    I have a chance to pick up an almost-new Eden VT-300 for a reasonable sum. I searched TB for this amp and found references to it. I would, however, like to get some feedback from any TBers who have actually used this amp for a significant amount of time on gigs. Is it reliable? Is it reasonably versatile in terms of tone? I play a wide variety of styles, due to the fact that I get hired to read shows behind singers and vocal groups who come to town without a full band. This past summer, I played a music festival where I backed six different acts. I have been using an Eden WT-400, but I want something warmer. I also have an early 60s Ampeg B15N, but I'm getting too old to lift it(+100 lbs). I am currently using two Bergantino 112s. They are a lot easier to lift than a large cabinet. Many gigs only require one cabinet.

    I'm hoping that I can get some useful feedback on this amp. It sounds tempting.

    sorry to piggyback on your thread, but i would really appreciate your opinions on the wt400/berg 112 x 2 rig you use. strong points? weak points? versatility in tone... usefulness in small/med/large gigs?

    sorry, i dont know anything about your vt300... try eden-electronics.com , however i doubt the forum there is entirely unbiased.

    I have a VT-300A, and I have used it a good deal in a band practice setting, but only once in a gig setting. Here is a thread that I started:

    Eden VT-300A versus SVT (intial impression)

    I do think that it is fairly versatile, tonally, and one of its strengths is the ability to dial in a variety of overdriven tones at a variety of volumes.

    If the price is reasonable, then I would go for it.
