  1. Received my Barefaced Big Baby 2 recently.

    Sounds fantastic, build quality seems good and it performed well on its maiden gig last night.

    Ran it with my GK MBFusion and Spector Euro in a pub with about 150 people in it and it coped admirably with the volume needed. It was on top of a Big One that wasnt plugged in and nobody believed it was running in its own!

    Heres some pics includin a GK 212MBE cab for size

    Nice. I thought my Big One had cured all GAS, and it has for about 3 years now, but...

    I should know this, but what's in it? A 12 and a tweeter? Also, what was the wait time on your order?

    Nice. Nothing can touch the new wave of cabs for depth, clarity and shear volume per pound.
     
  5. Its a custom spec high excursion 12" speaker and an adjustable compression driver/waveguide setup.

    The wait is a bit misleading - i actually ordered it in July knowing that it was still at the prototype stage so it was a bit open ended. Alex estimated September and it arrived on Friday. Not a problem as i was informed all the way and i was happy to wait. It was worth it.

    How does it compare to The Big One soundwise?
     
  7. Havent tried them next to each other yet - just ran the BB2 on its own on Saturday night. The Big One just sounds massive and i dont think anything can physically kick out that much bottom in a much smaller enclosure so i'm not expecting it to sound the same.

    Alex seemed to think it would be pretty similar. You can get a load more sizzle out of it as it has a compression driver though.

    I wanted a 2nd cab that had a bit more sparkle to run at louder/bigger gigs with the Big One and Alex reckons this is the one - he's usually right it seems so was happy to give it a go.
