Rack mounting an Ashdown head

Recommended Posts

I have an ashdown ABM500 non rack-moutable head that I want to put into a 4u rack along with my IEM's and possibly a rack tuner. Anyone done this before or know if its possible? I can take the metal chassis of the amp out of its mdf 'box' easily enough but is it then just a case of screwing rack ears onto the sides and mounting it or would I need to do more? On a side note, its making a horrible buzzing sound at the moment as if I'm running an overdrive throuh it. I've changed the pre-amp valve and thats not cured it, any ideas?

Speak to @Ashdown Engineering about both - they’ll certainly be able to help about the hum and can advise on the rack mount possibility. IIRC you can’t rackmount these but I may be (and would be happy to be!) wrong :)

Ashdown are on here, I`d message them re both queries, their customer service is excellent, I`m sure they`ll be able to assist:

Thanks guys, I'd already emailed them direct from the website before I posted on here. Had two replies first thing this morning from their MD and Technical guy offering to repair a fault with it as well as fitting it to a new chassis with rack ears so I can mount it. Brilliant customer service!

They put everyone else to shame with their customer service I think. Top fellas.

That's really fantastic customer service. I just hope they're making enough money to stay in business during these challenging times.
