PiBass - 240 240 watt Bass Amp designed for Wojtek Pilichowski

Designed in conjunction with bass maestro Wojtek Pilichowski, the Pi-Bass 240 is an outstanding digital bass amp, delivering compact lightweight power and advanced tone-shaping at an ultra-affordable price.

Compact affordable power

Thanks to an innovative digital design, PiBass-240 packs 240W of glorious bass power into a box that weights just 1.5kg (3.3lbs) and is small enough to slip into the pocket of your gig bag. Despite its diminutive form, we haven't compromised on it's ability to deliver the fat low-end that Ashdown amps are renowned for – a sound that sets that standards amongst the lightweight competition.

Wojtek also specified a Ground Lift switch to eliminate problems with 'bad power' that can cause noise and other issues while playing live.


Powerful digital sound-shaping

Able to cover the widest range of styles, the powerful tone-shaping section leaves most compact amps in its dust, offering a truly flexible EQ able to nail any number of classic sounds and styles.

The four slider controls for Bass, Lo-Mid, High-Mid and Treble can be used to boost or cut each frequency range by up to 15dB. To the left of the Lo-Mid, High-Mid and Treble sliders are rotary controls marked FREQ-HZ. These are used to select the frequency at which the sliders boost or cut the signal.

The amp is set permanently in 'Bright' mode making it ideal for fast slap or rapid-fire percussive styles, but hitting the Bright switch will enable a warmer EQ shape with a richer, vintage flavour.

The powerful PiBass preamp features Input level switching to accommodate active or passive instruments.

Uncompromised connections

Bringing true flexibility to our most compact amp, we've also included a headphone output for silent practise and a professional DI output for connecting direct to a PA or recording setup.
