    Eden WT-550 Replacement Suggestions

    Well, I suppose it was inevitable. After briefly owning a Glockenklang Soul II - which sounded marvellous, but didn’t work for me at all - I got my hands on this little setup. The good thing is I now remember why I liked it so much in the first place; through my fancy-schmancy 112 VDK’s it just sounds so brilliantly tactile. I love it. I have been really rather spoilt with those cabs I’m afraid, so I think the Eden cabs are probably going to go. They look mighty impressive though. Here’s hoping this amp was built to last!

    Eden WT-550 Replacement Suggestions

    Funny - that's not far off, except I hadn't heard of Ringworld before, haha. It's in reference to me likening myself to a talking monkey and my dad calling me Daneman (similar to danny boy, I suppose). Unfortunately, I recently found out the old music shops around Amsterdam are not doing at all well, (must suppress urge to rant about ice cream shops, waffle and pancake houses and criminally priced cheeses) and I now refuse to go to Bax. Horrible place. As a result there isn't a great deal of quality bass gear around to try out. The AG700 is not a bad shout, but my experience with the TH500 has severely cooled my interest in Aguilar. Not that it was a bad amp, mind. It just wasn't for me.

    No - I suppose it could have been a Discworld reference - unfortunately it’s a bit of a weird one that no one will ever get that I decided on in a moment of whimsy, and one I’ve since come to regret slightly, haha... I’m interested in why you might think that, though. In the meantime I’m thinking about getting a compressor to help out a bit with the Genz Benz. Does that make sense?

    Oof. If that were to pop up near enough, I’d jump right on it. Heehee, I should probably clarify; that’s a smidge above my station. It’s so easy to get carried away.

    Cheers! I noticed it, but it’s a bit far away, unfortunately. 😅

    Interesting, that’s quite similar to the WT-550.

    Eden WT-550 Replacement Suggestions

    Cheers guys. Those look very good indeed, although it seems availability might be an issue... (the Handbox doesn’t seem to be available at all?) The Orange seems rather tempting for the money, but I feel slightly apprehensive about the lack of a gain knob. And I know it’s really shallow, but I’m getting slightly nauseous picturing it on top of the red baffles of my cabs. 😝
  8. Hi all, This turned out a bit longer than I intended, so TL;DR: What might be a worthy replacement for my beloved, but currently knackered Eden WT-550? Max... say, £650/€750-ish? Earlier this year, my trusty Traveler started to show early signs of a few drifting components. Intending to be safe rather than sorry, I decided to have it serviced by a reputable amp builder here in Holland. Unfortunately, it never sounded right to my ears since. I’ve taken the amp back to the shop a few times and I believe they honestly did the best they could - but the magic is gone. I believe they may have “improved” some of the voltages in the preamp (from a technical perspective), but that’s a bit of conjecture on my part. So what would my fellow BC’ers suggest as a good replacement for the WT-550? The obvious solution is holding out for another one, but unfortunately they are quite rare round these parts, and I’ve seen some ludicrous asking prices. I picked up an Aguilar TH500 recently, but I preferred my previous backup, so I quickly sold it on. Effectively my go-to is now my Genz Benz Shuttle 6.2, which has the clarity and the punch, but lacks the chocolate-y richness and the authority of the Eden... I’m interested in the Genzler Magellan 800, but I think I’d prefer class A/B and it’s just a bit too expensive. So what do you think? Any suggestions much appreciated! Thanks for reading!

    Cheers, I'll definitely take a look at that!

    Heehee, yes, quite... Too bad, though. But then these things are never timed well, are they. Thanks for helping me make my mind up!

    Cheers Si, that's a helpful bit of insight. Pretty sure it's just a few worn-out components, but I don't think I'll bother. I've wasted enough time and money getting my WT-550 serviced. Thanks!

    Mackie Onyx

    Hey guys, My Mackie Onyx 1620 had already been relieved of its recording duties, but it still worked fine as a mixer. Unfortunately, the other day during rehearsal a fierce wind started blowing through the speakers. Does anyone know if it might be something that can be repaired? It has served me well, so my guess is it's time to scrap it - but my bank account is hoping I'm wrong. (Already having to replace my beloved WT-550! ) Thanks for reading! Dan

    TH500 idiots guide??

    Same here. Which has me thinking of moving it on. I just can’t seem to find a sweet spot. I think what I’m missing is the low mid bump of the DB cabs. I think it sounds best without any drive, although it can sound a bit dry. All in all, I still think it’s a great little amp. Very powerful if you need it to be and the DI is just brilliant.

    Help with Zoom H5

    FYI I managed to salvage a good portion using PhotoRec/TestDisk 7.1. Chuffed to bits.

    Help with Zoom H5

    Hey guys, Over the weekend, I recorded a couple of bands with a brand new Zoom H5. It sounds brilliant, but the recording of the main event seems to have failed. I recorded two bands (just under 4 hours) and the file is 0KB. When I stopped the recording I let the machine do all necessary thinking before shutting it off, but it still failed. So far I've pieced together it might be something to do with an incorrect header, and that the recording might be recovered by importing it as raw data, but I just cannot get it to work. Any ideas?
