*SOLD* Ashdown ABM EVO III, 575w Head, London.
£350

Recommended Posts

Howdy folks, the thing is in very good condition, It's missing a small and irrelevant plastic mounting cover-cap on the bottom, as demonstrated in the pictures, and it boasts a little bit of dust on the upwards facing surfaces that's about the worst you can say about it, and I'll be happy to wipe the dust off for you. It lives in North London. Collection would be best, but we can discuss alternatives. It's been gigged and rehearsed a little over the last 2 years, but I'm very careful with my equipment, and everything works perfectly as it should. I'm the owner from new.

I simply have too many amplifiers for one man to use, so I'm TRYING not to hoard. It's easy to dial in a sound on these guys, the EQ's are well ranged IMO, and it's a great amp, looks good, sounds good, doesn't break the back :)

Although I don't guess that anyone here needs me to provide promotional material beyond the price and pictures, but most people seem to include the manufacturer's words, and who am I to break with tradition - Ashdown's blurb is as follows:

The ABM 500 EVO III is a 575 watts RMS bass amp head designed to satisfy both bass-purists and tech-heads alike. Three straightforward rotary tone controls provide 20dB of cut and boost at 60Hz, 660Hz and 5kHz, and are supplemented by two pairs of additional sliders giving 15dB cut and boost at 180Hz, 340Hz, 1.3kHz and 2.6kHz. The EQ can be switched in/out by a footswitch, enabling players to go from a flat fretless sound to a boosted sound via a favourite EQ setting. A single input is switchable for passive and active instruments with a blend of solid state and dual triode tube preamps stages which can be preset and selected by footswitch, providing access to a massive range of clean, warm and overdriven tones.

Also footswitchable is the on-board compressor and the mighty Ashdown sub-harmonic generator which precisely tracks the main signal and reproduces it an octave lower. A sub-harmonic level control enables the player to add just the right amount of low-end reinforcement - everything from a subtle, thickening of the sound to unbridled, bone crushing tone. The ABM 500 EVO III features a front-panel mounted balanced DI out with pre or post EQ switching, a sub-bass output, a tuner output, an FX loop and a line input for the connection of an external sampler or sound source. Output muting cuts the signal from the DI output but leaves the tuner output 'live', allowing the player to tune up in silence. A new upgraded power section has faster transient attack, more headroom and even less noise.
