    Hi Everybody,
    Looking for Barefaced cab owners who would be interested in a small get-together to sample other BF cabs. I'm SLOWLY rolling Barefaced Cabs trying to find my fit and I thought a GTG might be helpful for many of us in NYC who can only "purchase to try".

    If you have a cab and are interested, please reply with your cab/head and we can try to set a date/time/location. (Also include any info if you'd like to host.)

    I can bring a Barefaced Two10, Acme Low B-1, Acoustic Image Clarus SL-2 to the party. I'm currently interested in trying; Any BF cabs and lighter weight (≤33lb) cabs (Berg/MAS/RevSound/etc) as well as any heads.

    I can host (free$) in midtown (2blk from Port Authority) but, its not great acoustically, limited to about 6-8 people for up to 3hrs.​

    BYOBass, Let me know
    Thanks!

    I'd be interested but I live in central ct.

    I have 2 four 10's and a revsound 215 t. Mesa d800 for an amp.

    I'd like to try out a super twin and/ or big twin.

    I'm very interested, as I've been considering buying a One10. I don't have any Barefaced stuff to contribute, but could bring a ToneHammer 350, JMJ Mustang bass, and any pedals I have that people would be interested in trying out.

    HI mixedmeter,
    I was thinking about a cab-specific event, could you bring a cab for comparison?

    I don't own a cab, unfortunately, which is why I'm in the market ;)

    If @alexclaber wanted to sponsor our event with some cabs to try, Id love to host a playing party for all! Barring that, it'll have to be a local BYO BF cab comparison party... for now;)


    Again, we'll only need a few BF (or others) cabs, to make this interesting. We can switch out whatever heads are on-hand, get to listen while others play, and even jam a little. I see that after a week we've only got a 2% turnaround on views/replies, I hope that some more NYC area BF owners will be interested in a hang.

    <Spring time bump>

    As the weather is getting nicer it might be a great chance to get together and check out some BF cabs!

    A Sunday in midtown would be free parking and a free rehearsal space!! :thumbsup:

    That seems to be to the general sentiment.

    But without the cabs it’s not much of a BF GTG. Happy fir all comers ...but list your gear if you want in. It ant an open bar, it’s byob

    the 'when and where' are contingent on members, read the first post. Im happy to host a GTG here in the city if theres any interest, but you need to participate to make it happen.
