do cabs come with a carry handle?
« on: March 09, 2018, 12:46:34 AM »
I can't see it from the pics online. Must be hard to transport these without a handle?

Look carefully and you will see the handles, or, if the picture is not clear, read the product specifications and it will tell what sort of handles each cab has.  The only one that doesn't seem to have handles is the monitor shaped D210MBX...

Hi bushy and welcome to the Garden!

Please check in which forum you post your new topics before you post them, so I don't have to move each of them.

And, of course, all cabs have handles.
Rock on!

Hi Bushy,

On the Eden website if you use the arrows below the drawing of the cab it will show you pictures of the actual cab from a number of different sides and angles, and you can see exactly what the handles look like on each cab.

I was expecting the carry-on handle to be like what a combo guitar amp would have.

Carry-on handles commonly found on combo guitar amps are an historic echo of amp in a suitcase - a common idea in the 1940's - however bass cabinets and combos tend to be a lot heavier and so usually have handles on the side so that you are forced to pick them properly, reducing the damage to your back but also making it easier to stack them.  I play a club which has a house amp, an Ashdown combo which has a handle on the top.  The sound is dreadful so I take my own WTX260 and a single EX112 but I have to turn the Ashdown rubbish sideways to be able to put mine on the top - top handles are a pain if you want to stack...

You'd never be able to lift and maneuver a D410 cab with a single, carry-on type handle!!!

Would have been at least 20 years ago for me! 

You should have tried to pick up and move my powered 215 cab back in the early 70's, when I was in my 20's.  I actually managed to fit it into the back of my VW bug.  Had to move the front seats all the way up, strap down the back seat and  wiggle the cab in on it's side.  Once it was past the wheel well swell I would flop it over on its back and move the seats back to normal position.  Amp head on one side of the amp and duffle bag on the other, and bass in its case on top.  My soon to be wife would sit in the front passenger seat and away we would go.  Put a lot of miles on that VW bug that way.  Now  THAT was a heavy cab.

My current 410 weighs 79-lbs and no way you'd pick it up with a suitcase handle on top.
