Ashdown Rootmaster EVO II C210T 500 - 2x10" 500w Bass Combo
The Ashdown RM-C210T-500-EVO II is the latest version of Ashdown's popular 500w bass combo. It delivers workhorse reliability, a light weight design, great tone and a superb feature set, all at an affordable price.
New appointments for this latest version of the RM500 EVO II 2x10" combo head include a sleek, matt anodized alloy finish...why you ask? Well, the team at Ashdown have listened to players and found that by replacing the previous polished steel front plate, it makes for easier readings of your settings when on stage under bright lights. The RM500 EVO II combo also comes equipped with an on-board headphone preamp, essential for those silent practice sessions.
Made from light weight ply, this Ashdown Rootmaster 2x10" bass amp will certainly appeal to the regular gigging player who is fed up having to deal with heavy weight combos. Light in weight it maybe, but don't worry, that classic Ashdown tone is still here in abundance!
The rugged buffalo tolex cover and black grille look the part, whilst the handy bar handles make transportation even easier. On the rear of the combo is a 8ohm extension cab, simply add an extra cab and you have access to the full 500w of power that's on hand.
The White Line speakers not only standout in looks, but they also aid the amp in delivering a pleasingly refined tone. Added tonal versatility and top end comes courtesy of the built-in tweeter which includes a high/low/off switch.
The combo features a comprehensive 5-band EQ section that'll alllow you to get the sound you want, quickly and easily - from warm Motown tones to grindy rock tones to modern slap sounds. With the addition of the Shape button a fixed E.Q. is superimposed on the pre-amp to give a bass and treble boost to the sound.
Three cool features on the RMC210T500 EVO II come in the way of the Compressor, Drive and Sub controls. The Comp control controls the amount of compression that is added to your tone - adding definition, tonal characteristics, sustain and volume control. The Drive control adds some added bite and grind to your tone...perfect for rocking out. Finally the Sub control adds Ashdown's Sub Harmonics feature, giving you an octave below the notes that are played - a great way to get some earth shattering lows.
