    20180612_223144.jpg Check out this stack. I'll sell these separately, but they are really cool together. You can choose 2, 4, or 6 speakers, depending on the gig.

    There is a lot of information on these cabs here on Talkbass, so I won't try to write it all here. The bottom line is that these are really good looking cabs that have a tone that many people like and can get really loud for their size. The Cub has two inputs, including one for a mic. You can link the PB-100's to the Bass Cub, or another preamp. Each of the boxes has two 5" drivers and a 100 watt amp on board.

    Check out the attached photo for a look at the controls on the Cub.

    These cabs have the highest WAF (wife approval factor) and LRAF (living room acceptability factor) of any equipment I've owned. The red color is really nice, the grill cloth looks great, and they measure only 12″x 11″x 8″.

    In every thread regarding the Bass Cub or PB-100, the question is asked regarding how loud they can get. Here is my recommendation regarding volume. One Cub will keep up with an acoustic guitar or two or three. Two Cubs could handle coffee shop type gig situations with a well-disciplined drummer. Three Cubs can handle large arena shows and huge outdoor gigs. Maybe not that last one, but 3 of them together can get pretty loud.

    The Ampeg amp in the photo is a 1967 SB-12, to give you an idea of how small they are. Also, check out the size compared to a Jazz Bass.

    Prices
    Bass Cub - $400 including shipping
    PB-100 - $325 each, or $600 for the pair, including shipping

    PM or post any questions. I'm not really looking for trades right now, but you can PM me if you have trade ideas. I think I have these priced right, so let's call it firm for now.

  2. Could you stack those vertically, or does the strap handle get in the way of that?

    They will stack vertically, but I don’t think you’d want to do it on a gig without figuring out a way to make the skinny stack stable.

    Do you have the gig bags or padded slip covers for the PB-100?

    Good deal. Sorry I missed them. A quick question for you - can the PB100 be used without the power? IE just as an auxiliary speaker?
    thanks,
    Rob

    No, only using the built in power amp.
