Ashdown Announce Nate Mendel Signature Bass FX Pedal

Ashdown Announce Nate Mendel Signature FX Pedal
Foo Fighters' Nate Mendel Signature Bass Effects Pedal
Ashdown have revealed the NM2, a Double Distortion pedal designed specifically for Foo Fighters Bassist Nate Mendel.

Nate wanted a pedal he could rely on for his touring sound, providing a simple grinding boost as well as kicking in to a full-on monster drive when required. The NM2 does all of this, as well as providing the option of an additional 10dB.

Huge stereo sound can be achieved by splitting the signal into two seperate amps using the flip switch on the front of the pedal.

The NM2 represents a new breed of Ashdown Bass Effect pedals and follows on from the Essex-based manufacturer's first signature pedal, the James LoMenzo Hyperdrive, released in 2009.

Ashdown's pedals are housed in a metal casing, tour-tested for durability and featuring an input level control and a stylish VU meter.

To see what happened when Ashdown caught up with Nate Mendel in the world-famous Studio 606 in LA, check out the video below.
