I've been looking for a head to replace my Avalon U5/PLX 1202 rack. I talked to Jim Bergantino to find out what head he would suggest for me to use with his HT112 cab. He said Ashdown ABM 300 EVO II. It's about the only amp I haven't tried so why not. I go to the local store. They only have a 15" MAG combo. I tried it. Pretty nice. A little dark for me but they say they can get more "hi-fi" as well. They just got a MAG 300 head in so I'm gonna see if I can take it home and try it with my Bergie. I've read that peolpe love the Ashdown/Bergie combination. We'll see. Over the last few days I've been reading reviews on Ashdown. Some people say they are not reliable, some people have used them for years with no issues. The guy at the store (who I trust) says that they have a few young guys using them in punk "I beat my gear" bands around here and they have held up well. One band in particular was going to be his "test" for reliability as the guy is known for being hard on his gear. He said they have had no problems. WHICH IS IT? I need to feel a little better before I buy.
