Eden Classifieds / For Sale -- TN 501 Gig Bag
« Last post by jcadmus on January 15, 2018, 02:51:26 PM »
Practically brand new -- only used it a few times. Decided to rack my amp, so I no longer need it.

Even if you don't have an Eden Terra Nova amp, the bag makes a great little carry-all for cords, straps, etc.

New $45 w/shipping and tax. My price, $25 shipped. Payment via cashiers check or Venmo.

Happy ending to report -- I received a new set of rack ears from US Music/Marshall on Saturday. The work just fine.

Have you contacted Music Meyer?  Perhaps no so expensive as you think?  Repairers in neighbouring countries maybe?  If you have no technical expertise (and not knowing that rotating a pot can dislodge dirt that causes noise is fairly basic - it is about the limit of my technical expertise) how can you start until you know what the problem is?

Thank you for the hint.
Unfortunately, service and repair is here so expensive, that in most cases it would cost less to buy another second hand device. In addition, just to ask how much it would cost, I have to pay a fix sum. Thus, I would prefer to try to repair it myself. Does anybody have a clue, where should I start?

You have to upload them on a third party webpage and link them here.
If cleaning didn’t help you might have it serviced from an Eden Service Center.
Rock on!

Hello.
Here the update. I could not reproduce the problem No.2 for the last 3-4 days. Was it by chance or could I repair the pot just by turning it? I do not know.

Kontakt 60 delivered. Yesterday I spray it in the jacks and on a plug. Than plug in and out of the jack 10 times.
I spray it in the pots and rotate them 10 times. I am not sure if it is chance or suggestion. I could be a little bit better but it is not OK. Rotation goes easier. As additional check I disconnected ventilation and equalizer. (see attachment red socket marked with yellow arrows). I brought no change.
Anny suggestions?
PS. How can I upload images?

Seems that the old 'enhance' control is the villain and I suspect the duplication of EQ controls - why have two?  If you have a power amp with no EQ it makes senses, if you have an amp with poor EQ it makes sense to bypass it (as I do with my WTDI on occasion) but EQ adjustment into an amp which is designed to allow excellent EQ adjustment makes no sense to me.  The reason for suggesting a good clean, by the way, is that amps over time get dirty from just being used and most problems (certainly many problems) that come up here can be cured by a good clean, it never hurts and should always be part of your annual maintenance - which reminds me - January is a quiet month for my band so guess what I'm going to be doing before we start again in February?

One other thing.  I noticed that you listed a compressor as one of your effects.  Depending upon where the compressor fits into your signal chain, you may need to boost the gain a bit on the WT500 to give your compressor a hot enough signal to get what you want out of your compressor.  If I'm looking at the right compressor you have an input level adjustment, which is in effect a second gain.  Adjusting that should get you a hot enough signal. However, if you use a lot of compression and are not able to get the compressor sound you want with the settings I suggested, bump up the gain on your WT500.  That will give your compressor more signal to compress.

If the auto compressor is engaged on the WT500 (and most other WT amps) the compressor latches on when the gain-set light flashes.  I personally do not do much in the way of slap and in my opinion that's the only thing that the auto-compressor sounds good with.  it's a hard-knee compression and I don't like the way it sounds with other styles of playing.  Your rack compressor has far better control and versatility in compressing your signal.  I wouldn't automatically presume you need more gain from the amp, but if the compressor is post EQ and you're not getting a hot enough signal, turn the WT500 gain up a bit at a time until you get what you like.

I went and tried what you said and seems to have made a difference and overall get a better understanding of the how to use the amp. Let's see how it fares in the next rehearsal. I post again after next week. Thanks a ton!!!
