Since John Entwistle's untimely death in 2002, his thunderous bass sound has lived on, leaving an indelible mark on the history of popular music. Honoring the legendary bassist, Ashdown has reissued the RMP-1 Preamp he used on his final tour.

The RPM-1 is Ashdown's classic rack-mount preamp based on the groundbreaking ABM EVO II. The extremely flexible preamp features a powerful 7-band EQ that can be switched out for clear, unaffected bass tone, a solid-state and tube hybrid circuit that can be combined to serve up a wealth of tones from clear and clean to fat overdrive, and Ashdown's legendary Sub-Harmonic Generator. Additional features include a balanced DI Out, tuner output, effects loop, and a line in. A stunning reissue of the last touring preamp used by the late John Entwistle, the RPM-1 is handmade in Ashdown's UK Custom Shop.
