Mike Pockett Test Drives The OriginAL Series

Taking Ashdown back to the Origin of their tone..

Mike Pockett is a UK based professional bass player and tutor. Since graduating from ACM in 2007, Mike has been busy working up and down the UK as a recording artist and session player.

Mike has played in-front of some huge audiences at some of the Europe’s biggest festivals including the main stages at Glastonbury 2016 & 2017, The Secret Garden Party, Zwarte Cross (NE) and Soundwave (HR).

Mike spent some time at Ashdown HQ and took Ashdown’s OrginAL series for a spin.

OriginAL Head

Whether you’re a new bass player looking for your first bass rig, or a seasoned professional, choosing the right bass amplifier head can define your tone, one stage or in the studio. This lightweight, portable and stripped back bass amp head takes Ashdown back to the Origin of their Tone.



OriginAL Valve Pre-Amp Pedal

Like all good pre-amp pedals, The OriginAL beautifully shapes the bass player’s clean signal whilst offering a foot-switchable valve powered overdrive in a single compact unit. Setting it apart from others, The OriginAL delivers superb quantities of both clean and overdriven bass tone, without one feature outshining the other. Crystal clear cleans and powerful overdriven growl – The OriginAL encompasses it all.
