Eden was there!
« on: January 09, 2012, 06:11:32 PM »
This horror story begs to be told although it does not involve Eden but my Eden Rig was in the vehicle so anyway about 7 or 8 years ago, the band I was with was leaving a gig in San Francisco. The guitar player put his 1972 black Les Paul Gibson on the roof of this big Dodge Polaris because he wanted the guitar to go on top of the speakers. I safley loaded my Eden gear into the trunk and jumped into the car to try to find room for the P.A. head. My guitar player jumped into the car to drive and decided to take the coast hiway back home and the fog was so thick you could not see more than a foot in front of the headlights. As we drove slowly for a few miles till the fog started to lift and our speed increased. There was one lone stoplight that my guitar friend was about to run because there was no one around for miles. I yelled out to stop for some reason and suddenly as he slammed on the brakes something slid fron the top of the car right past the windshield and onto the road in front of us. As he jumped out of the car he realised that he had forgotten to load his cherished Les Paul and he nearly feinted. The guitar was okay but the case had severe road rash and a busted case latch. i dont know what the moral is here but what luck![:D]

Moral of the story is that a good case can turn what could have been a disaster into a funny story.   Cases can be replaced, favorite instruments can't be.  I still long for my '65 Jazz bass.  Unfortunately a good case doesn't stop an instrument from getting stolen...

This reminds me about the day I forgot my Digitech RP-20 on the roof of my friends car. We drive all the way across town 30+ mins and got out the car to see it still sitting on the roof. We took the freeway and everything and went over 65 mph and it stayed right where we forgot it. I still have that pedel today and that was like 12+ years ago. I was luck that didn't fall off because I didn't have it in a case or anything.

My horror story was self inflicted and not a hardware fault. I sold my Eden WP100 & XLT410 cabs going down the lightweight path at the expense of loosing the Eden tone. So I guess the survival is thanks to Marshall for not only making sure Eden stay alive but from what I see Marshall have done exactly what was needed and got Eden back to the roots of their success. Keeping the right products and letting go those that didn't really fit well.

So thanks to Marshall I can go and get a new WT800 and cabs knowing that there's zero risk in how well they will perform. There's some very smart people at Marshall and sticking by the Eden USA design and build teams is great to see. At the end of the day the quality of product is more important to me than saving a few bucks and being disappointed.

Very grateful Marshall,
Thank you.
