Ashdown Announce CTM-15 Valve Desktop Bass Amp

Ashdown are proud to announce the NEW Ashdown CTM-15 all valve desktop bass amp.

The re-introduction of a classic Ashdown Tube Magnifier, the low wattage powerhouse that is the CTM-15. 15 Watts of beautifully rich valve tone in a tiny package, now with built in load and headphone output for silent use. With the on-board Line Level Di this makes the CTM-15 a perfect studio companion.

Plug in and lay down a few bass lines through the Ashdown CTM-15 tube amp, and you won’t be the first to wonder “Wow, is that really only 15 watts?”. The CTM-15 delivers deceptively large tones from its dual EL84 power stage, and it’s low wattage means it’s easier to get red-blooded overdrive by driving it hard – all without shaking the foundations.

Whether the session needs big fat clean tones or growling, overdriven bass, the CTM-15 will have you covered.

Like all similarly equipped Ashdown’s, the CTM-15’s analogue VU meter isn’t just there for show. Giving an instant accurate display of your power amp’s output the CTM-15’s VU meter lets you quickly find your amp’s sweet spot – where the magic really happens.

With 4 and 8 ohm speaker outputs, the CTM-15 is ready to plug into your bass cab and rock. The CTM-15 also comes with a custom fit gig bag, making it easy to transport safely to every session.

The CTM-15 will be shipping via a dealer near you September 2023. Affordably priced and engineered to last a lifetime, responsibly designed to be repairable down to a component level for the next 25 years.
