Proudly built in the UK, the Classic Series is Ashdown's flagship bass amp range. This Klystron 500 Bass Head, like the rest of the Classics are about doing everything mo' better ” more volume, more dynamics, an extended frequency range, and greater versatility.

The 575-Watt Klystron 500 head features a single input that is switchable for passive and active instruments with a blend of solid state and dual triode tube preamp stages. 3 straightforward rotary tone controls provide 20dB of cut and boost at 60Hz, 660Hz and 5kHz, and are supplemented by 2 pairs of additional sliders giving 15dB cut and boost at 180Hz, 340Hz, 1.3kHz and 2.6kHz. A built-in dual band compressor acts separately on the high and low frequency components of the signal to provide precise control, while the on-board sub-harmonic generator turns the Classic head into a powerhouse of tone. And it pumps all that tone through a earth-shaking 4x10 Cab.

This is a monster of a rig. It shows signs of use and love, including some small tears in the tolex but this does not detract at all from the looks and playability of this amp. It is fully read for stage or studio. Grab it up today and we'll ship it out to you the next day.
