An evolutionary step forwards from the classic LB 30/CTM 30 the Little Stubby pushes the rules of valve amplification design to the limits in a never before seen highly compact package that breaks away from the traditionally unwieldy amplifiers of years gone by.

Producing 30 watts of inspirational all valve bass tone from 4 x EL84 output valves the Little Stubby is all about purity of tone combined with real world versatility. The input gain and master volume allow for deep clean tones through to hugely overdriven contemporary tones and all points in between.

However the heart of this amp is the unique Feedback control which allows the complete character of the amp to be changed and fine tuned from old school vintage valve amp tones at one end through to tighter more mid heavy modern tones at the other. This combined with the well considered three band EQ gives almost limitless tonal variations. FX send and return continue the sonic purity and allow the players favourite modulation/time based effects to be sent straight into the power amp.



The Ashdown CTM-112T Tweed delivers a powerful 250 watts at 8 ohms through its single White Line Ashdown 12" speaker, designed for exceptional attack, clarity, and low-end performance. Its distinctive high-quality Tweed finish sets it apart from the crowd.
In terms of tone, this compact design maintains a strong low-end response with a punchy mid-range. The three-way tweeter switch allows you to adjust the high-end to your preference - hi, low, or off. Whether you use it alone or in a pair, the CTM-112T is ready to elevate your sound.
