Overview

Ashdown’s Classic Tube Magnifier range has been a long-time favorite of some of the biggest names in Bass, including Nate Mendel of the Foo Fighters, James Johnson of Biffy Clyro, James LoMenzo and Michael Rhodes.

The Ashdown CTM 30 "Little Stubby" pushes the rules of tube bass amplification to the limits in a never been seen before, neatly formed package of tube scrumptiousness.

For Ashdown, the CTM 30 Little Stubby marks the next developmental leap in their bass amplification bloodline. Improved tone, features, portability and control makes the Little Stubby a new icon in the tube bass amplification market.

Stubby, Stumpy, Small, Squat or whatever you wish to call it. Measuring just 15.74" (400mm) wide, 8.66" (220mm) deep and 3.15" (80mm) tall, the 30-watt CTM-30 Little Stubby brings a classic all-tube tone in a compact and more portable gig-ready head.

With an updated tube preamp and streamlined steel casing with tubes and transformers mounted horizontally for ease of transportation, the CTM Little Stubby is among the smallest, most portable tube amp in the world.

The Ashdown CTM-30 Little Stubby has an upgraded 30-watt EL84 driven power section and features a single instrument input with hi and low input sensitivity selector switch, for use with active or passive basses. The amp combines traditional 3-band rotary EQ control with a familiar volume, drive and feedback controls to accomplish a contemporary all-tube tone from its ECC81, ECC82 and ECC83 preamp tubes. It’s extremely easy to find the gain ‘sweet spot’ on the Little Stubby – producing a warm, full-bodied overdriven sound.

The CTM 30 Little Stubby features a balanced DI output, perfect for studio recording or for larger gigs where you need to get pure DI signal to the desk with a minimum hassle. If you want to use your favourite pedals or multi-effects, you’ll find some conveniently located send and return sockets on the front panel.

A duo of 1/4” Jack sockets provides flexible partnering options with a range of Ashdown speaker cabinets at 4-ohm (minimum) or 8-ohm.
