  1. I don't have the original packaging. I don't feel confident I could wrap it proficiently from what i've got available. I don't trust couriers!
  2. No love for this? Am I asking too much? Fabulous cab, it's almost like a 2 x 12 but smaller and punchier. One handed carry. Extract from spec here: The magic is inside the box - a full 2-way crossover, akin to that found in the very best studio monitors, which splits the sound between the two speakers, so each speaker can concentrate on doing what it does best. No other crossover found in a bass guitar cab has this complex topology, with very steep slopes so it is all but impossible to overpower the midrange driver, so that you get no interference between drivers either side of the crossover point, and so that you get the most accurate and realistic sound whether you're the bassist, a bandmate or a fan. Feedback appreciated if you have a view, by PM please. Cheers, Andy.

  4. It must have been one of those urban myths. I can't find anything to support the theory, thanks for clearing that up for me!
  5. Brilliant clip! Wasn't this band put together by Paul Morley to prove that hit music could be "manufactured"? Opened the floodgates.
  6. PRICE REDUCED FROM £450 to £395. For sale is my Big Baby T bought used on here about five years ago and used by me for live work together with a BB Gen 3 (now sold). It has had the benefit of a Roqsolid cover (included in the sale) and is in good cosmetic condition as I've tried to show in the photos. All feet and corner reinforcements present, no dings or scrapes, works perfectly. I replaced the original carrying handle which was covered with a rubber sleeve which disintegrated. I live in Romiley near Stockport. I haven't got the original packaging so don't really want to get involved in couriering. I would be willing to drive a sensible distance to meet up. No trades thanks as this has already been replaced by a Super Midget. Any questions just fire away? https://barefacedbass.com/product-range/big-baby.htm
  7. I got the latch from the States. It cost about £14 and the same again in postage and only took about a week. Now I can't figure how to remove the inlay which protects the bass in its case to access the screws which hold the handle in place! I've emailed SKB and they say you just have to prise it out, it's held with a bit of glue! I'll let you know how I get on!
  8. Hey Pineweasel, I had a look and I would say that the exact part I need is listed. It's a handle attached to a locking latch, I just need to make sure it's the same dimensions and figure out how to remove it and install the new one. Thanks very much!

  10. My 2010 Fender American Standard Precision came in one of those moulded plastic (I'm sure it's a much posher description really) hard cases. Last week part of the housing which one end of the carry handle slots into snapped off, so I now can't carry it using said handle. Does anybody know if Fender do spares for their cases or is it a case of bodge, or buy a replacement? All I can find on the Fender site is basses. Thanks.
  11. Well you learn something every day! Thank you Bill for this insight, I hadn't appreciated the difference between the straight outputs and the bridged mode. I will rearrange the configuration accordingly. Best regards, Andy.
  12. Honestly, just when I think I've got my head round this impedance thing something gets said which makes me doubt myself. I've just put a head in for investigation/repair at a leading tech shop in the UK, I won't say which. When it came back from repair I tried it and it failed again. They took it back again and put it on test and can't find anything wrong. They've had it on load test for a week and it's fine. But that's beside the (this) point. Because the tech himself couldn't find a fault, he thought it may be the way I'm deploying my amp which is making it cut out. So he asked how my set up worked. So I explained it's a head with two channels, each of 8 ohms/500 watts, or a third bridged channel at 4 ohms/1,000 watts. I use the bridged option with two 8 ohm cabinets daisy chained. That's 4 ohms, right? He thinks it's 16 ohms? Am I right or have I just embarrassed myself again?
  13. I've got one of these which I've used on all my gigs for the last few months while trying to get my Tecamp 1000 repaired (now done). It's a cracking head and amazingly powerful for it's size, I put it through 2 x Barefaced BB2s and never had to have it over halfway, even not going through the PA. GLWTS.
  14. I have one of these. Brilliant. Tiny, simple to use EQ, huge sound. Bump for a great amp.
  15. Thanks. I've since played it through my stage amp (up to now I'd been playing it through a PJB Briefcase) with a Barefaced cab and it is absolutely.....well.....thunderous! Got a small gig tonight so will see how it sits in the mix. Once I get new strings on it as well the tone will change again. Might not make any changes in a hurry!
