On Sunday all eyes were on South Florida for the 44th Annual Super Bowl in which the New Orleans Saints beat the Indianapolis Colts.

The halftime show has become a must watch for viewers worldwide, and this year 190 million people tuned in to see The Who rock the stadium.

The show was an incendiary 12-minute mash up of classic hits, with superb bass tone being ensured by Ashdown amps.

Bass player Pino Palladino uses an ABM 900 EVO II Head to get a supreme sound that has made him a favourite of top touring artists.

As well as The Who, Pino has taken his Ashdown amp on tour Jeff Beck, David Gilmour and Richard Ashcroft to name a few.

Alongside his Ashdown bass amp, Pino has become famous for his use of fretless bass, providing a different and unique sound.ADNFCR-2133-ID-19610463-ADNFCR
