    I have an Eden Wt1000 Power Amp and one of the channels seems to be damaged, but for some reason the 2 options that I have locally to repair it have not been able to track down the issue (one of the channels is distorted and has a weak signal).

    Has anyone had experience selling a great amp that is slightly damaged? I would completely disclose the issue, I just wasnt sure if people buy something to repair it themselves?

    Might be worth asking for some help over on the Eden forum. Someone might be able to sort you out or point you in the right direction.
    Might not be worth much broken. Especially if the problem is unknown.
  3. Those are great amps but in todays high power, cheap, and light weight power amps environment it may be hard to get any decent $$ for it even if it were repaired IMHO. Obviously, I don't think it'd be worth much broken either. It's sort of the way of things now. Old class AB power amps just aren't in demand these days, even nice ones like that. You still see some old class AB heads with built in preamps selling for decent $$ mostly because of their unique sound... GK RB800, Eden WT400, Mesa Walkabout come to mind. That Eden WT1000 does have some tone shaping ability so perhaps it may fetch some decent $$ after all.

    It would be worth your time to post up on the

    I wouldn't give up on it! I had a similar issue with my wt800 when I first got it. One of the power amps would was weak and scratchy, at times it would even cut out. My tech bench tested it but couldn't get the same issue to happen.

    I believe in the end he took apart the power amp section and reinstalled it. Since then it has run like a champ.... He chalked it up to a cold solder point somewhere.

    Definitely no junk!
    They are not that hard to fix!
