VT300A History
« on: April 21, 2019, 05:49:06 AM »
Just read the following on a 'for sale' site - is this true?

"The Eden VT series were designed and made in Holland by Koch when Eden first decided they needed a line of valve amps. The models a, b and c were all basically the same amp but with small tweaks made throughout the production. This particular model a is more like the model b with different jacks from earlier a’s and a tweaked back panel. Koch designed and built these amps in Holland with all the same components they used on the Koch branded amps.

Interestingly the design, build and components for the Eden VT300 and Sadowsky SA200 are only separated by two differences. The Sadowsky only uses EL34’s where the Eden will run both 34’s and 6550’s making it switchable from 200 to 300 watts. The other difference is a slightly different voiced preamp. Saving £1k for more headroom and more footswitchable options isn’t bad."

just wondering...
UK member, WT330, WTX260, 2 x EX112 (both 4 ohm), WTDI, and a Microtour as well as a Roland Super Cube Bass, Blackstar HT5, Fender Jazz '67, Fretless Fender Jazz '70, Burns Barracuda, Epiphone EB-0, Ashbory, Stagg EUB and guitars and ukuleles and a mandolin as well

Hi Paul,
I have to check my docs, but I think only the Koch could run the EL34’s and the 6550‘s.
Eden had a cooperation with Koch. Most part is indeed a Koch K2500, but I think the preamp had bigger differences.
Rock on!

No schematics available!!! Don't ask for it.
