Description

Answering calls from the Ashdown community for a distortion pedal tailored for modern bassists, we designed the Drive Plus, a pedal with the power to strike fear into the heart of the dirtiest of guitar riffs and give our thin-string brothers something to think about.

Double the dirt

Capable of taking your bass sound from a slight grunge through to high gain meltdown, the Drive Plus lets you add distortion to the high and low frequency component of your bass signal individually, so you can fuzz the top end and leave the low end cleaner or vice versa. This lets you sculpt unique powerful distorted tones that preserve the core tones you need to fit in the mix. To get the best results we found that different distortion types were needed for the different frequency bands.

The Drive control sets the amount of distortion, Distortion Tone adjusts its character and Distortion Level balances the amount of the effect with the clean bass signal. 
 
Setting the level

Whether you're using an active or passive bass, the Ashdown VU meter in combination with the Input level knob let's you easily find the sweet spot, ensuring you get the best possible tone in and out - whatever instrument you're using. 

Built for the road

We know the rigours of the live gigging, that's why we build our pedals tough enough for whatever the road throws at them. Metal casings, premium controls and switches, recessed knobs and kickguards to protect screens and VU meters – bring it on!

True Bypass Switching 

We don't mess with your tone. Ashdown Pedals feature genuine 'true bypass' switching for zero-colouration of your input signal when the pedal isn't in use. The Output level control lets you dial in the perfect balance between the effect and the true bypass level.
