We've always been committed to great practise amps, but with AAA we've taken the concept to a whole new level.
AAA are a new generation of Ashdown amps that will take today's players from the bedroom to the stage, with great tone and powerful features like our AppTek connection for integration with the latest smartphone and tablet-based amp sims and effects.
Meet the Big Boy
For bass players who need a solid, affordable amp for practice, rehearsals and gigging, the Five 15 BB (or Big Boy as we like to call it) delivers big on features and tone, drawing inspiration from our flagship ABM amps and adding a few surprises.
With a 220W power section driving a single 15” Ashdown speaker, the Five 15 BB doesn't pull it's punches. This model comes fitted as standard with casters for easier transporation.
Classic Ashdown tone
AAA amps are voiced with the soul of legendary Ashdown tone, as heard on countless recordings and in packed venues every night.
High and Low Impedance inputs means they're ready for active or passive basses and power EQ is designed to get the most out every instrument.
Our tube emulated drive control lets you take your core tone tone from warm and clean through to fat musical distortion at the turn of a knob.
App-Tek – a world of tone at your fingertips
Via the App-Tek socket players can access the ever-growing range of amp sim and effects apps available on Smartphones and devices, unlocking a huge expanding range of sounds. Plugging your bass in to the amp and making a simple connection to your device via the supplied App-Tek cable is all you'll need to do to get started. Choose from effects apps to recording apps and even our very own ABM Pre App....
Bring ABM muscle direct to your AAA
Connect your device via App-Tek (using the supplied 4 pole mini jack cable) and use the ABM Pre App available on Agile Partners Amp Kit and you've got legendary ABM tone and flexibility dialled straight into your MiBass and ready to record or send straight to the PA. Enjoy Sub Harmonic Tube Drive, professional Compression and the ABM 7-Band EQ and transform this small grey box into a fully-loaded pro rig.
Just because an amp is affordable doesn't mean you have to compromise of connectivity. AAA amps feature Line In for connecting an mp3 player, headphone connection (with speaker mute switch) for silent practice and a great sounding DI for recording or sending your tone direct to a mixer.
The Five 15 BB also features a transparent effects loop for use with your favourite pedals or multi effects and extension speaker out.
Built for the journey
Tough cabinets, quality coverings, metal corners and quality components – because we know the journey from the bedroom to the club can be a tough one and you need gear that won't let you down.
We Welcome Part Exchange
We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.
How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.
You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
