I'd go for a GK800RB over a WT550...little tweaking required!
Ha - Good luck finding one of THOSE these days...

Re: Whats the deal with Eden Bass amps?

hmmm - I guess Im gonna have to borrow and gig-test a WT550 and see how it goes. My pet hate is a rig that sounds balls-out awesome at home, in the shop, in the studio etc and crap on stage. I know every rig sounds different on every stage but sometimes the rigs I've owned have me constantly tweakin...

Re: Whats the deal with Eden Bass amps?

When Eden first moved production to China, there were a few initial teething problems. Also some time prior to going to China, Eden shifted camp from Montrose to Illinois; during that period a few of the models suffered some design & manufacturing hiccups (although the WT-550 wasn't one of them). S...

Re: Whats the deal with Eden Bass amps?

I played Eden for the best part of 20 years, and loved the tone. I have heard it called the ideal rig for an audiophile because of the clean crisp highs and rich lows, but it definitely isn't a scooped tone - the 410xlt is one of the most mid aggressive rock cabs going. I think you ended up with bo...

One of the best backline rigs I've played was Eden. 1x18", 4x10" & 4x1". Rich and detailed, pleasantly coloured.

Tone: brighter than Mesa Walkabout or little more girth than Labsystems Valve heads.
Nice!

Re: Whats the deal with Eden Bass amps?

Fantastic solid state amp with plenty of power and a really flexible EQ section. If you can handle the fairly light for old style amp (relative of course) go for it! I’ve had a WT550 and WT800 absolutely no complaints with either. Very nice sound which has a definite colouration but one I like. How...

Whats the deal with Eden Bass amps?

I remember years ago when I was starting out, Eden were the "go to" amps for good gear. Is it just me or has something changed that? I was looking at a WT 550 and when I checked the reviews, they're not terribly positive. Most of the negative ones come from the home of bass negativity though but sti...

Re: Rant Thread !

NEVER buy a phone case from a company called Punkcase. Their adds are very slick and they make their products look amazing but they are steaming turds encased in warm turd with baked-in smiley turd and deep fried in a turd batter. Their customer services isnt that good either. The case they sent me ...

Re: What bass guitar sounds DON'T you like?

The sound that frustrates the schnitzel out of me is that really clacky, sticky sound that always seems to happen on gear review videos. Even with headphones or a good sound system it's like they've removed the bass 50% and boosted the higher freqs. All you hear is a metric-fk-tonne of string buzz ...

Maybe a dumb D.I question

I've always wondered if the gain control on my amps increases the signal level to the D.I. There are many times during gigs where volumes go up and down depending on the crowd, the room, the environment whatever and Im ALWAYS adjusting levels and EQ to get the sound I want from my amp. Sometimes tha...
