Have you sold an Eden cab and regretted it?

    I have gas...both kinds actually, I recently bought an Aguilar gs212 and had intended to pair it with a gs210...this would replace my Eden 4ohm xlt and my thinking was that I would them have instead of a 4x10 and a 2x10 for small gigs, I would have one rig that would be more modular.

    I haven't even been able to hear the gs212 yet, but have had some trepidation about selling the 410xlt. I'm wondering if there are folks out there who have sold their Eden cabs and then regretted it later? I bought it new like 12 years ago in Dallas and I've played some really big gigs with it and it's always held up. But I'm finding I want to purge gear and change things up, just because I'm getting bored..which I've never done before. I have a Crest CA-6/Demeter vtb201s/Sansamp RBI for reference.

    I had an Eden Nemesis 115 combo (250w blue) that I regret selling. Granted it wasn't big enough for what I was doing at the time but I really miss the great tone I used to get with it. It was deep and warm and fit in the trunk of my Civic coupe.
    If you don't have to get rid of one than you should keep it. Wrap it up and store it for a while until you decide whether you like the other one or not.

    Yeah I had a CXC210 for a while. it was a great cab for my use - church gigs - but when we moved I had no use for it. So I still have no use for it but I loved the sound of it.

    I totally regret selling my Nemesis N28S combo, I didn't need it when I sold it, but I've come to realize it was probably the perfect practice amp for me.

    I had a 4ohm 212XLT Eden cabinet that I had gotten as a single cab to handle basically any gig, which it did well. Sold it when I thought I wanted to go a different direction with things, and really wish I still had it. Now I have a Genz Benz NeoX212T and I am really digging this thing, so I won't make the same mistake, but every now and then I see a 212XLT for sale and really start to drool!!!
     
  6. Nope... I like my Eden cab. (D210 xlt) Won't sell it. So, I will never have to regret selling it. :D

    Eden Nemesis RS115 Combo and matching extension cab. That thing sounded killer.

    They goofed up with the RS115 combo. All of the other combos were 4 ohm with a series out so you could add a cab (410 212 etc). They made the 115 combo 8ohm with a series out instead of parallel so you ran the combo at 16ohm with an extension. It dropped the wattage to almost unusable. I would have kept it if it wasn't for that and the side mount handles. Killed the back, but the tone. My goodness the tone.

    Nope. Never owned one to be able to sell, but if I did, I would surely sell it ;)

    I had a great 410 XLT back before Eden was sold. It was a great cab and I ran it with a Navigator Pre and power amp. At the time I was in the Army and lived in a 2nd floor apt.... that was a no go the first time I tried to bring it home at 2AM. Traded it for two SWR Goliath Jrs. Dont regret getting rid of it but it was a great sounding rig..... I would get another now that I live in a house but with an 810, 2 410's and a 210 (all SWR Goliath Series) I think I am good.

    Sorry guys...I was just kidding...not a fan but a lot of people like them, so if you're one of them and you think you'll want to use it again, keep it.
     
  13. I regret selling my wt405, but not enough to buy another one
     
  14. I sold my Eden 210XLT cab a few years ago, and I don't miss it at all. The sound was ok, but just the friggin' cab weighed in at over 60lbs!! My Mesa Walkabout Scout combo weighs in at under 40lbs—and it sounds a hundred times better!!

    I sometimes forget that I ever owned the Eden.

    I do, however, regret selling my trusty little all tube Fender Bassman 20 combo.

    Had two 410XLT's, sold 'em because the tweeters went out in both of them and they weren't even being driven hard. Went and bought a Randall V410XL(800watts@ 8ohms) and it blows the Edens COMPLETELY out of the water......who'd of thought? Getting another one next month

    I'm going to say yes. I like the way they sound. I haven't played through aggies, though. I understand why you're bored. It's happened to me plenty of times. It's all part of the journey ! The good news is you can always pick another one up used for a few hundred as I'm sure you know.

    It's TRUE, and I am still tripping a little. I actually went to try out a GK1001RBII head. When I got to the music store there was this young kid playing though the head...hooked up to the Randall. I had to do a double take and check my ears, it was just amazing, clean, thick punchy and LOUD with a sweet sounding high register. I mustv'e played at LEAST 8 basses through it from high end to dirt cheap before I could believe it, I even plugged up other heads through it. A Trace Elliot and a Carvin BX500...still BANGIN'...I had to take it with me. Had it for about a month now and totally satisfied. If you're not into hi-fi sounding cabs, its not for you...but Edens ARE very hi-fi sound soooo....

    I use to own a lot of Eden cabs. I got tired of dealing with the POS casters so I got rid of them and went with a brand that actually cares about their products.
