Exactly the same as the Ashdown ABM of the same power. What to remember: a combo that has a lot of potatoes, very friendly, lots of opportunity and look good rock'n'roll.

UTILIZATION

Simple the ranks of each knob and fader configuration noted above.
It is one of those amps or actually "some of the setting" the sound is good. The buttons serve only to give the color you search even if ampegisante trend is noted.

Integrated DI not terrible, I opted for a passive Radial I plug in the effects loop for the coloration of the preamp.

SOUNDS

For all styles! I especially think it's the musician and the instrument will or will not be able to adapt to a style that amp.

I use a Musicman Stingray 3 eq and sometimes with a precision "vintage" (lag) that I totally changed (new electronics, micro Bar Knuckle)

Never use the octave (sub harmonic on the amp) is really disgusting! For the rest it is very versatile, the compressor helps a lot!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years and I am delighted. Too bad it costs so expensive (I got it for a very good price in fact) because in reality the ABM version is exactly the same (apart from HP) so for the price difference I'd rather take the ABM.

The pros:
- Preamp tube
- Compressor
- 7-band eq

the -:
- Weak enough
- Very very expensive (between 1800 and 2500 €)
