    I'm looking for a new amp, lightweight, powerful, clean, loud and with on board comp. These two look good, on paper. Any hands on input on these two?
     
  2. Ive had both.Both nice amps.Eden a little warmer,but the reidmar puts out more wattage than its rated.Ebs is a little sterile

    It seems the limiter function in the Reidmar will gradually cut more and more low end the harder you push it, making for a compressed, "middy" and slightly aggressive sound. And with as little output these amps have, that threshold might be reached sooner than one thinks. The Reidmar also has a rather high "low cut" frequency from the start, with -3 dB at 35Hz. These amps are definitely thinner sounding with a five string than ie. MarkBass LMII.

    the wattage is questionable on WTX, but it sounds excellent and it's very light. Had to sell it because I play with crazy-loud people
