Harley Benton have just played a very strong hand in the guitar cab market with the release of its Plus cabinet range. A wide choice of options with 18mm baltic birch, removable grille cloths and variable open backs with UK-made Celestion Greenback and Creamback speakers. 

The G12M Greenback, V30, G12M Creambacks can also be ordered in mixed combinations, and the cabs are also available to order unloaded.

All the cabs come in black Taurus tolex with white piping  and a black grill cloth plus metal corners for protection and non slip anti vibration rubber feet.

The cabs come in four main variants; G112Plus, G112Plus Thiele, G212Plus and G412Plus. "The G112Plus series feature a semi-open back design, for an airy, warm sound," state the company while the Thiele offers a "more focussed and direct response."

The other two larger ranges bring the option of Vintage 30 speakers, in addition to the Creamback and Greenback models offered in the G112Plus and G112Plus Thiele cabs. The G212Plus series come in both a horizontal and vertical format with open and closed back options.

Harley Benton calls the G412 its "quintessential rock cabinet" – and for those who want to stack, we salute you. "Our G412 Plus comes loaded with four 12-inch Celestion G12M-65 Creamback speakers, Celestion G12M-25 Greenback, or a combination of Greenback and Vintage 30 speakers," states Harley Benton. There's also the option of open or closed back and these cabs are available to order without speakers too.

Prices start at £88 for the Harley Benton G112Plus Unloaded.
