Ashdown CTM-100
All lamps 100Watts
For 3 months now I am the proud owner of this head. What actually say: 5 lamps preamp (do not know the brand and 2 KT 88 power (unlike 6650 announced in the catalog) Each knob has a boost (mellow for gain, deep bass for, shift. to the middle, bright treble for) so that the head is not very "plug and play". Casually, the boost and the knobs are very efficaces.Le bias is adjustable with the V-meter on . the front But small problem trimming the knobs are on the back side of a send -. return and full adjustable DI pre-post the front panel.
For sound, you get a little meadows that we want with the settings. In my opinion this is pretty close to the head and another Hiwatt Marshall. power is more than sufficient in all circumstances. Eg. on a stage of 100 m ° with a sound 20kgs, almost no need in low returns (2-12 Baffle New FMC 103 db rendemen) t. The weight 19kgs is not rhédibitoire. Well it is not my TTE 500 and 6kgs. Disappointment, 3 outputs 8.4 and 2 ohms jack only. The pub Thomann claims speakon. Well it's no big deal. Price € 1150 is very correct if the concurrency and manufacturing seems correct solid and neat one zieuter.

UTILIZATION

Oi configuration is quite simple, almost not need the manual, and the sound is still very bon.Au sound level it is close enough to the Marshall VBA 400 I had too.

SOUNDS

The sound tends to be greasy ^ in all circumstances. I play with a Gison SG bass and Lower Mustang micro S.Duncan. I love Old School sounds good grassses typeannés 70-80.J uses it from time to time a Tech 21 VT Bass to boost the sound during a solo.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 months. Excellent value for money and perfect finish. If it was not the weight and the two handles at the top, not very practical for n portage solo (Same for the Flight would have been my ultimate head And I added Made in UK.
