I bought an EA iAMP800 from George Ganakas at www.bassgeardirect.com.au the other week and it is incredible. When I heard that George was bringing them out I was very excited and got in contact with him soon after. He brought an iAMP800 and NL210 for me to check out, both were amazing but unfortunately my bank account wouldn't have liked me very much if I got both but I just had to have the iAMP. I've gigged with it a few times since on both slab and upright, using a Scheoder 1212, doing a fairly loud rock(ish, I don't like using genres, they tend to get stereotyped) gig using my G&L L2000 and fretless CIJ Fender Jazz '62 reissue. From the first note I hit, I knew this rig meant business. I've never really been happy with my live sound before with other rigs, it's always sounded kind of muddy. The iAMP cut straight through and I've never had so much clarity and definition. A friend of mine who was at the gig (also a bass player) did a bit of a walk around while we were playing to see what it was like around the room. He said that even when he got as far away as he could from the stage and the PA was giving up, the bass was still crystal clear. I also used it for a quieter folky gig at The Basement were I used fretless and upright. They both sounded beautiful and I got quite a few comments on how good my sound was. As I'm sure a lot of you know, it's not easy to get a good amplified upright sound. The "tone shaping" (EQ) is probably the easiest I've used. George is a great guy with some great gear (and since your dealing directly through him, the distributor, it's a whole lot cheaper, and better IMO, than the competitors). He brought the gear a long way out to me so I could check it out, without even the promise of a sale. Check it out at bassgeardirect.com.au.
