The Concert Bass System and Pro Bass
Systems benefited from new cabinets in 1989. Of note, the
Concert Bass went from a 2X12/1X18 system to a system with various
combinations of 4X10, 1X 15 and 1X18 cabinets. The Pro Bass II
heads remained the same as 1988.
On the surface, the new Pro
Bass II amps looked almost the same as the previous year. It was
still offered in 200W (above), 400W (below) and 900W versions, and retained
all the specs and features of the 1988 models. The PB200 increased in
price by $10, but the PB400 and PB900 remained the same. All three were
still available in rack-mountable versions.
The Pro Bass 115
got new cabinets for 1989. The V112 cabinet used a single
15" bass speaker in a ported enclosure, versus the 115H used in
'88. The Pro
Bass 215 was upgraded with the PB400 head, and two V115 speaker
cabinets (versus the PB200 head and 215H cabinet used in '88).
The PB115 sold for $629,
and the PB215 sold for $949.
The new Concert Bass Amps was
updated once again, in this case, the use of the V410, V115 and V118
speaker cabinets. All of these amps were double stacks, using
various combinations of these new cabinets and the Pro Bass heads.

bilt on the PB400 head, with one V410 cabinet and one V115
