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 TakeThe "Suitcase Compact Combo" is a surprisingly potent combo, as it has a very small footprint. I will say, it is a bit "dense" - meaning that it does have a bit of weight, no doubt due to its very sturdy construction and the fact that it contains four powerful small drivers (and their hefty magnets). But it's still quite manageable, and quite easy to carry despite having a bit more mass than you might expect, looking at it.

The tone is massive, especially considering its size. Plenty of heft in the low end if you need it, and the EQs are very usable - just dial in the tone with the easy-to-understand controls and go at it. It puts out plenty of sound and should fill most small to mid-size stages, and features a DI output for sending your signal to the "house" (the main PA board). So it should suit the needs of most players, whether amateur or professional. It also has an external speaker jack for adding a second cabinet, so you can grow as needed, or have a scalable rig for different venues or needs.

Here's the product information as provided by PJB.

Powerful Small Combo

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 watts.

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