Excellent Birmingham store service - Dave A****
I was greeted by a chap called Dave and i explained i was interested in buying another guitar, a Fender Stratocaster to be precise. I explained i wanted to try a few options and in particular i was attracted to flashy looking guitars. I selected several to play and Dave took me to a practice room where i spent a couple of hours playing different guitars. His knowledge was excellent and he was very patient. Dave listened to what i wanted as a musician and provided the right equipment when i needed it followed by advice on the differences between each one. I settled on a very good guitar and a couple of pedals. If you are going to buy from PMT, GO TO THE BIRMINGHAM STORE.

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.
