Comments about Ashdown Big Boy 220W Bass Head:

I would use this at a small gig. It does have a DI out so one could connect to a PA. The clean sound is good and varies with adjustment of the tone controls like it should, seems to have plenty of head room on the high input channel. Engaging the drive channel works great plugged into the low channel, less drive plugged into the high channel.
