Hand built in the UK, the Retroglide-800 is a stunning addition to the Ashdown Custom Shop, taking you back to the good ol' days with warm classic tones and '80s-style aesthetics & features.

The Retroglide adds to the Ashdown Custom Shop offering, hand built in the UK, taking things back to the '80s in style and features.

Ashdown has worked with a number of FUNK Masters over the past 30+ years of making bass amps, the desire to create an amplifier which meets the requirements for absolute fidelity, clarity, precision tone shaping and masses of power for stunning dynamics continues to this day.

The result is the Ashdown Retroglide-800, an 800-Watt RMS funk powerhouse with hi & low impedance instrument inputs, a 12-band graphic EQ @ 30hz to 15Khz + or – 15dB, post EQ balanced DI output, mute switch with LED indicator, Output protect LED indicator just in case things get to hot under the hood, line input, effects loop and speaker output Nuetrik combination jack/speakon connector.

A hand-machined 6mm alloy panel adorns the front of the Retroglide, machined to protect the sliders from being knocked in transport. Housed in an engineered mild steal lid, designed to protect the input and output knobs as well as provide a steady airflow for ventilation.

Ashdown's Mark Gooday said, "The Retroglide really takes me back to my [roots] as a bass player, pure, simple tone at your finger tips." Building bass amps has been much more than just a job for Gooday in his 30+ year tenure in the industry: "Bass has to be felt to be appreciated and with the specific frequencies available on the Retroglide you can sculpt your own tone to stand out in the crowd, currently awash with powerless & toneless imitations of a BASS amp. The Retroglide does exactly what you would expect it to."

Designed to stand the test of time all Ashdown products come with a 5 year warranty as standard.
