Get The RIGHT Amplifier for your NS Instrument

Designed by British audio electronics guru Phil Jones, the CUB II AG-150 is a sophisticated twin channel acoustic instrument amplifier with a wide frequency response, exceptional hi-fidelty sound, transparent tonal reproduction and diminutive frame - the perfect partner to the NS DESIGN range of VIOLINS, VIOLAS and CELLOS.

"A unique amplifier that absolutely supports the notion that size doesn't matter when it comes to great sound."

Art Thompson • Guitar Player • September 2016


Designed by British audio electronics guru Phil Jones, the CUB II AG-150 is a sophisticated twin channel acoustic guitar amplifier that - courtesy of its wide frequency response, exceptional hi-fidelty sound, transparent tonal reproduction and diminutive frame - is also a great portable solution for amplifying all electric concert instruments and thus serves as a perfect partner to the NS Design range of violins, villas and cellos.

The CUB II's preamp stage features a suite of elegantly simple, easily accessible top mounted controls as well as a comprehensive selection of additional connectivity options, with a FX loop, auxiliary stereo input, headphone out, line out, tuner out and low impedance, balanced XLR output with ground lift.

Twin channels with individual 3 band EQ offer a choice of 1/4" Phone and XLR inputs with switchable input sensitivity ensuring that the CUB performs impressively with both passive and active instruments and microphones whilst the 2 x 5" wide-response neodymium speakers, responsive to an exceptionally wide frequency range (80Hz to 1kHz) make the CUB II perfect for faithfully reproducing the rich nuanced sound of traditional stringed instruments.

Delivering a generous 100 watts of power, the CUB II is loud, punchy and flexible with an impressive bottom-end, far fuller and tighter than one should reasonably expect from such a small cabinet, making it great for live folk and jazz performances, electrified classical recitals, even amped-up rock shows.

Of course you probably wouldn't use this small an amp on Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage but, for street performances, rehearsals and small to medium size venues, the CUB II's power, projection and clean, transparent, clean sonic personality truly belie its price tag and its size.

Simply put, the CUB II is a heck of a lot of amp in a remarkably small package - complete with padded gig bag it weighs just 6.8Kg / 15lbs - and, with a switchable 100/240V AC power supply, it makes a great, globe-trotting travel partner.

"If you're looking for an amp for particularly acoustic endeavours and small rooms, or a monitor for lower volume gigs, you're unlikely to find anything that sounds better at ANY price or size"
