We’ve come to expect great things from Ashdown Engineering, and in their own words, its latest bass amp is, “a ground-breaking innovation in the realm of bass amplifiers that redefines the standards of power, portability, and precision, offering musicians an unparalleled experience in amplification technology.”

The OriginAL-EVO-C112T is a tilt-back-style combo that’s rated at 300 watts and offers some pretty useful features. While tilting the combo backwards is designed to give you a subtly different delivery, there’s also a 5-band EQ and a Shape button for further tonal tweaking. An additional speaker output and a headphone jack can be found on the back panel.
