The NV212T is a great choice for both flatwound and roundwound strings if you are playing rock, classic rock, funk or need a cabinet to cover many different styles of music. It is extremely open, and has a high degree of articulation in the upper mids and top-end. A pick player may reduce the tweeter level to allow the 12″ drivers to provide warm grind with roundwound strings, but half-way up (flat setting) should be just right for finger style playing when a lot of articulation is needed. The NV212T easily replaces your worn 4-10” or any of the vintage 2-12” cabinets and provides attitude, higher power handling and increased clarity and focus. If you already have an NV412/NV412T, this is a great way have that same sound in a lighter, smaller footprint.
