Very nice! I've always liked the idea of that combo. Be interested to hear after you've gigged with it.

The cab version has to be the best single 12" cab I've ever heard, very clear and even across the range, very light, well built. Could handle anything I threw at it style or power handling. The horn was beautiful without getting harsh. I only sold it as I'm shallow and don't like the yellow or the rat fur.

This would be fantastic with the tilt back stand too! The cab you can't sit an amp on it tilted which was always tricky without velcro.

oh yes! im actually totally blown away by this little combo, very clear, enough grunt that i ran it both gigs by itself without p.a support, in a 5 peice with 2 guitarists using a roland blues cube and yamaha thr100+212 and a keyboardist using a bose L1, its not chest thumping like the TTE500+NV412 but theres enough presence there, i was considering adding the matching 1x12 but i think between the combo, epifani 310 and berg 412 ive got it all covered

little bit of video evidence

Nice! I think it’s about the best one 12 is ever going to sound. And with an amp, and still only 16kg! It’s a shame about the rat fur and yellow or I’d be back in a shot. Glad to hear it’s floating your boat!

Great choice - love my 121H combo the weight and power is amazing - done my back in recently so looking to definately lighten up my lugging load with my GK rig..
Got me wondering though - obviously the 121H cab would be the perfect ext cab but has anyone thought of using the Ninja 122 ( 8 0hm ) for a kick ass 3 x 12 small footprint rig with this combo?
Cool vid Heath :)

Hmm, at 18kg you're carrying extra weight and size, I'm convinced the 121H would get you there. Also with one 8 ohm ninja cab drawing half the amp power and the internal 8 ohm speaker drawing the other half, the speaker in the combo is working twice as hard as the two in the ninja cab, making most of the sound come from the single speaker in the combo. If you had the 121H cab it would be even. I've never tried the ninja cabs but it would have to be something to beat the 121H cab for size, weight and sound quality, and it's already losing on two fronts.

That ninja would make a kick ass cab on its own with just a head though.
