While the Ashdown CTM-15 tube bass amplifier head is all about big valve tone in a tiny package that's perfect for recording, the Drophead version gives you that power ready to go in a compact combo format, teamed with a striking 1x10” cabinet that's tuned for use at home or in the studio.

Low power, big sound
Plug in and lay down a few bass lines through the Drophead 15, and you won't be the first to wonder "Wow, is that really only 15 watts?".  The Drophead 15 delivers deceptively large tones from its dual EL84 power stage, and it's low wattage means its easier to get red-blooded overdrive by driving it hard – all without shaking the foundations.

Whether the session needs big fat clean tones or growling, overdriven bass, the Drophead 15 has you covered.

Find the sweet spot fast with the VU meter display
Like all similarly equipped Ashdown's, the CTM-15's analogue VU meter isn't just there for show. Giving an instant accurate display of your power amp's output the CTM-15's VU meter let's you quickly find your amps sweet spot – where the magic really happens.

Flip it up – rip it up
Dropheads are cool. When you're ready to play, simply un-clip the top, flip the amp head into position, clip it back down, plug in and let the tone come forth.
