Digital power in a tiny package
The Ashdown PiBass-240 was originally designed for Wojtek Pilichowski, one of the worlds greatest bassists and as such, incorporates technology and components that make this a highly sought after amplifier by players all over the world. Small and lightweight in composure, the Ashdown PiBass-240 is capable of generating huge sound with outstanding precision.
The Ashdown PiBass-240 delivers all 240 Watts of its power via a single 8 ohm load enabling you to use it with a single cab and get the full force of all its power. The head is completely versatile and can be paired with a huge number of cabs depending on your personal taste.
The Ashdown PiBass-240 weighs in at only 1.5Kg (3.3 lbs) and as such, is capable of being transported in the front pocket of most gig bags. Its minuscule frame doesn't mean you miss out on any control as you get full customisation over low, mid and high frequencies. This is done with a level slider and frequency selection knob for each 'zone'. Around the back, there is a Ground Lift to eliminate any unwanted electrical hum. Although the PiBass 240 amp is always set to 'bright', it does also have a Bright switch which enhances the richness and the warmth of the overall tone. There are speakon and jack outputs as well as the DI XLR output.
The EQ can be easily switched on and off and there are additional controls for gain and master output. A blue-backlit screen indicates power status and also adds to the clean cosmetics of the Ashdown PiBass-240.
Finally, a headphone socket is supplied for silent practice whenever needed and it still delivers the great sound produced by this remarkable amp. If you need a compact head that still delivers plenty of welly, the Ashdown PiBass-240 is an excellent choice.
