    FOR SALE (not trade): My Barefaced Big Baby II (Generation 3) in as-new condition, with the padded Barefaced cover, at the below-market price of $850 including shipping in the CONUS. (See attached photos.)

    For veteran TB'ers, Alex Claber's Big Baby II (Gen. 3) needs no introduction -- it's famous as perhaps the most powerful and high-quality ultra-light bass cab on the market. Depending on the exchange rate, the British-made Big Baby cab costs $1100+ new (with cover) and typically requires a 3-4 week wait for importation. Save $250 or more and get one in mint condition right away.

    The BB II is an exceptional high-tech cab, ultralight and portable (29 lbs.) yet capable of handling up to 800 watts. As Alex C. says, it competes easily with high-quality 2x12" and 4x10" cabs at 1/2 to 1/3 the weight.

    My cab needs have changed this year and my BB II isn't getting enough use right now to justify keeping it. These Barefaced cabs typically sell in 1-5 days here on TalkBass, so act now if you're interested. You can't do better for sound quality, handling capacity, and portability.

    Here's further information from the Barefaced website (www.barefacedbass.com):

    Quantifiably the best small bass cab ever?
    A greatest hits compilation of our previous small cabs - the punch of the Midget, the efficiency and loudness of the Compact, the bottom, dispersion and clarity of the Big Baby T. It's hard not to love a cab that is potent enough to punch and thunder through a loud rock gig yet small and light enough to never leave behind, however difficult the journey or short the set. Clarity without harshness, depth without boom, fatness without mud. Incredibly even dispersion so it sounds the same wherever you're standing and however bad the room acoustics.

    What else do you need to know?

    • It's the first 1x12" to compete with great 2x12" and 4x10" cabs for tone, bottom and loudness
    • It has a fantastic mid/high waveguide compression driver for incredible dispersion and clarity
    • At the twist of a knob the complex crossover takes you from old school bass cab smoothness to uncompromising studio monitor accuracy
    • It's so sensitive you can gig with a 150W amp but it'll handle 800W amps without complaint for maximum output and headroom
    DIMENSIONS: 22" high x 17.7" wide x 14.6" deep

    WEIGHT: 13 kg / 29 lbs (steel grill)




    127dB - similar to what a high quality 2x12" or 4x10" cab can manage
    before the lows fail to keep up with the mids
