BB22 chassis does NOT fit a Rockette:30 or Sessionette:75 cabinet - sorry


12/02/2015 Cornford 15W Hurricane Comparison

Using a Gibson Les Paul Special, we compared BluesBaby with a Cornford Hurricane, fitted with a G12 Greenback 25W 8 Ohms speaker

We hooked up the BluesBaby chassis to the Hurricane's speaker cabinet

Result... there was little appreciable difference, except that the BluesBaby had a much wider tone range and is louder!



We are happy to supply retailers, cabinet makers & OEMs with BB to install into your own locally made cabinets

Expert assistance with your project will be provided
