Total Watts

  1. For sale is my Ashdown RM500 Evo II Bass head, only used at home for practice and a few gigs as a backup amp. A compact and lightweight amp solution with enough balls for most gigs. All works as it should except the headphone output which has never worked since I bought it from new. Just so you know, sometimes in transit you may inadvertently press the headphone button in and then on the gig don't get any sound output. Foxed me for a while first time I tried using it on a gig but just press the switch out and all is good. Don't know if it's just this one but when pressing the headphone button in I just get noise and nothing in headphones, it's not something I want to use anyway so never got it looked at. Amp is all good other than that, blue mute light works. Selling at a sensible price because of the headphone output issue but don't let that put you off, it's all good. cheapest I can see new is £459. Try out and collection in Poole, Dorset or can post in a well protected box at cost. Thanks. blurb: Now in its second evolution is the RM-500. The 500-watt power section of the RM500 EVO has been developed to maintain a deep low end, defined mids and transient highs delivering its output into a 4-ohm load. Ashdown Rootmaster heads are the perfect choice for working bassists looking for power and features without the weight. The Rootmaster EVO series’ pre amp now includes a passive and active input jack socket for use with high and low output instruments, this sets a clear signal path to the input control enabling you to fine tune your input level using the trademark Ashdown VU meter. With the signal at its optimal level, you then hit the rich features designed enhance your tone, such as the shape button, 5-band EQ and on-board compressor. The drive control, as always delivers a delectable valve emulated over-drive, whilst the sub harmonic controls add further fatness to your tone - both can be foot-switched via an FS 2 footswitch (sold separately). Rootmaster EVO heads also feature an upgraded power section plus a handy mute button. What’s even cooler is when switched to mute, the trademark Ashdown Engineering VU meter changes from orange to cool blue – creating the perfect on stage mood lighting between sets.

  2. Relisted for sale, a 1989/1990 MIJ P Bass serial no: I 030250. Beautiful sunburst P with serious growl. Has wear to bottom edge likely from a guitar stand or similar. Some other light dings and scratches as you would expect from 30+ years. This P is a peach and has a beautifully grained Rosewood fretboard and naturally aged chrome wear. Nice low action. Weight 8lbs. 43mm nut. Soft case included in sale. No trades please. Any try out welcome in Poole, collection or meet up. Thanks.
  3. Tbh I can’t remember if I listed here or somewhere else. Sorry.
  4. I did have it for a while and only sold it on as bought a Fender P.
  5. probably a bit optimistic on original price 🤔, reduced.
  6. I have played this and it is by far the best 5'er ever (only my opinion). So comfortable and lush in all departments.
  7. For Sale, Sandberg California TM2 5 string Hard Core Aged in Roquefort Blue. It came with the standard Delano pick ups which I found a bit bright so is currently fitted with Black Labels. The Delanos are included in the sale if you want to switch them back. Active/passive. Fretted Maple fingerboard with no dots. 34" scale. Weight 4kg. Sandberg padded bag included. A beautiful instrument which I may regret selling but have something else lined up. Price from Sandberg would be around the £2400 and a long wait so this is a huge saving. Thanks.
  8. A great experience dealing with Brian, he packed the Bass really well and sent it off very quickly, it arrived in a couple of days. Many thanks and recommended.
  9. Deciding to hang on to this for the moment, thanks all.
  10. For sale is this lovely Ampeg B100 Rocket combo, in great condition and working order. 240v. You probably know what these are about, good old retro sounding solid state combo. Comes with Roqsolid cover and wheels. Some snagging on the front cloth but nothing too drastic. Collection/try out in Poole, Dorset. Will not courier but could possibly arrange meet up.
