    Has anyone tried the Ashdown FX? Espacially the compressor or the sub octaver (with distortion!?)?

    Tell me...:smug:

    Is that Sub Ocatave similar to the one featured in the ABM Amp Series?

    I would think that's what it'd be....but I'm really looking forward to the compressor myself

    Are they actually out yet? It seems no one has tried one or owns one.... On the Ashdown website I can't find anything about releasing dates.
     
  10. theyre supposed to be out in march, $120 at musiciansfriend i think, when it comes out it could go down though.

    if i actually had any money i'd love to get one

    Somebody had posted clips of the OD somewhere....

    I can't seem to find them anymore.

    So I like the price... now I want to hear it!
    I remember the clips of the OD... didn't care for it much. And I'm pretty sure I will not need an octave, so reviews about compressor still wanted (for me)!
    Thanks

    I was at Bass Emporium in Austin, TX last week, and was told the effects won't even ship until around May 15. Apparently, anyone selling them right now is really only taking advance orders.

    Can anyone verify this information?

    I emailed ashdown yesterday about that, I also asked for soundclips. Here is what they answered:

    Hi Willem
    We have started to ship the pedals now ( apart from Chorus, approx
    another 6 weeks ) into the dealers in UK and will have them distributed
    throughout Europe and the USA in the next few weeks. We do intend to get
    sound clips up on the web as soon as poss.
    Regards
    Martin

    "The next few weeks...." Sounds like May, to me (at least here in the States).;)

    Hmm,

    I already have an RPM-1, but I have been considering getting a compressor. Seems like I'd be duplicating a feature I dont use, if I decided to wait on this particular compressor.
