UTILIZATION

It uses the CHARACTERISTICS of the heads of so many series ABM rglages possible.
We must take a moment to take its brands to find the usefulness of each button.
No manual supplied but you can download on the website of the brand.
Conus connections are two connections Speakon / jack for speakers.

Most of this head is its look. A marvel, relatively compact and nitre seen that with the head s'alume trmousser made the hair in the slip.

Powerful enough for rpeter and concerts, not need to be bedded rooms for 200 people max.

APRS one year of use ... always satisfied with the quality of the head. All rglages conus are really good and can easily chopper sound sick.
BPS is a group of rooms, and many bass players who tell me that I have a great sound. The footswitch supplied with the compressor enables the Octaver, the drive and qualisation.

SOUNDS

I use it mainly for rock music. There that listen With or without you U2 to imagine the sound coming out of the head.
The valve drive and trs trs Intgr aprci. It provides a warm overdrive trs.
Another effect is the Intgr sub-harmonics, the balance of serious and more. It's great when simpa rises in the treble. No more screaming on the two lower strings Premire.
Snapping sound in his head round and fat that you offer all the sounds you need.

I confirm my APRS about a year. This head is very versatile and offers the quality of a head lamp.

OVERALL OPINION

For several months I use it. This head is truly a marvel. At each concert I was told that I have a bass sound sublime, the ing their hearts because it is also very easy transplanting (DI faade in, line out in back).
Ashdown is a little known brand but it does not continue with the stuff of this quality with prices much infrieurs concurence.
Ngatif point is the price, I ordered directly from England for 870 including shipping compared to 1500 in France. Unfortunately you have many t ask me to site I bought it and they offer the more I do not know why, but I think that digging a little we will not be around that price wrong .
APRS year I would do without this choice hsiter!
