    Hi
    Someone can sell me an ASHDOWN ABM 300 EVO II head for 1000euros..
    Is it a good deal?
    I would sell my Hartke3500 to buy it.
    Is ashdown ABM 300 EVO really better than Hartke3500???
    Thx

    They are very different. Hartke sounds too "flat" for me. Ashdown ABM is half way between Ampeg SVT and Trace Elliot. Very nice amp. I had an ABM 500 EVO rig, the only reason why I sold it was that I was downsizing my gear.

    Cheers,

  6. If you buy a Hartke over an ashdown, I pitty your soul when the bass diety gets ahold of ya:D Hartke, was my former love, Now I'm fixing my 3500...Just so I can either get rid of it, or get the tech to make sure it never has a "Hartke Moment" again...
