Hi guys this is really just to get a feeler if there is any interest in swapping an ashdown fallen angel 2x12 combo for a soid state power amp. I have a 4x12 not being used and wanted to run my pod hd500 to a closed back cab and a neutral power amp to get the most of the pods amp models. The ashdown has 2 el34s in the power section and 2 v30's which I would leave in there if it gets swapped. Great amp for classic metal sounds, but not high gain enough for my tastes. It's also one of the very first ones built and sold in the UK. I think it was built in the Essex factory at the same time as the fa180. It's not one the dsp built in fx models - I think these were MIC. It's got the volt mete in the centre, not on the far left side.
EDIT ill call ashdown when I can to confirm if made in England
Laptop is on the blink atm, so I'm typing on my phone. I can get pics up if I need to, but won't be able to tonight I'm afraid. Externals look good tho. No tears in tRolex, all knobs present etc
Word of warning...
THIS AMP HASN'T HAD NEW VALVES IN ABOUT 8 YEARS AND HAS BEEN IN STORAGE FOR ABOUT 3. THE POWER AMP WORKS FINE AS I'M RUNNING MY POD THROUGH IT FINE BUT THE PRE SOUNDS ODD.
Its like the amp is distant and underwater and lacks gain. This could just be old pre valves or something more. I honestly couldn't tell you the cause. So I want to make that clear now.
My eBay account is plezza and my rating is 100%.
Amp is very heavy but I'm happy to meet somewhere if needs be, I'm based in romford Essex
What I'm looking for is a power amp to compliment the pod. 100-300 watts ideally, rack mounted, I can throw in a little cash for a decent power amp, but I'm a bit broke right now.
If anyone is interested wants more info, or thinks I'm dreaming, let me know.
i forgot to mention i will also throw in the double footswitch to change from clean/OD channel and the OD boost, and i have a single footswitch i can throw in to change between the 2 master volume channels (I think i have a marshall one somewhere )
here is a link to a few pictures, and no i wasn't drunk when i took them.
