Why can't I find EBS Fafners in the US?

    None of the US dealers seem to carry this head. Any particular reason why?

    because it's made in sweden, that's one possible reason.

    I think also because it have been some problems with this head. The TD650 is a good choice too, with a little tweaking you can dial in a fafner-like tone

    Ive heard from dealers that the US vendor is a pain in the but to work with and that customer service is bad.

    Consider yourself lucky. I know my experience is based just on one particular amp head, but I had NOTHING but problems from mine.
    I ended up ebaying it to a gentleman in Poland, and I think it is probably still too close to me.
  7. I don't know for the USA, but for me, 2 years of EBS and no problems.....
    Very good amps! Customer service is very good here...
    Fafner is still in the catalog, you can mail US dealer:

    Many US stores (Bass Central, Austin Bass Traders, Bass Northwest, etc) carry and stock the EBSHD350 and TD650... both great amps, and totally reliable. I think the earlier Fafner models had some problems, but from other posts, they seem to have fixed the issue. However, I don't think EBS ships Fafners to the US. The 650 in Tube mode, from what I read in other posts, gets you very close to the Fafner sound, and you have all the hi fi sounds as an additional bonus.
