  3. Hi all i have up for sale my EBS TD660 including Rack case and 2 x 15 EBS HALF CABS @ 4 ohms + Roqsolid covers for the Speakers. The Amp is 14 months old been gigged once sat in studio for the last 6months in its rack case which is included with the sale the case is 3u. A rackmount tuner of 1u can be fitted above the amp in the case This is a fantastic rig as the amp will go down to 2ohms deleivering full power into the EBS cabs.Here is the blurb from ebs THE EBS TD660 BASS AMP IS THE AMP IF YOUR GIGS REQUIRE YOU TO EMBRACE ALL STYLES OF MUSIC OR PLAYING STYLE. THAT'S WHY IT IS OUR MOST COMMON AND POPULAR AMP AT THE WORLDS LARGEST RENTAL COMPANIES, AND HAS SERVED COUNTLESS MAJOR ARTISTS ON TOUR. EBS TD660 Input Impedance 1 Mohms Frequency Response 35 - 20.000 Hz Maximum Compression Ratio (Compressor) 3:1 Tone Controls Bass +/-15 dB @ 100 Hz Middle +/- 12dB @ 50 - 3.000 Hz, Q=0.5 Treble +/- 15 dB @ 6 kHz Bright -0/+12 dB @ 10 kHz Drive Gain Range 0 - 34 dB Drive Type Solid State or Tube (ECC 83) Speaker impedance 2 - 8 ohms Continuous Output Power Dynamic Output Power 660 W RMS @ 2 ohms, Continuous Output Power 540 W RMS Dimensions (W x D x H) 19" x 14" x 3U (48cm x 36cm x 13cm) Weight 12 kg / 27 lbs A Working horse for pros. EBS TD amps have served lots of major tours - in a wide range of genres over the years. It is the most common EBS amp featured on the World's major backline rental companies, known for it's powerful sound and great controls, that lets you dial in different sounds easily. Natural and true. With incredible tone; natural and true, it reflects the character of the instrument and personality of the musician extremely well. 660 W RMS. With 660 W RMS pure output power it will always rock the house. It is a Tube/Solid Statehybrid bass amp where the tube warms up the sound and adds a nice natural compression when engaged. Full control. The Character filter is a quick fix to a great mid-scooped overall tone. If you want to go beyond that, the EQ section gives you complete control over your sound, within a few seconds and a couple of tweaks, you can go from Jaco-style to reggae-style - and anything in between. Some of the features include: A clever “Notch” function can help you identify and scoop out frequencies causing unwanted feedback with the Frequency control. The almost noiseless Bright filter controls the highs almost like a volume control for your tweeter. The Drive can be set to Tube Mode (to connect the tube) and Boost Mode (to boost the whole frequency range) when turning up the Drive. The onboard XLR output sends a perfectly balanced line signal to front of house or a studio mixing console without the need of an external line box. Extra features. On the back you’ll find the Effects Loop, including a Mix level control to blend the effects with your sound. A Tuner output to connect a tuner rack unit easily. A Line out, in case you need the power from another amp to drive a second pair of cabinets. The Filter Remote Inputs to connect the RM-4 footswitch that lets you switch on and off Character, Filter Bypass, Drive and Mute from front of stage. The cabs are sound excuse the pun with no issues but no longer made by EBS Roqsolid covers come with the cabinets Reason for sale i have recently took a new direction and iam playing doublebass and have a Genz Benz and Gallen Mb800 I use know with a couple of greenboy cabs only reason for sell is to purchase another bass will consider trade but iam only looking for one of Fender's American Originals 50's bass in sunburst. thanks for looking Gary

    Amps and cabs for Double bass

    Thanks everyone for your advice it is much appreciated. I’am going to get a fearless 2x12 and run it into a Calvin 2000 watt power amp then into My rockabilly pro . I also have a EBS micro bass preamp which I would like to try but that will mean finding additional pickups any suggestions as it then gives me a back up if needed Gary
  13. Hi fellow Bass men and ladies After a bit of help I am looking at replacing my amp and cabs to give me more headroom . I currently use a EBS TD660 with two 15inch EBS Half cabs running at 2ohms gives me 600watts I need to keep the overall volume on the amp below 12 o clock on the main volume control so the amp does not start to colour the sound . I use the rockabilly pro pre amp with my Duke Bass great sound but the cabs and the amp are not powerfull enougth I notice a lot of the pros are useing Ampeg SVT Heritage with 8x10 cabs Ampeg cabs but they are also going into a massive pa It seems that 10 inch speakers are the norm with Double bass . Size is not a proplem so two 4x10 cabs are a single 8x10 is ok but there is not a great deal of Top end amps and cabs with a big wattage out there .i don’t want to go down the slave amp route The other option is to go into a powered monitor and then into the pa which ours is rated at 4.5k Has any one got any suggestions I only come up with The TC Blacksmith 1600 Watts the DB 751 900watts the new Vanderkley Amp I think is rated at 1200watts Speaker wise two Vanderkley 4x10 Bareface 8x10 Donot like the Aquila’s Cabs had them before The music we are playing is old school jive ,stroll ,Brian Setzer type of vibe in. 6 price Band so there is a lot going on in the mix Any suggestions and ideas are welcome Regards Beastie
