Ashdown Origin Head 300 Watt Bass Amplifier Head

The OriginAL clinches the key fundamentals of everything that makes a great bass amp. This lightweight, portable and stripped back bass amp head takes Ashdown back to the origin of their Tone.

Starting from the top, a passive/active switch determines the whether the amp is being used with a high or low output instrument and sets a clear signal path to the input control. From here, the player can fine-tune their input level using Ashdown’s trademark VU meter, which takes pride of place at the very centre of the amp head.


OriginAL Features
Ashdown | Setting the standard since '97


Simple yet Powerful EQ
With the signal at its optimal level, you then 
hit a defined set offeatures designed enhance 
your tone. The OriginAL features a tried and 
tested 5-band EQ, controlling your traditional
bass, middle and treble with a lo-mid and 
hi-mid sitting comfortably either side of the 
variable middle control. The additional Shape
control further sculpts your tone, lifting the 
frequencies that really count – like a smiley 
face on a graphic equalizer.
Tonally Connected
The output control regulates the output volume of the amp and wrapping
up the features on the front panel is an easy to reach DI output, as well as
an independent FX send and return, which allows the amp to set a very
clear signal path with no interruptions.
Create the Perfect Rig
To the rear of this condensed unit is a very 
well considered headphone out, which 
doubles this gig-ready head as a great home 
practice device. 2 x jack speaker outputs 
with a minimum 4 ohm load provides 
flexible partnering options with Ashdown’s 
existing range of bass cabinets
Ready for the Road
The OriginAL is a rugged little go-getter, using scuff proof paint
over its steel & aloy chassis. Retaining a nice yet practical weight
to it, with quality feeling control pots, The OriginAL is built to
last a lifetime. Offered with a 5 year warranty, The OriginAL
comes complete with auto protect voltage for global touring
musicians and an adaptive temperature controlled fan for road
and studio use.
