I was gonna make a Scott Ambush topic, but did a search first--and--low and behold :)

He was the first person I heard play an Eden amp. I was at a restaurant and they were playing a CD of a live instrumental concert. I was enjoying it so much that I asked the manager if he know what the CD was. It must have been his CD because he answered joyfully without hesitation "Road Scholars" by Spyro Gyra. I went to the CD store (remember those? haha) the next day and bought it.

I was playing in my high school jazz band at the time, so I was really into anything instrumental. I'd never heard of Spyro Gyra, but I loved Fourplay and other smooth jazz bands like that.

The liner notes for "Road Scholars" (a compilation of live performances by the band) were extremely informative about the shows and the gear the musicians used. I was so blown away by Scott Ambush's tone. He was using David Eden gear--a WT800 head particularly. This was in the late 90s. Suddenly, I started noticing Eden amps on a lot of stages. I've wanted one ever since. I'm SO glad to finally own an Eden rig. I don't think I'll ever use anything else.
