    Hallo everybody.

    I have an EBS 4x10 now: I'm very very happy with its slap tone, but I find it a little bit too much aggressive, hard and dirty when I play fingerstyle.
    I've tryed many 4x10 but I think I still haven't found the one that really does for me: if they work great for finger, I feel they miss something for slap (the Epifani I've tryed yesterday for example).

    I'd like something Hi-Fi but that doesn't miss anything for slaping: suggestions????

    Thank You.

    P.S
    My amp is: Eden Navigator + Eden Power amp (I like it very very much)

    Well, as you have Eden amplification.....how about an Eden 4 x 10????


    Haven't tried too many 4 x 10s, Trace Elliot is nice...but only available used now. My multi speaker cab is an Ashdown 4 x 8 which is real nice (very portable too).

    Or Aguilar gs410, not so aggressive like Eden, neither clean as EBS. I like its tone.

    Go figure that I feel EBS to be too much dirty :p :(

    I need HI-Fi fingerstyle tone + punchy/Marcus-like slap.

    About Eden 410XLT:
    I've tryed it; it had the same trouble as my old GoliathIII: it couldn't handle same EQ I use on the amp....distortion on mid-low frequencies.

    If you really want another cab to match your eden amp i would suggest the eden 410 xlt. Another possibility could be an EBS amp. The EBS charakter switch on the HD 350 & TD 650 smooth out the agressive midrange very well. I have the charakter button always on and like the sound very much. Honestly I think: Get always amp and cab from the same company to get the best results. Only sometimes mixing different manufacturers will achieve better results.
