The Ashdown AAA EVO 60W 1 x 10 Bass Amplifier Combo is a versatile amp for practising with and small gigs, but boasts a speaker cabinet extension output to turn it into a worthy live rig for larger gigs and performances. Whether you're just starting out or are a seasoned pro, the AAA EVO 60-10T is an affordable workhorse that punches well above its weight.
Front panel controls
To make things nice and simple, the front panel layout is home to everything that need to sculpt and shape your tone. There are High and Low instrument inputs, which means that whether your bass is equipped with active and passive electronics, the amp will readily accommodate it. The accompanying Input knob allows you to attenuate the incoming signal level of your bass.
Moving along, you'll find the Drive knob, which enables you to infuse your output with a tube-emulated overdrive. Take your tone from subtle and gritty to rumbling, thundering overdrive. The built-in passive EQ allows you to attenuate Bass, Middle and Treble tone controls. Whether you want a tighter response without the Mids, greater emphasis on the low-end, or increased articulation across the highs, you can quickly and easily carve out the tone you desire.
Alongside the High and Low inputs, you'll find the APPTEK socket, which allows you to connect your iPhone or iPad to the AAA EVO 60-10T and utilise Ashdown's ABM Pre App. Unlock features from the ABM range including Sub Harmonics, Tube Drive, Compression, and a comprehensive 7-band EQ. Turn your diminuitive practise amp into a tonal behemoth!
For silent practise, simply plug in a pair of stereo headphone and activate the Speaker Mute switch on the rear of the amp. If you want to get an external audio device involved to jam along to your favourite tracks, or simply practise your chops for the gig, then the Line In jack has you covered. The Aux Mix knob lets you set the level of your backing track, so you can perform in perfect harmony with your favourite pieces of music.
Rugged build quality
As we've come to expect from the team at Ashdown, the cabinet is built to take whatever is thrown at it. Utilising lightweight ply for the enclosure, the amp is easy to manoeuvre and with a heavy-duty carrying handle on top, can be transported from home to rehearsal space to gig venue with minimum effort. Premium buffalo Tolex adds durability to the outer casing. Paired with a distinctive red grill, the amp achieves a striking aesthetic.
