Ashdown ABM600 EVO IV 600w Bass Head
This Ashdown ABM EVO IV 600 is the latest incarnation of the pro gigging bass head delivering more power and features. The Ashdown ABM series is used the world over by many leading bass players and bands including the Foo Fighters and Paul McCartney.
The ABM600 EVO IV is the fifth incarnation of the legendary bass head and now features a powerful 600w output and a super-versatile 9-band EQ alongside a host of essential appointments that all bass players need and love!
Plug you bass in and and you are met with two buttons - the Push Flat/Shape button gives you the option for either a flat EQ sound or an instant pre-shaped mid scoop tone. Then the Passive/Active button allows you to set the desired input level for you chosen bass. The iconic VU meter allows you to see you input level and then its on to the versatile, yet easy-to-use 9-band EQ. Three rotary knobs allow for quick access to Bass, Middle and Treble whilst 6 sliders in between allow for complete tonal tweaking.
Below the EQ section is where we see some very cool features. First up is the Variable Valve Drive Plus. With its simple on/off button and rotary knob you can go from sweet cleans to valve crunch to same fat valve overdrive. Next to the drive section is the easy to use one knob compressor. A great sounding compressor that delivers a powerful, even sound, guaranteed to help your bass fill out any mix. Finally we have the iconic Ashdown Sub Harmonic Generator - by adding an octave below the notes being played you can bring fullness to any bass part - from subtle thickening to massive lows!
Not that you'd expect any less, the ABM600 is loaded with connectivity. A tuner output, Line out, transparent FX loop and a Line Input for the connection of an external sampler or sound source.
For a the pro bass player, the Ashdown ABM600 EVO IV is sure to be all the bass head you'll ever need!
