2022 marks the 25th Anniversary since Ashdown Engineering set up shop, and they’re celebrating with new bass gear. In addition to unveiling the newest evolution of their ABM line, they’ve also announced a limited edition of their ABM-400 head.
Ashdown Engineering was on hand at NAMM 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.
Ashdown has expanded their pedal lineup as well as their range of artist products with two new effects units: the John Myung Double Drive Pedal and the Geezer Butler Pedal of Doom.
Ashdown Engineering has teamed up with Guy Pratt to create a new signature amp called the Interstellar-600. The bass icon’s new rig is a take on his ABM-900 with revamped EQ and valve drive sections.
Ashdown Engineering has partnered with Two Notes Audio Engineering to launch a new range of DynIR (Dynamic Impulse Response) virtual cabinets. It includes six of the company’s cabs.
Ashdown is expanding its ABM EVO IV line this year with the ABM EVO IV Dual VU Rack Head and the ABM-EVO IV Pro Neo cabinet range. The line is centered around the company’s new Blue Line Pro Neo speakers.
Ashdown Engineering has pumped up its OriginAL series of amps with the new OriginAL-500H, a 500-watt head that is the same size as its 300-watt predecessor.
Among Ashdown’s many new products introduced at the Winter NAMM Show was the CTM-200R, a 200-watt all-tube head that complements the CTM range’s 300-watt and 100-watt models.
Ashdown has unveiled a new and impossibly small 200-watt bass amp called The Ant. Weighing in at just two pounds, the unit measures 8 inches wide, 4.6 inches deep, and 2.4 inches tall including its feet and knobs.
After fifteen years, Ashdown Engineering has reinstated the ABM 300 to ABM EVO IV series of bass amps. The new head has a lower power rating to fill in the flagship range.
System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian has teamed up with Ashdown Engineering to create the Head 22, a 600-watt bass amp that is hand-built in Ashdown’s UK Custom Shop.
Ashdown Engineering has expanded their pedal offerings with the PRO FX line, which consists of five new units: The Triple Shot, the Macchiato Comp (Guy Pratt Signature), the Studio Comp, the Velvet Comp, and the Type 23.
