The all new Ashdown Five 15-BB amplifier head is a fully featured one stop solution for working bass players on the move, where tone, connectivity and power are of paramount importance. The Five 15-BB Head delivers a room filling 220 Watts of Ashdown bass tone. Other features include hi and low inputs and a Switchable drive control, plus a 3 band EQ, XLR DI out and headphone output, an FX Loop and an Aux in with mix control. The AppTek input means even the most discerning bass players will be inspired when practicing.

The new range of Ashdown All Access amplifiers all include AppTek sockets that connect the user’s smartphone or tablet to the amp, to further expand the available tones and FX as well as enabling players to record and practice using the fantastic array of free and purchasable apps which are available. The AppTek socket is not limited to certain devices and specific apps.  It’s a simple feature that allows the amp to be used as an interface for your apps and bass, by plugging the user’s bass in and connecting the supplied AppTek cable to the device and amp. The user will be able to use the on board FX on the device as well as amp simulations, which meaningless tonal possibilities are available at your beckoned call.

Using the ABM Pre App available on Agile Partners Amp Kit the user is able to use the incredible features  found in the formidable ABM range, including Sub Harmonics, Tube Drive, Compression and the comprehensive 7 Band EQ, thus making these practice amps by far the most feature laden bass amplification product available.
