The New Bass Amplification Range from Ashdown: The Dual Tube Pre-Amp Series
The Ashdown Dual Tube Pre-Amp Series - An Ashdown amp for pretty much any type of player, and any type of budget...
(Due into stock at Dolphin soon) The New Ashdown Dual Tube Pre Amp Series, first heard in the monstrous custom shop 427 Small Block head, Ashdown's Dual Tube bass preamp was an instant hit, thanks to its solid, articulate bottom end and sparkling highs. The new Dual Tube range takes this stunning valve preamp design and partners it with updated and tour proven 220 watt and 330 watt solid state power stages. Available in two 220 watt combos(1x12 and 1x15), two 330 watt combos(1x15 and 2x10) as well as 330 watt and 550 watt heads these new amps offer true valve bass tone at refreshingly affordable prices.
The discerning bass player gets high and low gain inputs, front panel-mounted FX send and return, rotary bass, middle and treble controls with mid shift, bass shift and bright switching, mute switch, rotary gain and master volume controls and a DI output. Retro cabinet styling features vinyl covering, chrome protective corners, vintage red grille cloth and, of course, the trademark illuminated Ashdown VU meter.
Alongside the Dual Tube range is the new VS Cabinet range with custom drivers, road-ready build quality, vintage red cloth grilles and ‘retro’ speaker configurations(1x12, 2x12, 1x15, 4x12) – VS cabinets are the perfect partner for Ashdown Dual Tube Series bass heads.
Sensational new product isn't the only reason for Ashdown to get excited about 2011. Long-term ambassadors of the company's industry-standard ABM Series bass amps System Of A Down take to the road in Europe after a 5 year hiatus, as do stadium superstars and similarly committed ABM fans the Foo Fighters. Meanwhile, Scotland's own Biffy Clyro have completed their transformation from cult heroes to fully-fledged arena fillers, powered along the way by bassist James Johnston's sledgehammer Ashdown BTA bass rig plus the countless other Ashdown rigs that will be taking to the festival stages this summer.
"We're all about giving bass players what they want, then standing behind them with the best service in the business. With a growing range of valve driven amps to complement our existing ABM, MAG and EB ranges, there's now an Ashdown amp for pretty much any type of player, and any type of budget".
