Highly regarded bass amp manufacturer Ashdown show us their new range of innovative bass amps.
A genuine London double-decker bus formed the focus of Ashdown Engineerings booth at NAMM 2011, where the UK bass-specialists are set to launch a range of new tube bass amps.
Perhaps the most exciting of Ashdown's releases at NAMM 2011 is the Drophead LB 30 and 200 combo.
These are convertible designs in which the amp chassis is stored in the cabinet for ease of transportation, then flipped up and clipped into place on top, ready for stage or studio use.
The 220W Ashdown 220 Touring 112 takes this stunning tube preamp design and partners it with an uprated and tour proven EB power stage, delivering the payload via a custom 12" driver.

The 330 Dual Tube Pre Amp Series, first heard in the 427 Small Block, Ashdown?s Dual Tube bass preamp was an instant hit, thanks to its solid, articulate bottom end and sparkling highs.
