Ashdown announces B-Social Bass Amplification and Entertainment System at NAMM 2015


Ashdown has released its first ‘desktop’ amp exclusively for bass players. Designed to look good in the home or studio, the B-Social features a full 75W of stereo sound in addition to wireless and USB DAW connectivity.


Straight out of the box, B-Social delivers signature Ashdown bass tone via a powerful 75W stereo amplifier and two custom dual concentric 5” drivers, specifically designed to deliver punchy low-end in the most compact enclosure. Unlocking further tonal possibilities, the App-Tek socket allows players to access the ever-growing range of amp sim and effects apps available on Smartphones and devices, including Ashdown’s very own ABM Pre App.


Allowing the bassist to roam at home, B-Social also features Bluetooth connectivity and a transmitter that lets the bass connect wirelessly to the amp for cable free jamming. Bluetooth connectivity also enables audio streaming from any compatible music player.


Adding a new social dimension to the amp, the B-Social includes a second input so the bassist can play along with another bass player or guitarist – electric or acoustic.

MNJ has been writing articles, reviews and blogs for the DV online magazine for the last five years or so. Although he has been playing for longer than he cares to remember and is now officially an 'oldie', he is still mad for all things guitar related and when not busy in his studio he's learning new songs, practising bluegrass guitar, painting his house and taking his dogs out. If banished to a desert island and forced to take only one guitar he'd take a Les Paul. Actually, make that several Les Pauls, a Strat, a Tele, an ES-335, a vintage Martin and some boutique amps. Battery powered obviously.
