For bassists who wish to cut the weight not the tone allow us to introduce the NEW Ashdown Studio Range.
Weighing in an astonishing 11.2kgs (24.6lbs) the Studio 15 is engineered from the ground up to be lightweight and portable whilst still delivering the heavyweight tone and versatility the world has come to expect from an Ashdown bass amplifier.
The incredibly stylish Studio 15 delivers 300 watts of premium Ashdown tone through a Custom lightweight 15″ NEO speaker. Potent yet portable the Studio 15 comes bursting with great features including foot switchable valve emulated overdrive, XLR DI, FX loop, headphone out, 5 band EQ, Line In and more.
A super lightweight, very loud and versatile combo suitable for not just practice and rehearsals but also small – medium gigs.
- Heavy duty tolex and chrome metal corners will keep the Studio 8 protected and looking stylish for years to come
- The Studio 15 has everything you need to establish great tone straight out of the box, with the EQ set at 12 O’clock the Studio Range sounds as you would expect from an Ashdown, warm yet articulate
