"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 AG-100 is a sophisticated 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 range of violins, villas and cellos.

The AG-100's preamp stage features a suite of elegantly simple controls as well as a comprehensive selection of additional connectivity options with an FX loop, line out, tuner out and low impedance, balanced XLR output with ground lift. The single 1/4" switchable input jack (from 0db to -10db) ensures that the CUB performs impressively with both passive and active instruments whilst twin, wide-response neodymium speakers responsive to an exceptionally wide frequency range (80Hz to 16kHz) make the AG-100 perfect for faithfully reproducing the rich nuanced sound of traditional stringed instruments.

Delivering a generous 100 watts of power, the AG-100 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's power, projection and clean, transparent, clean sonic personality truly belie its price tag and its size. 

Simply put, the AG-100 is a heck of a lot of amp in a remarkably small package and, weighing in at just over 5Kg (11.5 lbs) and with a handy universal DC power supply meaning you never have to worry about switching voltage wherever in the World you find yourself, it makes a truly great globe-trotting travel partner.
