He told me that all the cool kids were getting them... the new Eden 210 XST. I'll admit that it was quite a bit over my price range and that I wasn't going for Eden at all, originally. I was planning on getting the Aguilar GS-210 and perhaps a 115 eventually. The idea was a cleaner sound but with some fatness. However, after a very little amount of convincing, I settled on the XST. I've fiddled around for about an hour at low volumes and it seriously delivers. It warms up my SWR nicely. It just really handles the bottom end nicely and thusly makes me a happy man. I haven't had it cranked for too long (neighbors)...but the few minutes with the volume at 1:00 shook some leg hairs . True test will be at practice I guess. Handles the big B of the Lightwave quite nicely. The fact that it's 450 Watts helps in that department too. Joker compared it to the Aguilar GS210 and tone wise, it's the same ball park, but when it comes to volume, the XST wins it (sounds a tad bit fatter in the lows IMO). Overall so far, I'm a very happy camper and Gard and the boys at BC get another A++. Shipping was almost too fast (waking up by lifting a 70 lb package at 8:30 am is not the best idea ). I'm sure this isn't the best review but I just thought I'd share . Gard - I hope the dark secret of my screen name is safe within your hands .
