Dagan demoes Ashdowns compact but powerful 5 watt guitar amp, the AGM-5C!
Small and lightweight, with enough power and tone to suit a small to club-sized venue, it's the Ashdown AGM-5C 5 Watt Guitar Combo! This 5-watt pure Class A guitar amp comes complete with a 12" Celestion Creamback speaker, digital reverb, and a powerful solid-state preamp that extends the tonal range right into overdrive!
Should the sheer power of this little amp be a bit too much when you're hoping to get some quiet practice time in, there's no need to worry.
Thanks to the on-board Stealth switch, you can reduce the amp's overall volume with ease, whilst the Speaker Tone compensation ensures that there's no loss of sound quality.
Not only that, but if you're recording and don't want to be picking up any excess noise from the amp, simply use the Recording Out socket, and activate the "Speaker Mute" function

Don't let the 5 Watt output on the Ashdown AGM-5C fool you: this amplifier can push some serious air. Thanks to the EL84 and 12AX7 valves in the Power and Preamp sections and the on-board 12" Celestion Creamback speaker, you won't believe it's only a 5 Watt amplifier you're playing.
However, if you're playing a gig at a larger venue and think the 5 Watts won't be loud enough, have no fear: there's also a 16 Ohm speaker output socket on the rear panel, letting you power a variety of different cabinet sizes.
