WT800 / LMT800 / TC RH450 / TC RH750...help?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by monkgotgroove, Jun 5, 2011.


  1. Dilema...

    Option 1:I found a WT800 for $600. I played it, sounds awesome, more power than I'll need for the foreseeable future.

    Option 2: MB LT800 - I love the tone it's $80 more (same power at 4ohms as the Eden - but can't kick it up to 8ohms) - but again, I like the tone better.... so far

    Option 3: I hear great things about TC's heads, but they're nowhere to be found where I live - I love the idea of the presets, the tuner, the pedal option, & their tube... but I can't play it anywhere.

    So, as a long time lurker, first time poster, I'll ask if anyone has any thoughts on which option would be best - I play a five string active/passive & a variety of styles - funk/jazz/jamband..

    I'll also welcome some cabinet thoughts if anyone has them!

    thanks!

    I really like my RH450. It doesn't have a tube (and neither does the RH750 or the Blacksmith, or the BH500, for that matter), but "Tubetone", an emulator, which for my money does a great job. Hard to beat them for features, but they do have a "voice" which you will like or not. Lots of descriptions of their tone in various threads, but hard to write a cheque on that basis. I bought mine unheard, and consider myself lucky.

    The Eden WT800 is a proven road-warrior. That's my recommendation!!!

    I am comfortable with the Eden myself for live work; no criticism of the other choices is intended.
     
  5. Much appreciated on the replies - I've heard such great things on the RH450 / RH750 but just can't make the plunge w/o hearing it - I'm leaning towards the WT800 (it's a "C") which I hear has had problems? Any thoughts on that?

    get the eden and put some money aside incase it gives you trouble. fixing it would be well worth your $$$$$ vs. tone!!

    A few years a go I would have said the WT800 in a heartbeat.

    Now, I would say a TC RH750 would be a hard choice to argue against. I think you could get close to the Eden tone with one (clean, warm, and with a bit of attenuation of the highs), but not vice-versa without pedals.

    Recently got my Markbass LMT500, and would recommend it to anyone to be honest. Combined it with the two tiny cabs (NY 121's).
    I plug my 70's Fender Jazzbasses and Andre vd End 5-string in it, playing mostly pop, funk, world stuff on them..
    I never really liked Eden's stuff, though I have to admit it's been years since I've tried any of that stuff. Always had the feeling the cabs especially are so crystal clear it sounds artificial, but as I said; That may have been my experience 6 years ago ;) Ears, perception or preference can change ;)

    I used tc rh450 as my first bass amp ever owned, I play with a few bigger amps from Rehersal before
    After 8-9 month of owning it and gig three times a month around school n places
    I must say if u looking at it with kinda vantage non super hifi tone for some smooth stuff , pop jazz or funk, rock
    This could be it , tho I think amp perform fine when slap but to my taste not as great like some gk's or etc but I admit that I won't sell this amp)(unless going for rh750 and tweeter tone which I might when I find used), a must keep , clean voicing , good for travel ( around the world) worthy gear for me
