    Hey guys,

    I absolutely know nothing about Eden products. Never been interested in any of their products before.

    I always to been a fan of GK and ampeg.

    Yesterday i have tried an eden ec-210 and i was impressed by its tone. I'm not good at describing tone, but it was punchy, it had great clarity an some of the sweetest highs i've heard so far....

    Anybody here have experience with this products.

    Is it a solid amp? how does it sounds when played loud?

    Any comments will be appreciated!
  2. I don't have any experience with that particular combo however I believe Marshall (EDEN) hired Edens founder David Nordschow to design or at least consult with the design of that combo.

    I have been impressed with the internal build quality of Edens gear in general lately.

    My only concern with that combo is its 180 Watt power rating. That's about right for a standard 210 cab but many of us find 210's fall just a tad short for competing with a loud drummer. If your drummer is reasonable you'd probably be ok.

    I use the 2x10 format (Acme) as standard. I'll agree wholeheartedly with my neighbour that a single 2x10 will likely not be enough to play a gig. I wouldn't even try. A pair OTOH is a versatile amplifier set up.

    My next purchase is for home practicing not band playing

    I want a combo or an affordable cab+head (ideally 500$ or less) that doesn't sound like a small box.

    I just traded my Fender bronco 40 for an Ampeg ba112 without trying it.... BIG mistake....

    Maybe it was because the amp emulator but the bronco sounded bigger then the ba112.

    What a surprised!!! Larger cab, larger speaker, more watts and the ampeg sounds smaller than the tiny fender bronco 40....

    Well the Eden is certainly a good combo for home practice. It would be good for band practice too, but out of the reviews i've read, they all had drummers playing electric kits, not the big acoustic wood ones.

    I tried one yesterday, along with the new ampeg BA-115 & a tc electronic 2x10. So here's my verdict on this Eden EC-210: I like it. But it's at war now with the ampeg BA-115 too. I love the Eden's capability tone wise. The controls are pretty much everything you need, and more. To me, the mid sweep and the enhancer are the biggest benefits overall. The Mid sweep, to me, acts like a hi and lo mid comtrol in one knob. It affects the midrange you have set with the mid knob prior. Enhancer was a great boost in everything while maintaning clarity. Playing effects through it sounds quite clear too. You maintain that low end and clearness, even with an effect (be it distortion, chorus, etc)

    Ba-112 isn't the best ampeg combo. Maybe you can trade it back, or just sell it
