The JDX Phantom’s design begins with the same 100% discrete class-A circuitry and transformer-coupled reactive load found on the original. This captures both the sound from the amp head along with the back electromagnetic impulse from the loudspeaker. This signal is then processed via a carefully designed multi-stage filter to emulate the tone of a 4×12 half-stack cabinet when used with guitar, or an 8×10 cabinet when used with bass. The JDX Phantom now also includes a Bass Extension switch for increased bottom end when desired, and a 100w/300w switch to change the input capability.

The ability to use 48 volt phantom, higher power amplifiers, and add a low frequency extension to the voicing makes the new JDX even more versatile than before.

MNJ has been writing articles, reviews and blogs for the DV online magazine for the last five years or so. Although he has been playing for longer than he cares to remember and is now officially an 'oldie', he is still mad for all things guitar related and when not busy in his studio he's learning new songs, practising bluegrass guitar, painting his house and taking his dogs out. If banished to a desert island and forced to take only one guitar he'd take a Les Paul. Actually, make that several Les Pauls, a Strat, a Tele, an ES-335, a vintage Martin and some boutique amps. Battery powered obviously.
