Finally..a workout for my D410T
« on: March 13, 2005, 09:59:03 PM »
[:D] After two weeks of moderate playing levels, my new D410T finally got a once over today at church. There was no preaching today (unplanned) and we have two very long jams. Tonight our pastor pulled out an old tune (King Jesus) that we played for well over 30 minutes. We play it with an old school (almost Elvis) feel. Heavy bass and drums with a Tele and harmonica. I had three numb finger tips on my left hand, and two on my right. A blister on my left middle finger, and a hole on my right index finger. It is somewhat painful to type!

To refresh you, I run a WT330 and my new D410T (4 ohm). Previously I was running a D112XLT and a Mesa 1-15. There at church I use a Lakland 55-02 fretless and a G&L L2500. Tonight was all G&L, and I actually turned the output level up to 11 o'clock. [:p]

Our long jam was in E, so embelishments were rampant. The 410 sounds much better loud than it has a moderate levels, The 1-12 / 1-15 rig was somewhat brighter, but the Eden 410 has bottom booty. No jeans, but my suit pants were flapping. [8D]  Low B's, and walks up to the low E were well defined and distinct. Upper register chord work produced a tube-like growl even without the "warm" button activated. The drummer eat it up, [:p]  as this was the first time the 410 gave it up and really moved some air. My wife, who played the harp on the other side on the platform even complimented my playing and tone. [;)]  I don't run through the PA, but this rig more than fills up our 400 seat church. Brutal comes to mind. [:D]  Our guitarist (my brother) runs a Eginator 50w tube amp, and I have no problem staying on par with him.

Great balance; from low register passing notes, mid neck walking phrases, top end double stops/chords, and unbelievable thick slides. It just doesn't get anybetter than this. [:p][:p][:p]  Please pass it iodine and superglue for the fingertips.

The G&L L-2500 is a great bass with massive bottom end. I give my soundman nightmares when I use it with my EDEN WT550/D410xlt cab. Glad to hear you liked the sound of the 410 cab, I always liked a 410 over the sound of a 15" cab. Much quicker tighter respone IMO but with plenty of bottom.[8D]

Sounds like a fun church you've got there!
And I'm pleased to hear the WT330 performs so well. I've only done small gigs since I bought mine so it hasn't had a serious workout yet.

I'm running my D410T  with a WT-550. I play in a metal band with 3 guitarists - and I'm the one that gets told to turn down...:)

Wes,
  I have decreased the size of my bass rig and still get told to turn down also. I think it is a hidden rule in a soundmans rule book to automaticaly tell the bass player to turn down. I am actualy to the point of not even bringing my amp to my next show and just running a DI into the board.[}:)]

I once saw a band that set up the guitar and bass rigs behind the man PA stacks, pointing back at the stage. This seemed to help them avoid the dreaded "Turn down!" from the sound man. However, on many of the gigs I play, this wouldn't be possible, as the PA isn't a monster.

As a new member it's nice to come in here and see people still using some of the old "flagship" Eden gear. The 410T is a true workhorse and it only sounds better the more you push it, it seems. You bought it new recently? I thought they were dropping the 410T.

The 410T has indeed been dropped from the line...but there are still a few out there in stores.

My home town Eden dealer still has (1) D410T (4 ohm) left. He has a very small privately owned shop. I have bought all my Eden gear from him, except (1) D112XLT (off evilbay).

"I think it is a hidden rule in a soundmans rule book to automaticaly tell the bass player to turn down."
I've been told to turn down even when I had my amp switched off! These days I'm sound guy more often than bass player - I find that some guitar multi-fx presets have massive amounts of low-end boost, as do some synth patches - in a resonant room it's hard to tell who's creating the low end mush and a non-bass-playing sound guy will assume it's all coming from the bass.

Warwick, (it is funny calling someone that because it is the town that I live in)
 I have been told to turn down and have not even been in the club yet[:D]

These are clear cut cases of 'Gear Envy'. Eden products suffer the stigma of looking ssooo cool and professional that everyone assumes it will be too loud before its even powered up!
Its just jealously.
Ignore it.
