Which Eden amp for me?
I've recently discovered the exceptional sound of Eden amps and will be looking for a used one soon. I play in two bands...in one playing blues and in the other classic rock, and primarily in bar settings with 75-100 patrons.
I'll be pairing the amp with my Low Down Sound 4x10 cabinet.
What in the line-up of Eden amps would you suggest I acquire?
Well, assuming all Eden heads sound mostly the same, get the one with the most power and features you can afford. WT800?
If you're looking to go used, of the long standing production Eden amps I've played, my all time favorite is the WT400. IMO, it was the warmest of the WT heads. The WT550 is also a great sounding amp. It has a tighter low end and crisper response than the WT400, but still with a bit of warmth. It's rock solid at 2 ohms. Both have the famous Eden para EQ, and are pretty easy to schlep with the 400 at 13 pounds and the 550 at about 20 pounds.
The WT800 is also a great choice. Lots of power and is on the warmer side like the WT400. Lots of other features like ability to run stereo or bridged mono.
I haven't played any of the WTX line, but I'm sure those also sound great.
If you are a fan of a preamp/power amp setup, the Navigator is a great pre. You could couple the Nav with a Class D poweramp, like a Peavey IPR or Crest Prolite, and have a great sounding combination that is still easy to schlep.
Lots of options!
The WT-800 and XLT410 is something of an industry standard for a reason.
Navigator and either a Peavey IPR or Crest Prolite would make for a great setup.
Great tone and easy to schlep. My Peavey IPR1600 weighs in at about 7 pounds. IIRC, the Nav weighs in at about 10 pounds.
Thanks guys for your input and advice. I do know I want an integrated one-piece pre- and amp so the Navigator is not an option. Please keep the opinions coming and I'd especially like to hear from those with the LDS 4/10 paired with an Eden amp.
