Anyone ever play through an Ashdown 810?

  1. It's all in the title. I'm just wondering what they sound like, I think they look great but I've never had a chance to play through one. Are they similar to an Ampeg 810? Or do they sound alot different?

    I just got a ashdown mag 810 t and I'm using a kustom groove 1200 watt head with it. I love it, and I'm thinking about getting another 810 to go with it. They sell them online at for 649 with free shipping.

    Ummm, just listen to most of the UK bands at the moment. At a massive outdoor concert on UK tv recently, I would estimate around 2/3 of the bassists were playing ABM Evo 500s and 810s.They sounded great!

    Got to play the ABM 8x10 today, and I have to say this is awsome!!

    I was running it with a ABM 900 EVOII and the sound nothing less than perfect. Great lows, not boomy, crisp mids and clean highs.

    I've not tried this head with an Ampeg 8x10, but I doubt it would be any better.

    If you want a 810, I'd recommend you to take a look at it.
