Ashdown ABM 500 EVO III - 575 Watt Bass Guitar Amplifier Head

A head for anyone, the ABM 500 EVO III boasts a massive 575 watts (RMS) along with an array of handy controls. Everything about the new EVO III is upgraded - more headroom, faster transient attack and less noise - you won't be dissapointed!

Takes You From Zero to Rock Hero

Thanks to the valve drive control on the Ashdown ABM 500 EVO III allows you to choose whatever tonal character you're seeking. From a pristine solid-state preamp tone, up to true-valve overdrive sounds blended into your signal, right through to a fat overdrive sound, the variable valve drive can take you there.

Ashdown ABM 500 EVO III Bass Guitar Amplifier Head Highlights

  • All-valve, 575 Watt Bass Amp head
  • Features what's considered by many to be the best EQ in the business
  • One-knob compression control
  • Sub-harmonic generator
  • Footswitchable options for valve drive, compression, eq, and sub-harmonic generator
  • Perfectly suited for use with Ashdown ABM Cabinets

The Best EQ In The Business

The 3-band EQ rotary controls provide a 20dB cut and 60Hz, 150Hz & 340Hz boost, along with 15dB cut and boost at 180Hz, 340Hz, 1.3kHz and 2.6kHz slider controls, which offers you outstanding tonal shaping options, in an easy-to-use format.

Bags of Extras

Also included is the standard compressor and heavy duty Ashdown sub-harmonic generator, reproducing  the main signal an octave lower to creating ultra low tones. In addition to this there's an array of professional-grade connections to hook your amp up to ABM cabinets or straight-into the mixing desk.
