Check out our overview of the Eden WT550 Traveler Hybrid Bass Amplifier Head:
Since their beginning as a custom builder for professional artists and manufacturers in 1976, Eden Electronics has had one goal in mind: To build the highest quality bass amplification equipment possible. Their goal is truly realized with the David Series bass enclosures and Professional Amplification.
From the beginning, the key to Eden's success was the development of high quality, innovative designs, coupled with the best possible quality control through in-house manufacturing of all key design elements. Each component in the Eden David and World Tour Series is hand built and tested in their factory complex.
At Eden, each cabinet design begins its life as a CAD model. Sophisticated relationships between speaker and cabinet size, air movement and baffle design are first designed with the assistance of specialized computer simulations. While CAD has revolutionized cabinet design, nothing replaces the trained human ear. Each Eden cabinet is carefully evaluated for sonic detail and voicing by their staff and professional bass players in real-world situations. The result is a marriage of technology and pure musical considerations: the Eden David Series bass enclosures.
All Eden enclosures are constructed with 5/8" thick void-free plywood with full dado and rabbet jointing. Massive internal bracing prevents vibration and keeps the sound deep, tight and clear. Exclusive Eden Cast Frame loudspeakers and Eden Cast Bell ultra-low-distortion tweeter horns are designed, hand-built and tested in their own factory.
True to Eden's goal of providing the professional bassist a no-compromise solution to bass amplification, the hand-built World Tour Series amplifiers utilize the finest materials and highest quality control of any system on the market today. The exceptional tone quality of the World Tour Series is the result of a marriage of traditional vacuum tube technology with the reliability of modern solid-state devices. The Eden design philosophy is at the heart of their sonically superior hybrid design. Maximum reliability in the amplification of natural bass sound without unwanted sound coloration.
At the heart of the power section is Eden's massive toroidal transformer which provides the World Tour Series with more consistent regulation and sonic quality with less weight than traditional transformer design. For maximum rigidity and rejection of unwanted electromagnetic interference, Eden Amplifiers utilize a unique one-piece main chassis made from a single piece of heavy aluminum plate with 18 gauge steel chassis covers. Lock washers on all the screws prevent loosening from vibration, while on the job or on the road. In the unlikely event of an operational problem, Eden's state-of- the-art modular electronic construction allows for easy repair and simple upgrades. All World Tour Series amplifier systems come standard with rack mount kits, easily selectable AC voltages for international use and a rock-solid two-year world-wide warranty.
Finally, Eden believes that their world-class innovative products are only the beginning of their story. Since their inception, Eden has built an unsurpassed reputation among players for their excellent customer service. They thank you for choosing Eden Amplification and are certain you will find Eden products to be technically superior, with an unsurpassed musical quality. More importantly, you will find the staff at Eden to be your partner in your quest for sonic excellence and true bass tone.
