    I finally have the set up I have longed for sense I started doing this back in the day's of Chicago's third Album(1973- for you youg-uns). With the purchase of my LDS 2 X 10 neo and it's edition to my setup, I can bleed ears and and actually hear differences between the notes!! No mud, just shake your booty bass tones! One quick note to all of you amp shoppers out there, 300 watts of Eden power is a lot of power, I can play any room in Detroit accept the stadiums with this set up! I can't turn it above six in my house (gain at 4, bass pre at 7) too much pain in a good way! So here it is: Sadowsky Metro RV5 or Pedulla Buzz or (MIA Jazz Deluxe 4-not picured) into Rapco A/B box to Boss TU5 to EBS multi-comp to EBS octave to TC chorus-flanger to Line 6 DL4 (On Furman Pedalboard) to Avalon U5 to Eden Traveler (old origional 300 watt) to LDS 2 X 10 Neo and Eden 410T (origional drivers) Both the LDS and the Eden are very efficient cabs, also I find the effects are mostly used with the frettless. I did a review of the LDS on Harmony central , will be posting a mini review here. NOW IF I COULD JUST GET A DECENT GIG!!!!!!

    Better Photo's, By the way your right GAS is permanent, but I can;t imagine a different bass like Swami says the Metro is "the one" , now that dosen't preclude buying another one someday (Sadowsky that is). Also I still love the Buzz!

    Nice! I thought that you would be happy with your LDS cab. How do you think the Selenium tweeter compares to the Eden tweet?

    A little cleaner deffinently more high end, like I said i had to back it off. I probobly like the low mids better on the Eden and the overall warmth is better on the Eden, but it's a 4 X 10 and weighs more then twice as much! (costed almost twice as much 10 years ago) The LDS has better high mids and a little tighter low end, both excellent cabs, and I would have a tough time chosing if I could only have one.

    To Mr. Turner, Ditto on the Avalon, If I had to start form scratch it would be the Metro and the Avalon, and MJ, the Eden stuffs been with me a long time, and it's just great stuff. That was the first year Traveler so it's at least 10-12 years old, the only service it's recieved is preamp tube replacement! I don't think you can get better stuff unless you spend A LOT more money!

    I agree with you on that. This is the first time in years that I have not owned any Eden gear, and I am really missing it. I'll be coming back to it soon, and most likely the exact same amp you have.

    I was referring to just the tweeters. I have heard some Selenium tweeters that really impressed me.

    As far as the tweeters , the sellinium seems more Hi-Fi and is a lot hotter,volume wise then the Eden. I really had to back it off when I plugged in, as the high end just seemed to "jump" out of Don's cab. There booth very smooth though, neither one seems "brittle", my big hang up with some tweeters.

    I was playing at a friends place wednesday in a jam and noticed something else not only is this thing loud, but the LDS using the long throw drivers projects like H#%*@. And, I might start another thread with this one, How many guys mix and match cabinets from different manufactors? I think It might be a great idea in the sense you might be able to get the best of two different makers,as long as they can stack and the impedence matchs, why not? For instance would a too brite and a too warm cab saound great together? I like both of my cabs seperate, but they both have different charecteristics, together I seem to get the best of both worlds.
