Ashdown CTM 30 Valve Bass Head

Ashdown CTM 30 Valve Bass Head



Order before 3pm Mon-Fri for Next Day Delivery

The Ashdown CTM-30 tube bass amplifier head is all about big tone in a tiny package that's perfect for recording. Plug your bass into the passive ECC83-driven preamp and dial in just the right amount of growl.

A fantastic PMT Exclusive low price, was £799!

Valve tone at home and in studio, with enough poke for small gigs too. Valves defined a lot of early bass tone but Ashdown have brought things up to date as well, with modern punch and solid low end.

Equipped with hi and low inputs for active or passive basses,  CTM-30 combines traditional Bass, Mid and Treble EQ with additional flexibility of Mid Shift, Bass Shift and Bright Switching, unlocking a wide range of classic and contemporary all-tube tone from its ECC83 and ECC82 preamp tubes and smooth but powerful 30W EL84 power section.

The standard tone controls give you a wide range of uber-musical sounds, while Deep, Mid Shift, and Bright switches let you fine-tune your tone to the situation. The EQ section is a passive tone circuit - meaning if all controls are at zero there will be no sound through the amp. All the controls are highly interactive, giving you the possibility to dial in exactly what tone you want. Don’t be scared to dial the pots all the way to get the most from the controls.

For a limited time only - PMT have secured a great deal on these superb British bass amps, available at a stunning low price while stocks last!
