Little BastardAshdown introduce the Little Bastard 550 after public demand for a Little Bastard bass head with more power! The Little Bastard 550 features a new version of the LB 30 pre-amp with added Gain control, coupled with the 550 Watt digital power section from the MiBass, resulting in stunning valve bass tone in a loud, lightweight compact head.However, not everyone will be able to get their hands on one of these as they are only going to be released in a limited edition batch! 50 Little Bastard 550's have been made in Ashdown's UK Custom Shop and one of them is available from us today!

Each Little Bastard 550 will be numbered from 1-50 and each comes with a Ltd Edition certificate, signed by designer Dave Green and MD Mark Gooday. Plus, the extra good news is that these heads won't completely break the bank! Become part of this exclusive Little Bastard club today!For more information on the Little Bastard 550 or to buy one, click the link below:

  • I'm afraid that the LB 550 was sold. They were extremely limited (only 50 in the UK), so as it is no longer available, it has been removed from our site.

    When we had it in, it s RRP was £529. I'll get speak to someone in our Guitar Dept. though and get back to you with some alternative recommendations.

  • Here is what our guitar team had to say:

    The Ashdown ABM 500 EVO III ( would be an alternative head, as the 550 is no longer available, and is compatible with the cabinets that you have. Likewise, the Ashdown MiBass 550 ( is another option. And, here's a curveball idea if you're after something with valve tone; look at the Orange Bass Terror (

    We hope that helps :)
