The Ashdown OriginAL-500H is the same size as the bestselling OriginAL 300 watt head, but the power output has been increased to a truly trouser-flapping 500 watts for those who crave headroom when playing on larger stages.

This lightweight, portable and stripped-back bass amp head provides Ashdown tone in a gig ready, highly versatile yet affordable package.

Perfect for the bassist who wants the convenience of a highly portable bass amp with straightforward but powerful tonal control. At less than 7 lb (2.5kg), the OriginAL-500H makes transportation a breeze.

And dialing in your tone is even easier. The 5-band EQ boasts intuitive control for bass, middle, and treble, as well as hi- and lo-mid knobs allowing you to dial in your perfect bass tone in seconds.

The front-facing effects loop and XLR DI output are another tip of the hat to modern conveniences.

With its ample power, great sound, tiny footprint and player-friendly features, the Ashdown OriginAL-500H head is well worth your attention.
