Price or Trade Value : £150

Popular combo with warm tone and lots of power. Now out of production.

Lives in Haslemere, Surrey. Collection preferred due to weight. Courier possible at cost.

Also travel along M1 and M40 regularly so may be able to deliver.

Excellent condition, its had an easy life. Though never sure about the accuracy of the VU meter, as on all my past Ashdown gear it seems more for decoration. Even the manual says 'gives an indication'.

Comes with manual.

Can't upload picture, but easy to find on Google with full specs.

Details from Andertons website, which is where I purchased it new:
The discerning bass player gets high and low gain inputs, front panel-mounted FX send and return, rotary bass, middle and treble controls with mid shift, bass shift and bright switching, mute switch, rotary gain and master volume controls and a DI output.
Retro cabinet styling features vinyl covering, chrome protective corners, vintage red grille cloth and, of course, the trademark illuminated Ashdown VU meter.

These are great amps, I bought the 330 combo last year and have been using it for every gig we've done since! My other Ashdown amps seem to use the VU meter as a measure of input level, my touring combo appears to indicate output, which is less useful. Sounds great though!
Bass player for The Wirebirds, The Bob Bowles Band, and Cartoon Heroes.

Things with strings: Two Fender US standard Precisions, Fender US Standard Jazz, Fender standard Precision, Fender 60s Classic Jazz
Noisy stuff: Ashdown ABM 500 Evo II, Barefaced Super Twin (serial #001), Ashdown EB 180, Ashdown Touring 330 115H combo

Keeping it live, keeping it real.

The Wirebirds
