    New Ashdown compressor, distortion, octave, envelope and chorus.
    They look interesting depending on how they sound and their size (they look like they could be kind of large). True bypass is nice though.

    Any thoughts?

    if their distortion is a overdriven abm sound, i'll totaly go for one!!!!! they look awesome anyway!
  3. Hmmm, sounds interesting and look nice. Could make a few nice additions to my pedal board!
  4. Oh, no severe GAS!!! :help:

    Finally - I emailed ashdown about a sub-harmoniser pedal about 3 years ago and they replied saying it would be coming soon!

    IF it's straight out of the ABM then it'll be time to sell the EBS, my only complaint is that they appear to take up alot of pedalboard real-estate.
  6. And of course, they have VU meter's! Very Cool.

    Looks like its time to get a bigger board to fit one of these cats on.

    I didn't see on the article, but maybe I'm stupid. Any prices on these? I'd be interested in the compressor and chorus.

    That's cool, but what do the VU meters do?

    I think the VU meters help you set the levels (input and output??) correctly. On my old RPM-1 preamp the VU helped set the input level. They are basically just a gimmik though ;)

    I dont have to post since you said almost everything I was going to say, but Ill post anyways.

    Actually, I think this may be a good reason to get another pedal board.
