The Ashdown Rootmaster EVO 500W 2 x 10 Bass Amplifier Combo is a one-stop powerhouse for bassists who simply want to rock up to a venue with their bass guitar and amp. Boasting a sumptuous, full-bodied tonal offering that is reinforced with built-in footswitchable Drive and Sub Harmonic options, a masterful 5-band EQ and extensive connectivity options. If you want fuss-free power in an easy to transport package, it doesn't get much better than this.

Raw Ashdown power

As the bigger brother to the C-112T, the C210T boasts the same incomparable Rootmaster EVO series' preamp, which produces a rapturous output that accommodates both active and passive-powered pickup setups. However, as the name indicates, this model is home to a pair of 2 x 10-inch White Line speakers that offer a delightfully smooth response. Should the gig demand it, the additional 8-Ohm extension cabinet output allows you to beef up your output further.

Intuitive front panel control layout

Across the front panel, you have a selection of controls that allow you to shape your tone with ease. The top row carries the impressive 5-band EQ section. Intricate signal manipulation is simplified thanks to the excellently calibrated controls. No matter where you're performing, what bass you're playing or playing with, you can use the EQ section to ensure your tone shines through clearly.

The all-new compressor design allows you to attenuate the signal from a tight and clipped response - emphasising each and every note with precision - to a huge, rounded sound with lots of bounce and width. If you're looking to inject a little tube-emulated overdrive into the signal, the Drive control allows you to dial the amount to your heart's content, ranging from subtle sizzle to harsh crackle. Whatever style of music you play you can find a level of overdrive to suit you.

The Sub harmonics section produces sub harmonics an octave below played notes, which can be mixed with the level control of the amp for your perfect blend. The benefit of this is to thicken up your sound and create a fuller-sounding output.


Across the front panel you'll find the Active and Passive instrument inputs. Across the rear panel there are a range of connectivity options for you to play take advantage of, including: Speakon connections, DI Out, FX Loop (Send/Return), FS-2 Out, and Line In.

The FX Loop Send and Return connections allow you to set up external effects pedals free from the pre- and post-amp stages to give you greater control. The D.I. XLR output delivers a balanced signal, perfect if you want to send a feed straight into a mixing desk for recording or monitor mix during a gig. Not only that but a unique Speakon speaker output jack allows you to connect into a live PA desk where an XLR jack isn't available so that all bases are covered. The FS-2 output allows you to manipulate the Drive and Sub Harmonic effects via an external footswitch.

Durable cabinet design

Thanks to its compact form, the output from the Rootmaster EVO 500W 2 x 10 packs a weighty punch. The cabinet is built using lightweight ply, which makes it significantly easier to transport - aided by a pair of carrying handles on either side. However, thanks to Ashdown's ingenuity, tonal consistency and output power remains uncompromised. The exterior is wrapped in Buffalo tolex for added resistance to wear and tear, with a black grille offering a stylish (as well as protective) finish.
