For the acoustic musician on the move, the Ashdown Acoustic Radiator 1 combines a 100 Watt bridged power section, a fully-featured preamplifier and an 8", dual tweeter array driver in a compact, portable and beautifully designed cabinet. There are 2 channels with facilities including a switchable input for active and piezo pick-ups with a phase switch for the elimination of standing wave feedback, an XLR mic input with switchable phantom power, bass and treble controls with a shape switch providing instant access to an optimum acoustic guitar Eq setting, a switchable notch filter with a variable frequency control to tune out feedback, and an all-new digital reverb. Rear panel facilities include a balanced XLR DI output for recording use, or for connection to a PA system, an FX loop and a line / link output.

Ashdown Acoustic Radiators are available in both cherry and black vinyl.
