The PJB Bass Cub Pro (Model BG-120) is the ultimate in the evolution of the popular Bass Cub ultra-compact bass amplification series from Phil Jones Bass.
The power amplifier section has been completely redesigned and has been fortified to deliver as much as 200 watts RMS of pure tone to go. Together with PJB’s Chrome-Dome speaker technology it provides far greater transient attack from improved loudspeaker cone acceleration, greater dynamic range, and lower harmonic distortion. It will provide increased headroom and speed to capture every nuance of bass playing, from gentle fingerstyle to hardcore slapping.
The speaker design and efficiency is the result of PJB’s commitment to driver research at Phil Jones’s laboratory that features a Klippel laser measurement system and a massive anechoic chamber.
As a stand alone combo the Bass Cub Pro will deliver 120 watts RMS into the internal speakers and will increase to 240 watts RMS with the addition of an extension cabinet. The pre amp is a 5 band eq single channel unit with Low Bass, High Bass, Mid-Range, Low Treble and High Treble controls with +/- 18dB of boost or cut on each control.
The cabinet is constructed of solidly braced Baltic birch plywood and is appointed with luxury “tolex” covering with color options of both Burgundy Red and Black. The input has a switchable gain (for active and passive basses), mute switch, and LED clip indicator which will accurately match all bass instruments. The FX Send/Return sockets feature a blend control to achieve desired balance between FX and dry signals. An auxiliary input has a level control for quick mixing of external devises such as a drum machine or iPod/MP3 player, which are audible through the stereo Headphone Socket or speakers.
Two Speakon sockets on the back are devised for an 8 ohm extension speaker such as a PJB C2 or C4, or C8 cabinet and for the PJB EAR-Box, which is a dedicated personal micro-close field monitor for musicians. A voltage selector switch allows the amp to run on any AC power worldwide. PJB’s exclusive heavy chromed steel armored corners adorn the cabinet with stainless steel hex screws. A plush heavy duty stitched leather handle makes carrying the amp a comfortable task. The cabinet can tilt to increase sound projection when placed on the floor and 8 rubber feet allow the cabinet to be placed vertically or horizontally.
All knobs are PJB precision machined aluminum and all ¼ inch sockets have been upgraded to the finest available.
The back panel features 1/4 inch line out post EQ and a balanced XLR with ground lift switch for DI into recording or live mixing console. The socket can be switched pre or post EQ.
