BP-800 Compact Bass Amp Head
Small and lightweight just got more powerful with the introduction of Phil Jones Bass’ BP-800 bass amplifier. The BP-800 is a high power, high performance no compromise compact amplifier that delivers more bass for the buck. The BP800 features a Class A pre-amp with the popular PJB 5-Band EQ.

Although it weighs only 5.7 lbs and is 7.5” wide the BP-800 is built with the ruggedness and precision needed to withstand all the rigors of live performance and the road. The appealing blue front panel is a quarter inch thick and CNC machined while the chassis is built from thick aluminum extrusion making it incredibly strong. All control knobs are PJB design solid aluminum billet for a high end look and feel.

The BP-800 will work on any AC voltage from 100- 240 volts AC enabling it to conveniently travel worldwide without having to switch to local AC supply voltages. The Power Output is 400 watts into 8 Ohms, and 800 watts into 4 ohms (maximum load). The dimensions are 7.5” wide x 2.5” high x 12.5 “deep.

PJB CAB 67 – 500 Watt Stackable Cabinet
The Cab 67 is a no-holds-barred 500 Watt powerhouse enclosure that will deliver the bottom end and add life to any live playing situation. It is a slugger as a stand-alone cabinet that turns massive when stacking two together.

The Cab 67 has six proprietary PJB seven inch drivers along with a three inch tweeter that together deliver a full dynamic range, perfect for any working or jamming bassist. It is crafted with robust internal bracing resulting in an extremely solid and roadworthy cabinet with built-in casters that make transporting a breeze. The bottom end is rich and punchy but never “boomy” and has a flat frequency response so any bass will sound accurately true.

Built in wheel wells and a recessed handle make the Cab 67 a snap to stack on top of one another. While it is a stellar performer with any bass amplifier the PJB BP-800 head is the perfect sonic complement to this cabinet. The potential shock wave created by two Cab 67’s and a BP-800 stacked together will exhilarate any playing situation yet, amazingly, stands only 54 inches tall!
