We were looking to purchase an electronic drum kit for our son. We visited PMT back in September to have a look at the range of items they had. While there an assistant came to offer help and advice on the different sets that were available. My son was also allowed to try them out too. After choosing one he liked we went away to research as it was intended for a Christmas present. On looking the item up it showed that for the same money you could get extra items. We then returned and asked if they would price match as we believe in trying to support the local business, but ultimately things do come down to price and value. To our delight they were happy to price match, and as a result we even upgraded. The service from viewing to purchasing was really good, as these musical instruments are not cheap and you need good honest advice when purchasing. Would totally recommend this company.

Overview

This vintage-flavoured Custom Shop bass head delivers plenty of power and a fantastic tone, and won't disappoin't the discerning bassist who's looking for a new bass amplifier head. Ashdown has worked with a number of FUNK Masters over the past 30 + years of making bass amps, the desire to create an amplifier which meets the requirements for absolute fidelity and clarity, pre- cision tone shaping and masses of power on tap for stunning dynamics, continues to this day.

Very compact, portable and stylish bass head for the gigging pros, with 800-watts Output power!

The result is the Retroglide-800, an 800 Watts RMS funk powerhouse with hi & low impedance in- strument inputs, 12-band graphic EQ @ 30hz to 15Khz + or – 15dB, post EQ balanced DI output, mute switch with LED indicator, Output protect LED indicator just in case things get to hot under the hood, line input, effects loop and speaker output Nuetrik combi jack/speakon connector. A hand machined 6mm alloy panel adorns the front of the Retroglide, machined to protect the slid- ers from being knocked in transport.

Housed in an engineered mild steal lid, designed to protect the input and output knobs as well as provide a steady airflow for ventilation. Ashdown’s Mark Gooday said ‘the Retroglide really takes me back to my routes as a bass player, pure, simple tone at your finger tips’. Building bass amps has been much more than just a job for Gooday in his 30 + year tenure in the industry ‘bass has to be felt to be appreciated and with the specific fre- quencies available on the Retroglide you can sculpt your own tone to stand out in the crowd, cur- rently awash with powerless & toneless imitations of a BASS amp. The Retroglide does exactly what you would expect it to’. Designed to stand the test of time all Ashdown products come with a 5 year warranty as standard.
