Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by semborg, Apr 12, 2006.

  1. Sorry but I don't know what EBS stands for. (what does it mean).

    I hope my english is understandable I don't really know how to express my question :meh:

  4. hehe, seems like you not know either :smug:
  5. It seems to me that you should be telling us. Swedish is not a common language for most of us. One could guess that the "B" is the first letter of the word "Bas" which is Swedish for Bass. One could make similar guesses about the other letters. Is their website only available in English? Why not send them an email, in Swedish of course? When they respond you can inform the rest of us.

    Truth, Justice, and the Swedish Way?

    A Volvo in every garage, and some lutefisk in every pot?

    I just emailed EBS for the answer. Of course it's 6 hours later there, so I'm not expecting the answer today.

    Lets go with this one. Seems good. And if it isnt this it should be. Unless the real one is cooler, but a the 'k' is cool.
  10. Anybody ever see the King of the Hill lutefisk episode? (...the man with the bad smell...)

    I don't think the 'B' stands for 'bas' or 'bass'. Why would they call themselfs 'EBS Bass'?
  12. Konstigt att inte någon vet vad det står för.
    (Strange that nobody knows what it stands for.)

    Maybe it isn't an acronym and it just makes people wonder about it... :ninja: The 3 letters do have a nice ring to them.

    Are we guessing, or are we knowing?

    Maybe the founder's name is "Eb", short for Ebenezer. "Eb's Bass Amps"...

    ...or maybe not...

    Here's the email I just got from Ralf at EBS.

    What a coincidence, you´re the second guy to ask that question today (which
    is the first two this year...)

    EBS stands for Efekt Bass System, but we only use EBS these days. Quite
    funny with the misspelling, which I believe was due to that Effect Bass
    System was registered already. All this was way before my time with the
    company though. Some say it stands for Electric Bass Systems, but that´s not
    the original meaning. "

    Congratulations to 808 for having the closest guess.
  20. Cool :)
