New Rig Day: GK and Phil Jones Rig!

Just picked this up yesterday. GK MB500 paired with a Phil Jones Compact 8 cab (800w, 4ohm, 8x5" drivers!). Mini rig of doom.

Let me tell you I was mega skeptical of the PJ cab and it's advertised power and volume. I literally called every Phil jones dealer in Australia and asked to speak with their bass reps about them to voice my skepticism...and WOW I am blown away...this could easily keep up with a loud band and then some! The bottom end is defined and tight and cab has a really quick response.

As for the MB500, we all know what it does :) Clean GK tone and headroom for days.

Very cool, thanks for sharing. So you weren't able to try one out before you bought it?

I tried a double 4 today, very clear, clean sound. 1st time I've tried a Phil jones.

I imagine your cab will be just as clean and detailed but louder and with more bottom end.

I actually did try it as I bought it locally. Amazing power and sound from something which looks like a practice amp. I'll chime in again after it's first gig.

The tiny bit of exposure I've had to Phil Jones stuff is big claims backed by results. I love the idea of this rig, and am very keen to hear it in action.
Where did you buy it from if you don't mind me asking?

How good is the PJB gear! I had the chance to use a C4 cab for a few weeks and the bottom end of the 4x5" sounded like a 12" but with a very tight and punchy response.

I adored the tone of the PJB Flightcase 150W 4x5" combo.
