Ashdown announces the launch of the new and improved range of MAG heads and combos. After four years of the current MAG line we decided they needed a little bit of an update. We didn't by any means look to change the wheel of the hugely successful MAG range but add a little more bang for your buck with the addition of an Overdrive control, this can be easily dialed in on the front of the amp and also foot switched in and out using a standard single latching footswitch.
The Overdrive is a valve/tube-emulated overdrive that is variable from a slight 'edge' or 'warmth' through to a fairly aggressive overdrive/distortion effect. The actual degree of overdrive applied to the bass signal is also dependent on the setting of the input level control. The higher this is set, the greater level of overdrive can be applied using the overdrives own rotary control. Overdrive can be switched in with the push button above and to the right of the overdrive rotary control.
The amount of drive applied to the overdrive circuit is adjusted using this rotary control. The overdriven bass signal is applied in parallel with the dry bass signal to ensure you never lose the full bottom end from your bass. Overdrive is situated after the compression allowing for a sustained overdriven bass signal to be produced by adding a degree of compression along with the overdrive itself.
The new line of MAG bass heads and combos will include:
MAG-C115-300 1 x 15" 300 watt Bass Guitar Combo
MAG-C210T-300 2 x 10" 300 watt Bass Guitar Combo
MAG-C410-600 4 x 10" 600 watt Bass Guitar Combo
MAG-300H 300 watt Bass Guitar Head
MAG-600H 600 watt Bass Guitar Head
The Ashdown line of MAG Cabinets will be the same as they have in the past however they
have all had a cosmetic upgrade, now including the Ashdown double wing logo and NEW
product badge with newly sourced heavy duty vinyl covering.
We are also proud to offer a new 5-year limited warranty on all Ashdown products. We
are confident that our products are manufactured to the highest standards, using the best selected materials.
