Designed from the ground up for Nate Mendel of the Foo Fighters, the NM2 is a unique professional dual distortion pedal capable of driving a stereo rig for huge walls of bass sound.
Stereo Sound Sculpting
Taking the signal from a bass, the NM2 splits internally to two Outputs. Each outputs provide the original signal (at the input level) plus their own individual mix of two separate and very different distortion types (one for each output). Because unaltered bass signal is fed from input to the output and the distortion effects are added to it, the resulting sound is always full and dynamic, with the effects adding rich overtones to core sound of your bass.
For use with a stereo rig each output can be fed to a separate amplifier and the individually adjustable bass overdrive effects switched IN or OUT for Output 1, for Output 2 or both together.
For use with a single amp, using the 1+2 switch means both effects can be routed to Output 2.
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.
