Price or Trade Value : £490

This Phil Jones Bass Compact 8 was only bought in May, so is virtually as new. Only gigged a handful of times. Although I don't play EUB there are many reviews online raving about this as a cab for EUB. It is very transparent and very capable. The 8 x 5" speakers are very transparent and with a rating of 800W this 4 ohm cab can handle almost anything you throw at it. Full bottom end without any boom and incredible clarity. Price is for collection from Colchester, but can arrange to meet within a reasonable distance. Built in trolley is very handy and if you use it on an angled stand it stops your head from falling off the back!

TC Classic 450 head is also available £275

How do you keep the amp stuck to the side? :)

What is the depth of sound like with these cabs?

Haha! The shots were upright on my phone, but turned when I uploaded them and can't see any way to turn them back!

The sound is very full. Until you hear it you wouldn't believe what these 5" speakers can put out. They are completely uncoloured, so there is no over-enhanced bottom end that you usually get with bass cabs, not a lot of muddy boom. You just hear the natural tone of the instrument
