ASHDOWN ENGINEERING

CTM-30 LITTLE STUBBY


The CTM-30 Little Stubby is the next step in the iconic Ashdown CTM(Classic Tube Magnifier) bloodline.

All valve(tube) bass amps are truly special, known for their warmth, punch and harmonic richness that solid state amplifiers can rarely achieve. The trade off is that traditionally valve amps are big, heavy and cumbersome.

 An evolutionary step forwards from the classic LB 30/CTM 30 the Little Stubby pushes the rules of valve amplification design to the limits in a never before seen highly compact package that breaks away from the traditionally unwieldy amplifiers of years gone by.

Producing 30 watts of inspirational all valve bass tone from 4 x EL84 output valves the Little Stubby is all about purity of tone combined with real world versatility. The input gain and master volume allow for deep clean tones through to hugely overdriven contemporary tones and all points in between.

However the heart of this amp is the unique Feedback control which allows the complete character of the amp to be changed and fine tuned from old school vintage valve amp tones at one end through to tighter more mid heavy modern tones at the other. This combined with the well considered three band EQ gives almost limitless tonal variations. FX send and return continue the sonic purity and allow the players favourite modulation/time based effects to be sent straight into the power amp.

The CTM-30 Little Stubby marks the next developmental leap in the Ashdown valve bass amplification bloodline. Improved tone, features, portability and versatilty make the Little Stubby a new icon in the all valve bass amplification market.

Measuring just 400 mm wide, 235 mm deep and 95 mm tall, the CTM-30 Little Stubby brings a classic all-valve tone in a compact and more portable gig-ready head.

The unique Feedback control allows the character of the amp to be changed and fine tuned from old school vintage valve amp tones at one end through to tighter more mid heavy modern tones at the other.

The Ashdown CTM-30 Little Stubby has an upgraded 30-watt EL84 driven power section and features a single instrument input with hi and low input sensitivity selector switch, for use with active or passive basses. The amp combines traditional ‘Bass, Middle and Treble’ rotary EQ control with a familiar Volume, Drive and unique Feedback control to accomplish both contemporary and classic all-valve tones from its ECC81, ECC82 and ECC83 preamp valves. It’s extremely easy to finding the gain ‘sweet spot’ on the Little Stubby – producing a warm, full-bodied overdriven sound.
The Little Stubby features a balanced transformer derived DI output. Perfect for studio recording or for live performances where you need to get pure DI signal to the desk with a minimum hassle. If you want to use your favourite pedals or multi-effects, you’ll find conveniently located send and return sockets on the front panel.

A duo of ¼” Jack sockets provides flexible partnering options with a range of Ashdown speaker cabinets at 4-ohm (minimum) or 8-ohm.
