Ashdown Engineering Unveils ABM EVO V 750 Bass Amp
Ashdown Engineering was on hand at NAMM 2022 to celebrate its 25th anniversary with new products including the latest iteration of their ABM series of bass amps. The ABM EVO V 750 is the sixth version of the line and has a few new tricks up its sleeve.
The amp is the first ABM to have dual VU meters to monitor both input and output levels. Its 750-watt power section is called “the most dynamic ever used in an ABM.” The UK-built amp also has mains voltage switching temperature controlled cooling, and a transformer-isolated DI output. Fans of the series will enjoy features that carry over from previous builds: a 9-band EQ, a tube drive, an onboard compressor, and a sub-harmonic control.
“Like everything we do, the ABM EVO V is developed in response to the needs of our customers,” comments Ashdown MD Dan Gooday. “An increasing number of players have been asking if we can bridge the dual output sections of our ABM 1200 head. The new ABM EVO V answers that need for more power and dynamics.”
The Ashdown ABM EVO V 750 will be available soon with a street price of around $1,899.
