combining classic tube and solid state tone
with Ashdown innovations.
300 Watt All Tube Bass Amp Head - Handbuilt in UK Custom Shop
Taking inspiration from the classic tube heads of the past, Ashdown presents the all-tube CTM-300, a 300W valve masterpiece that melds classic tones with modern features, construction and reliability.
Built tough for life on the road
Handbuilt in the UK Ashdown Custom Shop the CTM 300 head is housed within an 18mm Marine grade birch ply cabinet that features heavy duty flip style handles and an internal fan to keep things cool. This is an amplifier that is built to last using only the finest components to ensure years of trouble-free performance night after night.
Standard tone controls give you a wide range of uber-musical sounds, while Deep, Mid Shift, and Bright switches let you fine-tune your tone to the situation. The EQ section is a passive tone circuit - meaning if all controls are at zero there will be no sound through the amp. All the controls are highly interactive, giving you the possibility to dial in exactly what tone you want. Don’t be scared to dial the pots all the way to get the most from the controls.
Similarly, the front-mounted effects loop is also tube-driven for maximum tonal preservation.
