Unlock a new realm of bass tone with the Ashdown LB 30 2.N. Bass Amplifier. This 30-Watt marvel beautifully blends the timeless warmth of valve amps with the precision of modern dynamic response technology, making it a must-have for today's bassists.
At its core, the LB 30 2.N. features an EL84-equipped power section, delivering a harmonious balance of power and portability. Ideal for small gigs, it won't overwhelm your audience with volume, and its ergonomic design ensures easy transportation. The preamp stage utilizes ECC83 and ECC82 tubes, offering both Active and Passive gain inputs, providing versatility to accommodate various bass guitars.
What sets this amplifier apart is the integration of Two notes Torpedo technology. Built on convolution techniques, it begins with precise measurements of actual cabinets and microphone setups, capturing a diverse range of tones, from the iconic ABM series to the specialized CL-310 cab designed for Guy Pratt. With six emulated cabinets to choose from (including options with horns/tweeters), you have access to ten distinct cabinet sounds via a user-friendly 6-way rotary knob.
The LB 30 2.N. is equipped with versatile inputs and outputs to cater to your every need. USB connectivity allows you to edit and update on-board IR cabinets, and the USB CHARGE socket conveniently charges your devices. A direct balanced Torpedo IR output ensures seamless integration with your studio interface or front-of-house system. MIDI in & Out ports enable control of your amp IR's and effects using a compatible MIDI foot-switch. With options for 4 and 8-ohm speakers, a direct DI output, a headphone out, and the Torpedo line in XLR, this amplifier covers all your connectivity requirements.

Two Notes Audio Engineering DynIR
From a 1952 Filmosound to the latest official Ashdown
Engineering® cabinet series, Two notes have always pushed the envelope to capture the full diversity of guitar and bass cabinets.
Impulse responses are everywhere, everyone makes them but
they all share the same problem... They are static. If you don't like the tone when using regular IRs, or want to tweak something, you have no option but to remove it and then load another.

To get a comprehensive selection of tonal options you have to have gigabytes of .wav files stored locally. Every time you want to change
something you have to trawl through a massive library to find 'the one'.
This means you invariably end up using the same few IRs over
and over and your mixes start to sound stale and predictable. Two notes have always viewed this as standing in the way of creativity. To challenge this disruption to the workflow, we created a more dynamic version of the IR.

Meet DynIR, available for use with your Torpedo Hardware and Software.
You’d need a library of 160k perfectly phase-aligned studio-grade IR files to replicate each Two notes Virtual Cabinet. The magic with DynIR is that you don’t see any of it, you just move the mic around the cabinet in real time and hear the changes, as they happen.

Real time mic placement:
You can place the mics wherever you want around any Virtual
Cabinet. It’s not only much easier than comparing hundreds of standard IR files separately, it allows you to monitor how your tone changes while you move each microphone with your finger.
Front or Back:
Nothing give more depth and power to your tone than blending in a mic placed round the back of a cab. The true essence of flawless tone comes from taking the front mic’s precision and clarity and adding the unique thump and thickness only the back of the cabinet provides.
Dual Micing:
Each DynIR Virtual Cabinet is packed with 8 microphones carefully picked to bring out the uniqueness and character of the captured cabinet. From industry-standard Dynamic microphones, to prestigious Condensers all the way to antique Ribbons, there’s a world of tones to explore within each DynIR Virtural Cabinet. With Dual-Micing, you’ll achive perfect tones quickly and effortlessly.
