    The PJB Bass Cub II (Model BG-110) is the newly released, updated version of the popular Phil Jones Bass Cub that will be delivering in February 2020. The Bass Cub II is 110 watts of pure tone in a “shoebox” size package. It is so light, that it can be lifted with one finger!

    Phil Jones Bass has developed a new amplifier design which has far greater transient attack from improved loudspeaker cone acceleration, greater dynamic range, and lower harmonic distortion. An upgraded power supply provides a rock-solid stable voltage and current to feed the amplifier.

    In addition, PJB researched into a better loudspeaker, specially engineered for the BASS CUB 2 that gives a wider and smoother frequency response using our unique “Chrome-Dome” technology. It will provide increased headroom and speed to capture every nuance of bass playing, from gentle fingerstyle to hardcore slapping.

    The BG-110 is available in black and red tolex.Two independent channels can accept two instruments or one microphone. It also has a stereo input for a Drum machine or iPod/MP3 player. Play along practicing can be accomplished through the two internal speakers or headphone jack.

    The Bass Cub II’s dimensions are 12”W x 11”D x 7.8”H and it weighs 15.5 lbs. It produces 110 Watts Class D amplification with digital switch-mode power supply. A soft cover is included.

    Established in 2002, PJB and AIRPULSE Guitar Amps are divisions of Phil Jones American Acoustic Development. PJB is dedicated to using the latest technology in the design of compact bass amps and loudspeakers that achieve highest in fidelity and volume. Phil Jones owns several patents for loudspeaker technology.

    It's not mentioned in the ad or shown in these pictures but this amp also has a kick back stand, a DI, and tuner and line out.

    Yep! I'll take two, please. :woot::bassist:

    $649 is a little steep when you consider I already own the BG-75 Double Four that weighs 8.8lbs. and provides 70 watts of power.

  9. It sounds like a PITA, frankly! :laugh:

    I've tried the "lots of very small drivers" PJB thing for a while. It turned out not having anywhere near the volume or low-end extension I needed, despite all the sales-talk (emphasis on "I" - might be great for others) AND it was heavier than many other options. It's a fine product, but very "niche". And pricy.

    Anyone have thoughts on this unit for amplified upright bass application? Pre-amp required for piezos?
     
  19. No, just plug right in. PJB preamps do great with upright
