    I just noticed that the Ashdown Klystron 500 has just found its way into the Musicians Friend catalog.... priced at $1850.


    No sign of the ABM EVO III, so I'm guessing the price point will be close to that of the current model EVO II, which MF has listed for $750.

    Both models come equipped w/ built-in compressor...

    I'm struggling w/ the motivation to be interested in a Klystron, when its priced more than DOUBLE of the models we've already been enjoying, just in a new case. And the luxury of knowing it was made in England.

    Does anyone else feel this way?

    Oh man, is the ABM 500 EVO II (III) listed at 750 USD? :eek:
    In Sweden it's more like 1100 USD - gets you planning a trip to the states... :D:bassist:

    Oh I know. I'm really more curious why someone would spend the 2.5x the money on a Klystron. The new case DOES look sexy, but thats alot of cash for the case.

    I'm pretty sure it's just for the upgraded case and the "britishness". Unless they add something to the Klystron line that the ABM doesn't have I can't imagine they'll sell very many of them, especially with the current economic climate...
