About This Listing

At Ashdown, we know that not every gig pays the big bucks. Dedicated to busy, hard-working bass players on a budget, Rootmaster heads, combos and cabinets draw on all of our experience working with some of the biggest bands in the world to deliver workhorse reliability, creative tone-shaping, comprehensive recording and performing facilities plus the sonic slam you need to underpin your band’s performances night after night – all at a price that won’t break the bank.

Powered by the 800W digital amp, the RM800 is the lightest RM head, weighing in at 4.5kg (9lbs) and the perfect choice for working bassists looking for power and features without the weight.

RM 800 Features: 

Simple, powerful EQ 

The Rootmaster EVO series’ pre amp now includes a passive and active input jack socket for use with high and low output instruments. The five- band rotary tone controls act with surgical precision to provide total control over your sound, while a shape switch instantly dials you in to a classic Ashdown tone setting, straight from the world-famous ABM.

One-knob Compression 

Instantly adding warmth and body to your tone, this simple to use, the great sounding compressor delivers a powerful, even sound to make sure your bass will fill out any mix.

Overdrive & Sub 

With foot-switchable flexibility, our tube-emulated overdrive can take your core bass sound and push it into warm overdrive through to distorted filth whenever you need to add extra grind and girth to your tone.

Bringing extra depth and definition to your bass parts, the Sub-Harmonic Generator lets you dial in a sub-octave and kick it in via footswitch whenever you need the extra depth for those super-heavy Godzilla moments.

Totally connected 

If you want to use your favorite pedals or multi-effects, you’ll find send and return sockets on the back panel, along with a DI output for direct injection into the PA mixer or recording console and a Line Input (with front panel level control) so you can jam along with a backing track in rehearsal.

A combined Jack/Speakon socket with a minimum 4-ohm load provides flexible partnering options with a dedicated range of Rootmaster EVO cabinets. Ashdown’s 1 x 12”, 1 x 15”, 2 x 10” and 6 x 10” cabs all feature Ashdown White Line speakers for a refined tone, plus a high- frequency 3-way controllable tweeter for an additional top-end bite.
