*SOLD*Ashdown CTM100 *Bargain Price Valve Power*£500

Recommended Posts

*now sold through Facebook 


Ashdown CTM100 valve amp' in absolutely immaculate condition,complete with Roqsolid cover & owners manual.

100 watts of all valve power & it is very very loud,(100 watts of valve power is silly loud when cranked up).

I play in a classic rock band with a loud guitarist & a mental drummer with no issue whatsoever,even on a fairly big festival stage.

It sounds fantastic,with tons of creamy tone or a beautiful valve break up overdrive if that's your thing. (it's definitely mine)

This amp has had the eq mod' to bass,mid & treble  found below,which works a treat giving the eq a much greater range of adjustment which makes it a truly versatile amp.(stock these can be a bit muddy sounding but not this one :) )

Price is fixed & a total bargain for one of these lovely amp's

Collection from Harrogate only,it's worth the drive as I think this is a silly cheap price.

I'm only selling as the arthritis in my poor old knees is crying out for a lighter rig,(not that this is particularly heavy).

Not looking for trades as I already know what I'm replacing this with.

Ashdown's info' https://ashdownmusic.com/products/copy-of-ctm-300-head

Payment bank transfer or cash on collection please.

Thank you.

Fender Bassman Neo 410 also for trade -

I have just got one of these a few weeks ago and they are great things (and thanks for the tone info, although mine might be different from the others).

Good luck with the sale!

It's cheap though 😁

I didn’t say it wasn’t. Not surprised it’s gone.

I just bought a Little Bastard and that’s more than enough for my needs at the mo. I’d love to have both but sadly 4 amps is a little overkill 😂

      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 (well over £100.00 and your gain as the amp has hardly been used since) - all direct from Ashdown
      8 new feet (4 for the side and 4 for the bottom)
      a new leather handle
      padded cover 
      x2 pedals  - change between the various options A - EQ on/off, pre set signature Ashdown sound & B Valve Drive and Sub Octave
      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. I put reflective stickers on the two foot pedals so I knew what was what  on stage - they can easily be removed - but this highlights the availability of choice of the  EQ section, the Ashdown Pre-set tone option, Valve Drive and Sub Octave to you mid performance.
      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.

      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.

      Now here's something you won't see every day!
      In fact I've never seen another one for sale.
      Absolute highest quality all valve construction - hand built in US, featuring point to point wiring.
      Features two preamp valves and 8 6550 power valves.
      Gold Plated RCA connectors - I'm including one of OBBM's RCA to Speakon cables.
      Demeters list price on these is $3500 on top would be shipping 20% VAT + Import duty of 2.5% which will amount to something like $4,500
      This power amp is in near immaculate condition with just a couple of minor scratches on the side of the casing.
      From Demeter site
      Designed for heavy duty use, the VTHF-300M is equally at home in the studio or on the road. Its all tube high fidelity design rivals and surpasses the sound quality of many of the so-called audiophile amplifiers, yet sells for substantially less. Its awesome power (300 W RMS pentode/150 W triode) can run any speaker through its paces with the accuracy, definition and fullness that only tube amplifiers can deliver. Featuring a custom designed and high current bifiler audio output transformer, regulated B+ to the preamplifier section, individual output tube bias for long tube life, pentode/triode switch, variable feedback control, heavy duty binding posts, gold plated RCA input connector (1/4 phono and Jensen balanced 3-pin also available), optional two speed fan, toroidal power transformer, solid power supply (880 mf @ 800 volts), Demeter selected tubes, a beautiful heavy duty aluminum and steel chassis, all hand built construction in the U.S.A. using only the best quality components.
      Output power: 300 watts RMS pentode / 150 watts RMS triode
      Output impedance: 4 and 8ohms
      Nominal input impedance: 100kohms
      THD: Less than 0.05 @ 1 watt
      Bandwidth: 20 to 20 kHz - .7dB
      Preamp tubes: 1 - 12AX7a, 1 - 12AT7a
      Power tubes: 8 - Svetlana 6550c
      Mounting: 4 space standard rack
      Operating voltage: 240/120V AC
      Dimensions: 7" x 19" x 12"
      Bass Player Magazine reviewer probably summed it up perfectly when he ended his review with:
      “It's hard to go back to a solid-state power amp after listening to the VTHF-300M's heavenly sound. this powerhouse is also one of the few pieces of professionally audio gear that's equally at home kicking out a 4-string funk as it is filling a living room with Mozart. You'll probably have to save a ton of pennies to afford one, but it will put a smile on your every time you use it.”
