    Hey guys,

    I just got rid of all my Eden stuff....WT-800, 4x10XLT and 1x15 XLT.......and got SWR 750X, and the SWR Goliath SR cab. My question is this: since I havn't used it in my band yet, what can I expect?

    Thanks!

    p.s. we play classic rock and sub-urban original rock

    yeah, I was going into 2 8 ohm cabs and the limit lights were coming on constantly in live situations........was clipping into the speakers a bit too, couldn't bridge into the amp at 4 ohms so I got the SWR for more power. Think it was a mistake huh?

    Well if that was the case, nope. good call. i would say anyway.
     
  5. I may get shot or saying this in here, but I prefer the SWr to Eden for rock/alt type situations. th Eden is nice, but the Swr is gutsier and more assertive. (but pales to the mighty Mesa!:D)

  7. Dude... You live in Rochester and you just sold all your Eden gear? Damn, I'd have happily taken that off your hands for you. I've been GASsing for an Eden rig for a while now, and being able to buy those cabs locally would have ruled... Ebay is tempting, but then I always think of what it would cost to ship that F'n 4x10 across the country :eek: Oh well, too late I guess.

    As for the whole idea of trading Eden stuff for SWR... ahh...no comment.

    Well actually I traded it in on the SWR rig.....it was a 2x10XLT and a 1x15 XL along with the WT800, and I had to trade it to get the SWR setup.

    The difference I notice is that the SWR has more of the rock sound I am looking for....and 750 watts rms into the 6x10 is more than enough power for me(don't want to drown out my drummer too bad, hehe).

    all in all it was a good move.....grinDude... You live in Rochester and you just sold all your Eden gear?

    Thanks for letting me sit in, and try out your new toys last Monday. Nice gear, great sound!

    I don't get too many chances to jam with my brother (the drummer) so that always holds a special place in my memories.

    Its a completely different sound.

    Its rare that Im liking the SWR tone, I have to be in the mood for it and even still it doenst tickle my pickle, but the Eden tone always does it for me.

    IMO the Eden is much more agressive and assertive.

    Just different.

    Peace

    Ahem. You can expect a slighty suckier sound. That said, you could've done worse. SWR is fine equipment used by many, many pros.

    So now that US Music has bought Eden, everyone is selling their old Eden gear? :confused: makes no sense. Oh well I guess it makes for a good buyer's market

    This thread is originally from mid-November, it's just been bumped up several times.

    I didn't tinker with the man's levels or anything, but where he had it set, it rocked. The Pedulla Thunderbolt 5 helped :)

    RobZon,

    it was great seeing & hearing you and your brother jam again.....anytime you're in Detroit area, c'mon over!

    as far as the SWR vs Eden swap, i hadn't heard about the sale of Eden before i changed to the SWR. i think they both have great tone, although different from each other......as they are from the ampeg SVP setup i used to use.

    so many amps......so little time...lol
