    No love for DNA created by David Nordschow, the man who started Eden and SWR?
    David Eden's real name is David Nordschow.
    This cabinet is less than a year old and never left my house. We do not own a cat or dog.
    $1250 brand new for cab, wheels, and cover vs. $700 pre-owned 1 year old...sounds like a no brainer.
    I am selling it because my lay off is lasting longer than expected.

    Local pick up in Eastern PA preferred. I will consider meeting someone. (If I need to drive more than an hour, I will need help with the gas for my Suburban.)

    Price is firm @ $700. It is basically a brand new $1250 set up (cab, castors, cover) with a little dust and 4 indentations in the fur on top from my amp sitting there.

    Shipping is impractical. It will cost approximately $150 and $250 to ship through UPS because it is oversized, heavy (about 100 lbs), and needs to be packed.

    Man, I wish I had a gig in your area coming up. I need one (or two!) of these cabs to go with my DNA 1350 that I have on order... a little over 5 hours is just too far for me with my crazy busy schedule. Somebody needs to pick this up NOW so I can quit trying to figure out ways to make this happen...

    DNS410-right



    From DNA's site:
    The DNS-410 is the loudest, clearest and most powerful sounding speaker cabinet we offer. Four ultra-high power, custom designed 10-inch speakers enable the DNS-410 to stand up to a whopping 1400W RMS to 2800W of peak power! This is the best sounding and best performing 410 in the bass market today. DNA has redesigned and re-engineered the way the speaker and tuning port systems work to give you better output efficiency and while providing low distortion and port noise at very high performance sound levels. The unique tuning system with its matched driver design results in low notes being reinforced at their true fundamental frequencies rather than being doubled like many poorer quality bass systems do. When other speaker systems run out of gas and start to distort, the DNS-410 just keeps on cranking. New design technology delivers chest pounding sound levels while maintaining the very best musicality and overall bass tone quality. The DNS-410 performs flawlessly at every level of performance. The unit is so clean and balanced you can clearly listen to every note and nuance of a complex jazz chord at very low or very high power levels. A custom designed crossover and new low distortion neodymium compression tweeter will impress you with clean smooth upper mid to high range. Detachable tour quality casters are available this unit and on most other models. If you need to fill a big stage or outdoor venue this system will get it done. Available in 4 or 8 Ohms.

    Mine is 4 Ohms

    Awesome cabs!

    Sidenote...Steve Rabe started SWR. David was just helping with cabinet design, and manufactured the early Goliaths. I could be wrong.

    Free bump!

    Thank you for the clarification. I spoke with Dave about a year ago and misunderstood (or forgot) the details.
    Here is some info about Dave from his website:

    David launched Eden Electronics in 1976. In the beginning, the company focused on PA and sound support systems, including large permanent installations and touring rigs. David was the first to bring a three-way time-aligned PA speaker system to the US market, just one of many firsts throughout his career. He was recognized as Small Exporter of the Year by the Small Business Administration in 2000.

    Eden Electronics soon began to offer custom bass cabinets to touring professionals, filling a need in the market. This was the beginning of David’s obsession to “high fidelity bass tone.” In addition to Eden Electronics bass cabinets, David and his team built OEM speakers for numerous manufacturers, including Ampeg, Mesa Boogie and Randall. He also began development on a new cabinet design that featured multiple 10-inch speakers coupled with a high-frequency horn.

    For three years, David partnered with SWR, providing bass cabinets designed, engineered and manufactured by David and his team and sold under the SWR brand. When that partnership ended, he launched the Eden Electronics line of amps and cabinets. The rest, as they say, is history. David’s designs have long been considered among the finest in the industry.

    David left Eden in 2008, several years after the company was acquired by US Music, now a subsidiary of Jam Industries. “Letting go is never easy,” David says, “but it was time to move on to new territory, to continue my pursuit of The Perfect Bass Rig.”

    With the launch of David Nordschow Amplification, David is once again poised to set a new standard in bass guitar amplification. David is CEO and Chief Engineer, overseeing all phases of the company’s operation.

    When not in the lab perfecting new designs, David enjoys reading, golfing, playing with his puppies, and supporting his two daughters’ pursuit of musical excellence. He continues his interest in martial arts, holding a brown belt in Tai Kwan Do and classic karate, although he does admit he hasn’t won a tournament in a while. He also enjoys spending time away from the office with his wife of more than 25 years, Judy.

    David prefers donuts over muffins with his coffee, which he takes with cream and Splenda.

    Do you have any experience with the Eden cabs? I had a D410XLT that I sold just a few years ago, and am now regretting it. I have always admired David Nordschow and his products, and was wondering if the DNS 410 is as clean and clear (and loud) as my 410XLT was........
    Also, are there any issues at all with this cab??

    Thanks,
    Chris

    My only experience with the XLT was in a store a few years ago. It sounded good, but was too heavy for what I was looking for at the time.
    The DNA is clean, clear and loud.
    There are no issues. It is basically a brand new cabinet. I bought it a year ago and it never left my house because the band broke up.
    You're welcome to come and listen to it. I am just south of Bethlehem, PA.

    I have experience with the 210 version of the DNA and the Eden

    If u are looking for clean, clear, and loud the DNA will deliver. Its much less colored in tone than the Eden. OTOH if you love the Eden cab sound and hope to get the same from the DNA, u probably wont.

    I like both and currently own the DNA.

    Thanks, Art, I appreciate the input; I have always enjoyed the Eden/Alembic combination, and (after selling my D410XLT years ago) I am finding that I can't recreate that with a recently acquired Mesa PH410. I am not knocking the Mesa, it's probably the best built cab I have ever owned, with amazing low B capabilities, but my Alembic begs for that articulate 'hi-fi' sound that I enjoy. If this DNS410 even comes close, it may be what I am looking for......

    I am very interested in your cab. Where exactly are you located? I'm in Los Angeles, but will be on tour soon and will be passing through your area I believe. I am in need of a bass cab which can handle the wrath of my old early 1970's SVT. I need solid low end, lots of air movement, and plenty of headroom. Just about every rig I play through farts out, which is frustrating. From what I've read here on this thread about your cab, it may be what I'm after. I've always had a lot of respect for the Eden stuff, and own a couple cabs myself...

    In fact, if you're in the Bethelhem, PA area, I'll be there June 28th performing at the Levett Pavilion Steel Stacks. If your cab is still available then, we may have ourselves a deal...

    I think your shipping estimate in your OP is a little high, especially if you have a box all lined up. I shipped a Bergantino NV412 in its factory box from Milwaukee to Washington state for a little over 100 bucks via UPS. That's a 125 pounds total weight. I'm shipping my Berg 410 for less that $100. Take it to UPS boxed up and have them estimate shipping to a couple of sample cities.

    TB'rs you gotta try a DNA!

    Steel stacks is a cool place. They took a section of Bethlehem Steel and made it into a Music and Art area. They also added a hotel and a casino.
    They left the huge blast furnace which is behind the stage. It is really unique.

    I don't have a box that big. I normally have The UPS Store pack my equipment. They double box it with at least 3" of padding all around it.
    It adds about $75 to the shipping costs, but I never need to worry about it arriving safely.
    My estimate is high because it includes the packing costs.
    I prefer local pickup.
