Show full description »

This vintage-flavoured Custom Shop bass head delivers plenty of power and a fantastic tone, and won't disappoin't the discerning bassist who's looking for a new bass amplifier head.

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 and clarity, pre- cision tone shaping and masses of power on tap for stunning dynamics, continues to this day.

The result is the Retroglide-800, an 800 Watts RMS funk powerhouse with hi & low impedance in- strument inputs, 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 combi jack/speakon connector.

A hand machined 6mm alloy panel adorns the front of the Retroglide, machined to protect the slid- ers 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 routes 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 fre- quencies available on the Retroglide you can sculpt your own tone to stand out in the crowd, cur- rently 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.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region

Choose the region you are shopping from to view products in your currency.
