So there is no confusion yes I am an Ashdown Artist, however despite this, I got this amp from them in October and I have to say that it is fantastic!!!
I was looking to replace the MarkBass Mini that I was using as this actually belonged to a band that I play for. Being an Ashdown artist I thought it only fair to try their new "lightweight" range.
Having been an ABM player for the last 15 years I had my doubts!
The sound that I am able to get from this little combo is as close to an ABM sound as you could imagine with all of the extras. The compressor, drive and octaver are all present and meaty in their tone alongside a 5 band eq.
Having used the MarkBass for the last few years I was pleasantly surprised when approached by audience members, crew etc to praise the quality and fullness of sound that this amp has.
That all being said it is not as light at the MarkBass, bigger too, and the sound is not the Hi-Fi sound that I had...but it is the sound that I want!
Hope you like them as much as I do.
