We feel that Eden is a great strategic fit within our Marshall Amplifier line and therefore we have the opportunity to increase the Eden brand’s presence worldwide. We are prepared to invest in the development of new products and to expand the awareness of the brand.”

    Barry Ryan, President of US Music Corp added, “The sale of Eden Bass Amps to Marshall will result in more resources being dedicated to the brand and that will translate into a continually improving and evolving line of Eden Bass Amp products.

    I'm glad I already own my Eden equipment.. I'm curious to see how much the new stuff is going to suck.

    Old Eden was great stuff. Too bad it was sold to anyone. Used to be made just a few hundred miles from me. I went to Genz Benz.
  6. While I appreciate that David is doing amazing amps/cabs under the DNA product name, I would love to see him take back the Eden line and give a big you-know-what to the big corporate crap. The "real" Eden equipment is some of the the best sounding bass amps/cabs. We need it back.

    Me too....I own a pre-Fender SWR Workingman's 15. Great amp and built like a tank. The new Fender/SWR amps...not so much...

    Good luck to Eden, I've always lusted for one of their rigs!

    Second to none... Instead of buying a new Chinese made 610, I picked up a 210 to slip in between my head case and 410... Best decision ever.
