Which valve amp

Recommended Posts

Ok so I use the Aguilar DB751 as my main amp but want a valve back up/ smaller but a decent size. My TH500 is up for sale so looking for a home use and gig size back up. Weight doesn’t bother too much but must have heft and presence. Budget £750 ish

Any suggestions appreciated 

Paul

Nah. Too big for me. I’m not greedy, but you could drop it down to Essex for me. 😂

Oh, and as modelled by @wateroftyne, there's this: 

 

Yeah I’d thought of that too! Maybe I need a shot of it. The Ashdown looks a possibility though 👍

Just found one, almost brand new for £500, doesn’t seem a bad price. I’ve had the ABM Evo 600 which was nice, how does this compare? Any info welcome?

I've not used an ABM before so couldn't give you a comparison but it is the best sounding amp I have ever used,warm,punchy & very loud.

The bass,mid & treble controls don't do a lot but Ashdown sent me 3 new pots of different frequencies  which have made the eq much more useable,a mod I would recommend.

For £500 it's a total steal,they are brilliant amps.

If the CTM100 is like the CTM30/LB30 then it's NOTHING like the ABM. Not better or worse, just different, and the LB30 and ABM (and Orange Terror 500) are my fav amps I've ever tried...

If it's the CTM you've bought then good on you,I'm sure you will love it once you get used to it.

Any questions just ask 👍

It is indeed, CTM100, I was tempted with the Handbox too but £500 man, seemed too good to pass up. Yeah I’ll fire some questions if needed when it lands, ta mate

£500 is an insanely good price for an insanely good amp. Hope you enjoy it!

Oh yeah !,  I have one of these Ctm100's,  everything that the other members have said and better all rounder than my Ashdown Bta300 hybrid, which I can barely carry !
