I'd consider a whole family of amps if looking for an Eden head...all from a similar progression of design...AMP 420, Gibson GB-440, SWR-400s, SWR-350, Eden WT-300, Eden WT-400, and Thunderfunk TFB-420. Just watch the classifieds and/or eBay for all these heads and you'll certainly find one on the cheap. All these heads were basically designed by the same two guys and are all great.
There are multiple SWR 350s with the red face plates that have gone as cheap as $175 on eBay recently...really great amp for the money! The 350 just has one set of semi-parametric mid controls where the other heads mentioned above have 3 bands of semi-parametrics. These heads sound great flat, so really you should be able to get what you want out of a 350. The other heads can be had for $300-400.
After this past weekend of playing out I'm ready to start using my Thunderfunk TFB-420 again for everything except the loud cover band gigs. I do like the Streamliner, but I could see myself maybe trading/selling it for a Genz Benz Shuttle Max at some point...I'm at least curious to see if a Shuttle Max would be closer to the old Eden WT-300, but louder. I won't be selling that Thunderfunk head ever.
