Ashdown Relaunches the CTM-15 Bass Amp
Ashdown has reintroduced the CTM-15 all-tube desktop bass amp for 2023. The low-wattage amp delivers 15 watts of tube tone in a compact enclosure that now includes built-in load and headphone outputs for silent use.
“The CTM-15 delivers deceptively large tones from its dual EL84 power stage, and its low wattage means it’s easier to get red-blooded overdrive by driving it hard – all without shaking the foundations,” the company writes.
Its control set includes Gain, Volume, and a three-band EQ. Of course, Ashdown included their signature VU meter for displaying the power amp’s output. The CTM-15 has four and eight-ohm speaker outputs and an XLR line-level DI.
The Ashdown CTM-15 is shipping this month with a price point of $799.
