Ashdown Studio Range
The NEW Combos fro the British producer
The Range consists of four beautiful combos, the award winning Studio 15, Studio 12, Studio 10 & Studio 8 all named in relation to the size of speaker fitted. The all-new designs feature a new light-weight design using responsibly sourced poplar-ply wood, providing a light but strong structure for Ashdown new combo enclosures.
All of which have been tuned to their appropriate speaker capacities the 15 is rear ported for a deeper bass response and the 12 is front ported to project those mids, where as the 10 and 8 are both sealed enclosures. Using Ashdown designed Studio NEO speakers in the Studio 15 and Studio 12 for a powerful and ultra lightweight driver.
Today people require Ashdown products to be portable yet practical, which in essence is a task of its own. When designing their new studio line they discussed a number of different ideas, but the key point was that they needed to sound as good as they look.
So going back to basics they leaned upon one their tried and tested EQ sections by way of the 5 BAND EQ featured across their Rootmaster and Original ranges, this EQ opens up everything you need to establish a great tone straight out of the box, with everything at 12 O’clock the NEW Ashdown Studio Range sounds as you would expect from a bass guitar warm yet articulate.
A re-designed foot switchable valve emulated overdrive as well as an FX Loop, balanced XLR DI output (and switchable tweeter in the Studio 15).
The combos also feature a headphone output for silent practice essential for this day and age where listening habits are changing.
