Versatile, precise, and simple to operate.
Proudly built in the UK, the Classic Series is Ashdown's flagship bass amp range. This Klystron 500 Bass Head, like the rest of the Classics are about doing everything better ” more volume, more dynamics, an extended frequency range, and greater versatility.
The 575-Watt Klystron 500 head features a single input that is switchable for passive and active instruments with a blend of solid state and dual triode tube preamp stages. 3 straightforward rotary tone controls provide 20dB of cut and boost at 60Hz, 660Hz and 5kHz, and are supplemented by 2 pairs of additional sliders giving 15dB cut and boost at 180Hz, 340Hz, 1.3kHz and 2.6kHz. A built-in dual band compressor acts separately on the high and low frequency components of the signal to provide precise control, while the on-board sub-harmonic generator turns the Classic head into a powerhouse of tone.
The inclusion of a 4-way footswitch as standard makes every Ashdown Classic bass amplifier head among the most versatile live performance bass amps in the business, providing control over the compressor, sub-harmonic generator, tube grind and EQ pre-shape.
