Product Description

The Suitcase Compact BG-400 from Phil Jones Bass is based on the un-compromised performance of the original PJB ‘Suitcase’ combo. It is more powerful but physically smaller, in fact the same size as our Compact 4 cabinet.

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 3 band EQ. Simple to find ‘your sound’, this EQ has amazing control and transparency that allows you to unmistakably hear the true characters of your own playing and instrument.

Matching extension cabinet: Compact 4 (as shown in photo) for the increased power of the Suticase Compact to 500 watts.

So far, I’m floored!

What is your opinion of this product?
I’m a long time weekend warrior (30+ years) and consider myself a fickle player bouncing from bass to bass and amps/cabs to amp/cabs. Started with Peavey back in the 80s, had Ampeg, Hartke, Markbass, GK and back to Ampeg, with a few others along the way (Bugera, TC, Ashdown...you get it) each time I get new gear I think “This is it baby, my sound!” Then eventually get bored and try new stuff. From what I’ve read, this isn’t uncommon with all of us. Enter AMS and the 12 month thing! Crud. I’m in trouble. Anyhow, I got myself (out of curiosity and reviews) the PJB 4x5 cab which blew me away using my GK MB Fusion 500. Added a GK 112 and I was absolutely amazed with the clarity and depth coming from this cute little box, so I bit the bullet and picked up this combo. Immediately out of the box, paired it with the 4x5 cab and loved everything about it. It’s sturdy, packs a punch, dual channels will be perfect for upright and electric switching ease, I just can’t wait to field test these.

This is a great amp!
What is your opinion of this product?
Playing in bands for 25+ years. Currently in a trio playing covers and doubling on upright and electric. I was gigging with two PJB Briefcases daisy-chained together; but changing EQs and cords a couple of times each set was getting to be a drag. This amp solved all my problems; I'm carrying one less amp, there is EQ with plenty of travel, gain, and a mute switch on each channel, and I don't have to swap cords. Actually, this may be the only 2-channel bass amp on the market that is a true dual-channel amp. It sounds great on both electric (80's P-bass) and upright (60s Kay w/ Underwood pickup). The input impedance does not seem to be as high as the Briefcase; I had to go back to using a preamp on the upright. I made a "Y" 1/4" speaker cable and actually tried it with the two Briefcases set up as a 4x5 bottom cabinet. This was fantastic! I'm getting the extension cab as soon as I pay off the Suitcase. :-)

Compact and Powerful
What is your opinion of this product?
I've played through an Ampeg combo and a Veryon Bugera head with an Eden 4 x 10 cabinet and still not gotten the punch and power I've received from the BG-400. Easy to carry, quick to setup and ready to deliver the low end, mids and highs with awesome clarity.

All I can say is wow!
What is your opinion of this product?
Tight, punchy sound and last night it covered an entire banquet hall and didn't need the pa. If I would have known that this thing was this good, I would have purchased it years ago. I'm selling my old stack completely, why do I need it?

Best sound ever!!
What is your opinion of this product?
This is the sound. Sounds like your listening to your bass try a studio monitor. It is tight and focused. Easy amp to carry around and very loud. I plan to get the 8x5 extension cab so I will be covered for any situation. I've owned everything from fender bassmans to euphoric audio and this has the hi fi euphoric audio sound but still has a warmth to it. The small speakers are way better than large ones. Reminds me of the tight focused sound my SWR Silverado cab with 4x8 configuration but way smaller.

Good sounding combo!
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm a Phil Jones fan so I'm already a bit biased, but I like this amp. It's a bit on the heavy side because it doesn't contain his Neo-power drivers. Instead it uses his regular drivers which I think sound better anyway so the extra weight is not a problem. It has plenty of features and plenty of power. I'm using it mostly for jazz gigs and it has no problem holding it's own, even on louder gigs. The sound is great and the quality is top notch.
