Overview

For those playing larger stages seeking huge headroom, Ashdown tone and reliability in a lightweight platform, the RM-800 EVO II 800W bass amp head is the solution.

It weighs in at just 5.5 lb (2.6 kg), but boasts 800 watts of power and class-leading quality and features. The Rootmaster EVO II range also now comes equipped with an on-board headphone preamp to allow for silent practice, which doubles up these gig-ready amplifiers as handy practice devices.

The preamp includes a passive and active input jack socket for use with high and low output instruments, this sets a clear signal path to the input control enabling you to fine tune your input level using the trademark Ashdown VU meter. With the signal at its optimal level, you then hit the rich features designed enhance your tone, such as the shape button, 5-band EQ and on-board compressor. The drive control, as always delivers a delectable valve emulated over-drive, whilst the sub harmonic controls add further fatness to your tone - both can be foot-switched via an FS 2 footswitch (sold separately).

Rootmaster EVO II heads also features a handy mute button. What’s even cooler is when switched to mute, the trademark Ashdown Engineering VU meter changes from orange to cool blue – creating the perfect on-stage mood lighting between sets.

The Rootmaster 800 EVO II head features a distinctive clear anodized alloy housing and chassis, an all-new black anodized front panel and is the perfect choice for those who crave huge headroom in an ultra-lightweight and portable package.
