The crew at Ashdown have done it again, delivering a superb range of bass amp head and combos that will blow you away with their tonal versatility, rugged design and incredible raw power! Ashdown spent a considerable length of time consulting with professional musicians to perfect these models, and you can rest assured that whatever style of music you play, the new Rootmaster Mag range has something to meet everyone's demands.

The Rootmaster Mag C115-420 bass amplifier combo has everything a gigging professional needs in a neat single unit that is as strong as an ox, looks absolutely gorgeous, packs an unbelievable amount of power and weighs it a very impressive 22kg. It is quite simply the total package!

The front panel control selection makes sculpting your tone very easy indeed. The highly impressive and masterfully calibrated 5-band EQ section allows you to shape your tone to suit the bass guitar you're playing, the environment you're playing in and allows you to fit perfectly alongside the other musicians you're playing with in the mix. The level of tonal control is astounding for a unit so affordable.

The all-new compressor design allows you to get easily attain a tightly clipped and snappy focused response, or a thick and wavy saturated rumble with tonnes of warmth. The Drive control gives a sweetly overdriven tube-emulated sizzle that can inject a little grit into your signal or full on hot overdrive. No matter what style of music you play from dirty hard rock to smooth blues and even delicate jazz, you can easily find your sound with the C115-420.

At the heart of this beauty is a Custom Ashdown 15" speaker, which carries of the tonal projection with poise and articulation. Every note will ring out as truly as you could hope for and as you'd expect from a prestigious company such as Ashdown, it will keep going on and on and on. You'll have crossed oceans before it lets you down.

The FS-2 output allows you to control the Drive and Sub Harmonic effects via an external footswitch, giving you greater freedom in how you control the amp effects. The newly designed Class-D power section runs highly efficiently, which also contributes to the lower weight of the overall head and allows it run cool in any environment.

The rear panel is home to the FX Loop Send and Return connections, allowing you to set up external effects pedals free from the pre and post amp stages to give you greater control over the exact effects you want to use. 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 a live sound desk during a gig. Not only that but a unique Speak On 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 Ashdown Rootmaster Mag C115-420 is what every working bassist could desire. It will faithfully stand up to whatever you can throw at it, do the job with the utmost grace and keep coming back for more. At this price you can't argue with that!
