One word: Unreal. Got my Phil Jones 6-pak last night. It's unreal in a few ways. the first thing I noticed is this sonofagun is HEAVY. It's the same weight as both my aggies put together. Thank heaven for the luggage handle - just need to put some stair treads on the back to really make it as portable as it looks. =0) Then I plugged it in. Flipped the power switch and was blinded by the big blue power light =0) I tried all my basses with it, and all I can say is, the impressive amount of power and volume for ~200W struck me first. Next up was the compressor, barely noticeable at either extreme and perfect for limiting your peaks. And of course, the extensive EQ section. Here's where I go "duhhhh" - I could fiddle all day and not know what sounds great or what sounds awful, I could use a knowledgeable friend to help me dial in certain tones. I've always been a bass/mid/treb guy, so the parametric is where I started first - but the variable Q of each section threw me off a bit - I boosted the mids to get an idea of the knob range where you can hear it best, and the mid-Q knob sounded like an awesome wah pedal as I moved it around. The Graphic came next - I set it up all wavy-like, the way I usually set up a graphic for guitar (because I've only had graphic EQ 'sperience with guitar) - with humps in the areas "between" lo and mid, and mid and high, and everything else at zero or so. Nice amouunt of flexibility and the sheer amount of boost you can have is incredible, although I dont know if it made my sound better or worse =0) (since I believe the EQ sections are each footswitchable, I may identify alternate go-to tones and just leave them set for switching in and out like effects.) Anyways, the real prize is no-EQ. I dont know if any other review says this, but the amp sounds "throaty". Especially on my Modulus, there was this je-ne-sais-quoi that just plain sounded cool. Now, I liked my GS112 tone a bunch, but this was just wild. Those little drivers push out the harmonic content. My Warwick sounded exactly as it always has, which is a good thing because it's this "signature" sound and you'd know if it were badly colored. And the Fodera - surprisingly not pushing as hot as the Modulus, I could barely MAKE the limiter light come on even when slapping. =0) But again, sounded awesome. Heh, I also noticed I need to pull the bass side of the pup a tad closer to the E on the Fodera. I generally feel like boosting my bass knob on all basses these days, just from a "more power, grunt grunt" standpoint, and the 6Pak shot it right back at me with all the low end I was afraid it couldn't do. Don't know why I was afraid, exactly, but now I know that the dropoff at about 50Hz and below, that you see on the response chart on the PJB site, doesn't translate to your ear at all. Between EQ on your bass, and the two separate EQ sections on the amp, you could conceivably shake your house down. (well, I'll concede I have a small house) - I may even need a gramma pad test to see just how much of the rumble is from coupling with my hardwood floor. But at this point, I don't care, I'm just drinkin' it in. Yaaay! Five-inch speakers to rule them all, and in the lowend bind them.
