Romesh Kaiju 212 Vint G12


The Romesh Kaiju 212 Vint G12 is an official Artist-Series Release from legendary Producer and Mix Engineer Romesh Dodangoda, inspired by – and captured from – a custom Zilla® 2×12 horizontal enclosure outfitted with Celestion® Vintage 30 and G12H drivers.

It’s an iron-clad fact: few speakers complement one another better than the V30 and G12H. First up, the G12H: packing aggressive lows, powerful low-mids, a brutal upper mid-range and ice-cool highs, it’s a firm favorite for the ’boutique’ amplifier market and a bonafide guarantee you can cut through any mix! Next, the V30: synonymous with complex overtones, a warm low-end, an iconic vocal mid-range and crystalline buttery-smooth high’s, it’s an undisputed hit-maker, heard on countless recordings from the axe-wielding elite. Put them together and you’ve hit solid gold mojo. Rounding out the capture is a primo Zilla® 2×12 enclosure that provides a tight, focussed sound stage and resonance in all the right places. In short, if your performance lacks edge, this capture is a certified cureall.

During the extensive capture process for the “Romesh Dodangoda | Studio Essentials” collection, Romesh painstakingly auditioned every speaker in his cabinet assemblage. The results are – put simply – palpable and a sure-fire guarantee that you’re primed with the Crème de la crème when it comes to studio grade guitar sonics. In the Kaiju 212 Vint G12 the source cabinet’s G12H speaker was selected as the go-to tone for this capture.

Part of the “Romesh Dodangoda | Studio Essentials” collection, the Romesh Romesh Kaiju 212 Vint G12 has been captured with an exquisite selection of studio grade mics and a raft of primo recording peripherals at Longwave Studios. Enacted by Romesh himself, alongside our resident Capture Master (Adam Steel: Hop Pole Studios), expect the pinnacle in studio grade sonics engineered to deliver seamless adaptability from the studio to the stage.
