DB cabs UK made - massive discount

Recommended Posts

I mentioned these cabs a while back in another thread but no one seemed to pick up on the fantastic offers so here’s a separate thread to entice folk looking for a small portable solution and a new bout of GAS. I’ll be gigging my 112 Embee tonight in a small room with the country band and it's well up to the task. I believe the Elbee are the lighter cabs while the Embee have a more sturdy construction and additional features like the port and angled speakers. Worth a punt if you facny a change or need an additional cab for home use or going modular to accommodate differnt stages/venues.

A review and link to the discounted items below

How did I miss this? Been umming and ahhing over a BF one10 but the peeling tolex is an absolute deal breaker for me. Spent the pocket money on an UA Apollo twin instead and used it once in 2 months. Had too many mad dash gigs these would have been perfect for.

Well worth a punt. The Elbee 112 atop my Embee 112 would be quite the set up. I already have a very capable 212 which is the only thing stopping me to be honest!

I’ve a One10 since not long after they came out and my tolex hasn’t peeled. Is it supposed to be common? Mine’s a wonderful cab. So wonderful I want another!

I'm keeping an eye on the for sales, it seems to be a common problem. My Aggies are over ten years old now, they cost me the equivalent price and the fit and finish, apart from one or two slight marks is still excellent. I must be getting old because I really like having smart cabs!

You’ll not bag a bf110 for less than one of those db cabs at their sale price but the bf is possibly a lighter cab.

I’ve seen the 2 for sale with the peeling tolex but assumed it wasn’t common.

I much prefer my One10 than the Aggies I used to have. Absolute night and day. I’ve tried loads of Aggies and just don’t seem to get on with them at all.

As far as I know the peeling Tolex was an issue on older cabs but new ones havent had this issue. i have a two10 and used to have a six10. Neither had tolex peel on them. I may be wrong but I seem to remember them being made aware of the issue and fixing the issues our best bet if your worries is to email Alex at barefaced

It was quite common. The earlier ones suffered from that, then they changed the glue and said the problem was gone... but it wasn't (my two cabs come from that period). Then they changed both glue and tolex, I believe, and I *hope* they finally got it right.

Seeing as one of these is still two thirds of a secondhand one10 and after a full day of carting kit around into the small hours- trigger pulled, one of these is on the way.

Will do, I have a week’s worth of am dram pit work first week of December, hopefully the cab is ideal for it.

I just pulled the trigger on the Elbee 1210, because it's such a bananas design ...

That's why I bought mine! Wayyhay!

@scalpy what did you go for?

Elbee 10- rehearsals and pit work will be its primary source of employment.

I’d love to hear what the 10 sounds like compared to the One10 (I have no use for or interest in the tweetered cabs).

D'oh. I'd have had a pair of the 1x10s, but there's only one left.

A related question (and this applies to the BF 10s, too) - anyone know how a bottom port works? When I used rear ported cabs, I was always careful not to back them up against anything to effectively block the port, but a bottom port has a gap the size of the feet (less than an inch?), does this not compromise port output? Or have I just been wasting my time all those years?

That’s a bill fits question over in Amps and cabs 

  Do a search as it might have came up previously?

I couldn't see anything on the first couple of page search results, but yeah, I'll take it over there.

As you were...🙂
