dams09's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Eden sound in a pedal"
Adjusting bass, mid, treble, a compressor, a knob Enhance, volume, gain, bass boost switch, a switch mid shift.
An XLR output to connect directly to a console, one in input and output jack.
Simple and effective.
Configuration is very simple to me. For those who can use EQ, it could not be simpler. The bass boost and mid shift is not necessarily needed, equalization is already very sensitive and very effective.
For the compressor and the Enhance, well, you turn the knobs and listen to what it's like .
I never looked at the manual. There is a good sound very quickly. We can fiddle a while to find his hair cut at the microphone but in all cases the sound delivered is flattering for everyone to carve it to taste.
It is suitable for all styles. Really incredible versatility. It colors the sound without distorting it. I play it with an active JB and low production house with a micro type a musicman a kind accuracies. Each bass has its own identity and is easily recognizable.
The sound is fairly typical eden, trying to get an idea. But overall it's round, warm, slamming for slap ... A real treat. One can get almost any type of sound, and easily. I tried wtx264 head and it's really the same type of sound.
on the other hand, watch amplification puts you behind. Live in the computer to register it's great, great. on the other hand I tried a Laney amp with hp 15 ", which I really did not like the sound. Well it has slightly improved the sound but it's not miracles either. Such live on PA . If the sound is not good, especially pregnant, well, it's not sound particularly good.
on the other hand, plugged into a good amp, markbass type that is very neutral, it gives a very nice little sound coloration, who loves his eden.
And plugged directly into a sound card to play with headphones at home, it's great!
I use it for a year, at home and in rehearsal and recording. I love the sound it provides, very warm, versatile. Really a treat.
on the other hand must be seen for what it is: a tool that will help improve your sound without replacing a good amp available.
I highly recommend for the studio, plugged live, to work at home with headphones, or in addition to a good amp (or PA) if you want to provide additional color to your sound in rehearsal or concert.
In hindsight, yes I would do without hesitation that choice. Eden is really excellent products. There are other preamps, I have not had the opportunity to test (SansAmp, Hartke ...), but it gives me full satisfaction! Value / excellent price.

Bierrepc's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Small but Beefy!"
We go out with Jack and Jack or XLR => DI Box.
Compression, a 3-band EQ
(Bass, Mid, Aquamarine) + a Bass Boost and Mid Shift (you can choose between 550Hz and 2.2Khz)
Finally the volume.
Pedal small (barely longer than a RAT, lighter, thinner ...)
without battery (15V). The adapter is also tiny.
If turned 7 knob was difficult .... It is not - just takes a little turn buttons connaitres early history of many different actions knobs ... like all pedals and amps and then is a great sound.
And what a sound!
I had a Hartke Bass Kick more convincing to the metal
And Mark Bass CMD103 which was not bad.
Beh to 10X cheaper than the Mark Bass ... I just sound better on my monitor speakers.
It was a very very big bass reserve, it is more difficult to saturate the small animal.
I have tested a RAT or AMT on it.
Nothing to say, very comprehensive ... and yet so little knob!
With a good sound system or monitoring system, is truly paradise.
No need to break your back to go to rehearsal or concert - you plug it into the table, the sound is pre-programmed and the sauce is sending. In addition, it fits in almost any case low.
I put him in 1 day 7 because I could not get around the issue, but it is clear that it plays in the court of big.

scatblue's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Swiss army knife for bass"
I use it mostly with the XLR output to the console. The manual is insufficient for beginners amps, in short it is not used much for others. To get a good sound (your son), made as soft turn the boutons.Classique what!
It is very suitable for my jazz bass and my bass and my style (jazz, blues, etc ...).
I use it for several months and I am very satisfied. I have not tried other preamps I think basse.Mais share compared to other amps I own (fenders, Markbass, Gallien Kruger, Ampeg , Trace Elliot) he is doing very bien.j 'I stopped the arms race, amp level. I play live on the console through this box (weight gain and time). EDEN I knew by reputation, and I do not regret my purchase

mister bouldegom's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
This pedal has knobs moult:
bass, mid, treble, gain, enhance, compression, and two master switch. A boost for the 100hz area, the other to select the mid band (500hz or 2500Hz if I remember correctly) that acted on the knob of mediums (amazing is not it?)
The pedal is heavy and solid, except for a medium that is not semi-parametric and a blinding blue LED I have nothing to complain about.
Very simple, you plug it fiddled the knobs and we trust his ears. I return to "Enhance" and "compression".
Enhance will boost the bass and treble and midrange dig
Compression reacts as a limitation, it is dependent on the gain and its action is not progressive. The knob is turned, it nothing happens when suddenly, when we moved from one millimeter more, the sound is very subtle eaten ... :-/
However, the sound is really good.
Of course I've used my bass (Höfner "beatles" contemporary to very round and dull sound) who found the punch but I use it mainly for my preamp electro-acoustic guitar. By boosting the 50hz (bass knob) and assaying "Enhance" I emphasize the bass guitar without making slobbering (principle of psycho-acoustic notement used by the organs) and other corrections allow me to soften the attack and restore body and shine to a nylon electro. Being without the support of a bassist in a training e acoustic reggae had to lower my be present without being invasive ... mission accomplished. For lines bassses, I go through the oc3 boss.
I use it for 2 years and this preamp really helps me at all. Bass, electro guitar and even to equalize and "limit" the sound of a cajon via a kick-drum mic. I would do this choice because the price was a really versatile tool (even if it is not its primary purpose) and reliable.

Bebs7's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very useful"
Amplification transistor imitate sensible heat of a lamp.
Quite simple and intuitive use of "plug and play".
I later discovered that there was a manual that can answer more technical questions but not essential.
Careful because the knobs are very sensitive, you can feel a difference by modifying a few degrees.
I used to play reggae. I try to get a big, deep sound with a slight distortion. I feel that my sound is warmer.
I use it for a few months and I'm not disappointed. I also used it as a DI and filled his role well.

jeff 7 adore.'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Di and excellent preamp, comp!"
The BASS (bass eq) gives 15 db boost cut with about 30 hz. (Datasheet). MID knob, boost or cut the low mids eq when you press the red button mid shift.Le button gives 15 db treble boost and cut about 4000 hz.
The mixture Ehancer and enhances all frequencies a little device simultaneously.
The compressor clipped signals by boosting the bass gently.
SoRIE the Master General and adjusts the volume.
The XLR output to connect a console entry enregistrementou, near a small red button to cut the mass
On the front a Bypass button.
The manual is kept to a minimum, but hey, not really y'en besoin.La device configuration is simple, turn the knobs and hear what passe.ON get a very good sound.
Mid shift attention to the button: press the red button in the bottom position, it operates on frequencies between 550 and 2200 Hz, but it is only by turning the chrome MID.
The sound is excellent preamp, compressor transparent.Le is soft and thoroughly by pushing it boosts a little extreme low, you get a soft and écrasé.L 'ehancer is complex to describe but it just enhances the spectrum .
J think a little suit all types of music as it is transparent.Dès when we need to enhance the basse.Je played on a fretless Warwick, a MM SUB 4 amended, and JB.
By pushing it I did not recognize my amp (I play at home on a small Amp Warwick Blue Cab 20, it really sends fort.Je tried it on a guitar amp lamp putting all the settings ( the amp) in the middle (neutral), it's great., I have a slice of Hearing console and preamp Focusrite ISA one that can also be used for bass, but this little box Eden is absolutely specific to low and take you anywhere it's magic, I use it for 2 months. prices excellent quality, Eden is excellent. You have plenty for your argent.Sautez it!

slysly3131's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Bargain"
To avoid having her super amp to lug David Eden, that pedal preamp to always have the same sound (almost because it still depends on the amp after that attack, amp to adjust its neutral).
Just a case of pedal output jack or XLR to attack an amp or a PA directly. And presto!
The Eden typed with his famous "presence."
