Barefaced Cab price hike

I'd rather use a black cab than red or yellow, the backline is there to be seen, not heard. Just like Victorian children!

I actually quite like the look of mine, with the black steel grille. A bit quirky. But then again, I play a MM Bongo Stealth so what the f**k do I know!! As you were! 😁

I like the black grill on mine too, and I play a Bongo Stealth 5 string, must be some kind of viral thing...

I would have loved a bongo, but too many dials for me, maybe thats why I needed up with a silver, I have not yet evolved, but I like the black too

I love the silver cloth- I've always loved the look of 60's Fender amps, along with others like Hiwatt and Sound City. The silver option gives me the chance to have a FRFR setup (in which I'm often modelling an old fashioned amp anyway) with the cool look of classic cabs. Is that a dichotomy? An incongruity? I'm not quite sure, but it's the best of both worlds to me.

Most of the stuff in my for-sale thread sold far quicker than I expected, so I ordered a Super Midget the other day. The first thing I saw when I popped onto BC was this thread! I know what to call that- an utter coincidence! Nice to fall on the good side of these things for a change though!

Even at todays price they may be out of some peoples reach

The Aguilar look the part but Mark bass and Vander RED! ones are too garrish for me

i like how the work and operate no middle man/free month trial etc and i think they will do well whatever price

i nearly pressed the button on a pair of Two10's in the New year but the funds i thought would be there weren't and i chose cheaper options

the only negative for me is the size,its a win win for weight etc but they lack a bit of presence on stage.Seen a guy with a one cab set up and it looked like his gear had been nicked

Yeah, I'd just woken up when I wrote that! Only just realised what compete nonsense I wrote, I obviously should have stayed asleep!

Make that 'heard and not seen, unlike Victorian children'!

Is it just me, or does that GIF make it look like Nick Frost's shovel bounces back and hits him in the face every time?!

They are great basses, they do very much divide opinion. I’m still in two minds whether to sell mine, I’m doing 90% rock covers at the moment and my Yamaha Attitude Ltd gets the nod most of the time. I’m also finding it hard to resist buying a Line 6 Helix and the Bongo could fund that. On the other hand I don’t actually need to sell it and and they are so hard to come by if I decided I wanted another! Decisions decisions!

Approx 10% increase.Thats a big hike in one go but I dont know how long since the last one...

Still puts a Super Midget at around £100 cheaper than an Aguilar SL112 in the UK.

I say good on barefaced - they gave everyone a real fair crack at getting them at the cheaper prices.  A lot of others just out prices up out of the blue.

Ten percent is hardly a huge increase. Let's hope they can maintain them. It's a tough market out there, but the US competition seem to be really expensive now.

A friend has an Aguilar SL112 (which goes for over £700) and it's only rated at 250W. It can just about keep up with a drumkit. My G1 Compact is significantly louder. The Super Compact, even with the recent price rise,  sounds like a lot more more bang for your buck than the Aguilar if you want a 1x12.

Anyway, the value of all existing Barefaced cabs just went up on the pre-owned market, so everyone's a winner.

 

 

Not really... my two cabs are not going anywhere, their value is locked. Now, if this had happened just before I sold my pair of BB2... ;)

      My BB2 gen 3: Tremendous cab, powerful & light. I'm not gigging at the moment and using a powered cab at home. Bought a couple of years ago from this esteemed parish and used occasionally.
      There's loads of information on the web about this cab & Barefaced has plenty here too: https://barefacedbass.com/product-range/Big-Baby-2.htm
      No dings, handle is secure, feet are solid. Padded cover by Hotcovers included.
      Collection from South London SE24.
      Sale only, no trades!

      For sale is my Barefaced Supertwin Generation 3 complete with Roqsolid cover.
      it is approx 2 years old. Always kept in the cover so no noticeable dings or scratches. The small cover to the top handle is missing as shown in the photo.
      These are great cabs - very loud and light. Also has casters built in for easier handling. These cabs retail for nearly £1000.
      2x12 1200 watts at 4 ohm. Perfect working condition and looks as new.
      I will not ship this but happy to meet within a reasonable distance of OX10 or SG1

      Very Reluctantly nd hesitantly, I'm looking at selling my retro 610.
      Serial no. 013, it's in fantastic condition and is by far the best sounding cab I've ever owned. 
      Best things about it are:
      - vintage tone and volume
      - big cab that I've always been able to move myself
      - fits in the small boot of a skoda fabia
      It's well looked after and a month or so ago was back at barefaced hq to have. Black grille. Whilst there they cemented down the tolex and gave it all a once over, so it really is in top condition. 
      Comes with a silver grille cloth if you want to change it, and a cover which is a bit worn, but has plenty of miles in it. 
      I won't post this, collect or meet only. Wellingborough, Bedford, stevenage areas of the country typically. 
      Happy to try and answer any questions. Thanks
