Eden - WTX-260 Sub-Compact Bass Amplifier

WTX-260 Sub-Compact Bass Amplifier

Chicago, Illinois, July 12, 2006 – Eden Electronics, the leader in bass amplification, will debut its new sub-compact amplifier, the WTX-260, at the Summer 2006 NAMM show in Austin, Texas. This small, lightweight (only 3.8 lbs!) unit includes all the features users have come to expect from Eden amplifiers, and also includes groundbreaking technology to make life easier on touring musicians.

The WTX-260 is the perfect amplifier for players who need a full-featured amp that will fit in the pocket of the average gig bag. “We designed the WTX-260 for the traveling musician, especially those who travel internationally” said David Nordschow, Eden’s founder and Chief Engineer. “You can slip this amp into the pocket of most gig bags, and you can use it anywhere in the world with no modifications. Just attach the appropriate power cord and play away. The amplifier automatically senses and adjusts itself to local voltage.”

The pre-amplifier section of the WTX-260 is based on the Golden Ear chip for amazing warmth and musicality. This is the same chip used in ultra-high-end recording consoles and is more expensive – and more musical – than the chips used by other manufacturers. Powered by a unique Analog Switching Amplifier that delivers 260W to 300W RMS (@ 4Ω w/ +3dB headroom), depending on local voltage conditions, the WTX-260 has an impressive list of features, including:

Eden’s proprietary Enhance control
3-band EQ with Dynamic Bass Boost and Mid-shift functions
Switchable automatic compression
Studio-quality DI with level, ground lift and Pre/Post-EQ select
-12dB Input Pad
FX loop
Stereo Aux Inputs
Tuner and Headphone outputs
Two 1/4" and one NL-4 (Speakon) Speaker outputs
Optional Footswitch for Mute and Enhance Bypass functions
Optional Rack-mount hardware
Made in USA

All this in a package that’s no bigger than a few CDs and weighs in at an incredible 3.8 lbs.!

Retail price in the US for the WTX-260 will be $899.90. Eden expects to begin shipping units to dealers by September.
