The current lead time is 3-4 weeks. Shipping to the UK and USA is next working day. Shipping to the rest of the world is less than a week. And UK customers, credit is available through V12 finance - 0% for 12 months.
Ordering and payment
It's new! Simply add the cab of your choice to the cart and click buy! When the cab has been paid for we'll add it to production! You'll receive a confirmation email from us and can get in touch with questions at any point. Please ensure you choose the correct region from the drop down menu. We will not refund any fees incurred by selecting the incorrect region and fees may be incurred on the refund amount.
We've got you covered!Our covers are available to order with your cab. If you want a cover please ensure you order at the same time as ordering the cabinet by using the drop down option, otherwise you will incur shipping fees (which can be quite spicey overseas). If you forget to order a cover with your cab you can either purchase one at the shipped price or cancel your order and process again. We will not refund any fees incurred by forgetting to add a cover and fees may be incurred on the refund amount.
If you live near Brighton you can arrange to collect your cab rather than have it couriered. Select UK collect from the region drop down menu, when your cab is finished we can arrange a mutually convenient date and time for collection. If you'd like to try some of our cabs then please email or phone and arrange a time to pop in. We also have a number of demo cabs which we're happy to loan out for gigs/rehearsals. Contact us here
Trial period and returns policy
We offer a ONE MONTH trial period* from your date of receipt of the cab until your date of returned postage - no trying these cabs in a shop and finding out they don't work on the gig. Use the trial period to give your cab a true workout so you can be confident it will provide you with tone and volume for years to come. Give the cab a good few hours of loud use to both loosen up the drivers and let your ears adjust to your new tone.
If you have not been in touch before ordering, we will ask you a few questions to make sure it's the right cab for you. If you choose to buy a cab which we state is not the best fit for you, then the trial period is no longer applicable and cabs cannot be returned (unless faulty).
Should you find your purchase unsatisfactory in any way you have the right to return your cab within the first month, undamaged, for a full refund of both your purchase price and the outbound postage and packing charge. Please retain all the original packaging and do your best when repacking to ensure the cab will survive the return journey - if the cab is damaged due to inadequate protection you will be liable.
If you're in the UK, unless you prefer to arrange an alternative method, returned cabs will be collected by Fedex and the cost deducted from your refund. Our smaller cabs cost £30 to return to us, our larger cabs £40. Returns from elsewhere in Europe need to arranged by yourself at your own cost.
*We cannot offer the one month trial period on the EIGHT10 or FR800s as they are built to order or on any models shipped to customers outside Europe due to high transport costs.
Finally we can offer finance to our UK customers! Something we've been looking forward to and working hard for. If you wish to purchase a cab on 0% finance over 12 months please select 'UK finance' from the 'region' drop down menu on the product page to pay a 10% deposit. We will then contact you with an application. Should you be successful the finance company V12 will guide you through your repayments and we will process your order. Sadly at the moment this option is only available to UK customers. Credit provided subject to age and status, T&Cs apply. Barefaced Audio acts as a credit broker and only offers credit products from Secure Trust Bank PLC trading as V12 finance. Barefaced Audio is registered in England: 06812542. New England House, Brighton. BN1 4GH.
Options and accessories
All our cabs apart from the SIX10 and EIGHT10 come with black steel grills as standard. Silver cloth grills are extra cost options on all the bass cabs. As well as our awesome bass and PA cabs we can also supply 1/4" cables, Speakon cables, covers, T-shirts, hoodies and beanies. See the accessories for more.
Value vs Pricing
We would love to make these cabs less expensive but we believe in paying the extra to use the best quality components and the ultra-lightweight but very stiff cabinets take a long time to build. Furthermore all our cabs are hand-built here in the UK rather than mass-produced overseas by lower paid workers. We keep prices down by selling most of our cabs direct but our improved production efficiency means we can now sell through selected specialist retailers if they're willing to accept a lower profit margin than typical.
Don't compare these speaker cabinets with equally small or light ones - compare them with what they could replace! Spend a bit more, get the cab you really want, and then gig it for years and years and years.
We cover your Barefaced loudspeaker system against any defects in construction, parts or performance for three years from the original shipping date, to the original owner. If you are lucky enough to acquire a Barefaced cab secondhand then please contact us to register as an owner. We do not officially transfer the warranty from owner to owner because we cannot be sure whether the previous owner treated their cab in a manner befitting its loveliness but we do guarantee to provide good support in the event that your used Barefaced product develops any problems. The warranty does not cover damage due to any kind of abuse - please note that although our components are very tough they are not indestructible and any attempts to claim despite abuse are unlikely to be successful as it is relatively easy for an experienced technician to determine how a component was damaged.
Please feel free to demand extremely high SPL output from our products without fear of failure but do not waste your time trying to unscientifically find their limits, blown components are expensive to replace.
This warranty is voided by any attempt to modify, improve, or reverse engineer the speaker.
Intellectual property rights
Although we do not claim any of our current models contain features which are patent pending they are unique in many ways when compared to other speaker cabinets within the bass guitar amplification field. Any demonstrable theft of our intellectual property will face litigation.
