HOT GEAR Ashdown Rootmaster EVO II Bass Amps Ashdown has released the Rootmaster EVO II bass amp range, the third incarnation of the Rootmaster range. With Rootmaster EVO II, Ashdown has upgraded the amps’ front panels with a matte anodized alloy finish, replac- ing the previous polished stainless steel. As well, Ashdown has narrowed the Rootmaster EVO II range down to a single 500-W head, the RM-500-EVO II, and a single 2x10-in. combo, the RM-C210T-EVO II. The Rootmaster EVO II cabinet’s speakers have been upgraded to achieve a greater power handling and now use horns instead of piezo tweeters. As before, there is a three- position switch for the player to vary the horn between high, low, or off, depending on the player’s preference. The range now comes equipped with an onboard headphone preamp for silent practice. For more information, contact Ashdown Engineering: info@ashdownmusic.co.uk, www.ashdownmusic.com. Pearl P920 & P922 Drum Pedals Pearl has added the P920 and P922 bass drum pedals to its lineup. They are designed to be no-frills, workhorse pedals at a competitive price point. Among the new features on the P920 and P922 are a newer, smoother, streamlined single-chain drive, which offers an improved level of speed for chain-driven pedals. Additionally, the P920 and P922 come standard with Duo- Beater, Pearl’s patented PowerShifter function, and are avail- able as both single and double models. They also feature a fully adjustable beater angle.
