    At least I think I did.

    Found a used David Eden Metro at Guitar Center, marked at $799. I talked them down to $699. It sounds great!

    Does anyone else have one? Thoughts?

    Dude...great price IMO. I always liked the Eden Metro's more than the SWR Redhead. The Eden always had more low end out of the 2x10 super combos. Good snag!
  3. Well - that is better than paying $1600 for a new one. I have a 1998 Metro that I bought new. I liked it more than the SWR Redhead that I tried out multiple times.

    I personally think the Metro is a really cool amp because of it's versatility. Enjoy it! :D Oh by the way did you get the included footswitch with it?????

    any standard f/s works. It's only a simple channel switch.

    That's a great price on a Metro. I bought mine used from a GC in '99 or '00 for a fair bit more. I wound up letting mine go to go seprates.

    BTW, GC is not even taking any Edens in on Trade anymore, as per corporate orders. They just don't move off the floor fast enough.

    Good price grab. Once you've gone to an Eden, it's hard to ever go back. Standalone , who'd want to buy from GC anyway? But I can see why you've gone to separates, as have I. Age makes us do things. Got to be fairly young or in good shape to muscle around a heavy combo. But it worth it, if it's an Eden combo.

    great deal. i had one for a few years that i bought new and it was a great sounding rig. two of my buddies bought them after hearing my rig. i used to pair it up with another cab for gigging and it worked out well.

    More than age, it was completion of a studio above my garage, (stairs for every gig) and the fact that I'm gigging upright playing jazz. The Metro just wasn't getting in the wagon with the DB, the &c. So I got a big electric rig to have for any rock fill in stuff that might come up, and to have in the long run, and am starting to get a small head/cab setup together that's more apropriate to the needs of my current band.

    Everyone is running away from semi-heavy combos like the Metro, but if you're not trying to bring a DB around, too, it's really no big deal.
