The new Marshall MX212 2 x 12" 150-watt speaker extension cabinet features everything we've come to expect from Marshall: solid construction, superb finishing touches, road-ready reliability, sublime hardware appointments, crisp tones and that enigmatic Marshall logo. If you're looking for the perfect compliment to your tube amplifier head, then this is the cabinet for you.
Solid build quality
The cabinet is built using solid MDF, giving a fantastic inner enclosure that is strong and supportive, whilst remaining supple enough to allow the speaker to move freely. As has been a feature of Marshall amplifiers and cabinets for decades, the enclosure is covered in tough and resilient tolex; protection from knocks and bumps, grip so it doesn't slide around onstage or in transit and a distinctively brooding finish. Offsetting the black tolex is white binding around the front speaker grille. Each corner of the outer enclosure is protected by a corner brace, adding further support in case the worst should happen.
Within the cab are two sweet-sounding Celestion Seventy 80 speakers, which are responsible for delivering your tones with a definite emphasis on a lively midrange, accentuated by rumbling lows and raucous highs. The upper frequencies have plenty of clout, ensuring that the energy and character produced by your tube amp is faithfully reproduced through the speaker. Modeled on the incredibly popular G12M Greenback speaker, Celestion have captured all of the charm of the Greenback but they've given it way more bite. From chunky low-end rumble, simmering mids, sharp highs and awesome linear frequency response, the MX212 is adept at handling high-gain power with the utmost clarity.
Easy to transport
The speakers may be powerful, but the enclosure is designed to be compact enough to slot into any environment discreetly. A solid top strap handle is fitted to make the cabinet incredibly easy to carry. Don’t be fooled by its diminutive size, the Marshall MX212 2 x 12” 150-watt speaker extension cabinet is built to roar, packing two loud and proud Celestion Seventy 80 with masses of attitude. If you’re looking for a gigging partner then this awesome cabinet has more than enough power to get you through any gig.
