    Preamp has a lamp, 307 W, equalyser, etc.

    UTILIZATION

    Getting started is simple, one rule for the input does not saturate seen on the meter, the output and équalyser, then editing since the output varies as a function of équalyser ... there is a sound easily , we can then refine the manual ... ... uh ... blah ...
    on the other hand, all the bass players who have connected their top bass at concerts quasiments have not touched my settings and played live with having a good sound .... one of them broke down and bought the same ashdown after!

    So I played with a Rickenbacker 4003, which requires a bass amp that follows behind if we do not want it pukes all over ca ... Ben does serious, everyone of my hallucinates her! But I'm not engineer, I can play, but expliqueer sound with words is not my thing ... sorry

    Recently, I added a pedal .... ashdown! The drive more ... I mainly used to alleviate the quiet passages ... suddenly, it's the opposite ... quiet passages without pedals ... and when I want to send ... well it Severe send!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about 5 years, and I'm very happy, I no longer try something else, it makes me ... What should I blame the head, the buttons are too sensitive, you barely keys He made a full turn ... by manipulating your head, you have every chance of losing your settings ...
    Otherwise, the preamp has lights, it is ... for the rest, I only use the équalyser and basta ...
    To summarize, it is a good head, plenty powerful ... I do not see too much interest in a 500, see the 900 .. but hey, each his own, and yet, I play hard .. . but it's enough for repeated ... for large scenes, anyway, you're back ....
    Aesthetically, we like it or not ... I like .. and then, it's tough ... after the series made in PRC, I do not know

    In short, plenty to have fun at the equipment, the limit of too many buttons (but not cest a Mesa Road King either). My rating on this point: although a good 9 to 10 MRIT I put on principle, but I do not really see what is missing just a pity that the EST (or even) is not included footswitch, but I Motes

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is relatively simple to touch a bass amp adj: you plug the bass, it RULES dentre gain, which is ais with VU meters, and pramp balance between the lamp and the transistors with the grind knob (personal, CSTA back to the lights, almost).
    The three large knobs of Leq more than enough to carve a EMDU its not the most fastidious can then sen to heart with joy supplmentaires 4 sliders. Remember denclencher lgaliseur concerned ugly the small switch suitable the very first time, failing to ask questions about lutil of knobs: D
    About the manual, in English only Made in England requires, nothing spcial report, but not jen expecting much either
    Careers News of Note: For now also 9.

    SOUNDS

    Then the sound jOperation this head recently on the local cabinet RPET (a monstrous 2x15 + tweeter, which strongly resembles a sub qua PA rather a real bass speaker) , and recording on the baffle dun pal (a Behringer BA115). OF USE yet live but will not be long.
    Jy a branch Mex Jazz Bass Deluxe 5 string active, an Ibanez SRX 705 grants in ACGCG occasionally an old James Spirit in drop D, and all through the dune and a Russian Big Muff Boss GT6B.
    Jen gets her every time a serious but not pteux, powerful but not aggressive, and of course that twists as mediator of Latakia, all without touching LEQ virtually nothing quen assaying the knob Lamp and gain. Sound close to Lesprit Ampeg. But LEQ is not so far up the numbers, such as knobs and sliders are effective and focused, including deuxime cursor, right on the frquence typical mediator of Latakia, to add (or, conversely, cb) a little while the sound dattaque Vitantis davoir a clack sound of each shot plectrum (phnomne frquent mdiums for off-center and ill-suited to the game mdiator).
    The pRSET dgalisation nest not too brand while Submitted as it expands and deepens the bass without affecting the acute mdiums. Ideal for the slap, no doubt, but I do not slapper. Note that a subtle level: pRSET is activated by default, you must Snap the switch to disengage the pRSET! Parat Linverse me more logical, but cest of English who conus the trick then not have to look include: mad:
    Loctaver I do not believe it'm not too bad notes but I find it quite powerful. JOperation any dj that of the fawn GT6B, jai not specially want you add a footswitch to control more than the head, my configuration is quite complex as dj a, I'm a bass player, not a tap dancer
    My rating: I put 10 for sound, let's be crazy! : D

    Edit after 6 months:
    In order to do justice the head, jai invested in a cabinet Ampeg STV-15-ET. Lon if the reputable cabinet combines the richness of serious natural roundness of the head Ashdown, we get an evil combination, suitable for stir-mnage stomach! So much for the firming of the jai decrease slightly the proportion of lamps in my rglage (jaime good bass sounds, but not mushy either, jaime keep some slamming and attack).
    Small BMOL: Due to the lack of lightweight slamming the cabinet, the bass sound has a little trouble piercing through the guitar sound, so I must go up a little volume. But this problem should soon be rsolu, we need a 2x10 jajoute to switch to 4 ohms and add a little precision in the midrange frequencies. I do not think the head is involved! But be careful all the same to the choice of the cabinet that we will combine this head.
    I pass 9 / 10 saw quen now my sound is trs good but not perfect

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for three weeks, I will wash day After a few months of use.
    In my research dpart dampli, javais identified that jaime sounds like so lamp gnral sounds, and sounds typical Ampeg in particular. But as I am not intgriste lamps, so jai tried many different brand heads start with Ampeg (SVT III, but B2 and B5), of Eden, SWR, Hartke , Peavey, Mark Bass, etc. etc.. And that Ashdown.
    Ultimately remains in the running are the SVT III and Ashdown. But the SVT put a good quarter to let dheure tame (its a beautiful and remarkable versatility, but also a true gas plant), while Ashdown put on my ass in 30 seconds. EQ flat dosing knob on the bottom to light the lamps, the gain is up and the sound jaime PAF. As jaime not spend hours rgler my sound, the choice of him even impossible EST
    At quality price ratio, I am more quenthousiaste as this costs less than 1000 head in France when I pay mtait rsign skin c.. to an Ampeg, or cowardice in Germany
    For now I would do this choice, unless jai a roadie and the budget to pay me a true all-tube SVT and 8x10 fridge that goes with
    Overall rating: 9 / 10

    The EVO series amp are short I believe for evolution if I'm not mistaken. This is the 300 watt version. You get the same great tone and features as you would the 500 or the 900 watt versions, but just a more manageable power.

    This head is a whopping 300 watts of extreme low end power. This bass amp is one of the best sounding and most versatile units on the market today. This head can cover a ton of ground with the available tones in this head. You get enough power to play and stage in any area or club in the world.

    SOUNDS

    This is one amazing sounding and competitively priced amplifier. The controls are a little confusing at first but after a few minutes you get the idea of how they constructed the unit.

    This amp can be a bit unusual at first. The sub controls are a little tricky. These are the controls under the basic EQ up top. I am referring to the drive, compression, and sub harmonics. Using these sparingly and wide open will give you an assortment of optional tones and various control over how the bass EQ gets thick or thinner or more distorted. You can really dial in overall tone that will better match your bass guitar and or the pickups that you are using.

    OVERALL OPINION

    These amps are harder to find now that they have the EVo 300 lll out on the market. You can keep an eye out on the classifieds and see if you pops up. I think that you could find one for around $500 give or take.

    This amp is much better that say a Gallien-Krueger or Hartke. This amp has a round tone that will fit in a metal band and a pop bubble gum band. The versatility is pretty much endless when it comes to fitting this amp in any band setting. I would recommend this amp to anyone searching for a great sounding bass amp that will fit any need you may have.
