    Are my eyes deceiving me, or is that an all-tube version of the classic ABM?

    I'm assuming its a custom design if it is, but why oh why does a mass-produced version not exist already? I love my ABM 500, but I've been less impressed with Ashdown's current all-tube offerings. I would instantly jump on an all-tube ABM though.

    the preamp is the same as the ABM, so it is solid state. the preamp tube is for drive only.
    the power amp on the other hand is all tube.

    Interesting. While unconventional, I would think a power tube section would only make an ABM sound better.
