Ashdown AAA EVO 120-BT Bass Amp Ashdown Engineering has expanded its AAA EVO bass amp range with the AAA EVO 120-BT. It’s a lightweight 120-W bass amp combo with a single 15-in. custom speaker. The 120-BT is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, allowing users to stream music to the amplifier. Besides Bluetooth, the 120-BT features passive and active inputs, as well as a balanced DI output making it a fully gig-ready solution. Weighing 37 lbs., the AAA EVO 120-BT features foot switchable tube emulated overdrive for distortion, as well as a four-band EQ section with a sweepable mid control. The Vintage/Modern Low push button changes the character of the low end for either a deep vintage feel or a more modern punchy low end. In a similar fashion, on the high end, the Vintage/Modern Highs push button adds or takes away high-end presence. On the rear of the combo, there is a tweeter mute switch to reduce some of the top end and a speaker mute switch together with a headphone socket for silent practice.

Compact and portable, the T8S features a rugged enclosure with a protective, magnetically- coupled cover to protect controls and connectors. A chassis-bottom insert allows the use of standard mounting accessories. The mixer is intuitive to operate, with illuminated, stage-friendly tactile controls, an easy-to-read display, and scene recall. ToneMatch processing presets with the DSP engine make it easy for musicians to take control of their music. The DSP engine includes studio-quality effects and Bose zEQ equalization, which redefines low, mid, and high ranges for each ToneMatch preset. Each T8S channel has dedicated ToneMatch EQ, dynamics, and effects. The T8S’ effects include a compressor, limiter, de-esser, noise gate, chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo, delay, and reverb. Tap tempo delay and a chromatic tuner are built-in. Aux send one has a dedicated reverb of its own while a master output EQ helps compensate for venue acoustics.
