Embee 1210 - 

I’m not usually one to write a general review of any kind unless I’m either driven by anger, or by complete amazement. Fortunately in this case it’s the latter,

I’m in absolute awe of the Embee 1210 cabinet I purchased earlier in the year. I have played through many different cabinets over the years, mostly favouring Ashdown and Trace Elliot, as I’m sure everyone has their “go to” gear they know and trust.

Over the past year I’ve been on the lookout for something more light weight than my usual rig, but without compromising on performance. A single 4ohm cabinet that I can use with a 4ohm head without the need for a second cabinet, to make transportation simple and less of a chore, but without losing the punch and power I have always craved.

After extensive and careful research I decided to go with the DB Embee 1210. The DB website is excellent, very informative, innovative and with the 1 month trial offer with the purchase it seemed less of a risk when spending your money and trying something new. I love the thunderous sounds of the bass, clarity and volume, so finding a cabinet which could perform how I wanted and still be light weight, I was prepared to be at best slightly underwhelmed.

The cabinet was delivered within days, perfectly packaged. The build quality and ergonomic features of the cabinet are faultless, this does appear to be an extremely high quality piece of kit, the cabinet also came with a high quality thick padded cover to protect the cabinet when transporting or not in use. The cabinet is without a doubt easy to lift and move around, the ergonomic handles and weight allow for it to be easily lifted above the waist, close to the body so it’s not banging low against the legs when walking, and it’s in no way a struggle to carry over long distances. On many occasions in the past I’ve had to endure the back break of lugging other cabs and combos around.

Although this cabinet is not one of these modern “light weight” cabs you can throw around with one hand like a bag of feathers, it’s in no way anything like dealing with the likes of an Ashdown ABM, 4x10, 1x15, or a Trace Elliot 1x15 combo (my other current rigs I can directly compare with).

I put the cabinet through its paces very quickly and was immediately blown away by its sound, this is without a doubt the best cabinet I have played through by a long shot, and the fact it is much lighter and more compact than what I’ve been accustom to adds to its appeal.

 

As previously mentioned, I love a low thunderous growl, this thing handles the a low B without breaking a sweat. I play in numerous bands and groups of different styles and genres, using a range of basses, no matter what the setting this cabinet powers through. Just when you think you’ve heard it all, the tweeter offers even more. I have honestly never experienced such a versatile and effective tweeter on any amp. Usually tweeter settings are limited with few options, and to be honest on many cabinets the distinction between the tweeter settings is minute. This thing is phenomenal to say the least, the rotary dial allows you to adjust the tweeter level, and with each increment you can hear the change in tone. The tweeter when dialled up brings out more of a bright twang to the attack, the level at which the tweeter can be set is significant with a phenomenal range.

 

I seriously encourage anyone and everyone to check out these cabinets, they certainly will not disappoint.

UK designed, UK made, the best of British.

Very well thought out little cab. Small footprint, sounds tight and punchy with a very solid low end.

The angle speaker is such a good idea, I can hear everything I play now. A new level in cab design. 

Well done guys.

Awesome cab, lightweight, and excellent sound dispersion, can easily hold it’s own with a loud rock drummer.

Bought one of these little buggers in August from The Gallery and absolutely love it. 

Embee 12 -

Clear and punchy across the whole frequency range, shifts some serious air for such a small cab.

Love the angled handles, really works. Well worth trying alongside the other cabs in the market.

Aside from the volume and low end this little box puts out , the clarity and definition across the entire frequency range was amazing. Stand right over the cabinet and it sounds like it's at ear level 

Most innovative bass cabs on the market right now. Please keep on doing what you are doing because the bass world needs this.

I’ve used many cabinets in my 30 years of playing, but never had such accurate and focused tone.

Couldn't be happier, fantastic job guys.
