    That looks cool. I find that Edens seem to sound best when virtually flat (i.e., everything at near 12 o'clock) and the "enhance" at about 9 o'clock. Yours is near 1 o'clock... and I think that scoops too much mid. The gain should be set up with the master volume set at zero and your bass turned up full-out...hit the strings hard (obviously you won't hear anything, you're just looking for a peak)...turn it up gradually and when the clip light comes on just now and then, it's perfect...then use the master for the actual playing volume you want. Hope that make sense.

    I set my Eden exactly the same way, basically 12 o'clock on all the eq and 9 o'clock on enhance the most any of the eq knobs ever seem to get turned is a click. Works for both fretless and fretted tones.

    I set my Navigator pre dead flat, with not enhance. Then boost the mids just a few clicks for growl. I have found that driving the pre amp gain fairly high yields a much punchier tone with more growl.

    Ive read here many times on setting the master to 0 and raising the gain gradually to set a good volume just as you clip. Now this should work with any amp correct? Maybe I did not give it enough gain but I tried this with my GBE750 and I could not get it to show a signal with the master off. Am I doing this correctly? Now this amp has 2 channels FET/TUBE so there is a master/gain knob for each channel, (4 knobs) then the master volume knob at the far right. Should all master knobs be off then set each channel's gain, the each channel master then lastly the master knob at far right? Or am I missing something here, thanks for any info, oh and I'd like to try out that 800 one day.

    from the gbe750 owner's manual, found at the gbe website. download one;)

    SETTING YOUR INPUT SIGNAL – Use the following guidelines to set your amplifier input stage for the type of bass
    used and your personal playing style.
    1) Select either Active or Passive input gain depending upon the bass used.
    2) Set your instruments controls (volume and tone) where you normally prefer to run them.
    3) With the Channel Gain setting at “0” and your amplifi er EQ positions centered at 12 o’clock, begin
    turning the gain control up to a level in which the O/L LED is illuminating with your hardest notes
    played. It is okay for the RED LED to flash occassionally BUT it should not be on constantly. Now
    set your channel volume and master volume settings for the desired output level (loudness) that
    you wish to produce.
    4) Now, turn your attention to the EQ section and make the adjustments for the desired tone. Because
    this is an active EQ network any large settings of cut or boost will affect the gain level of the preamp
    and the O/L lights at the input stage.
    5) After setting your EQ it may be necessary to go back and adjust your input gain level accordingly. It
    should be noted that the Global Signal Shape circuits will not affect the input gain BUT will affect the
    Master output level and clip indicator if used with extreme settings.
    Note—due to the fl exibility of the GBE 750’s channel selecting and mixing capabilities BOTH channels O/L LED’s
    may illuminate even though you are only playing one channel. This feature allows you to know that signal is active in
    both channels and the second channel’s gain level is set at a predetermined level (by you) before you switch to it or
    mix it in.

    my eden wt800 is always set flat with the enhance at 8 or 9 with the compressor bypassed.

    i change the semi-parametric eq according to the venue that i'm playing in

    I run my WT550 flat, no enhance. If necessary, I'll go up or down a click on the bass to compensate for the venue.

    So far, I've run the WTX-260 almost flat, with perhaps a +click of bass and a -click of treble.

    This is with the Eden D112XLT, which is a somewhat aggressive cab. With a pair of 112s, the bottom comes way up.

    I don't think there is a difference in sound between the WT800A, B, or C versions.
