Like most companies - all right, all of them - we have a family of endorsers who believe so strongly in our products that they use and recommend them. They . . . well, they endorse them. And we appreciate each and every one of them - especially when they refuse to switch even when offered free gear.
But don't we all want to also know what our peers think? Haven't you ever said to yourself, "Self, that's great that Uriah Duffy uses Eden 610XLTs, but I wonder what the other bass players in my town think"? If you have, we've got good news for you.
For some time, we've had a library of User Reviews of our gear. Most of them began life as forum posts. Now we're going to go a step further and offer a page of shorter testimonials we've received by various means. We'd like to thank those who take the time to let us know how much they love our gear. And we'd like to invite you to consider the opinions of your peers when making a purchase decision. Especially the opinions below!

This is what I just wrote to Mike, at Mike's Chop Shop:
I received the E300T last night, and all I can say is "WOW." I've had some great amps over the years, but this blows all of them away. I think I told you before I've used H*****, A****, S**, F*****, T**********, M*******, and Eden in the past, and this setup blows them all away. Eden has put out an amazing rig with the E300T and cabs. The look is classic, and the sound is what a tube amp should sound like. I have never used the "overdrive" setting on any amp because the tone was unusable, but the overdrive on this amp is awesome.
I could not be happier with this amp and cabs. Thank you for the great deal, and the great customer service. I know we will do more business in the future.
And...in another post:
If anyone is thinking about buying this amp, I can tell you in all honesty, I have never played through a better sounding rig. I know if this band I am about to join starts to do well, I will be buying another E300T. I just can't decide if I want two of the 15 cabs, or another two of the 210 cabs. I kinda like the idea of running one head with one 15 at small rooms or recording.
I'll shoot some photos and post them soon. Now I have to get back to making the neighborhood jealous.

Just to conclude this post I ran the WT550 with the 410xlt on top of my 210xst.. both were 4 ohm and to sum up in say 10 words.

Why did I wait so long before my first Eden amp??
I had plenty of experience with the speakers, but the amps, oh, man, the amps!!
I just got a WT800D from '01, if i remember correctly. Oh, the sweet balanced tone. No EQ needed. Just plug in, 5 clicks of the enhance knob, and we're ready for battle.
It was a sonic orgasm on the first note. The combo of the WT, D210XLT & D112XLT is better than anything I've had before (including a couple 15" and 18" speakers, and amps of twice the "power."
If only I knew sooner....

Thank you sooooo much...I bought a WT 800 and 4x10 cab and since then my life has made perfect sense...crystal clarity even on the low B!

John is a long-term Eden/Nemesis endorser and has played with numerous top level artists and bands. The following is an excerpt from an email John sent us about his recent tour with the Wizard, Todd Rundgren.
I took no chances with my sound. Backline would be rented at each venue, so I carried my beloved blue Nemesis NA-320 head with me (in a very slick Eden shoulder bag), and I immediately informed production manager Robert Frazza of my amplification needs: a pair of Eden 4X10s. Period. Now, as we're all too aware, many touring markets can't (or won't) deliver what the riders ask for. But fortunately, all four venues on this run came through with the right stuff. And so, with the soothing blue light of the NA-320 glowing atop a pair of Eden 4x10's, Bass World was a happy place each night. At our first proper soundcheck, FOH engineer Todd Goldstein marveled at my tone. He walked through the house down to the front of the stage, shouting "Dude! Excellent tone! What IS that?" You only have one chance to make a first impression, and Eden had my back on this one.

I recently purchased a WT550 and D210XST to "compliment" my other high quality name-brand rigs. I play a '62 Fender P Bass (purchased new for $179 - should have bought 10) and a Warwick fretless. I now use my other bass amps to hold my coffee cup while I playing through my Eden, a job for which they're perfectly designed! A lot can be said about the sound I'm finally getting with both basses, but in a nutshell, it's a warm, smooth, articulate, studio-like sound that I've tried unsuccessfully to achieve with other gear. Only one downside - You must be very careful what you play because the crowd (and band members) hear everything. A clam stands out in the mix as proudly as your best offering. Unbelievable amp and cab. Definitely worth the money if you're ready to be really heard and felt. Thanks Eden.

Well I got my VT300B today ......picked it up at the music store, still in the opened... hand written shipping box. Dennis looked inside to make sure everything was there. All was good, nice packing; foam, plastic wrap, peddle, a/c cord, and all the papers. Hooked up my cabinet (D215 JBL K145XLT) and did all those tube amp things that one does. Wow, no dents or marks of any kind, what a work of art. Flip the switch and lights start coming on while the tubes warm up. Fan is blowing so I flip the stand-by and start to play my P-bass, nice tone. I try all the buttons on the footswitch and the knobs on the amp. What tone!!!!! Nice job boys. Old school and modern flavor all in one amp and controlled by your feet. I pushed up the master as much as I could with out destroying my neighbors' weekend. I'll have to wait till Sunday to unleash this mother....I can say this is a great amp for tone and I can feel the power waiting to pump out those notes. As far as tube amps go this is no one trick pony. This tube amp is a must for every bass player out there.

I, too, am one who purchased Eden on a leap of faith, having no dealers in the area with a rig I could test. The gamble proved well worth it as I'm happier now with my tone than I ever was before. Power, tone...it's the real deal.

From elpelotero (no name given) - March 10, 2007
Ok, so I drove to Bass Central in Florida and tested some Edens.
With the 800 I was hearing a lot of smooth tones, but the sound wasn't as flat as I was expecting. When I plug direct into the mix to record, I get a reallllly flat sound and you can really hear the sound of my bass. Needless to say, at this point, I was a little disappointed.
Then I decided to start messing with the knobs. I bumped the treble...not much improvement as far as getting some Warwick growl. Then I went for the low mids and lows EQ as well as the mids knob on my bass. BOOM! there it was! the sound I was after! Nice, thick, and smooth, but with lots of bite and aggressiveness.
By this time my singer had arrived and said he wanted to hear the Eden. Plugged in to the 800 again, set the knobs how I liked, and the smile on his face sealed the deal. The fullness of the amp was unreal. And the bite was all there.
From Dave Gries, Mattapoisett, MA - Feb. 27, 2007
I was hired to play a week of gigs in Ireland, but the promoters overlooked the fact that I would need a bass amp. I thought about renting (too expensive), buying a step-up transformer for my amp (too heavy) or buying a WTX-260. I chose the latter. It fit in my carry-on bag, a small 1x12 cab fit in a large suitcase, and my electric bass was in a flight case. The guitarist needed an amp as well, so we ended up running him through an old Morley JD10 preamp, battery powered, into one of the Aux. inputs on the Eden. We did two big-band gigs (14 piece) and two smaller jazz gigs. The set-up worked better than anyone expected, especially with both guitar & bass running through one amp. Under better conditions, that is with just a bass through a proper bass cab, it's fabulous. My question: Am I the first bassist to use one of these in Ireland? Thanks.
Yes, Dave, you're the first known WTX-260 user in Ireland. In addition, while you are not the first to use one for guitar (more on this here), we think you may be the first to run guitar and bass into the SAME unit, at least on a gig. We just knew folks would appreciate those AUX Inputs! Enjoy your travel rig, Dave, and let us know what other countries you visit.
