« One of the best 1x12 on the market! »Published on 05/14/14 at 07:03
This small 1x12 cabinet is very heavy (15 kg)! This is due to ElectroVoice speaker weighs just over 8kgs. The construction is obvious strength and quality. I owned an Orange PPC112 with a Celestion Vintage 30 and the Mesa is clearly in the upper range.
Level, the Thiele is amazing transparency. The sound is ultra-balanced, nothing protrudes. Bass / mid / treble, everything is at the same level, it is quite surprising! The richness of the bass content to bury a lot of 2x12 and even a 4x12.
In terms of distribution, regardless of where one stands in front of him, the sound is always audible. The Thiele sends its surprisingly broad way!
200 W eligible you will connect with a lot of different amp heads, whatever their power. Side of the coin, the Thiele request to be pushed to show all his qualities because I find it a little fuzz at very low volume.
All styles fit him, from jazz to metal. The sounds of my three amps (Marshall JCM 800 2203 Orange Tiny Terror and VHT / Fryette Pitbull CLX) are magnified.
I wanted a 1x12 very good for rehearsals and other café-concert. I think I have found the gem. Despite the high price, it is in my opinion one of the best 1x12 ever built. I do not know the new Thiele equipped with Celestion C90 specially developed for Mesa Boogie but it in Electrovoice is simply a killer. A heavy weight in the range of 1x12 cabinets!
Despite this, I still advise you to try before you buy because it is possible that neutrality does not suit you and you rabattiez a product equipped with a speaker sound more colorful.
