How can so much volume, so much midrange punch, so much fat bottom and such sweet venue-filling treble come from a cab that's so easy to move?

The purity of two 12XN drivers in a highly optimised enclosure, no tweeters, no crossover - just added simplicity. Replaces cabs twice its size and many times its weight. Goes loud with very little power, goes VERY LOUD with loads. As always with Barefaced, outstanding dispersion because that matters

Hi Alex,

Today, ahead of schedule, I am in receipt of a great deal of cardboard, blue-green L-shaped foam, and “fragile” tape. Inside of all this was something that might weigh less than the packing materials: an absolutely gorgeous Super Twin T. Wow! It’s so easy to carry, and so spectacularly finished.
And then there’s the sound. I’ve only explored it for about an hour so far and it’s quite extraordinary. It is so sensitive to what I do with my hands and how I adjust the amp gain and EQ. I’ve never experienced a cab quite like this, and I think I’m probably hooked. The range of what it can put out — not only in terms of volume but also in timbre — is very revealing and intriguing. Suddenly, I noticed what sorts of strings I had on my basses and which ones I want to change. My old Trace Elliot 2x10, even with its replacement rare-earth-magnet speakers, can’t do this.
This is going to take a little exploration and getting used to. I was a little worried that this cab would only feel like a modern rock machine; that it wouldn’t let me dial things back and get a more retro/vintage sound from a P bass, or that it would invariably sound too scooped in the mids. But I don’t think any of those things are true. The tone and driving force seem to come down to what I feed it and where the tweeter control is set. BTW, I’m impressed that incremental adjustments to the tweeter control actually make a difference. I’ve only ever hand on/off or high/low switches in the past.
In short, there is going to be a whole lot to explore with this cab. It presents itself as very versatile. I’m grateful!
Hopefully, one of these days I’ll come to the UK and maybe we can go for a bike ride together. :)
Cheers,
Tom

Hi Tom,
Glad you're so impressed - our 12XN speakers are pretty incredible!

I am a happy Super Twin owner since 2021. After playing bass for over 55 years, this little monster cabinet is just...  well, super. And super light! Great for a weekend and summer warrior like me.

I've got a Super Twin that I bought from you five or six years ago, best cab I've ever had. I want to add another 12 to it and have the chance of a Midget at a very good price, laid on it's side the Super twin would stack almost perfectly on it, is this going to work, as in will the drivers work well together? I'm assuming they're identical drivers. My amp is a Mesa D800. Thanks
Steve

Hi Steve,
Do you mean a Midget or a Super Midget? If the latter, then yes they're 12XN drivers, same as the Super Twin. If the former, then that's a 3012HO with quite a different sound (more mids, less bottom, less top, and less clean and smooth sounding), and less power handling.
We do make a really nice little 1x12XN cab that's made for stacking on the Super Twin, called the Super 3rd:
Glad the ST is performing well!

Just wanted to let you know the Super Twin arrived in good shape yesterday. I haven’t had a chance to play out with it at volume yet but man does that thing ever sound good here in my studio. My Fender Neo 410 could never quite get the tone of my GK head. This thing sounds incredible with it.

Thanks!

Hi this is me with my ST at Winchcombe festival summer 2023 playing with my 10 piece reggae/hip-hop band Dub Catalyst. The ST is perfect for dub reggae, even on a big stage like this and projects the sound really well.
