Built by hand at the UK Ashdown Custom Shop the beautifully-engineered LB-30 Drophead 15H takes an old school all tube 30 watt head and builds it into a retro 1x15" + HF horn cabinet with a stainless steel top. When you're ready to play, simply un-clip the top, flip the amp head into position, clip it back down, plug in and bathe in glorius real bass tone. Rated at 30-Watts the Drophead 30 won't rip your head off and is perfect for studio/home use, however its EL84-equipped power section and balanced DI mean its also more than capable enough for small gigs. And, of course, it won't put your back out on the way.

The Drophead 30 preamp stage employs ECC83 and ECC82 tubes and features High and Low gain inputs, front panel-mounted Effects Send and Return, rotary Bass, Middle and Treble controls with Mid Shift, Bass Shift and Bright switching, Mute switch, rotary Volume control and balanced DI output.

From its custom covering, fixtures and components to its vintage red grille cloth, bass combos don't come much cooler than this.
