Ashdown PT60NM - 60 watt Nate Mendel Bass Combo
The Ashdown AAA EVO 60-10T is a solid 60 watt practice amp combo with a single 10" Ashdown speaker. The 60-10T is a little more complex than its littler brother with a further array of facilities including passive and active inputs, tube emulated overdrive as well as a balanced DI output and tweeter, making it a very practical combo for small gigs and more.
The Ashdown AAA EVO 60-10T has the option for an extension speaker out with its own dedicated 8 Ohm min load jack socket. This can be paired with the all NEW AAA-115T cabinet to transform this practice amp into a gig worthy rig.
The amp features a straightforward 3 band EQ to control the Bass Middle & Treble, but the supplied AppTek cable and socket allows the player to expand the amp’s tonal capabilities.
Download Ashdown's signature ABM Pre App (available via Agile Partners Amp Kit) and switch on the incredible features that you get from the formidable ABM range including Sub Harmonics, Tube Drive, Compression and comprehensive 7 Band EQ, thus transforming this little amp into a tone machine.
The AAA EVO 60-10T comes equipped with an aux mix level control for the line input and a headphone out is also provided for silent practice - just switch on the speaker mute switch located on the rear of the amp. The AAA EVO 60-10T maintains the core tone and features of the larger AAA EVO amps in the product range making it ideal for not only home practicing and rehearsals but also small shows.
Most prominently, the Ashdown AAA EVO Range has been upgraded to a premium heavy-duty buffalo Tolex covering with a stylish and distinctive vintage red grill. The Ashdown AAA EVO Range maintains its build quality and durability but utilizes a new lightweight ply construction that has cut down on the weight... but not the tone.
Designed from the ground up for Nate Mendel of the Foo Fighters, the NM2 is a unique professional dual distortion pedal capable of driving a stereo rig for huge walls of bass sound.
Stereo Sound Sculpting
Taking the signal from a bass, the NM2 splits internally to two Outputs. Each outputs provide the original signal (at the input level) plus their own individual mix of two separate and very different distortion types (one for each output). Because unaltered bass signal is fed from input to the output and the distortion effects are added to it, the resulting sound is always full and dynamic, with the effects adding rich overtones to core sound of your bass. For use with a stereo rig each output can be fed to a separate amplifier and the individually adjustable bass overdrive effects switched IN or OUT for Output 1, for Output 2 or both together. For use with a single amp, using the 1+2 switch means both effects can be routed to Output 2.
Setting the level
Whether you're using an active or passive bass, the Ashdown VU meter in combination with the Input level knob let's you easily find the sweet spot, ensuring you get the best possible tone in and out - whatever instrument you're using.
Built for the road
We know the rigours of the live gigging, that's why we build our pedals tough enough for whatever the road throws at them. Metal casings, premium controls and switches, recessed knobs and kickguards to protect screens and VU meters - bring it on!
True Bypass Switching
We don't mess with your tone. Ashdown Pedals feature genuine 'true bypass' switching for zero-colouration of your input signal when the pedal isn't in use. The Output level control lets you dial in the perfect balance between the effect and the true bypass level.
Capable of driving a stereo rig for huge walls of bass sound.
The NM2 effects pedal is a Dual Distortion Stereo effects device specifically designed for Nate Mendel of the Foo Fighters. This pedal has been designed from the ground up with Nate to ensure the ultimate pedal for Bass Distortion with some very cool features key to the specific application set by Nate from the start of conception.
There is a single Input jack socket and 2 x Output jack sockets - Output 1 & Output 2. Both of these outputs provide the same level of bass signal that is presented at the Input, plus their own individually adjustable mix of 2 separate, and very different distortion effects (one for each output), that can be added to the original dry bass signal for massive bass overdrive effects.
For stereo use each output can be fed to separate amplifiers and the individually adjustable bass overdrive effects switched IN or OUT for Output 1, for Output 2 or both together.
By using the 1+2 switch both effects can be routed to Output 2 allowing the use of Distortion 1, Distortion 2 or both together into a single amplifier if desired.
Because the same level of unaltered bass signal is always fed from input to the output and to this original dry signal is added the distortion effects, you will never lose the full dynamics and bottom end contained in your bass playing.
