Ashdown announces new Woodsman range of Acoustic Amplifiers at NAMM 2015


Designed for acoustic performers, Ashdown announce the Woodsman family of amplifiers at NAMM 2015, combining traditional, wooden-cabinets with powerful modern features for live performance and recording.

With inputs for microphones and acoustic guitar, Woodsman amps are optimized for duos or solo singer/guitarist and are designed to deliver natural, clear, acoustic tone and feature essentials like phase reverse and feedback eliminating notch filters.

Three compact models are available – 25W Parlour, 40W Classic and 65W Jumbo. Each model features a custom-designed 8” Celestion driver. The Classic and Parlour model also feature a horn for enhanced full-range sound.

The 15W Parlour model features a Mic Channel with independent volume control, guitar channel with volume, bass, mid and treble controls, studio-quality digital reverb, and a master volume.


The 40W Classic model builds on the Parlour, adding a Tone control for the Mic Channel, Active andPassive inputs on the guitar channel, phase reversal switch, notch filter and an XLR DI out for recording or connecting to a PA.


The flagship 65W Jumbo model adds yet more flexible features, including full 3-band EQ for the MicChannel, enhanced reverb algorithms (including Hall and Spring settings) and a transparent effects loop for use with external devices.


All models include an Aux In jack for connecting an mp3 player.

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.
