So about David's old line of work...

Postby Bassballz » Fri Jan 23, 2015 1:57 pm

So you have all probably seen that Eden just released the World Tour Pro series. From what I gather, these may be the first gold-faced amplifiers that David had zero input on creating. Obviously they took his good ideas from previous models, but this is the first line of Eden amps with David not at the helm for any of it. I don't know how I feel about that...

So I love my D.N.A. 1350 more and more every day, but i will try the WTP900 because i don't like bitching about a product I've never tried.

I guess where I'm going with this, did any of you guys get to try these out at NAMM this year? If so, what did you think? I posted over on the Eden forum that I can't tell if I am an Edenite for a David Nordschow loyalist (and I'm starting to think the latter).

I guess I'm just rambling at this point. I suppose deep down I am just saddened to see the last of David's great amps for Eden (the WT800 and WT550) essentially get retired into the sunset, therefore I feel like Eden is just not, well, Eden anymore.

Like I said over on the Eden forum, looks like a mashup of the WP100 preamp and a slightly upgraded WT800. Got some techie stuff like illuminated speaker plugs that can show you what cab impedences you can hook up and Bridges down to 2 ohms.

Don't think I'm going to turf my WP100 and power amp combo though.

You're right. The stuff we all have has had David's hands on them. Not sure where the new "Eden" corporate direction will take us. :(

Where is all this negativity coming from? Always complaining without real facts.
Come on guys, really?

I got old and new stuff from David. I love it.
I will also try the new Eden gear and it will be not that much different.
Some of the designs needed improvement, I can tell as a tech.

It sure does.
I love it best with the 410.
While I liked the 112th with my Eden amps I really prefer the 410 with the 1350.
It just sounds so punchy.

No negativity, Armin. I guess I'm just thinking of the nostalgia of the "good ol days" when David was in charge of Eden and there were some really great products out there. I'm not saying Marshall isn't putting out quality products, just simply the era of Eden that I enjoyed the most, that chapter has officially closed with the discontinuation of the WT550 and WT800. The new Eden of today, I just don't recognize it much anymore.

I couldn't be happier with my D.N.A. gear. I've just found that the only bass products I truly feel I've found "my" tone in, are products that David Nordschow had a hand in creating.

I remember the very first time that I heard a rig that was created by David. It was so powerful, clear and had all of these interesting overtones that I had never heard in a bass rig. Nothing from other brands ever satisfied me after that. I had to make the switch.

Then, years later he launches the DNA line. I knew it would be good, so I got the 410. I can honestly say that I didn't expect just how amazing it would be. I'm probably gonna get the 1350 very soon.

I'm glad that even though the good old days of the old company are gone, David has given us something even better.
