      Comments about Eden WTX500 Bass Amp Head:

      The Bottom Line on this Bass Amp..."Very versatile & plenty of Nice Bass"...I believe in easy, lightweight professional gear that is not based on size or fancy gimics...This has all the EQ possibilities & compressor & mute...I pair this Amp up with several different Eden Cabinets for rehearsal, coffehouse gigs or even outdoors..When outdoors I simply use the DI out to the house PA...I use Eden Cabinets with this Amp because they are matched in tone and most important they are efficient (Eden Cabs are louder for the amount of power applied)...This AMP and 1 OR 2 Eden D112XLTs is all you really need...Save your back and start enjoying the gig...

        Comments about Eden WTX500 Bass Amp Head:

        Sweet Eden sound from a small, light package with musical EQ and a compelling compressor and bass boost. Most of the bells and whistles a pro could ask for like a balanced line out with ground lift, an annoyingly pingy mute switch for the tuner and plenty of signal routing, volume and gain options. I opted for this after trying the Gallien-Krueger MB500, both with the Eden D210 XST.
        Even with the considerable fan noise, the tone is so good its difficult to quit playing. Syrupy lows, bold mids and tender highs at any volume. Maybe a well ventilated, dampened rack will curb the fan issue.

          Comments about Eden WTX500 Bass Amp Head:

          This is the second of my two "mini" bass rigs consisting of a 500w head and a 1x12 cabs. Its an outstanding setup for someone who just doesnt play really big gigs. I always use one cab when practicing, jamming, or doing small bar gigs. The 250w into a single Eden cab is sufficient for most stuff actually. The tone is a big reason to get this amp. Theres only a few amps on the market in this price range including this one, the Markbass, and the Aguilar Tonehammer that sound really good, the differences come down to personal preference.

          Snap-Crackle-Pop

          By Kevin Harris

          from Boston, MA

          Comments about Eden WTX500 Bass Amp Head:

          It's a nice little amp. Powerful enough to push two SWR Goliaths, and sounds good. My only beef as of now is, the awful snap/pop you get when the "mute" switch is engaged. I havn't had a chance to use the "direct out" yet. I have an Eden D210XST also, but the head is too powerful for it. Other than that, it's great for portabilty! Beats the heck out of lugging my racked SWR-750x!

          Great little compact Rig

          By letsgroovebabee

          from Honolulu, Hawaii

          Comments about Eden WTX500 Bass Amp Head:

          for the gig I do, small clubs, private parties, even hotel conventions, this bass amp can handle even more. what i like about it is it's size, features, weight & very compact, plus the tone is better. I also own a GK500 micro amp which is similar, but Eden has more "fat sound"

          Comments about Eden WTX500 Bass Amp Head:

          Just got it early July and just might give my LMK-II a little rest. The mute & pre/post D.I. with volume control puts it over the top. I think I forgot to mention TONE,POWER,PORTA...WINNER!!Have not played with it enough yet for a 5 Quality rate.

          Playing bass for 37 years

          By Cnegley3rd

          from Schertz, Tx

          Comments about Eden WTX500 Bass Amp Head:

          Pros: Loved the weight. Very nice electronics. Good feel to all the controls. Great bass tones. Nice overall piece of gig worthy equipment. Nice user friendly manual. Cons: Crooked,hand painted lines on control knobs. Never could find "my tone" that I'm used to from my Peavey and Hartke amps. Main gripe: Willing to work with finding my tone issue but couldn't get the volume I needed. Maxed out volume controls but did not achieved normally LOUD stage levels. Final results: I would love to try this amp for awhile to see if it could make the corporate gig scene but side by side with my Hartke out in the garage, well...it just didn't compare well.

          Can't wait to turn it up to 4!!

          By Mary's Ghost - Adam

          from New Hampshire

          Comments about Eden WTX500 Bass Amp Head:

          I just picked this thing up a week ago...and haven't been able to turn it past 1 1/2 in our small rehearsal space! Can't wait for upcoming gigs. I have it paired with an Ampeg SVT 8x10 and Line 6 Bass pod for effects and more tones on the way. You should use a pedal if you want anything more than basic...this thing delivers for any style of music probably...I play rock and roll.
