New! Meters Music M-Ears
Meters Music introduces the ‘M-Ears’ earbuds – created in collaboration with U2’s Adam Clayton.
British music and sound specialists, Meters Music, have announced the launch of the new M-Ears in-ear headphones, created in collaboration with U2 bassist Adam Clayton.
The M-Ears’ sound performance was developed in close collaboration with Clayton. Speaking of his creative partnership with the Meters team, he said, “I love the Ashdown team’s approach to sound. I’ve been using their bass amps in the studio and on tour with U2 for years now, and the sound I get from them is superb. So, I was very happy to work with them on the development and tuning of their new ‘M-Ears’ headphones.”
Since 1997 Ashdown Engineering has had a legitimate claim to be the world’s foremost experts on bass performance, creating bass guitar amplification for many of the world’s greatest bands like Foo Fighters, System of a Down, U2 and many more.
Meters by Ashdown Engineering brings every ounce of that legacy to bear in design, engineering and acoustic expertise to create a unique new range of headphones that bring together lifestyle and audiophile aspirations in one incredible package.
Bassist Michael Rhodes, known for playing with artists such as Joe Bonamassa, the Dixie Chicks, Tanya Tucker, and Dolly Parton, uses an Ashdown Tourbus during his tours.

Catalinbread Topanga – Special Edition Woody – 60’s outboard spring reverb tank
The Topanga is a reverb pedal, inspired by the Fender 6G15 spring reverb tank. This unit was introduced in 1961 and instantly had a huge impact on the sound of many guitar bands. A large part of the magic associated with a separate reverb is created as a result of the reverb signal coming through the amp’s preamplifier, which subsequently distorts the reverb, along with the guitar signal.

“The sound of the Underground”
The ProCo RAT 2 is the legendary distortion pedal which has inspired the traditional rock guitarists to find their own sounds for decades, right up until the present day.
The RAT 2 is often imitated, but none of these copies can match the popularity, quality and gritty versatility of the original.
