Ashdown Bass Amps & Heads - Britains Finest
Ashdown Bass Amps - Something To Be Proud Ofby 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.
