When Ashdown announces a new bass amp, it's always good to pay attention! After all, for 20 years they have been one of the leading manufacturers of bass amplifiers, used by professional bassists worldwide. One of their latest products, the ABM 600 EVO IV Bass Head, is arriving at PMT next week. In fact, according to Ashdown, we'll be the first retailers, worldwide, to be stocking them!
Immediately identifiable on stages around the world thanks to its glowing VU meter, the Ashdown ABM has been a firm favourite with professional gigging bass players for the best part of twenty years.
Now in its fifth incarnation, ABM EVO IV pairs class-leading preamp sophistication with uprated powerhouse performance and an all-new 9-band EQ - available in three head versions, two are rated at 600W and one at 1200W. The NEW 9-band EQ is a revelation of sonic perfection and will surprise older ABM users. This sophisticated EQ, with familiar Bass, Middle and Treble controls also features six sliders providing precision cut and boost at 100Hz, 180Hz, 340Hz, 1.3KHz, 2.6KHz and 5KHz. The EQ can be switched in via footswitch taking the player from a flat fretless sound to their favourite EQ setting instantly.
The ABM 600 EVO IV teams the ABM preamp with a gut-rumbling 600W power stage.
This bass head really packs a great punch and is ideal for any gigging situation you can be met with.
