Phil Jones Bass Ear-Box EB-200 Personal Stage Monitor

Hear the mid frequencies of your bass onstage so you can monitor clearly and EQ properly with the ingenious Phil Jones Bass Ear-Box EB-200 stage monitor.

Ever wondered why your bass amp never seems to sound the same at different venues? The answer is that your bass cabinet is heavily affected by the environment it is in, and where you are standing in relation to it. What you hear is the sound of your speakers mixed in with the reflected sounds from the walls, ceilings and floors. Basically, your speaker has a different sound on and off axis and the further you are away from it the more sound energy that is reflected is blended into the sound. If the room acoustics are not ideal, the sound that you'll get will be uneven and muddy. Standing in front of your bass rig up close gives you the most clarity, but at the expense of your audience. You body will block the mid range and highs, soaking them up like a sponge. So your audience will hear a far more degraded sound than you.

EQ is not the answer -- adding the Phil Jones Ear-Box on a microphone stand is!

The Phil Jones Bass Ear-Box produces a near field sound that, when positioned close to you, will give you far greater clarity because it greatly increases the ratio of direct sound to the undesirable acoustics of the venue. It does not produce the full spectrum of a bass; it complements the low frequencies of your cabinet.

In-ear monitors can leave you feeling isolated from the environment and traditional stage floor monitors may bleed into areas where they are not wanted. The Ear Box is in its own category -- not a stage monitor or an earphone, it's somewhere in between.

The read more speakers in the Ear-Box are ultra-light but very powerful neodymium speakers. The total weight is 2.4 pounds. This allows it to be screw-mounted on a vertical straight (not boom type) microphone stand. It is positioned at ear level on the opposite side of where your amp is. The distance should be about 3 feet from you. Moving it closer will increase the loudness of the Ear-Box. If you want to reduce the treble, simply angle the Ear-Box away from you: The greater the angle, the greater the attenuation of high frequencies. What may sound unusual is that the Ear Box has virtually no load on an amplifier. It is very high impedance: almost 1000 ohms at bass frequencies, tapering down to 24 ohms, at the very highest frequencies. It actually stabilizes the speaker load on you amplifier by acting as a ZOBEL network. The Ear-Box's high impedance allows it to be connected to just about any bass amplifier, right up to 1000 watt RMS output!

If your bass amp has an External Speaker output, you can feed the Ear-Box a Speakon cable from your bass amp, and your full-range monitoring system is complete.
