Bakithi Kumalo & Phil Jones Bass 

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 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 will be turning to 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 tone in a lightweight (5.3 lbs) box. The C9 cabs handle 900 watts each and are comprised of nine 5-inch PJB Piranha Chrome Dome speakers. If we ask very nicely, perhaps Bakithi will show us just what it can do.
