Gen 3 covers & T-shirts

(This is the old Barefaced Bass website, which has not been updated since 2018)


Generation 3 covers

We now have custom covers for all our models, which are usually in stock. They are handmade in the UK with heavy duty black nylon fabric, thick foam padding, Barefaced logo and a placeholder strap on the taller covers (cabs with wheels only).

Free shipping only if you order at the same time as your cab - otherwise £15 for UK customers, £25 for European customers and £50 for other International customers (thick padding means they're big expensive packages to ship).

Please let us know if you'd like one of these when ordering so we can ensure we have one available when your cab is ready to ship. Highly recommended for overseas orders to give the cab another layer of protection when being shipped!



Apparel and Leads

If you would like a lead (speakon-speakon or speakon-1/4") or a Barefaced T-shirt, hoodie or beanie with your cab, simply let us know when ordering. Any colour, as long as it's black.

It looks like this (send in your own pic for your big break in the world of catalogue modelling!)

Sizes: Small, Medium, Large, XL, 2XL, 3XL. See prices below.

Generation 1 and 2 spares/upgrades

Feet don't fail me now...

We've run out of stock of our old small feet, so if you've lost any of the small feet from your original Midget, Compact or Big Baby then you can purchase some replacements from one of the following sites:

First AV
Sound & Light
Show Consumables
EW Web
Parts Express (USA)

(25mm x 10mm rubber foot with steel washer - Penn Elcom F1693)

The correct length screw is 1/2" (12.5mm). Use the largest gauge that fits through the hole in the foot.


If you've lost either of the large feet from your Big One, Vintage, Super Twelve, Super Fifteen, Big Twin, Dubster or '69er then you can purchase replacements from one of the following sites:

Flightcase Hardware
All Metal Parts
Blue Aran
Lautsprecher shop

(38mm x 25mm rubber foot with steel washer - Adam Hall 4911)

The correct length screw is 1" (25mm). Use the largest gauge that fits through the hole in the foot.

If you've stripped out the original screw hole then pack it with matchsticks/cocktail sticks/kebab skewers, plus a dab of woodglue and leave it to harden before fitting the new foot. Email us if you need help or if you find a better supplier for your part of the world and we'll link them from here.


Touch-up kits

If the textured coating on your Barefaced cab has suffered a few chips and scratches over the years it's easy to make it look (almost) as good as new! Price = £5 (including international P&P)

Strap handle upgrade kits


If your strap handles are looking tired or worn then you can purchase an upgrade kit directly from us (prices include international P&P):

Link to our new webshop

Upgrade kit contents (per handle):

1. Strap assembly (one metal strap, one rubber sleeve, two metal ends)
2. Two metal fittings
3. Two chromed covers (for metal fittings)
4. Two M5 bolts
5. Four nylon washers

NB: The metal strap must be reused from your old handle because the bolt-bolt distances are different on the new handle.

Fitting instructions

(please read these thoroughly and make sure that you are happy doing this - we will not be held liable if you manage to damage your cab or injure anyone!)

Unscrew the existing handle bolts, pushing as lightly as possible on the screwdriver. If you push even remotely hard the t-nut on the inside will pop out and you'll have to take the grill off and a woofer out to get it back in. If your cab is a Midget T and you lose a t-nut you will have to disassemble and rebuild the cab - be warned, this is at your own risk!

How to Screw

Slide the metal strap out of the old handle - you'll be using that with the new handle.

Pull the metals ends off the new handle and slide the rubber sleeve off the metal strap. Cut the rubber sleeve down by between 20mm and 40mm - check how the new handle fits relative to the original bolt holes to make sure you cut the rubber down by the right amount. MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE!

Slide the cut-down rubber sleeve over the OLD metal strap. Push the metal ends as far as possible onto the strap/rubber. Put one bolt through the outside hole of the steel fitting, one bolt through the inside hole. Place the bolt/fittings over/through the strap assembly and choose which way around fits/looks best on the cab. Put two nylon washers (included with the kit) onto each bolt (so they end up in between the strap and the outside surface of the cab).

Using your fingers, get each bolt to engage with the t-nut in the cab. Gently spin the bolt up so that the t-nut cannot fall out. Then tighten the bolt all the way up - moderate force on a medium sized screwdriver is enough, you don't want to bend/distort the metal ends. Make sure that the ends are straight, not wonky!

Check all the bolts are suitably torqued up and that the handles feel safe and secure. We will not be held liable if you fail to install the new handles correctly and damage your cab or yourself (or anyone else!) Pop the chromed covers over the handle ends, they'll click into position - once they're on they're very difficult to remove without damaging them, so make sure everything is right before doing so.

Enjoy your new handles - they look good and they're so tough they should last decades!


Metal corner replacement / upgrade kit

If you have an original plastic cornered cab (the earliest Compacts and Big Ones), a metal cornered cab with two sided corners all around and/or with less flush screws, or have lost any corners, we have a full kit of corners and fixings available. £12 per kit inc worldwide P&P.

Link to our new webshop

Corner kit contents:

1. Four 2-sided corners
2. Four 3 sided-corners
3. Twenty medium screws
4. Four short screws

Fitting instructions:

Remove all your existing corners.

With plastic cornered cabs you will need to sand the plywood corners of the box to a large radius - the the metal corners as a template for this. You will also need to touch up the old screw holes with black paint. This requires a degree of craftmanship!

With metal cornered cabs the new corners should fit exactly where the old corners were and share the same screw holes. If the old screw hole threads have stripped then fill them as advised above in the 'foot replacement/ section.

The short screws must be used where the corners are adjacent to a port - so the lower front corners on the Compact, Midget, Big Baby, Vintage and Big One and the front right corners on the Super Twelve, Super Fifteen, Dubster and Big Twin. Where the enclosure is reinforced on the bottom (or top on later Big Twins) you can use a medium screw by the port but make sure you don't get confused and put a hole through the port panel!

Make sure that the corner is correctly aligned before screwing it on. Don't rush it, get it right!
