complimented by the tight low end and when combined with a high-end
studio-quality tweeter, produces a stunning full range tone. The
AA-100 also features a cleverly integrated, tuned top port

chamber to be forced through the handle port, enhancing the low-end
response, creating huge room-filling tones. The AA-40 uses a custom
designed Italian Sica 8" driver.

outstanding; tuned to represent the characteristics and complexity
of the acoustic guitar. Using a very simple and easy to use preamp
featuring reverb in the Cube 40 as well as a very handy notch
filter that helps tame unwanted frequencies and feedback.
The new Ashdown Power Cube is a 40-watt powered extension
monitor that can be used in conjunction with the new Ashdown
Acoustic Preamp Pedal to create a stunning and easy to transport
acoustic rig, or run two in stereo, enabling outstanding personal
monitoring on stage or at home.

effective layout utilizing many of the features of the classic
Ashdown Acoustic preamp. It includes a notch filter, high and low
EQ rotary controls as well as the Ashdown pre-shape feature. There
is also a very useful balanced DI out on the back of the pedal
allowing the user to run their signal straight into the PA for ease
of use and will keep any sound guy happy, no need for a DI box. A
must-have for any gigging acoustic player.
