We were among the very first dealers to bring Phil Jones amps to the US market, and we've brought them back on board!

Mark's TakeMy take on this smaller sized combo is that it's an ideal amp for small groups in a coffeehouse-style setting, a stage amp for mid-size groups that don't get too loud, or as an amp for bringing an electric upright bass up to the full acoustic volume of a typical upright. While its main driver is bigger than most of what the PJB amps have, at 7", It's still not going to shake the walls. It will also work well to "augment" the acoustic volume of an upright - so if you just need a bit of support in an acoustic group, this could be a very good option. It could also serve well as a personal monitor for yourself on stage.

Excellent sound, surprisingly deep bass response, and plenty of EQ control to get the tone you're after. Also an excellent amp for EUB or bass guitar/bass uke/etc.

Light and Portable Tone-To-Go with Bluetooth

The one super high-efficiency and proprietary 7-inch speaker was designed by Phil Jones to get the most of the 70 watts (RMS)class D amplifier with liner Analog Pre-amp. This amazing woofer is complimented by our high energy 3-inch, high-frequency transducer. We have used this speaker in tens of thousands of our PA speakers and it is proven to be extremely reliable. The response of this speaker system is of the highest fidelity from 31Hz to 22KHz, which means it does not only sound great with bass but also with many other instruments, making it a very versatile amplifier.

The BASS ENGINE 17 stands as a singular channel bass amplifier boasting more than 70 watts RMS of output power. Additionally, it features the latest Qualcomm V5.1 (aptX HD) highest-quality Bluetooth codec, providing sound quality that favorably compares to that of CDs. Moreover, it can accept Drum Machines or any other stereo source through the L+R line-in sockets. The stereo headphone output supports private practice scenarios without disturbing others.

Through the utilization of an all-digital circuitry approach, the amplifier operates flawlessly in accordance with global AC voltage standards. We have spared no cost in terms of component quality, ensuring that the design centers around the essential needs of the majority of bass players. To ensure longevity, we have equipped this amplifier with a sturdy, kick-proof, acoustically transparent curved steel grille.

This amplifier integrates the identical level of high-quality components that define all PJB amplifiers. The BASS ENGINE 17 stands as a testament to our dedication to providing unparalleled sound quality and unmatched reliability at an unbeatable price point.
