Phil Jones Amplification
Phil Jones has become a top choice for Bassists and other musicians who need ultra-portable, high-end performance.
Phil Jones Double 4
The DOUBLE FOUR is a single channel bass amplifier that has an auxiliary input for ipad/ipod, mp3 or drum machine. It features 3 band EQ that is perfectly tailored for bass guitar, headphone out jack and a line out for recording. It is ideal for all kinds of basses and can handle the open B string on a 5 string bass with ease. The cabinet may be as small as a shoe box but it is built to the same standards of all PJB cabinets, heavily braced internally and damped with acoustic damping materials to prevent cabinet coloration that can kill the true sound of your instrument. What you hear from the DOUBLE FOUR is the closest you can get to how your instrument actually sounds. The DOUBLE FOUR may just be a practice amp but it does not mean that it has to sound like a practice amp. The sound is huge for its size and you may find it hard to believe that all the sound from your bass is just coming out of such a tiny jewel box. 70 Watts. 8.8 Pounds.
Phil Jones Bass CUB
Sometimes all you need is an amp that can deliver true bass tones but without the hassle of getting out a big rig amplifier. The Bass Cub is 100 watts of pure tone in a “shoebox” size package and so light, it can be lifted even with a finger! It can sit on the floor or on top of a desk. Two independent channels can accept two instruments or one microphone. It also has a stereo input for Drum machine or I-pod/MP3 player. Practicing can be done with the 2 internal speakers or headphones. The BASS CUB comes with a padded carrying bag. With these features and great sound there is no longer an excuse you can not practice. 100 Watts. 13.2 Pounds.
Phil Jones Session 77
By using all digital circuitry, the amp will work on any AC voltage from 100 to 260 Volts without a voltage selector. It features a single channel pre amp with a 3-band EQ. It also has a separate auxiliary input for backing tracks. The combination of the two proprietary 7 inch speakers and a 2 inch tweeter gives full range reproduction of all basses with stellar clarity. The Session 77 is the result of our effort to build a budget conscious amp without giving up our quest for quality. Focusing on the most basic needs of most bass players, we achieved the goal of having the best sounding, most reliable amp at an unbeatable price. 100 Watts. 28 Pounds.
Phil Jones Briefcase
If you believe that great things can come in small packages, then you need to check out the new portable bass amplifier by Phil Jones Bass. It’s a mighty little bass amp packed into a tiny, twin speaker enclosure about the size of… well… a briefcase. With the option to operate on AC power or rechargeable battery, the PJPS BRIEFCASE takes bass amp portability to a new level. The PJPS BRIEFCASE features an ultra-low noise preamp with a 5-band EQ and optical limiter – combined with a power amplifier that can operate at 100 watts RMS into 4 Ohms. Two custom designed 5-inch PJPS speakers loaded in the rear-vented enclosure deliver hi-fi clarity and punch that needs to be heard to be believed. The BRIEFCASE combo is an ideal unit for practice, the studio or small venues. 100 Watts. 28 pounds.
Phil Jones Bass Briefcase Ultimate
We looked to see if there was any way that we could add to the Briefcase already stellar performance. This is the Briefcase on steroids called the Ultimate! First we designed a more powerful amplifier from 100 to 200 watts. In order for the two 5 inch speakers to handle this we had to totally redesign a completely new 5 inch driver, no small feat considering that we have already been pushing the envelope in bass transducers. The new speaker not only has a larger and more efficient motor ( it is 2dB louder!), it also has better high and low frequency performance too. We changed out the vent and replaced it with the RALFR technology we put into the BG75. The result is richer, deeper more tuneful and organic bass. We kept the battery function here . This amp has all the bells and whistles of the original Briefcase Thanks to the super efficient class D power the battery has the same duration of running time. The amp will put out 150 watts on its own internal 8 ohm speaker and can provide 200 watts output with an external 8 ohm speaker. 150 Watts. 31 Pounds.
Phil Jones Bass Super Flightcase
Like its smaller brother, the BG-150. This amp has amazing power and performance to weight ratio. Not only great acoustic output to play loud but the bass is incredibly rich and deep yet has authority and control never heard before in amp this size. Sparkling high frequencies and transparent mid-range emanate all over the stage as well as to the audience allowing the player to voice his sound to every one with clarity and precision of a world class recording studio recording. 250 Watts. 33 Pounds.
Phil Jones Bass Flightcase
What would be the perfect bass amp? Well it would have to sound great – but in a practical sense that usually went along with the words big and heavy. For the last 3 years, PJPS has researched what would be the “perfect amp” for the working musician. First, utilizing what we know about powerful and small drive units, we developed a revolutionary speaker unit. The NEO-POWER speaker was born. Lightweight and extremely powerful thanks to the advanced neodymium magnet motor structure, exclusively a proprietary PJPS transducer! Then we developed a loudspeaker enclosure so advanced that it has a patent applied for. Whether sitting, standing, close or far; the sound is the same. From the deepest bass tones to the subtlest of harmonics: you hear it all! Punchy deep and crisp bass that is never muddy. All from an enclosure barley occupying a space more than 1 cubic foot! Amplifiers can have a dramatic effect on how speakers sound so we developed a truly transparent yet powerful, all digital amplifier, which embraces a digital switching power supply that operates on any AC voltage worldwide and a full bandwidth Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), high efficiency output stage. The result is an amplifier so efficient, it does not even require a weighty heat-sink that is often required in high power solid state amps. In fact we did all that is physically possible with state of the art technology in bringing a revolutionary bass amp. We call it the FLIGHTCASE because if had wings, it would probably fly. It has just that much power to weight ratio, not to mention studio quality performance. 24 Pounds
Phil Jones Bass Suitcase Compact
This model is based on the nu-compromised performance of the original PJB Suitcase. It is more powerful by physically smaller; in fact the same size as our Compact 4 enclosure. It has an incredible punch sound cutting through air as “a knife through butter” but with a solid and powerful low end response normally associated with a much larger combo. It features a two-channel pre-amp with our unique 3 band EQ. Simple to find “your sound”, the EQ sound has amazing control and transparency that allows you to unmistakably hear the true characters of your own playing and instrument. In the heart of this amp lies a formidable ultra-energy power supply. It feeds an efficient class D power amplifier which utilizes almost 95% of this energy to drive the four internal PJB Piranha speakers. The Suitcase Compact puts out a healthy 300 watts RMS onto its own speakers. Adding a Compact 4 cabinet it becomes 500 watts, and adding a Compact 8 it becomes 575 watts. The future of amps is trending to “smaller and better” but with the Suitcse Compact bass combo, the future is here now! 300 Watts. 40 Pounds.
Phil Jones Bass Roadcase
The ROADCASE has the convenience of a combo but with output power you get from separate components. It has two channels: Channel one is dedicated for acoustic bass and Channel Two for electric. Its massive 750W RMS power amplifier has the headroom and tone to work on just about any stage. The 12 “Neo Power” speakers have the finesse to cope with all styles of playing with the weight and authority from a much larger cabinet. Its tiny foot print allows you more space on cramped stages, without sacrificing tone or volume. At the end of the gig, you will appreciate the ease of transporting it, owing to its incredible power to weight ratio and ergonomically designed handling. 750 Watts. 84 Pounds.

You can link as many PB-100 cabs as you want with the line in/link out facility. It has its own volume control, so you can balance a sound to suit you exactly.
Phil Jones Bass Ear Box
You bass cabinet is heavily affected by the environment it is in and where you are standing in relation to it. What you hear is the sound of your speakers mixed in with the reflected sounds from walls, ceilings and floors. Basically your speaker has a different sound on and off axis and the further you are away from it the more sound energy that is reflected is blended into the sound. If the room acoustics are not ideal you know the sound you get is very uneven in response and muddy. EQ is NOT the answer! Standing in front of your bass rig up close gives you the most clarity but at the expense of your audience. You body will block the mid range and high soaking them up like a sponge. So your audience will hear a far more degraded sound than you. The Ear Box is in its own category. It is not a stage monitor or an earphone; it is somewhere in between. he speakers in the Ear-Box are ultra-light but very powerful neodymium speakers. The total weight is 2.4 pounds. This allows it to be screw-mounted on a vertical (not boom type) microphone stand. It is positioned at ear level on the opposite side of where you amp is. The distance should be about 3 feet from you. What may sound unusual is that the Ear Box has virtually no load on an amplifier. It is very high impedance: almost 1000 ohms at bass frequencies, tapering down to 24 ohms, at the very highest frequencies. It actually stabilizes the speaker load on you amplifier by acting as a ZOBEL network. The Ear Box high impedance allows it to be connected to just about any bass amplifier, right up to 1000 watt RMS output!

The PJB BigHead functions first as a bass headphone amplifier with 2 band EQ ( +/- 18db @ 60 Hz and +/- 18dB @ 5KHz) set for optimization of all kinds of bass instruments. Unlike consumer electronic MP3 players and smart phones that have very small power output of around 20 milli-watt to drive headphones, the BigHead has more than 10 times the power. A more important function of the BigHead is being a recording tool both in digital and analog. As an Analog Digital Converter, it has the finest BURR BROWN digital components. The USB out is 48KHz 16Bit digital conversion. In other words, recording your bass onto Pro Tools will give you exactly what you wish for and absolutely nothing else. Maybe you need an analog pre amp. The Big Head will provide up to 12dB of gain and better than 96dB signal to noise ratio. It has an internal lithium-ion rechargeable battery that is fed by its USB jack, so any computer or appropriate cell phone charger can charge it for up to 8 hours of use.
Phil Jones Bass Headphones
When it comes to headphones, not all are suitable for bass instruments. Many may sound good for music but plug them into the headphone jack of a bass amp and you will soon find their limitations. PJB H-850 headphones are a result of years of auditioning headphones for this purpose and analyzing the mechanisms of what works for the reproduction of music and bass. Utilizing high power 40mm neodymium magnets and closed back acoustic loading, we were able to achieve a superb sound reproduction for both music and bass instruments. These headphones are lightweight and therefore can be worn for hours with comfort. They have superb acoustic isolation from external noise and headphone bleed through for recording application. After you try the H-850 you will soon realize these will be your favorite headphones.
Phil Jones Bass 4 Foot Speaker Cable
It’s not uncommon for today’s bass player to use amplifier power up to 1000 watts and beyond. These high-power amps develop high currents feeding low impedance speakers sometimes peaking to 30 amps or more. Speakers at this power level need great control by the amp’s damping ability. That’s the ratio of amp impedance to speaker impedance. Kind of like putting on the speaker’s brakes so your speakers stop and start on a dime – giving your bass sound tighter punch and better dynamics. Using cables with the slightest of loss can be disastrous on low-ohm loads. Even a fraction of an ohm in cable resistance can result in wasting some of those precious watts. PJPS speaker cables use four conductors instead of two found in normal speaker cables and with the high-purity copper multi-strand conductors (9 AWG equivalent), resistance is ultra-low so your speakers get virtually 100% of the power delivered by your amp. Our plugs are manufactured by us because nobody builds them as strong as we do. So you are assured of the utmost dependability night after night, never having to worry about your cables. Speakon connectors.
