Waiting for the courier. Yesterday he must've pissed off home early as he recorded 'no access' on my parcel's tracking despite there being enough access to park the bloody Titanic.

Edit. It's here. Build quality seems good. Protective corners and corner fasteners look a bit cheap. Guess they're a small company and the minor cosmetic things will improve with scale.

Pics coming...

Had some time with it this afternoon. Did a lot of a/b with my Zilla oversize (Super Fat Boy) 212 in closed-back configuration (it has a removable panel but I couldn't be arsed). Been thinking about how best to describe the difference. Going from the 212 to the Barefaced 112 is a bit like switching in a Dyna Comp. It sounds more full. The bass is definitely more present. And there's something of a 3D quality to it too which I guess might be the sound from the back coming off the walls. I've been backwards and forwards on clean, dirty, with different guitars. I have to concede that the Zilla, which is a great cab as far as I'm concerned, just doesn't sound as good.

Speaker differences are that there's a V30 in the Barefaced, and a Celestion A-Type and Creamback 75 in the Zilla.

So, I'll box-up the speakers and put them to one side, and sell the Zilla unloaded.

Turned into a spendy weekend. Oops.

1977 EHX Small Stone from Darth Sabbathi

ALSO

Jen Crybaby Super Wah Pedal

“1970’s model, made In Italy. A real classic and iconic pedal that features the seldom seen Orange Fasel inductor. Seems to be all original on the circuit, switch and DC clip were replaced and it's now running on True Bypass. Missing foot rubber. Great working class option with vintage vibes”

Bit the bullet, missed out on that alnico jensen (cash poor at the time), so as its pay day I've got a Cannabis Rex in the mail for the 5e3. Did quite a bit of research and of the ceramic speakers this gets awesome reviews in a deluxe. Will still keep my eyes peeled for a decent jensen alnico, but hey this can go in an extension cab if that happens!

Also lots of fender tweed oxblood grill cloth. I'm planning on building two cabs with that - one for the 5E3 and the other is maybe a pipe dream at the moment.

And a neutrix locking input trs socket - finally tracked down an intermittent fault on one of my tannoy studio monitors. :) Nothing particularly exciting but, will enable me to use my studio monitors with the helix when the missus is cooking in the kitchen. Else she gets annoyed when I use the big guns and things fall off shelves :D

And the socket from RS arrived, soldered it in this arvo. Completely bought the wrong one - cost me 25 bucks, correct one would have been 5 bucks... does the job but lol

And speaker arrived, lots of asking about was in the box from work peeps. 'CANNABIS' being the dominant word on the cardboard.

'WTF? Do you think I'd have a big box of weed delivered to my home address' was my standard reply ;)
So starting on a 5e3 cab for myself tomorrow. Going to raid the last of the old pine out of my wardrobe (shelves) as it just looks so good on the inside, and its free, and I have a sock drawer so fuck it.
