The new OriginAL 500 is the same size as the best selling OriginAL 300 watt head but power has been increased to a truly trouser flapping 500 watts for those who crave headroom when playing on larger stages.
This lightweight, portable and stripped back bass amp head provides Ashdown tone in a gig ready, highly versatile yet affordable package.
Perfect for the bassist who wants the convenience of a highly portable bass amp with straightforward but powerful tonal control. At less than 2.5kg/7lbs the OriginAL-500H makes transportation a breeze. And then dialing in your tone is even easier. The 5-band EQ boasts intuitive control for bass, middle, and treble, as well as hi- and lo-mid knobs allowing you to dial in your perfect bass tone in seconds.
The front-facing effects loop and XLR DI output are another tip of the hat to modern conveniences.
With its ample power, great sound, tiny footprint and player-friendly features, the Ashdown OriginAL-500H head is well worth your attention.
A pair of 1/4" jack sockets with a minimum 4 ohm load means the OriginAL HD-1 can be used to power a single 8 ohm cabinet, a pair of 8 ohm cabinets or a single 4 ohm cabinet.
