A reliable replacement for old technology, the CTM range delivers both huge amounts of tube tone and power.

The Ashdown Classic Tube Magnifier 100 is a simplistic preamp with tube driven and recovered FX loop, dual gain stage with gain control, bass, middle and treble rotary controls.

The CTM 100 packs 100 watts into 2-, 4- and 8- cabinet outputs through speakon jacks, one for each ohmage with no selector to go wrong. Handy, easy-to-flick switches further shape your sound in the form of a 'Mellow' tone switch, 'Bass Shift' tone switch for deep/clean bass and 'Mid Shift' which moves the frequency of the mid control for further shaping. There's even a 'Bright' switch for enhanced definition at lower volume settings.

The stunning all-tube tone can be easily sent through to the PA on larger gigs, due to the tube-driven DI out which is transformer derived with isolated ground.

The CTM is fitted with a cooling fan to change the air in the cabinet and supplement the large air vents. Extra large, overrated transformers and a heavy-duty chassis together with an 18mm plywood case make the CTM a road-ready beast that's built to last.
