Despite fitting into the front pocket of an average bass guitar gig bag, the new Ashdown MiBass bass amp punches way above its weight of 3.12lbs/1.4kg with a heavy-hitting combination of style, power, tone and features.
Measuring just 8.27" x 2.6" x 6.27" (including an internal power supply), the MiBass packs a comprehensive range of facilities including switchable active/passive instrument inputs, 7 band semi-parametric EQ for precision tone shaping, Deep and Shape switches for instant access to killer sounds and an EQ in out switch, along with the all important trade mark VU input meter, output level control, mini jack line input with level control.
Things are equally impressive around the back of this pint-sized powerhouse, with a pre/post switchable balanced DI output, power switch, FX send & return, line output, phones out, a pair of combination Speakon/Jack speaker outputs.
The Ashdown MiBass comes as standard in either silver or black, rated at 220watts (black) and 550watts (silver). However we will also offer two other colours, Blue and Purple. For you creative types out there you can create your own front panel that we can print and send directly to your door, making it a very special one-off product. You will be able to download the blank panel from www.ashdownmusic.com and send it to us to be printed. You are only limited to your imagination.
Sensational new product isn’t the only reason for Ashdown to get excited about 2011. Long-term ambassadors of the company’s industry-standard ABM Series bass amps System Of A Down take to the road in Europe after a 5-year hiatus, as do stadium superstars and similarly committed ABM fans the Foo Fighters. Meanwhile, Scotland’s own Biffy Clyro have completed their transformation from cult heroes to fully-fledged arena fillers, powered along the way by bassist James Johnston’s sledgehammer Ashdown BTA bass rig.
“We’re all about giving bass players what they want, then standing behind them with the best service in the business,” comments Ashdown Marketing and Artist Relations Manager Dan Gooday, “With a growing range of tube amps to complement our existing ABM, MAG and EB ranges, there’s now an Ashdown amp for pretty much any type of player, and any type of budget”.
