With three controls for bass, middle and treble, as well as either 15dB of cut and boost at low 22Hz or high 1.6kHz, this amp has many different tonal possibilities at your disposal. Combined with ‘Bright’ and ‘Deep’ settings, you can go from a driving attack to a rounded warm sound with ease. Added is the trademark Ashdown sub-harmonic generator, which creates harmonics an octave below the notes being played. This is very effective in thickening the sound in a unique way, adding a nice lower end to your bass tone. The compressor included in the head allows you to fatten the low end, and can add definition to a run of notes, picking out any quieter ones. The 300 watts into the two 10 inch speakers really move air, and an added high-frequency tweeter gives the amp even greater top-end bite. This is a versatile (and loud) solid-state combo, and with its comprehensive tone controls can make a large variety of nice bass tones.
