I just picked up an Eden N28S this morning in a trade for a guitar I was selling. It puts out 120 watts @ 8ohms, 170 @ 4ohms. After reading all the reviews I could find, it seemed like it should be a nice amp. Unfortunately, when we met this morning to do the swap, we were not in a place where I could really crank it up. Now tonight I got the chance to set it up at home and I'm not so sure about it. It sounds great up to about 4 on the master. Anything above that and low notes distort the speakers. Granted, they are 8s, but then I plugged in a different 8 ohm cab with a 15 and it was distorting too. Does this amp really have little headroom? It only seems to be happening on lower notes. I wanted to use this as my stage monitor with my new band. We run everything direct - guitar is using a Line 6 amp and drummer uses a Roland TD20 kit - and use a sizable PA and monitor system. 75% of what we hear on stage is coming from them monitors and side-fills. But, I still want the option to crank the amp up a bit if I need a bit more of myself on my side of the stage without having to put more in the monitors if everyone else is happy with the monitor mix. But I'm barely loud enough for home let alone anything else. What's up with this?
