Designed to be a value-packed amp by a world-renowned bassist

Polish bassist Wojtek Pilichowski is recognized not only for his exceptional bass skills, but he's also incredibly passionate about teaching music as well. He worked with Ashdown to create a bass amp that was sonically flexible enough to keep up with his wide-range playing, yet was also affordable for his students. The result is the PiBass-240, and we think any bass player will be happy playing through this tone-packed amp.

Sounds great with any style of bass

No matter what kind of bass guitar you play, it's easy to dial in a great sound with the PiBass-240. The active/passive pickup input selector lets you plug in any bass and get a solid signal, and the bright switch helps add definition when you need it. And with the musical three-band EQ, you can fine-tune your sound for any musical situation.

Great, but not perfect...

First, this amp is light AND quiet. It doesn't have a fan, so operationally, it's very quiet. The flat sound compared to my other amps is exact. The EQ settings take some getting us. it is easy to dial in a slap tone, fingerstyle jazz, solo tone or anything in between. There are some things that could be better: 1) No effect loop 2) No aux in 3) No tuner out But for recording, practice, or a back up amp - this is highly recommended!
