Here's what Ashdown says about the ABM-600 EVO-IV DUAL-VU-RACK:
Immediately identifiable on stages around the world thanks to it's glowing VU meter. Over the past 20 years the Ashdown ABM range has become the industry standard for bass players in pursuit of real bass tone, versatility, power and tour proven reliability.
Now in its fifth incarnation, ABM EVO IV pairs class-leading pre amp sophistication with up-rated powerhouse performance and an all-new 9-band EQ.
Lovingly built and engineered the ABM 600 Dual VU Rack head is made for the road. The 3U rack chassis is fabricated from 2mm mild steel, with front and rear mounts to ensure your head can easily be racked and protected when travelling. Dual VU Meters allow monitoring on the input gain as well as output level.
The ABM DUAL VU RACK EVO IV head teams the legendary ABM preamp with a gut-rumbling 600W power stage which will see you through any show when paired with the right cabinets.
Variable Valve Drive Plus – from zero to rock hero!
Our Variable Valve Drive preamp section has also been upgraded in EVO IV. Delivering more current to the 12AX7 tube enables more drive and harmonic content than ever before, enabling players to dial in a sound from pristine clean, to the fattest, fullest bass overdrive currently available. The Drive level can be preset and kicked in and out via footswitch, providing access to a huge range of clean, warm and overdriven tones.
The best EQ in the business, just got better!
Bassists plugging into EVO IV will be greeted straight away by the flickering of the new Input VU meter, allowing them to quickly find the sweet spot for their instrument. From there, EVO IV features a sophisticated 9-band EQ, with familiar Bass, Middle and Treble controls and six sliders providing precision cut and boost at 100Hz, 180Hz, 340Hz, 1.3KHz, 2.6KHz and 5KHz. The EQ can be switched in via footswitch taking the player from a flat fretless sound to their favourite EQ setting instantly. The NEW 9-band EQ is a revelation of sonic perfection and will surprise older ABM users.
One knob Compressor
Other ABM favourite features are retained in EVO IV, including Ashdown’s famous One Knob Dynamic Compressor sub octave note for huge bass tones. Kick it in and this simple to use, great sounding compressor delivers a powerful, even sound, guaranteed to help your bass fill out any mix.
Once heard – never forgotten. The ABM Sub-Harmonic generator adds an octave below the notes being played bringing fullness to any bass part. The Sub level is independently controllable, letting you dial in anything from a subtle hint of deep bass to a full-on subterranean funk.
Not that you'd expect any less, ABM is loaded with connectivity. A tuner output, Line out, transparent FX loop and a Line Input for the connection of an external sampler or sound source. Output muting cuts the signal from the DI output but leaves the tuner output 'live', allowing the player to tune up in silence.
Paired with our FS-4 footswitch (not included) the ABM comes alive for onstage use, enabling on-the-fly tonal gearshifts. With footswitchable Valve Drive, Compression, EQ and Sub Harmonic Generator, ABM puts dozens of sound combinations at your feet, without so much as an effect pedal in sight.
