Just started hearing about this unit. Anyone had any luck with this for DB and / or EB?
I've had mine for almost a year. I use it primarily for electric bass, since it is part of my large rig, living in a six space SKB with an RNC compressor and QSC 2402 power amp, driving a pair of Euphonic Audio VL-210 cabinets.
It has a wonderful tube character, warm yet clean and distinct in the mix, a great combination. I typically run it flat, perhaps rolling off a very tiny bit of bass and/or adding a tweak of midrange. The contour knob on mine is usually at 3 o'clock.
I'm very pleased with my Kern and would be glad to answer any questions you may have.
Hey Bob, compared to these models, how would you compare the Kern to them in quality, from a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being lowest, quality construction-wise to sound-wise to feature-wise to price-wise. You seem like a knowledgeable person, so maybe I can benefit from your input.
SWR Intersteller Overdrive
Demeter HBP-1 and VTBP-201
Thanks for any advice you can give.
I don't have enough significant experience with any other than the Eden Navigator. It is a fine preamp with the usual Eden flexibility, but I see it (and hear it) as more of an electric bass preamp.
heh, your wording confused me. which one would you favor as a electric bass preamp, the Eden or the Kern?
Either is fine for electric bass; I play classic rock and other styles using my Kern.
I was saying that the Eden has more of an "electric bass tone", which makes it less appropriate for acoustic bass. The Kern is the better choice for use with both electric and acoustic IMHO, unless you require/prefer a more aggressive and "modern" tone for electric bass - in that case I'd lean towards the Eden and live with its tone for acoustic bass. Life is a compromise.
Alright Bob, thanks for clarifying that. And true, I can't have everything I want, nobody can, so compromises must be made. Thanks again!
Finally was able to capture one of these and it is impressive...primarily using it on electric at the moment
