A Bouncing EX112!
« on: April 10, 2017, 04:18:02 AM »
Travelling down a rather long escalator to the underground I hadn't notice that the bungee holding the EX112 cabinet had slipped off and the cabinet started tumbling down the escalator in front of me, getting faster and faster for a length of maybe 30 metres (100 foot) - mercifully there was no-one at the bottom, I dread to think what would have happened if there had been.  Trembling I got to the bottom, put the cabinet back on the trolley and completed the journey to the gig.  Plugged in my WTX260, connected the bass, pressed the mute button out and - perfect sound, not a sign, sonically, that anything had happened - two gigs since it is still working.  It suffered a couple of scars to the carpet stuff it is finished in and I lost one screw from a corner protector.  Cannot believe how rugged this bit of kit is - not only did it survive an amazing physical stress but the damage that did happen was so minor and purely cosmetic.  I had hoped I would never have to write an entry in this part of the forum but I am one lucky person that my stupidity with the cabinet didn't cause an injury, clearly an Eden cabinet can look after itself!

That's some scary stuff Paul.  And having to watch it keep going, knowing there's nothing you can do to stop it, just makes you feel so helpless.

Glad to hear it ended well for you.

Thanks all - I suspect I'll still have nightmares about that - seeing that cabinet bouncing faster and faster...

That was quite a tumble your cab took. A human wouldn't have fared so well.
At least it wasn't the amp.
Glad all is well.
