Limited custom enclosure design/construction available.
Everything nowadays has become smaller, lighter, and better - and loudspeaker technology hasn't been left behind (despite evidence to the contrary sitting on the music store floor).... Be prepared to completely rethink your perceptions and expectations in terms of the size and weight of onstage bass gear, and how live bass can and should sound like..
If you are reading this, we're sure you are serious about bringing your onstage gear and your sound into the 21st century. Rest assured you are in the right place! If you are not familiar with the fEARful concept, let us introduce you..
Walk into any big-time music store, and you may soon come to realize there hasn't been any real advancement in bass cab design in over 40 years. The truth is, many of these classic cabs we have come to know are in reality some of the most poorly engineered cabs commercially produced. There really hasn't been any urgency for the big name brands to offer more up-to-date alternatives, either.. Guys are used to the "classics," and as long as they can be built cheaply and sold at a certain price point, who's going to notice the sonic issues??
Thing is, technology's now available to enable us do a whole lot better for working bassists... It wasn't that long ago greenboy did a sizeable amount of research, assembled prototypes, then came on the talkbass forums introducing a series of build-it-yourself projects dubbed fEARful. Sure there were/are doubters and skeptics, but lo and behold, guys actually started building these cabs. If they were built with the components specified and assembled correctly, the builder was rewarded with a smaller, lighter, and more modular loudspeaker system which redefined loud, low, and clear to a place never reached before with "classic" designs.. All with superior midrange/treble dispersion..
As time went on and the "fEARful phenomenon" started to grow, there was a growing demand for some sort of commercial production. greenboy prohibited commercial use of his plans, and there has been/still are those who try to skirt the policy by building and selling what's known in these circles as "nEARfuls".. To make a long story short, greenboy decided to rightfully profit from his work, and authorized a small group of entrepreneurs to build his designs to his exact specs. Fortunately we are one of the few and the proud!!
There's a fEARful for nearly every stage application!
As you can see, fEARful isn't the only thing we can deliver... greenboy has expanded the product line with some amazing new designs. All were designed with performance, size and weight in mind. Upright bass players really need to check out the Crazy8/88's, and they can handle a LOT more than that.. The classic 15's got a modern upgrade with Dually/Bassic, and the new subs are the new standard in LF response and small footprint. The FEARLESS line has just begun to roll out.. If maximum performance, AND minimum size and weight is #1 priority, you will want to check out these designs. Bassic 12 gives the upright player another weapon in the arsenal.. These new offerings are Gigmaster exclusives, as there are no DIY plans available.. 12" and 15" fEARful enclosures can be purchased at any stage of construction from a bare box up. If you really need that special one-off, we also have full computer-aided design capabilities on a limited basis, see the custom tab for details..
