Looks like a very nice cab. Nice price also... (in Europe)
Is this a sealed cab?
I really wonder if this cab is good. Specs looks incredible, but I cannot find one in the different shops in Paris.
I am looking for having 2 ebs cabs, but I want to know this new line.
Haven't seen 'm, yet!
not yet, but if it is anything like the proline series, it will probably be a bit low end shy, but very loud and punchy!
i was trying a few basses out in århus playing through some ebs all tube head with a cabinet of offset 4x12 i think... i didnt have the volume up past 1 but it sounded nice
For your record, EBS does not make an all-tube amp!
It was probably the fafner. A lot of people think it's all tube!
Haven't tried one. They're made in China, and only available in 4x10 format as we speak. I'd probably be more interrested in a 1x12 personally, but if the Classic Lines prove to be a success, we might expect to see it extended with more cabs in different configurations in the future.
"It was probably the fafner. A lot of people think it's all tube!"
How come? Does they sound like tube amps. I have never tryed EBS amps, but I use their pro line 212 cab and likes it a lot. i Use it with an ampeg amp (mossfet solid state) maybe i should check ebs amps out to...
By the way nice to se so many europeans on this thread
When you play a fafner, close your eyes and just hear the hotest bass amp head!
When I discovered this head, I immediatly sold my svt3pro.
There is only one tube, but it's THE tube!
The Fafner is a good amp and one of the coolest looking out there. And it`s definetly hotter than the SVT3. But you also might have a look at Aguilar DB750, Eden and Ashdown stuff if you are after a more tube-like sound
...now that this thread got resurrected:
This cab is front ported, not sealed. FYI...
i was having a chat with thier U.K importer (who's name i can't quite remember) at the london guitar show this year.
he showed me it with a fafner and it was like a super ampeg or something, very rocky if you get what i mean.
i was surprised at how vintage sounding they are.
it wasnt really my cup of tea, i would rather take a neo over one of those, but that is me personally
just as an abservation it seems that a lot of the bigger amp names are releasing these "vintage" cabs, is it some nostalgia that i am too young to understand or just a different direction?
Vintage = In
I just think it is a tone thing - alot of the tube heads are prized for their vintage tone, so it only makes sense to offer a range of cabs to satisfy this market... some people are looking for a modern sound, and others are looking for vintage. 2 different markets, 2 different buyers...
yeah i guess you are right, there is definetely two very different schools of thought on tone out there.
by the way i didnt say how well made these cabs are before, they are exquisite.
it was a silver plates one... i dont know it said it was a tube amp on it... maybe just a preamp tube
silver face = the fafner - only one preamp tube... but a very tubey sounding head for a hybrid none the less!
Hi good people, I have this new EBS 410 "classic line "
It is a good sounding cabinet. It has a full bodied warm sound, a little vintage in its caracter I would say. This is complimented in the way it looks, very cool vintage looks. Nice thick black tolex, metal corners, very nice cup handles, wheels. The grille fabric is a liiiittle cheasy looking, but what the heck... Only thing that bothers me a bit, is that it might not be as loud as my 2 ampeg svt-210he´s stacked.
I have not gig´ed with the cabinet yet, and that´s where the real test is coming up. It is suposed to be 32 Kg heavy, but my feeling is that it is heavyer than that. I drive it with a Fender P and GK 1001RB-II , and the cab is 4 ohms. It can take all the power from the amp, full volume, but as mentioned earlier it is really not that loud.
