I'm currently obsessed with EBS' HD350 head (the sound samples just hijacked my brain... even though quicktime causes my computer to crash when I play them for a few seconds,) but I'm a little put off by the price and the fairly low power rating. Does anyone think I could get a similar sound by combining one of EBS' preamps with a poweramp like a QSC PLX? Does the whole Mosfet thing have a significant impact on the HD350's sound? (if it does, I could go with the HD650 or Fafner instead.) Also, which EBS preamp do you think would be closer to the HD's sound? From what I've heard (which mostly comes from badly translated Swedish reviews,) the EBS-1 Classic is supposed to be "warmer" and the V2 is more complicated but possibly more "flexible". To anyone who's used an EBS preamp: are these preamps capable of dirty tones and heavy distorion on their own? EBS' site seems to state that you can use the filter section of the Classic to overdrive the preamp, but I'm not sure if we have the same idea here. For an idea of the sound I want, listen to the distorted HD350 sound samples on www.ebs.bass.se . Of course, I could use a stomp box for distortion if I needed to.
