Ashdown Pro-DI

Launching in September 2023, the Ashdown Pro Di is a game-changer for touring bassists. Crafted with simplicity and longevity in mind, it features a robust 5-band EQ with the Ashdown Shape option, providing versatile tonal sculpting. Drawing inspiration from Ashdown's renowned ABM, MAG, and ROOTMASTER series, this pedal guarantees a professional-grade performance when you can't rely on backline gear.
The valve-emulated overdrive, complete with drive mix and level controls, ensures you won't compromise volume or gain. With input and output adjustments and a handy Ashdown VU meter, you can fine-tune your levels effortlessly. Plus, the included passive and active input sensitivity pad accommodates all basses.
Whether you need a balanced front-of-house or monitor feed, the transformer-isolated Di output has you covered. A ground lift option ensures optimal performance. The pedal also features a line input with its own dedicated Line Mix control, perfect for practice or monitoring.
Engineered to reduce your gear load, the Ashdown Pro Di is built to last and designed for easy repairability for years to come. It comes with Ashdown's standard 5-year warranty, making it a wise investment for bass players.

As mentioned the Ashdown Pro Di features everything you might
expect from a touring Bass Pre-Amp pedal, including its own transformer isolated Di output providing perfect balanced output for front of house or a monitor feed. With an optional ground lift for using when required. The transformer is hand wound in the EU and has been designed by us to ensure quality. There is also a link out for connection to another monitor feed or alternative output for front of house. Both the Di and Link Outputs are post EQ and are set at a nominal output of 0dB.
There is a line input with its own dedicated Line Mix level
control on the top on the pedal for when you need to learn a part you can plug in an audio device to play along to… Or a feed from a monitor mix and blend the amount you want to hear in your own headphone mix via the dedicated headphone output on the rear of the pedal… So you get the sound you know and love directly to your ears…
The pedal requires a minimum of 9v with 45ma draw centre pin
