Hand built in Ashdown’s UK Custom Shop, the 22 Head was designed around Shavo Odadjian’s desires. Shavo Odadjian is a multi award winning musician, songwriter and entrepreneur. He is best known as the bassist of System of a Down, but the guys at Ashdown know Shavo as family.
The relationship between Ashdown and Shavo began way back in 2002 and Shavo has been using Ashdown’s ABM range ever since. Sharing his gratitude for being a part of the Ashdown family, Shavo said: “I was hooked by their personalities, they were like family… then they showed me their amps and they completely blew me away. The fact that there’s a solid-state volume and a tube volume on the same amplifier was amazing and I hadn’t seen that before. I’m honoured to be a part of a family company that is not just a ‘run-of the mill’ and I legitimately represent the company.” Shavo has since gone on to be a huge ambassador of Meters Headphones, sister company of Ashdown Engineering.
