    I'm currently using an Eden WT-500 with my Eden 210XLT (which i love). While up at the Lakland factory I had the opportunity to play through an Ashdown (EVO 500?...not sure), but that amp sounded absolutely wonderful. I was wondering if any of you have heard/played an Ashdown through an Eden cab, preferably the 210XLT. I keep thinking that the Eden/Eden combination has too much of a sterile sound for my tastes. I'm open to other ideas about a different amp as well----any suggestions out there? (btw, I playing an MTD 535 and the Cort/Elrick JP5).

    I tried my Ashdown ABM500 EVO through a couple Eden XLT cabs. I tried both the EDEN 410XLT and the EDEN 210XLT. The Ashdown sounded great and possessed its characteristic warmth and tubey goodness with excellent mid growl. I liked the 410XLT better, but I'm used to a cabinet that size. My standard rig is the Ashdown ABM500 EVO and a Bergantino HT322 cabinet. (1x12 and 2x10's with Horn)
