    Hi
    I'm very intrested about Ashdown's stuff..
    Expecially the ABM 500 EVO II ...
    What do you think of that amp ??
    I actually have a Hartke 3500, would you make the change ???
    I can have ABM 500 EVO II new for about 1000 euros, that is far cheapier than the normal price.. :)
    I d like o find a site where I can have the prices of all Ashdown products.. The official site does'nt talk about prices.. :(
    Thanks :bassist:

    Based on the performance of my ABM 500RC EVO (which I cannot imagine being without,) I can bet that the EVO II is just as good - if not better. I cannot say that I have played through the new EVO II yet. From what I have heard, however, the newer EVO II has more headroom and less noise.

    If you want your amp head to be in a 19" rack, then take the RC. Otherwise, the regular ABM500EVOII is the same one, but in a non-rackable box.

    Your other questions have been answered
    in your previous (and similar) thread .

    Cheers,

    I have the ABM500 EVO RC and LOVE it! What is different or changed with the EVO II? I never feel like I need anything more than my ABM500 EVO gives me.
