PJB Phil Jones Bass Suitcase Compact

Newest powerful and flexible small combo, 300W, 4x5", 2-ch, Limiter
(Extension cabinet: C4)

Introducing the Suitcase Compact.This model is based on the superlative and uncompromised performance of the original PJB Suitcase. It is more powerful but 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", this EQ sounds 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 high-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 watt.

The future of amps is trending to; "smaller and better" but with the Suitcase Compact bass combo, the future is here now!

    Outstanding sound, tone, quality and price. A brilliant bass combo which has all the flexibility to extend to a second cab and or use di. Sounds great with my fretless and fretted basses and having the inputs is a great feature. All the bass amp and tone I'll ever need.

    Very disappointed, I have the Phil Jones Double Four 70 W combo for home use which is excellent and thought the BG-400 might be the answer for gigs but it is just not man enough. I tried it on it's own and then with an added quality 8 ohm cab. Looks like I'm going to have to carrying on with the heavy Ampeg gear. I've tried lots of the lighter weight stuff (Aguilar, Mark, Barefaced. Phil Jones) but none of them satisfy me with depth or power.
