Ashdown’s Little Bastard Review
Music Radar have reviewed Ashdown’s Little Bastard Bass Amp this week. Their overall verdict: “There’s something very special about this set-up. It certainly looks good, but the sound of the EL84’s and a couple of 12-inch drivers is just so damn good to hear again. 4 1/2 out of 5!”
What is the LB30?
Rebellious, uncompromising and cool as f***, James Dean – and the car he nicknamed the Little Bastard – are the inspiration for this iconic, all-tube mini bass amp head. Rated at 30-Watts, the Little Bastard won’t rip your head off, but its EL84-equipped power section is more than capable enough for small gigs. And, of course, it won’t put your back out on the way.
The Little Bastard preamp stage employs ECC83 and ECC82 tubes and features High and Low gain inputs, front panel-mounted Effects Send and Return, rotary Bass, Middle and Treble controls with Mid Shift, Bass Shift and Bright switching, Mute switch, rotary Volume control and balanced DI output. The Little Bastard head partners perfectly with a range of Ashdown US Series cabinets
