ASHDOWN - NAMM 2012
From Ashdown at NAMM:
"Thanks to all who came by the Ashdown booth at the NAMM show this year. It was our best show in a decade, we had Shavo from System of a Down, Jimmy from Buckcherry and Eric from Sublime come by and sign for their fans, the lines went round the booth. Check out the Ashdown FaceBook page for more news from the show http://www.facebook.com/AshdownBassAmps."
The lovely chaps at Premier Guitar magazine gave Ashdown an Editors pick award for the CTM 300 at Namm.
THEIR LOUDEST AMP THEY'VE EVER MADE!
Introducing the new ABM 1000 and 2000 the most powerful bass heads Ashdown have ever made!
The ABM 1000 pairs the much loved ABM EVO III pre amp with a monstrous Class D 1000 watt RMS (2000 watts peak) power section resulting in a huge increase in power coupled with a dramatic reduction in weight compared to the ABM 500 head retaining the signature Ashdown tone but with masses of headroom. The ABM 2000 uses two 1000 watt power modules producing a bone crushing 2000 watts (4000 watts peak)
When trying for the first time at the Namm show French bass player extraordinaire Pascal Mulot declared the ABM 1000 to be simply ‘frightening’ and after damaging our hearing many times during the development of these new amps we would have to agree with him!
