Ashdown Rootmaster EVO range remains true to its predecessor, by delivering workhorse reliability and great tone at an affordable price, however the second evolution of the Rootmaster range has resulted in a focused range of lightweight bass amplifier heads, cabs and combos that offer improved features and finish, coupled with a dramatic reduction in weight.
The Rootmaster’s pre amp now 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 of the Rootmaster 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 subharmonic controls add further fatness to your tone - both can be foot-switched via an FS 2 footswitch (sold separately). The new Rootmaster EVO range features an upgraded power section plus a handy mute button.

The new Rootmaster EVO combos have been made from ply to cut down on weight by 12kgs (26lbs) without risk to the signature Ashdown sound. The new combos employ the NEW Ashdown White Line speakers for a refined tone. All combos can be expanded with the addition of an 8 ohm extension cabinet output to produce full power - making the new Rootmaster EVO range one of the most versatile systems available in the market today.
