The Ashdown CTM range combines classic tube power and tone with Ashdown’s innovative design, build quality and reliability. The CTM range has become a firm favourite with some of the biggest names in rock including Nate Mendel (Foo Fighters), James Johnson (Biffy Clyro) and James LoMenzo.
To celebrate our 20th Anniversary we’ve produced a very special Limited Edition 20th Anniversary CTM-30 Head with comes beautifully wrapped in Tweed covering. To partner with this, we’re also offering a single 12-inch speaker cabinet in matching Tweed.
Hand built in Ashdown’s UK Custom Shop, the CTM-30 takes inspiration from the classic tube heads of the past. The 30-watt CTM-30 brings classic all-tube tone in a compact and more portable head, ideally suited to studio recording and smaller gigs
Ashdown’s CTM-30 head has a 30-watt EL84 power section and features with hi and low inputs for use with active or passive basses. The amp combines the traditional ‘Bass, Middle and Treble’ EQ with the additional flexibility of ‘Mid Shift’, ‘Bass Shift’ and ‘Bright’ switching, which unlocks a wide range of classic and contemporary all-tube tone from its ECC83 and ECC82 preamp tubes.
With a modest 30-watt output rating, we've included a balanced DI - perfect for studio recording or for larger gigs where you need to get pure DI signal to the desk with a minimum of hassle.
Ashdown’s Limited Edition 20th Anniversary CTM-30-Tweed Head and 112T-250-Tweed Cab are each hand made/ hand wired in England. Available in limited numbers, the 20th Anniversary models will run until the end of 2017.
Each Ashdown’s 20th anniversary CTM-30 comes tested with a hand signed label by Ashdown Founder and Managing Director, Mark Gooday.
