There are a few Ashdown combos and stacks that would fit the bill here and indeed their 2x10-inch version of this is exactly the same price but we have plumped for the 1x15 format due to that accepted all-round versatility and quality.
It's a British company of course so you tend to get more for your money and 575 watts says you do! The footswitchable EQ has three main controls but with two pairs of additional sliders for some fine tonal tuning.
The standard Ashdown amp section features a retro-style meter and the magic sub-harmonic octave generator. With the addition of an effects loop, DI and tuned birch-ply cabinet this combo offers great value and is a tough act to follow. A more than worthy winner!
