Phil Jones 100w cub

Recommended Posts

I tried with bass guitar and double bass.  Its a great little thing but I couldn't use it for anything but the smallest gigs with the most attentive of audiences.  May work better if you can DI into a house PA etc but I couldn't make it work..especially if it was a venue I didn't know well in advance.  My best experience was with an acoustic bass guitar - it was easy to tuck behind the chair so it was invisible, and it actually felt like the bass was making a good acoustic sound (which it can't do!).

I used to rehearse with mine where there was an electronic drum kit and it was just about OK.  However, with an acoustic kit it would've been lost completely.  At a gig, it'd be fine as a monitor if you use the DI out into the PA.  Great sounding practice amp, it really retains the nuances of the instrument's tone, especially piezo equipped basses.

I did lots of gigs with it's smaller cousin the PJB Double 4. It was absolutely fine. That was jazz and solo bass stuff, some ambient ensemble stuff too, that does get a bit loud at times. They're very fussy with placement, ideally they need to be in a corner, or by a wall, so they have something to bounce off.

The smaller PJB combos are OK when other instruments are acoustic, but once electricity enters the equation, they don't quite cut it in my experience. I had the Flightcase (4x5" speakers, 150w). Fine sounding but needed help when playing with electric guitars, drums, etc. Sold it and got a couple of C4 cabs and use them with a lightweight head. Good for up to medium volume and moderate drums but after that, it's back to old school cabs.

      Fantastic little cabs these - we all know that you just can’t beat them for size versus output with incredible fidelity even down to the low B. Hugely portable with a massive sound. I’ve only had it for a short while (gigged once) and loved it so much that I started to plan for a second one when along came a Barefaced cab at a price that I couldn’t refuse. As new condition with PJB cover, paperwork and original box. Will courier at cost, happy to provide local ish delivery.

      Hi all
      Ive recently switched back from guitar to bass as I missed it. It's been some time since I've needed a bass amp and I'm a little lost as to what I should go for. I'm on a fairly low budget as I'm a uni student, so looking second hand predominantly. 
      Here's what I need it for:
      Bedroom playing/recording (looking to record some covers to get back into the swing of things) 
      Potential gigging in small local venues (max 100 people) when I find a band
      Portability! I have lower back problems so looking to keep things easy to transport. 
      Versatility - I play a lot of rock and metal, plus some punk and funk
       
      Options I've identified - 
      Combos - peavey max 200w 1x12, tc electronic bg250 1x15
      Heads - fender rumble 200, ashdown pi bass 240, tc electronic bh250, tc electronic bq500. 
      I'm looking for something to cover all bases for now as I'm just getting back into it. Would love to hear your thoughts!

      Hi everyone
      This is a great monitor for small/mid gigs where you are struggling to hear yourself on a cramped stage.
      It picks up the mid range and top end from your amp and really helps to hear things much more clearly which can be difficult when you are stood right next to your amp/cab.
      This is ideal for mid to low volume gigs. I don't think it would be ideal for loud rock gigs.
      I can include a long speakon cable with it. The cable is inserted under the Ear Box which needs to be screwed/mounted on to a mic stand.
      I have the original packaging and can do shipping and also welcome you to try it out.
      Thanks
      Daz

      Hello everyone,
      I would be grateful for everyone's opinion on this.
      I am a double bass player in school, and I am working on a project to create a method of transport for my school's double bass. I would love to hear from people about the products that they use for transporting their own double bass, and certain things that they love about their own methods or things that they would wish to see on a product in the future. I would also  like to know more information about how people travel around with their bass across all types of public transport. I am based in UK, so I would focus a bit more on the underground tube station and train transport. And also, if you're doing a performance or a gig and require a seat, do you bring an extra stool or is there usually one provided. I will also put up a poll and hopefully you can put in some time to answer a few questions!
      Again, I would be so grateful for any insight on this topic.
      Thank you all very much!
