by Danny Edwards

There are many reasons to be patriotic in Britian... just ask the Sex Pistols. One other reason to be is Ashdown Engineering.

Started up in '97 as a small family business, Ashdown had to earn themselves a reputation through honest, hard work over the years. Somewhat of a cult figure in the bass amp market, they have done extremely well for themselves with many bass players swearing by their gear.

Forget theatrical sales pitches and glamorous advertising - Ashdown spend their time hand crafting their amplifiers to ensure their amps are the best they can be. Perhaps this TLC that Ashdown put into their amps is the reason why many famous artists choose Ashdown as their no.1 amplifier.

It is a known fact that Ashdown are now a serious name amongst bass players worldwide, old and young. You can hear Ashdown's presence regularly, with more notable bands such as Foo Fighters, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Biffy Clyro, You Me At Six and 1975 using them. Nate Mendel (Foo Fighters) has even collaborated with Ashdown to produce the NM2 Dual Distortion pedal that meets his exact preferences. They have a full list of artists that use them on their website here - but be warned, it's a very long list.
