PHIL JONES BASSPhil Jones and the staff at AAD (American Acoustic Development) continue to develop novel state-of-the-art acoustic instrument amplifiers including the new CUB AG-300...the "Super Cub."
As with its other models, much of the "magic" of the PJB aka AAD sound in the CUB AG-300 stems from the company's proprietary long-throw 5" full-range drivers. These little speakers react nearly instantly to an instrument's input, enunciating fundamental and upper harmonic frequencies with clarity, definition and composure.
The AG-300 speaker cabinet features four traditional forward facing speakers plus two non-traditional upward facing speakers. This unique combination allows the AG-300 to develop its sound for the audience as well as disperse it around the stage for the musicians. Clever and highly effective, it also provides a certain 3-D image that complements the nature of acoustic instruments.
Voiced for acoustic guitars and related string instruments (violin, mandolin, etc), the CUB AG-300's preamplifier features a 5-band EQ section at specific frequency points. These additional controls help mold the amplifier's sound to your particular instrument or acoustics of the room/venue.
The CUB AG-300 power section generates 250 watts RMS with a natural sounding digital class A/B amplifier. When pushed to extremes, the amp's intelligently designed circuitry will engage a soft compression mode rather than allow the sound to distort or risk component damage.
A balanced XLR output for connecting to a PA supplies the CUB AG-300 with flexibility to meet most any gigging or recording requirement. Effects send/return allows you to plug in any special processing you require.
Weighing in at 26 Lbs/12Kg and measuring only slightly more than a cubic foot, the CUB AG-300 provides an exemplary and complete amplification solution for the acoustic instrumentalist.
