Listening to these speakers made me realize that there was more to sound than I thought. I’ve mixed 90% of all of the work I’ve produced (Jennifer Hudson/Tito Jackson) and many more. I’ve never heard anything that even comes close to these!!! These are great for sound design, scoring, mixing, recording, and writing. All around great product!!!

DERRICK RAY (Rhianna, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige)
Wayne Jones!!!!!!!!! This is the best bass amp that I’ve ever played thru! OMG this new head is absolutely insane, I’m blown away. This technology is light years ahead of everyone. Thank you thank you thank you.
I’ve never played thru an amp system where my Bass tone was so pure and solid. It’s the type of tone you search for your whole career. Glad to represent Wayne Jones!
ANDRÉ BERRY (David Sanborn)
The Wayne Jones WJBPII Bass Preamp is the best studio preamp/front end on the market. I use it into my audio interface and into my powered Wayne Jones Cabs. In the past when I’ve done sessions for various people in Los Angeles they would run the bass into their favourite mic pre and compressor combo, but now they ask “Did you bring the Wayne Jones?!” Check this unit out and bump your sound up to the level of the pros!
SCOTT COLLEY (John Scofield, Jim Hall, Pat Metheny, Michael Brecker, Herbie Hancock)
Wayne Jones has created a beautiful 2 channel tube preamp of the highest quality. It is exceptional for optimizing any high-end microphone and works seamlessly with the internal 48-volt phantom power from the preamp. This gives total control of the microphone sound with the 6 band built in EQ. The other channel can be used to combine the microphone with any pickup. The best of both worlds for acoustic bass! Thank you Wayne!
KEVIN WALKER (Prince, Justin Timberlake, Patti Labelle, Wilson Pickett, Kanye West, T.I, WILL.I.AM, Chaka Kahn, Brian Culbertson)
I’ve done many tours in my 40 Years of playing bass guitar. I’ve never Experienced a pre-amp like the Wayne Jones, that gives me studio dynamics live on Stage.. Simply Incredible.
Wayne Jones has a great unit in the WJBPII. Clean, clear and detailed and all the tube warmth you could ever need. Way to go Wayne!
DAVID DYSON (Pieces Of A Dream, Unit 3 Deep, Walter Beasley)
This new pre is killer and even more versatile now! Plenty of options in shaping your sound. Clean, crisp, fat, and defined!! Don’t sleep! Check it out for yourself!
NATE PHILLIPS (Pleasure, George Clinton, Richard Elliot, Rick Braun)
Wayne Jones adds a truly outstanding two channel bass preamp to his already fantastic line of bass gear. I can find that sweet spot setting that I’ve never been able to get with any other amp. Wayne does it again!
