This should be a positive development: Eden Electronics Forum - MAJOR Announcement Regarding Eden "Hello Eden Forum members. A special announcement and press release regarding the future of Eden will be going out tomorrow but we wanted to let you, the faithful and Eden fans know first. "Effective immediately, Eden is no longer owned by U.S. Music Corp. but has been purchased by Marshall Amplification. Yes, THAT Marshall Amplification. "So, what does this mean for Eden? Ive bulleted the main points below, after which is a greeting and message from Luke Green, the new Brand Manager for Eden. o Eden will now be able to take advantage of Marshalls vast distribution network in Europe and throughout the rest of the world. o Eden will remain its own entity completely separate from Marshall. o Eden will keep its USA identity and more of Edens manufacturing will return from off shore back to the United States. o U.S. Music Corp. will remain the Eden distributor for North America. o Key members of the Eden team will continue to work for Eden. o Under the leadership of Luke and with the backing of Marshall, Eden will move forward and continue to grow with its legendary bass products and innovative new products. "And now may I present Brand Manager, Luke Green: "Marshall Amplification is really excited to be associated with such a strong Brand in the Bass market. Eden really is truly one of the few remaining brands in the Bass market that holds any historical value in my opinion, and my first objective is to really look at trying to drive Eden forward focusing on Making Product in the USA again and spending time finding out what Edenites and other non Eden players are asking for from their Bass products. "Although Eden is now owned by Marshall one thing that I was very clear on from the beginning was that Eden must remain a free entity. Both Marshall and I didnt want to see the company get swallowed up into another brand which is often what happens in situations like this. A big part of the deal is that we will be continuing to use some of the current (and longstanding) team from Eden, their passion and knowledge is undeniable and without those kinds of people, driving Eden forward would be impossible. I am also seriously considering visiting some of the ghosts of Edens Past as I think they might also have a lot to offer. I have already spoken to some "important" people about Eden and moving it forward and everyone who has heard about the plans I have were very positive about the things they have heard. "An official press release is expected to be issued within the next 24 hours."
