I'm considering a WT550 as an upgrade for my current rig. I'd like to hear some of your opinions on the WT550 vs. the Walkabout. My current rig is the Walkabout into a 4 ohm Schroeder 1212. For large gigs I drop the Walkabout into a rack and use it as a pre amp into a Mackie 1400i. This works for me, but it is super heavy and I never use all 1400 of the Mackie's watts. I'm getting sick of lugging it around and would like to know if the 550 will be able to replace this set up. I really like the size and weight of the 550, the price and availability of used ones, and the fact that I can run it at 2 ohms if I get another 4 ohm cab. FWIW, I play in a 12 piece funk/disco dance band. Sometimes I have PA support, and sometimes I don't. I'm not competing with huge guitar amps, but I do have to keep up with a 4 piece horn section. My Questions: 1. How does the Walkabout tone compare to the Eden tone? I have only played through Eden gear in stores. I liked what I heard, but gear always seems to sound totally different at a gig. I like the thick "buttery" low end that I get from the Walkabout and would hate to give that up. Has anyone ever A/B'd them? 2. Will the WT550 be much louder than the Walkabout alone (300W vs. 500W @ 4ohms) ? 3. Will the WT550 (500W @ 4 ohms) be enough replace the Walkabout & Mackie combo (1400W @ 4 ohmns) ? Keep in mind that I never have to push the Mackie to get the volume I need. 4. Should I just shell out the dough and find a WT800B or will the WT550 cut it? Thanks, Zac PS: I'm so jealous of you guys that live near BassNW, Bass Central, ect. and can actually try out gear before you buy it! I've been searching the Boston area for some Eden gear but have yet to find any. Damn shame.
