I bought this amp some years ago as a back-up to my main amp. Although I gigged it a few times, whilst my main amp was in for a service, it has only seen a maximum of 4 gigs. It then became amp 3,4,5 and so on. In the meantime I spent some money on it purchasing 8 new feet (4 for the side and 4 for the bottom), a new leather handle, padded cover and the two pedals, all direct from Ashdown. The amp has lots of features and packs a punch - at the time it was Ashdown's flagship amp. Whoever gets this amp will get a well cared for and up-together amp. If you're not used to this amount of power and quality of tone, this amp will elevate your sound within the band and give your tone authority. This is the twin amp (2x 575w) model - I always admired these amps and identified it as the 4 fan version (if you look at the others in that range they have 1 or 2 fans and NOT 4 as the more powerful amp has).
Please note current PAT test sticker ( I have ALL my gigging equipment PAT tested yearly as I play so many venues that first ask for Public Liability Insurance and PAT test docs. If you require tech specs then there are lots on line, or more detailed photos, please PM me and I'll ping them over.
Located just east of Portsmouth on the South Coast (West Sussex) . A cash deal would be my preference but I could be up for trades, depends on what you have to offer - collection only.
Orange AD200b mk3 & OBC 410 - £1400
I'll try not to waffle... If you're looking at this then it's likely that you know just how good these amps and cabinets are. If you're not acquainted then please check out reviews online.
The pictures should speak for themselves but the whole rig is in truly superb condition... No marks or tears in the tolex anywhere... I look after my gear meticulously and I believe it shows here. Expect the odd light mark on the corner protectors but that's about it.
The amp was serviced / re-valved recently and the current power tubes have had no more than 30 hours use.
Orange branded covers and jack to speakon cable included.
Located in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear. Trial and inspection welcome. Delivery / meet-ups considered depending on distance.
Thanks for looking.

Cabs £250 ........£225 each.
Pick up only and no trades thanks.
What are people's thoughts on using Ashdown's AA-50-R as an upright bass combo? It looks awfully similar to a PJB Cub in terms of advertised spec, but of course the devil is in the details.
I sent an email to Ashdown around a month ago but never got a reply about this. Ideally I'd try one, but
1) There isn't one near me
2) I don't want to try one and break it
I must say the best 4x10 i have ever owned, also has a great tweeter.
