The Phil Jones Bass Briefcase 100-Watt 2x5" Bass Combo Amplifier was developed for the bassist who needs a high performance practice amp that does not limit their playing ability. It provides rich, deep tones that are usually associated with much bigger boxes. The dynamic mid-range and high frequencies come through with incredible transparency. The two dedicated 5 inch drivers were specifically designed for the briefcase, driven by a high current 100-watt (RMS) amplifier housed in rigid metal chassis.

The ability to run on AC power or 12V sealed lead acid battery makes the Briefcase a highly portable and compact package that is truly flexible at multiple environments. Being small, clean and powerful, it is also a great amp for musicians who seek a natural reproduction of their instrument. It’s an ideal match for upright basses.

At 30 lbs and 100 watts, the Briefcase easily handles the low E string and can even accommodate the low B! 5-band EQ lets you dial in the proper tone. A variety of outputs allow you to practice in private, expand your sound with an extension cabinet when needed, or go direct to a mixing board. The Phil Jones Bass Briefcase is great for both electric and acoustic basses.

You really need this!!


The size and sound of this amp stand out above, and beyond, anything else out there. While you are not going to use it for a 200 plus size venue, it works great for smaller and intimate sized venues. It is very simple to use, the learning curve is a straight line from purchase to sounding great. Honestly you have to be a novice with no experience at all not to get great sounds from this amp. I also use it for acoustic guitar, still sounds great. As a stand alone unit it's great. When I use it as a head for different cabs, or as the front end of a more complex set-up it fills the bill. As a pre-amp it couples great with larger class D amps. The DI box is fantastic. For the size, price, versatility, not to mention the sound. You can not get a better amp than this. I do not use the battery power option so I have no comment about that. I have been using my amp for almost five years, three days/Wk 2-3 Hrs at a time. Best invesment in equiptment I have ever made.

The ultimate bass amp, honestly.


This amp is the best in the world if: -you don't have an ego -you are like the 99% of bass players and don't have a roadie. - you aren't a slave to brand recognition and marketing techniques. This is truly an amazing sounding amp; if you did a blind comparison against many of today's most popular amp companies, I can guarantee that you couldn't tell the difference in tone. That is coming from someone with a very discerning ear. And yes,the 5 inch speakers are certainly off-putting, but they come pretty close to sounding like a full-size speaker. It depends on you're priorities, but as far as I'm concerned, in the real world this is the only amp that provides the most benefits and the least cons.
