    Loud. Well, Pete, you know my opinion on the definition of loud. :D

    I'm sure that rig puts out some noise though!
     
  4. Now Pete,

    Don`t take this the wrong way but: I HATE YOU!:p :D

    Killer rig from hell my friend.

    Fafner and EBS are both from the same co. are`nt they?


    ...but does it go to "11" man!? hehe

    Sweet rig you have there. The GS112 is one of my favorite cabs.

    Looks like fun! I bet you can really shake some booty through that rig!!
     
  8. The Drive control is absolutely essential to this thing's tonal equation. I can get some positively kneecap-shattering slap and fingerstyle sounds out of this thing with the Drive between 3 and 5.

    As a matter of fact they do!! (At least on the latest model the drive control goes to 11). Gimmicky... :)

    what's the Faf like? warm, tubey? tight, DI like? salty with a hint of sweetness in the background? wha? :D
     
  12. Set flat, it's almost too DI-like, and the master needs to go uncomfortably high to get enough volume--I think there's a flaw in the preamp design.

    However, dial in some drive, and it just rips you in half with upper-mid and treble snarl. Diming the control puts you in tweeter-shredding territory, but damn if it doesn't sound good. Don't depress the "Character" switch unless your bass is deficient in low midrange.

    That oughtta do it. As you may recall, the Faf is the only amp I've played that I didn't say Eden was better. Not that you'd care.
     
  14. Hey, I used to own a WT-300. The Fafner's better :D

    Congratulations! Great choice :D

    When I sent EBS this pic,

    ... their (very friendly and responsive) Technical Director advised me that the rack case was too tight for the Fafner, so watch the heat !!
     
  18. I keep an open space on top for that very reason.

    Awesome setup!:D Of course, I'm a little partial, being a fellow Fafner owner.;)

    Same for me, but you need optimal airflow facing the fan on the side of the Fafner, at least 2". EBS actually sometimes recommend creating a hole in the flight case.
