Ashdown Acoustic

Woodsman builds on long legacy of acoustic amp design to deliver class-leading standards of vocal and instrument performance.

Designed to last

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

“Ashdown has had a long tradition of creating great amplifiers for acoustic performers,” says Ashdown’s Mark Gooday. “With this latest range we’ve designed amps that deliver superb sound for a new generation of acoustic guitarists and singers and deliver the features they need at a new level of affordability.”

Plug in and Perform


With inputs for microphones and acoustic guitar, Woodsman amps are ideal for duos, or solo singer/guitar players, delivering pure, clear, acoustic tone and essential performance tuning features, including phase reverse and feedback eliminating notch filters.

Woodsman Range

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 increased full-range sound.
