Hey Mike, just plugged back into whats going on with you through a bass player interview and the hoot page, can't wait to hear this radio show.. I've had an eden 410 for a couple of years now and i felt validated after you started using them, all of a sudden instead of being seen as a hi- fi ponce (we dont have too much eden here in england) i was getting props for using the watt rig! Any tips on how to get the best out of them or do you just plig em in and go? Did you ever try the amps? If so what do y reckon, mine got stolen in a house smash but i found that with an 18" on the bottom my bandmates complained of something called "the choke" where the sub actually made their windpipes constrict (the drummer passed out from that combined with heat at a gig in scotland) i never had the cash to get another eden but im getting a pretty sweet sound using an old musicman sixty five amp, another thing we dont get too much of over here, you ever tried the old MM amps? last thing would be about bass distortion, that constant quest to tear people's faces off without loosing the bottom end, whats your recomendation? Man thats loads of questions i guess but its a rare chance to communicate, gotta say, both your playing and your philisophy of life and bass have been a great influence on me over the years keep at it man, heres no one like you..
