Legendary bassist Bakithi Kumalo has selected a Phil Jones Bass touring rig for the Paul Simon’s Homeward Bound Tour, also being billed as his farewell tour. Bakithi has been touring with Simon since the multi Grammy Award winning album, Graceland, which included his prodigious bass solo break in the song “Call Me Al”. Kumalo is often credited for creating a new style of bass playing on the album.

Kumalo has selected the PJB D-1000 amp and C-9 speaker enclosures as his stage rig. He prefers the D-1000 because it combines high power (1000 watts) with PJB’s signature natural tone in a lightweight (5.3 lbs) box. The C9 cabinets handle a massive 900 watts each and are comprised of nine 5” PJB Piranha Chrome Dome speakers.

Established in 2002, PJB and AIRPULSE Guitar Amps are divisions of Phil Jones American Acoustic Development. PJB is dedicated to using the latest technology in the design of compact bass amps and loudspeakers that achieve highest in fidelity and volume. Phil Jones owns several patents for loudspeaker technology.
