anyone know any amps similar to the Fafner in quality and tone ?
Well i found out why the Faner is no longer availavble in the US. Apparantyl they were given to voltage spikes that obviously would be very bad for the amp...
so now.... I await my new rig :EBS HD 350 with an EB300 1/15" cabinet to go along with my existing cabinets.
I didn't know Fafner's weren't available in the US, but it would explain why I have never seen one on bass central or stores like that.
Anyway, that's too bad, I live in Belgium and own a Fafner, and I must say: it's a great head, the best I have ever played.
Can you explain this? I'm not sure what you mean.
I think he means there's a known defect in the first and second generation Fafners where there was not an appropriate amount of buffering protecting the power switch. I learned this because in 4 years I replaced the power switch on my Fafner twice, both times at EBS' expense. I got confirmation of this defect from Mott (sp???), the designer of the Fafner.
Thanks RAM. So now I find out that my Fafner (grey stripe) could fail at any time. There is no way to safeguard against that? I don't recall seeing anybody ever mentioning this although Fafner's are pretty rare.
EBS has acknowledged this problem; you may want to contact your dealer to see what you should do if there's a problem and how they'd back you. If they give you problems, I'd imagine EBS would be supportive...
I didn't mean to scare you...really.
EDIT: I'd think if you've had it a while with no problems, it may be reasonable to expect you never have any.
