferring some money out of my savings soon.

S.P.

The TKS cabs should arrive next week - if it's these you want to try then give the shop a call in advance to be sure they've arrived OK :)

I'm wondering how 2 x S212 would compare to my Berg NV610....

Oh FFS... the last thing I need is cab GAS.. good thing they aren't green like these or I'd be in trouble.

They could be for just £50 extra per cab. . . :)

They'd be a lot lighter :)

I like tall stacks :lol:

I've noticed the power handling on these though... I wonder what sort of volume they'd kick out if I threw everything my hartke had at one... Hmmm....

We had a top pro player in today checking out the TKS cabs at some serious volume - literally making the roof shake so little bits of dust were being dislodged from the ceiling tiles.

The 'official' vote was that they were definitely able to handle serious gig levels :)

Yip. I've been playing serious gigs with mine for a while now, and they handle 'em easily. :-)

A pair of cabs in British Racing Green with creme colour front frame would definitely be the thing...
My favourite variation on the theme is black cabinet, creme front frame and 50*s Fender grille cloth. I've ordered a pair of the new compact 115's in that colour, just like my 2126 cabs...

Really liking the look of the S212. Anyone voice an opinion on how "neutral" sounding these cabs are?

[/quote]What is neutral? They sound very, very good with four string basses. They sound very good but not that deep with five string basses. It is a matter of needs and taste, really. If you are a "sub bass player" better look at the deeper models. For four string playing they are all you need at a good price and low weight. This is no "bang for the buck" thing - it is a real bang...

What I mean is no real bumps or troughs in the eq, fairly flat response roughly like a PA speaker. From your description above they seem to fit that bill nicely for my needs as a 4-string player.

Compard to my previous cabs, a quadruple of Eden D112XLT's, the TKS cabs are very flat. The Eden cabs are HONKY in comparison...

You mean something like this?


If you have the time, come by Monday evening and they'll be waiting for you.
