Preposterous output and clarity from a single 12XN driver.

Can replace cabs twice its size and with more than twice the cone area, thanks to the huge cone excursion, massive power handling and high sensitivity. Even smaller and lighter than the Big Baby 3 due to the minimalist design - no crossover, no HF driver or tweeter, just clean highs that roll off smoothly in the mid-upper treble region. And a smaller enclosure due to the more conventional bass cab sound in the lows = more fatness and thump.

Now with our low distortion tweeter, custom crossover and full HF control for increased brightness and extended treble clarity - but the same tone as a standard Super Compact when you turn the HF control on a Super Compact T to zero.

Also now available - the Super 3rd. This is the Super Compact reshaped to stack neatly with a Super Twin, to give you an awesome 3x12XN stack (hence the "3rd" in the name, it's the third 12XN in the stack). This is also customisable with a tweeter and HF control. The Super 3rd weighs the same but the dimensions are 39cm 48cm x 34cm or 15.5" x 19" x 13.5" (H x W x D). The strap handle is moved to the top because that's more ergonomic for lifting it onto the Super Twin.

We prefer the Super Compact's form factor as a standalone cab or as a two cab stack but the Super 3rd is such a cool way to give your Super Twin rig more height and even more output - looks and sounds epic! And now that so many amps will run down to a 2.7 or 2 ohm minimum load they can drive a 3x12XN rig happily.

Need more output? Add a second Super Compact to make a modular Super Twin or a Super Mini to make a versatile modular rig with three size options.

The Super Compact stack performed admirably this weekend.

But there's just something about your 10's that does it for me, I like that colouration.

On Sunday evening, with the band following us at the festival, was a very old friend of mine, Shug. He's just a great bass player, one of the best around, who I first saw play in around 1988. At that time he was using an old SVT and an 8x10, and I immediately realised how a bass really should sound. On Sunday, he brought a BF Six10. It sounded wonderful (however he is also a great player). That night started me thinking. The Six10 is a little bit too heavy for me, the Two10 (I've had one), is eclipsed by the SC stack, so I've been looking at your Three10, and tonight I've ordered one from your website. 

Keep up the good work.


Hi Rob,

Thanks for the feedback, that's great to hear! And thanks for the order - the Three10 does hit a nice sweetspot!

Your gear is phenomenal. I've been using it for over 10 years now, I will never play through anything else. My sound is mine, finally after 37 years of playing bass and still going.

Just a note to say that my SC arrived last week safe and sound. I tried it in a rehearsal yesterday and it's everything I hoped it would be. Punchy yet transparent. It's given my amp's EQ section a purpose! I have lots more control now. Love it.

I just received my Super Compact today (surprisingly quick actually).

It’s absolutely gorgeous, and it sounds incredibly well… at home for the moment. I can’t wait to try it with my band.

Big big thanks to all the team.

BTW., can I also say how completely delighted I am with my cabs.  It is such a rare thing when reality lives up to expectations but your cabs certainly do. They are everything your said they were but that doesn’t quite capture the feeling, the satisfaction, of playing thru the cabs – simply a different world !!!
