A 600W head with improved features and excellent Ashdown craftsmanship.
After four years of the current MAG line Ashdown decided they needed a little bit of an update with the addition of an Overdrive control, which can be easily dialed in on the front of the amp and also foot switched in and out using a standard single latching footswitch.
The MAG 600H head features a potent new fan-cooled 600 watts RMS power section. Rotary bass, middle and treble controls are supplemented by smaller rotary controls providing 15dB of cut and boost at 220Hz and 1.6kHz, providing a comprehensive 5 band EQ section. Additionally, front panel push switches for Bright and Deep settings provide instant access to attacking and warm, rounded sounds respectively and, on the subject of low-end response, the trademark Ashdown sub-harmonic generator is ready and able to deliver truck loads of earth moving tone if called upon. Inputs are provided for active and passive instruments and the front panel also features an effects send and return, a tuner/line output and a balanced DI output for direct connection to a mixing console.
With the MAGs now achieving EVO III status, the amplifier also includes a built-in compressor with precision sonic control.
