    I have a chance to purchase a used Eden WT 400 head that is a little over a year old. Is $750.00 a good price and is there anything I should be aware of with this model? I'm a little leery that there is no input pad for active basses as on the WT500. I'll be using it with an Eden D-210XLT and a Peavey 410 (For now, as I plan on getting another D210XLT or a D115XL) cab both at 8 ohms. I've heard a WT500 and a D-410XLT setup locally and it killed. From what I've heard this amp should sound the same except the WT400 has 400 watts in mono and the WT500 has 250 x 2. I need some advice here guys!
    Thanks

  2. I believe that Bass North West sells them for $800 or $750 new.
     
  3. Good amp--that price is a little high. I sold my WT-400 a few months ago for $500.
     
  4. Agreed - that price is high. My WT800 was $795 used.

    Grooveguru,

    I have a WT-500 in excellent condition that I'd love to sell you.

    A few months ago, I was quoted $900 for a new WT-600. $750 sounds too high for a used WT-400.

    The price is a little high, IMO, but the WT400 is a great amp! First of all, the input is padded, you just pull out the level control rather than punching a button. Secondly, this amp is, to my knowledge, the lightest 400 watt amp on the market. It's a pure joy to gig with and sounds great, especially driving a 4 ohm load. I usually use mine for small restaurant gigs with an Eden D210XLT or for small club dates with the D210XLT sitting on top of an Eden D115XL. It sounds killer with all the controls set on dead flat. I think this amp is very hard to beat in its class.

    Hey guys thanks for the advice. I got a super deal on a new WT400 from Beaver at Bass Central so I went new instead. I'll have it on Friday, review to follow shortly.

    Greats guys at Bass Central. Make sure to respond with what you think of it. :)

    I got my Sterling from those guys. Gard and Neal post a significant amount on these boards. :)
     
  17. Right on! Great amp, that WT400. The portability thing really is quite incredible. There's a carrying bag available for the amp that makes it extremely easy to fit into tight spaces. Here's a web page I made when I was using the WT400 (I moved up to an Ashdown ABM900 cause of the power); I fit my entire rig into the trunk of a Nissan 240SX coupe!
