Acoustic music is all the rage now, but the market still offers many more amps suited for electric guitar than for acoustic. The new Ashwdown Woodsman Jumbo is therefore a welcome addition.
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 Ash- down’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.”
Plug in and Perform
With inputs for microphones and acoustic guitar, Woodsman amps are ideal for duos, or solo sing- er/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 fea- tures a custom-designed 8” Celestion driver. The Classic and Parlour model also feature a horn for increased full-range sound.
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.
All models include an Aux In jacks for connecting an mp3 player.
