Ashdown AAA Five 15 BB 1x15" 220-Watt Bass Combo
Special Order

Use Your Apps to Customize This Amp's Tone!

The Ashdown Five 15 BB bass combo amp is a punchy, full-sounding practice amp that's powerful enough to hold its own in small jam sessions, too. You can easily connect to a larger sound system with the built-in XLR DI output, and there's a headphone output for silent practice, also. But the reason Sweetwater bassists dig the Five 15 BB is its AppTek connection for your smartphone or tablet computer. Just plug in your Android or iOS device with the included cable and you're ready to rock out with your favorite amp and effects modeling apps through the Ashdown Five 15 BB!

Ashdown Five 15 BB Bass Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Expanding your tone is as easy as plugging in your phone or tablet
  • Perfect for late night practice
  • Sounds great with any bass
Expanding your tone is as easy as plugging in your phone or tablet

Plug your smartphone or tablet into the Five 15 BB's AppTek connection and you can use practically any amp and effects modeling app to shape your tone. You can even use it to record your bass directly to your recording apps. Add the sound of vintage compressors and EQs to fatten up your live bass tone, or you can simply experiment with all sorts of different effects without having to plug in a bunch of pedals. However you use it, the AppTek option gives you incredible creative flexibility on top of an already solid tonal foundation.

Perfect for late night practice

When it's time to respect the neighbors, the Ashdown Five 15 BB is ready to keep things quiet. Plug your headphones in, hit the switch to turn off the speaker, then plug in any external sound source you like and keep playing. When it's time to record, the handy XLR DI output lets you send fat, punchy tone directly to your preamplifier or audio interface.

Sounds great with any bass

Ashdown equipped the Five 15 BB combo with two inputs, a high-impedance input for basses with active pickups, and a low-impedance input for passive pickups. So no matter what kind of bass or style you play, you'll have fat, round tone that won't break up until you turn up the tube-emulated overdrive.

Ashdown Five 15 BB Bass Combo Amplifier Features:
  • Punchy combo amp with 220 watts of power driving a custom Ashdown 15" speaker
  • Easy to record and perform with, thanks to the built-in XLR DI output
  • Practice or record silently with the speaker-off switch
  • Integrate your Android or iOS bass apps with the AppTek connection for your smartphone or tablet
  • Dial in a respectable tone for any style with the 3-band EQ
  • Sounds great with any electric bass, thanks to high- and low-impedance inputs for active or passive pickups
It's a lot of fun to practice, perform, and record with the Ashdown Five 15 BB!
