James LoMenzo at NAMM 2024

Ashdown Engineering is excited to announce the appearance of James LoMenzo from Megadeth.

James has been a long standing member of the Ashdown family since his time on the road with David Lee Roth. This year sees the release of his NEW second edition signature pedal the MEGA DRIVE.

Designed and engineered to James’s exact specifications, “I’ve been an Ashdown user for over twenty years and I’m both proud and excited to present to you my second signature, Hyper Drive distortion pedal. This one’s called the Mega Drive”.

“Ashdown designer, Dave Green, has taken our initial design idea to another Level with this new pedal, and it’s really something quite unique! If you love a focused edge distortion with the ability to widen or narrow the size and harmonic spectrum of the distortion circuit and mix it along with your bass guitar’s pristine tone, you’ve come to the right place! Now, take this Mega Drive and go out and make a big noise!” - James LoMenzo

“We were so excited for James when he got in touch to tell us about his new full-time gig as the bass player for US metal giants, ‘Megadeath’. The chance to work with James again on his signature pedal and sound was too good to pass up so we got to work on this new pedal!

James has always been a big influence on us as a player, his tone comes from his fingers, we are under no illusion that James would sound like James given any bass or amp, however he chooses to work with us and that is an honour in itself! Here’s to the next 20 years...”  - Mark Gooday.

James will be at the Ashdown Booth #5114 on Saturday the 27th of January from 12pm.
