So last night I borrowed a rather rare Ashdown Fallen Angel 180. Unlike my FA60, these bad boys were built in the UK and semi hand wired (couple of PCB's, but the interconnections and the connections to all the chassis mounted stuff like the transformers & jacks is hand wired). There were also less than 50 built. This particular one is tweaked too, as the mate who owns it knows the guys over at Ashdown and had a few mods done when it was built.
Anyway, the thing that's stuck me the most is the size of the damn transformers in this thing. Excuse the crappy night time iPhone pics, but to give you a scale the output tubes are 6 EL34's:
I'll let you know what it sounds like loud tomorrow, I'm using it at rehearsal tonight.
Look at the size of those things! They're huge!
