Includes custom made padded vinyl covers, and an OBBM speaker lead which is the perfect length for connecting the combo and cab.
These are the original versions made in Italy, from the era before markbass moved production to Indonesia
See posts below for more pics!
I have owned both the combo and cab from new. They are both in great condition, they have never been moved without the covers on! No technical issues whatsoever. The only signs of wear are on the feet and handle (which are easily replaceable).
The head is a rebadged Little Mark ii. 500W output. It has a Class A/B power section which allegedly is part of the original markbass "magic". Search talkbass and you will find essays on this! The newer little mark heads have Class D power sections which apparently don't sound the same! All I can say is the sound of this amp is simulatenously crystal clear and full-fat creamy... she puts a smile on my face every time!
NB the cab is the original version which is designed to stack with this combo. The newer versions are the same width, but not the same depth, and therefore do not stack securely.

Ashdown ABM 500 Combo for sale. 4x10. Good condition for age. Perfect working order. Can be tried out at rehearsal room in central Manchester. 10 minutes walk from Piccadilly train station. Would require collection via car due to weight.
Price Drop - £60 collected - I need the room!! This old warrior has served me well over the years, and has spent the last few in a rehearsal room. It was serviced last year by a professional electronics technician and works just fine. However, space is needed now so it's got to go. As many will know, these are bombproof combos but very heavy so collection is a must. Fortunately, we're just off Junction 29 of the M1 so access is easy. Any questions please let me know.
Great small combo.
Excellent old-school tone and plenty of power for small/medium gigs.
Line-out works well for larger rooms with PA support. I've done tons of shows with this fellah over the last year or so from little bars to large theatres and with various bands and line-ups and it's always come up with the goods. Sound engineers like it,too...
Comes with a flightcase style slip cover which,in addition to protecting the lovely diamond blue tolex, also serves to raise the amp up to a good working height without increasing the stage footprint.
Loads of positive stuff about this fine bit of kit here https://www.talkbass.com/threads/ampeg-b-100r-rocket-aficionados.487110/
I always do a load of research when I get some new gear and I struggled to find anything negative about these. Don't be put off by its relatively low power rating - I play in several bands of various types and all of 'em have been happy enough with the the sound and presence of this ol'boy. I don't suppose it'd be much good for a Rooster show but I've got a big dumb rig for that sort of thing.
It's not a lightweight amp - about 25kg - but I've put locking castored wheels on it and the handle's nice and comfy.
Only selling as I've just picked up a Rumble 500 for a SONG and I don't need two high-quality compact combos.
I'm in Padiham (near Burnley) if you want to come round and try it out.
Can pack and post. Probably cost a bit, though...
