Big bass tone with a punchy 1x12 speaker, all in a lightweight package.

The Ashdown Rootmaster EVO C112T 500 is a powerful 500W combo loaded with a single Ashdown White Line 12 in. speaker. Like other combos in the Ashdown Rootmaster line up, the C112T 500 offers improved features and finish, coupled with a dramatic reduction in weight.

Rootmaster EVO combos are made from lightweight ply to cut down on weight without risk to the signature Ashdown sound. Rootmaster EVO Combos employ the Ashdown White Line speakers for a refined tone and can be extended with the addition of an 8 ohm extension cabinet output to produce full power, making a truly versatile system.

It features a top-mounted bar handle for ease of transport and finished in Buffalo Tolex with a Black cloth grill. These combos have a distinctive look and quality finish that truly stand out from the crowd.

Tonally, the compact design maintains the low-end response with a more dynamic mid range. The addition of the tweeter provides extra high end and can be adjusted either to either hi, low or off depending on the player’s preference.

The Rootmaster EVO series’ pre-amp includes a passive and active input jack socket for use with high- and low-output instruments. This sets a clear signal path to the input control, enabling you to fine tune your input level using the trademark Ashdown VU meter. With the signal at its optimal level, you then hit the rich features designed enhance your tone, such as the shape button, 5-band EQ and on-board compressor. The drive control, as always delivers a delectable valve emulated over-drive, whilst the sub harmonic controls add further fatness to your tone—both can be foot-switched via an FS 2 footswitch (sold separately).

Rootmaster EVO combos also feature an upgraded power section plus a handy mute button. What’s even cooler is when switched to mute, the trademark Ashdown Engineering VU meter changes from orange to cool blue, creating the perfect on stage mood lighting between sets.

Simple, Powerful EQ
The Rootmaster EVO series’ preamp includes a passive and active input jack socket for use with high- and low-output instruments. The 5-band rotary tone controls act with surgical precision to provide total control over your sound, while a shape switch instantly dials you in to a classic Ashdown tone setting, straight from the world-famous ABM.

One-Knob Compression
Instantly adding warmth and body to your tone, this simple to use, great sounding compressor delivers a powerful, even sound to make sure your bass will fill out any mix.

Footswitchable Variable Overdrive
With footswitchable flexibility, our tube-emulated overdrive can take your core bass sound and push it into warm overdrive through to distorted filth whenever you need to add extra grind and girth to your tone.

Kick it Down
Bringing extra depth and definition to your bass parts, the Sub-Harmonic Generator lets you dial in a sub-octave and kick it in via footswitch whenever you need the extra depth for those super-heavy Godzilla moments.

Totally Connected
If you want to use your favorite pedals or multi-effects, you’ll find send and return sockets on the back panel, along with a DI output for direct injection into the PA mixer or recording console and a Line Input (with front panel level control) so you can jam along with a backing track in rehearsal.
