1 U Pre-amp
« on: June 11, 2007, 08:13:33 PM »
Now that I see that there are others thinking my way, I want to put my 2 cents back in the pile. I had said a year or two ago, that what I'd like to see is a 1u preamp based on the front end of the WT405 w/ the golden chip and no tubes. If there was one coming out tomorrow, I'd be the first in line to buy one. I just hope they don't wait another two years to make it happen. Don't know if I can wait that long.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I'm 53, disabled with diabetes. By the time they get it done, I'll be dead, the way Eden has been lately. The company has me pretty frustrated.

Consider a WTX 260 and use the preamp section.  I suggested to Lane that the company consider a 1RU rack version of the 260 so who knows?  That would be pretty sweet - an Eden amp as small and as light as my old BBE preamp.  Use it on its own or with a power amp for larger gigs.

I'm sorry you're frustrated, oldandslow, but we're being very careful about product release for a few reasons. First, the fact that when we attempted to rush things, it made the situation even worse. Second, we are currently going through full line product review and carefully considering the next step(s).

Another consideration is viability in the marketplace. It's all well and good to talk about how many of us want a specific prodict, but if the product won't survive in the marketplace, it's a waste of resources to develop it.

So...as I said, we're going to go a bit more slowly than we did in the past couple of years.

I will say this... while it's been somewhat unnerving at times, the changes being made by the new COO are already showing some good results... and I expect the trend to continue.

+1 on the WTX260 as a small pre-amp...with a pro quality DI, the ability to serve as a backup head, and great tone. Not to derail yout thread, but it would seem Eden could make a pre-amp even smaller than a 1u device...something that would clip on a mic stand or guitar strap so you could tweak settings without walking back to your rig. Heck, make it wireless to boot.

I actually think the new product rollouts from Eden have been more aggressive in the last few years. If you consider the 1205, the 800C, the WTX, the Rocco stuff, the silver line, and the monitors, there's been a huge increase in the number of products available.

If a SS preamp comes out, I would personally expect to see it in a pedal housing before a 1U rack.
