Looking around at various amplifier threads and rig threads, I have yet to see much in the way of love for Ashdown amplifiers, and I got to wondering why that is. Is it something as simple as not having as big a market share stateside as they do in the UK? Is it the "bang for the buck" or lack of? Is it "roadworthiness" or lack of? Or is it that their tone is an acquired taste or just not suitable for some? Recently I discovered the Ashdown Retroglide 800, which seemed really interesting, but it was quite a while between the release of the product and seeing anyone give any kind of a review on it. There still aren't many out there. I remember seeing the old Ashdown MAG line in years past and it seemed, based on reviews at least, that they had decent tone and moderate reliability, typical for most brands entry level stuff (e.g. GK Backline). Those that have bought into the ABM line seem to really like them, but there don't seem to be as many ABM owners as there are owners of the typical US domestic brands (GK, Ampeg, etc.). So why is it that there doesn't appear to be love for Ashdown?
