Phil Jones Bass Introduces the Bass Cub II Combo Amp

Phil Jones Bass BG-110 Combo Amp

Phil Jones Bass has announced the BG-110, aka the Bass Cub II, which builds upon their Bass Cub comb amp. Rated at 110 watts, the combo amp is fitted with two of the company’s five-inch drivers in a “‘shoebox’ size package.” The makeover includes several new aspects.

“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,” they write. “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 amp has two independent channels with two inputs, allowing for using two instruments or a microphone. Other features include a stereo input, a headphone output, a tuner output, and an XLR balanced output with ground lift.

The Phil Jones Bass BG-110 comes in red and black tolex. It will be available this month with a street price of $649.
