    I own the EVO500II and I can't say enough about it. Now...........I have heard the combination of the 500 and the Berg 610. There's nothing more to say than


    BUY IT!

    If you want a HUGE focused sound with the ability to grind than there's no need to look any further. Awesome sounding rig!

    I got the Rack-mount version of this amp... love it!... but I play it through the NV215. :eek: :eek: :bassist:

    with the ashdown are you able to get a good growl out of your bass? im thinking of getting a jazz bass soon too.

    The ashdown will growl forever with a good J bass. You can easily gain some exra umph and growl with the Valve knob turned up a bit. It really brings that quality out.

    Yes I own an ABM 500 EVO - which was the one before the EVO II.

    Main difference is that you can footswitch in and out the amount of pre-amp drive you get - you can set the dial and switch it in when you want some warmth or grind. You can also spot it as the EVO has a RED mute LED, the EVO II has a BLUE one. There are also I believe some circuitry changes that make he EVO II better.....but I'm sure there is another footswitchable option that disappeared to allow the space for the pre- amp grind footswitching (but I can't remember what it is!).


    I'm very happy with the ABM 500 EVO......don't think and EVO or an EVO II will disappoint! :bassist:
