A friggin' auto-wah? That's what they give us? I'm sorry if this comes off the wrong way, but I am getting the vibe I am from the "Old Eden" era. This new "Marshall-Eden Era", I just don't seem to fit into... I feel like this forum is becoming a more and more scarce place for us dinosaurs.  :P

I love my WT1205, I will never give it up. I just wish that Eden designed a more powerful WTX series amplifier I can carry around as a backup, just in case. It seems most of the suggestions around the forum that float around here with any frequency are certainly acknowledged by Armin, but the entity of Eden itself has fallen deaf.

Neither of them were 1000 watt powerhouses. ::)

Wrong, WT1000 puts out 1000W @ 4 ohm bridged and I am very happy with it :D


Sorry Armin, I must have the wrong WT1000 manual.  The 28/04/2003 version I have says:

"Congratulations on your purchase of the Eden WT-1000 Bass Instrument Amplifier. You have
purchased what we feel is one of the finest bass amplifiers in the world. The WT-1000 produces
450 watts of pure power into 4 ohms (240 watts into 8 ohms) with min. 3db of dynamic headroom.
This compact, rack mountable package houses modular circuits made with superior components
and designed for years of trouble-free service.

Thank you for choosing Eden. Please take the time to review this manual and to send in your
warranty registration card."


No mention of Bridged Mode?

Look on the bright side.  If Eden concentrates on making pedals, there's bound to be something to interest most players eventually.  Seems like there's some demand for a WTDI Deluxe and a distortion pedal for sure.

No idea Rae, but you know our manuals :D
Basically it is a WT800 power section.
With a little upgrade to the supply section I could easily get 1200 W out of that amp.

Yep Armin, the old manuals provided quite a bit more information on all the gear - just not all of it was up to date (correct  ;) )

Manuals seem to be the never ending story of Eden and with all this languages added the story will continue for a loooong time.

hmmmmm. So it's basically an envelope filter.

Not sure that it will exceed what my Octavious Squeezer already delivers, but I am a little more curious about this one compared to the chorus.

Price will be the deciding factor on getting this or not.

The price will be the same as the WTDI and i90 Chorus.
Not a bad price I would say!

I hope it's not another pedal.  The biggest holes in the product line are a higher powered micro head and some lightweight D-series cabinets.
What is a D-series cabinet? I thought that was a class of amplifiers.

D Series cabinets are so famous I never expected a bass player to ask that question. :-).

Yes, the D used to stand for David and Eden Badge on the cabinets even said "David" on the top line and "Eden" on the bottom line.  They were called the David-series cabinets back then and were all designated with a "D" model number as they still are. 

David Nordschow was the founder of Eden and he designed those cabs.  He sold Eden to USM; stayed on for a couple of years and then left.  More recently USM sold Eden to Marshall Amplification.  After David left, USM changed the David-series cabinets to "D-series" cabinets.  The moniker D-series was in pretty common usage by then as it was easier to refer to them as D-series than calling them David-series.  The 2010-11 catalog (was published late in 2010) was the first Eden catalog to list the cabs as D-series instead of David-series cabs.

The D-series claim to fame is their great clear sound made possible by the unique design and construction of the speakers and the cabinets themselves.  Eden made the speakers in house until a few years back when they contracted Eminence to make the speakers for them to Eden's original designs (***Note*** you cannot purchase Eden-designed speakers from Eminence).   A number of folks on the forum have replaced a broken or blown Eden-made speaker with the newer Eminence ones and found no difference in sound.  D-series cabinets and speakers have always been made in the USA. 

The D-series cabs are split into 2 basic lines - the XLT (Xtra-Low with Tweeter) and the XST (Xtra-Smooth with Tweeter).  The XLT have a built in hump in the low-mids which cuts through mixes very nicely and has an aggressive-thump-in-the-chest bass sound. It's been a favorite for a long time.  The XST does not have the low-mid hump but rather a flat response across the frequency range.  They are sometimes referred to as "Hi-Fi" type speaker. The XST speakers also have a wider and lower frequency range than the XLT and the low-end on them is very tight and defined.  They are particularly good if you use a 5 string and play on that low B string much.  If you want the low-mid hump on the XST's, you can EQ it in. The XST's also have higher power-handling capabilities than the XLT's and the XLT's handle a lot of power.   The D-series cabs are considered Eden's best cabinets and are certainly some of the very best cabinets in the world.

By comparison, the E-series speakers and cabinets are made in China.  They also have a great Eden sound but have lower power-handling than the D-series.  One of the favorites E-series cabinets around here is the E112 which has tremendous sound at a much lower price-point than the D-series.

Just possibly more than you really wanted to know about Eden D-series cabs?
