Ashdown RM500C115 Rootmaster 500W bass guitar amp combo
This is the 500-watt bass guitar amp combo from Ashdown's Evolution series. This combo produces so much sub-low and punch, it'll make the glasses behind the bar vibrate. The Rootmaster is a manageable bass combo that's great for using on the road. It has a 5-band equalizer with adjustable 240 Hz and 1.5 kHz filters so the mids don't dominate and the low doesn't blubber.
Ashdown RM500C115 Rootmaster
When its sub-harmonic generator is activated, this 15-inch speaker will shake you to your very core. Use the drive knob to add extra gain, and to ensure that the compressor prevents unwanted peaks. Of course, this Ashdown RM500C115's built-in DI is also equipped with an FX loop so you can connect effects pedals behind the preamplifier. The line input is for allowing a drum machine with backing tracks, fore example, to play along. You can adjust the volume with the line mix knob on the front panel.
