Returns Policy



The Ashdown CTM 30 Little Stubby Portable Bass Guitar Amplifier Head takes the revered Classic Tube Magnifier (CTM) range to new dimensions. Some of the biggest names in the business favour Ashdown's CTM models, including Foo Fighters' Nate Mendel and Biffy Clyro's James Johnson to name just a couple. Once you have a bash on the Ashdown CTM 30 'Little Stubby', you'll instantly understand why.

Tiny form, huge power

What the Ashdown CTM-30 lacks in size, it makes up for in power. For such a diminutive unit it boasts classic all-tube tone that any bassist would be proud of. The 30-watt EL84 tube-driven power section features a single instrument input with a switchable hi and low input sensitivity. Therefore, you can adjust the amp to work best with either active- or passive-powered pickups, depending on what your bass is equipped with. The CTM-30 loves to be driven, and don't let the low-wattage fool you, this just means that you can drive those tubes into warm saturation with minimal effort.

Tone shaping mastery

Across the front panel display you'll find a selection of retro-styled knobs that allow you to shape your tone effortlessly. There are traditional three-band EQ controls with options for Bass, Middle, and Treble. You'll also find familiar Volume, Drive and Feedback controls that allow you to push the ECC81/ECC82/ECC83 preamp tubes into overdriven bliss. Wherever the gig, whatever the environment, and whatever style of music that you play, the CTM-30 is ready and willing to have your back. The classic VU meter provides a stylish visual display that tells you when you're pushing headlong into the red.

Gig-ready connectivity

The Ashdown CTM-30 Little Stubby features a balanced DI output, which is great for laying down tracks in the studio, and ideal for larger gig where you want to output directly to the front-of-house desk without any fuss. There are a pair of 1/4-inch jack that offer flexible speaker cab connectivity options at 4-Ohm minimum or 8-Ohm. If you want to incorporate outboard effects or processors, the effects loop send and return jacks on the front panel have you covered.

Tour-ready durability

The Ashdown CTM-30 Little Stubby Portable Bass Guitar Amplifier Head is built like a tank, and ready for anything that comes its way. Small enough to slot discreetly into any rig, you'll wonder how you ever got by without one in your arsenal.
