"This is a fantastic moment in time for all of us here at Ashdown," said Mark Gooday, Ashdown founder and managing director. "After 16 years of Ashdown and 32 years of personally building bass amps, I am very proud to have Korg USA as our new U.S. and Canadian distributor as this will enable our brand to achieve the level of success in those markets that it enjoys in the rest of the world. We are 100 percent committed to giving Korg and our U.S. and Canadian customers exactly what they need in today's ever-changing market."

"Korg USA has a long and rich history of brand-building, and we're always looking to partner with companies whose product mix complements our existing brands," said Korg USA President Joe Castronovo. "With Ashdown, we are not only able to draw upon our extensive experience in the amplification category, but we are also able to offer our dealers a complete solution for all the major product areas they are interested in.";
