    Electric Blue loads legendary Ashdown tone into an affordable high-performance, high-value combo.

    The Electric Blue EVO II 1x12 Bass Combo uses a 180-watt RMS fan-cooled fast-transient power stage. It features a fully-featured bass preamplifier with inputs for both active and passive instruments, an illuminated VU meter; 5-band EQ with Bright and Deep switches; a front panel-mounted balanced DI output for connection to a PA or recording console; an FX loop; a tuner/line output; and the classic Ashdown sub-harmonic generator.

    Consistent with its EVO II status, this combo also includes a built-in compressor to provide an exceptional level of sonic control for a bass amp of this size and cost.

    A high-performance Ashdown bass driver ensures exceptional attack, clarity, and low-end performance, while an extension speaker output can be used to connect an additional cabinet for use in larger venues. The cabinet is finished in a tough, retro-style vinyl covering.

    Amazing amp!!

    By 384700151

    from Fort Worth, TX

    Comments about Ashdown EB 12-180 EVO II 180W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

    This little amp is awesome! Bought for a small venue gig and was surprised at the room filling sound that this amp produces. Was plenty loud for my gig, but be warned, if you happen to play with a drummer that does not have a drum shield....or a volume control, you will want to run out of the DI and go into a house system, or come out of the back into an extention cab for some extra sound.
    The built in compressor works just as it should. Allows me to not play as hard and still be heard. Also, keeps the 1x12 speaker safe from my sudden slap breaks.

    All in all I think this is a great amp in a very compact package. Great quality all around. Will be using this more in my normal, every week gigs.

    Thanks Ashdown for making yet another great product!

    Nice Amp

    By Flipper333

    from Atlanta

    Comments about Ashdown EB 12-180 EVO II 180W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

    This is a solid combo amp with flexible controls. You can make it sound bright and crisp or smooth and mello and anything in between. I use it with my Fender Jazz Bass. Works great in small to medium venues. Good tone at low volume for practice.
