Any bassist who has played one of Ashdown's fine creations, will already be intimately acquainted with the superb craftsmanship and expertise that goes into their sublime amps. The new Five - 15 bass combo with AppTek furthers their outstanding reputation by delivering yet another awesome amplifier that is guaranteed to get you up and rocking out.

Ashdown have created the Five - 15 as a one-stop workhorse for professional bassists who demand the highest quality tones, connectivity options and power. Part of their new All Access amplifier range, this beast produces 125 watts of pure Ashdown excellence, throbbing through the Custom Ashdown 15" speaker with absolute precision.

Connect via your tablet or smartphone using the AppTek feature, which enables you to expand your amp for use with the provided cable and your Agile Partners Amp Kit App. The App features the Ashdown ABM 900 and ABM 810 cab, which can be used with your amp utilizing the features of the ABM including SUB Harmonics, Valve Drive, Compression and EQ. The AppTek socket is not limited to certain devices and specific apps, so you can use the onboard FX as well amp simulations, giving you a whole universe of options to explore!

Knowing that it's likely you'll have a selection of basses to choose from whilst your performing, fitted with different pickups that require increased headroom or a signal boost; Ashdown have designed the Five - 15 with two inputs options - high and low impedance. By selecting the high impedance input, you are given sufficient headroom to allow active basses to be used to their full potential. So if for example, you're a metaller and rocker who have a roaring pair of active EMG humbuckers in their bass, this is for you. The low impedance input perfectly matches the impedance on a passive bass. The variable input gain control, can then be adjusted to perfectly match the requirements of your bass, perfectly catering to your specific needs so that your tone cruises every time.

If you're looking for a sweet tube amp sound, then the Drive control is on hand to inject a delightful tube-emulated overdrive into the signal, giving that awesome overdriven valve sound. This can be used to create a slight touch of grit or full on overdriven madness.

The passive EQ section is great for sculpting your signal based on your bass, tonal preferences, environment and whom you're playing with. Sweep out the middle for a fat tone with plenty of brightness; drop out the low end for a snappy response; or drop out the higher frequencies for a fat, muddy rumble.

The D.I. XLR output delivers a balanced output, perfect if you want to send a feed straight into a mixing desk for recording, or a live sound desk during a gig.

For those times when you still want to practise but don't want to disturb anyone else, simply plug directly into the headphone socket, allowing you to play into the wee hours and nobody will know any different, without having to sacrifice any tonal quality.

The Ashdown Five - 15 is a 125W combo designed to give you a hassle-free powerhouse that can be relied upon to keep you rocking all night, every night. Simply roll up to a gig, plug in and you're done. Make the most of this beauty by connecting to the AppTek universe and you'll never be bored again. Just make sure to remember that with great power, comes great responsibility.
