It will own you!

By Slappy McHappyPants

I've always been a fan of Ashdown products. Since my first EV500 I knew that Ashdown was superior to many other amps on the market. Recently, I picked this little baby up and I am head over heels in love with it. It's a little pricey BUT if you can swing it and you want a warm, fat, growly, punchy tone; get this. You can play funk, metal, rock, country, jazz...etc. with this amp. I'm running mine through Epifani and Schroeder cabs and I couldn't ask for a better sound. I love this thing!
