    I’ve owned my SC20H for about a month now and I’m really digging it. I’m playing a Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro III and a Gibson Flying V faded thru and I’m having a blast. For the moment I’m running it through a Peavey 1x12 cab that I got stock with a UK made Greenback speaker and it’s really good. I have been thinking about getting a 2x12 cab for the amp in the near future. A Harley Benton cab has popped for sale on Facebook near me for $185. It’s the cab that comes with Vintage 30 speakers in it. I’m tempted to sell my 1x12 cab and get it. What do you think?

    I woudda bought first, then, maybe, ask... I like V30 speakers. All the reviews say this is a solid cab.
    Soooo
    HELL YEAH!

    Edit: No, I don't have one (yet).

    I'd say get it but keep the other one a while so you can compare. Can always resell one of them later.

    I'll say get another 1 x12 cab. I prefer 2 x 1 x 12's myself.

    p.s. never the less the HB cabs have a good rep and they are V30's.

    I had the HB 1x12. It sounds very good and for the price point it's a killer!

    If you have the chance, and budget, also check for some used EVH 2x12 with the G12H Anniversary. I have one (I have some V30s here too) and with my old major the EVH sounds killer. It's a matter of taste, but for the right price you won't have to wait for the new cab and you will skip the breaking in period.

    In Europe that HB cab is a killer deal.
    I think over here it is cheaper to buy that cab loaded with V30s than to buy two V30s separately!

    The HB Cab is great, maybe a little thin tolex. but for the money, a fantastic deal

    I don’t think you can go wrong with a Harley Benton cabinet. I have no personal experience with them, but everywhere I go I see folks that love their Harley Benton cabinets!

    In fact, now that I think about it, Everyone seems to enjoy Harley Benton products, especially their guitars! For $150-$200 you can get a really nice sounding/playing HB guitar,....at least from what I’ve read.

    The HB guitars are great for the money, I have only tested the Harley Benton SC-Junior Vintage Sunburst that a friend got, great guitar.

    Around 220 $
