NAMM 2023: Ashdown has debuted the MF 484 2.N, a 30W guitar amp head that features Two Notes’ renowned cab-modeling technology.

With a quartet of EL84s in the power section (plus an ECC81, ECC82, and two ECC 83 preamp tubes), the 484 promises chiming clean tones, and also boasts a footswitchable boost for extra growl. That’s all shapeable via Bass, Middle, Treble and Presence controls, as well as separate Gain and Volume knobs.
