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.

      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.

      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!

      Phil Jones Bass Cub - BG100 in great condition, ie, pretty well as new. Complete with case, strap (unused), lead, bag, documentation etc.
      Got this earlier in the year at a bass bash but have just used it for practice since. I have now got a bose battery PA which I am using for the same thing so this is sitting not being used.
      Its a great thing for playing at home or in quieter or acoustic gigs, or round a friends house, but it won't keep up with an enthusiastic drummer obviously. Its 100 watts.
      Would rather not post it because I am terribly lazy, but if needs must I will do! Happy to drive it anywhere 50 miles of yeovil, or to meet somewhere.

      Full Frontal - note the little spring loaded leg at the front.

      Stripping down to show off a fine pair of 5 inchers..

      Taunting from within the bag

      A nice shot of the rear end - note the white patches are glare rather than dirt or dust.

      Full on control panel. 2 types of input for Mic / Bass, inc a combined XLR / Jack on the guitar side and a switch for lower level.
      Level / Bass / mid / treble for both channels, a limiter with level, an ipod style input (lead included), headphone and master volume.

      NOW SOLD. Open to offers! So here is my Phil Jones rig - I lusted after something like this for years, only to eventually find that it’s waaaay more than I can actually use. If you know bass amplification, you’ll know about PJ ... it’s all true, this rig is amazing with potential for 1200 watts of pure, transparent power and it’s easy to transport - well, easier than an SVT 8x10 anyways. Condition is great, each cab comes with a cover. Sorry, really don’t want to split them up. Based in Bournemouth, happy to travel a reasonable distance to hand over.
