Anyone used the Metro w/ upright?

    Hi all,

    Been toying w/ the idea of picking up the Eden Metro 2x10 - I play both 5-string electric and upright, so I'm looking for a decent amp that can handle both.

    Here's the catch - I work for a music company, so I can score certain amps @ cost... Eden, Hartke, Fender, and thats about it.

    So, while I believe that there are a ton of better options out there for 'doublers', I'm trying to get the most amp for my dollar, and that means getting hooked up at cost.

    Your advice is really appreciated... thanks! :D

    I've never played one myself, but I knew a guy once who used one for upright. It sounded like @$$, but the import of this assessment is highly colored by the fact that the guy playing it sounded like @$$ before he ever plugged in....perhaps this makes the Metro a highly "accurate" setup?

    Right on. Well, I don't sound like @#%$, so maybe I'll be OK w/ the metro... :D

    One of the benefits of using a Metro is having 2 channels to dial in. 1 for DB and 2 for BG. That way if your switching during a gig you want have to fiddle with your EQ. For 2x10 combos I feel the Metro is the best around right now, simply for the variety between channels and the power available.
