NAMM 2015: Ashdown Announce New Woodsman Range of Acoustic Amplifiers

(PRESS RELEASE): New Woodsman builds on long legacy of acoustic amp design to deliver class-leading standards of vocal and instrument performance.

Designed for the new wave of acoustic performers, Ashdown announce the Woodsman family of amplifiers, combining traditional, beautiful wooden-cabinets with powerful modern features for live performance and recording.

“Ashdown has had a long tradition of creating great amplifiers for acoustic performers,” says Ashdown’s Mark Gooday.

“With this latest range we’ve designed amps that deliver superb sound for a new generation of acoustic guitarists and singers and deliver the features they need at a new level of affordability.”

With inputs for microphones and acoustic guitar, Woodsman amps are ideal for duos, or solo singer/guitar  players, delivering pure, clear, acoustic tone and essential performance tuning features, including phase reverse and feedback eliminating notch filters.

Three compact models are available - 25W Parlour, 40W Classic and 65W Jumbo. Each model features a custom-designed 8” Celestion driver. The Classic and Parlour model also feature a horn for increased full-range sound.

The 15W Parlour model features a Mic Channel with independent volume control, guitar channel with volume, bass, mid and treble controls, studio-quality digital reverb, and a master volume.

The 40W Classic model builds on the Parlour, adding a Tone control for the Mic Channel, Active and Passive inputs on the guitar channel, phase reversal switch, notch filter and an XLR DI out for recording or connecting to a PA.

The flagship 65WJumbo model adds yet more flexible features, including full 3-band EQ for the Mic Channel, enhanced reverb algorithms (including Hall and Spring settings) and a transparent effects loop for use with external devices.
