EBS Releases Fafner II at Musikmesse

EBS follows up its best-selling amp, the Fafner, with additional features

Bromma, Sweden (March 26, 2010) -- EBS Fafner, named after a dragon in a Northern legend, has become a legend itself as the best selling EBS amp of all times. Now EBS has introduced the EBS Fafner II.

EBS Fafner II uses a two-channel preamp that can be run in series or parallel mode. Since you can switch between the channels or blend them together it open up a lot of possibilities to shape your sound. Footswitch control. Use a remote footswitch control (EBS RM-4) to switch between the channels, bypass filters, kick in the character filters or mute the rig while tuning.

The Fafner II amp also features two separate balanced XLR-outputs, one pre and one post EQ. This creates the opportunity to blend a clean signal with a processed straight from the amp, or to use a clean signal to front of house and your own sound in the monitors on stage, plus allowing for additional studio options.

Individual effect loops for each channel, and a common loop provide maximum flexibility when hooking up your effects. For example, you can connect a noise gate to the drive channel, without affecting the clean channel, while you can use a Chorus on the clean channel, without affect the drive channel.

The smooth working built in compressor used on most EBS amps is famous. On the Fafner II it is as advanced as ever, since it only compresses the sound of the clean channel and leaves the drive channel as wild as you want it.

The protected power amp stage gives an impressive 750 W RMS at 2 ohm load, 610 W RMS at 4 ohm, and 310 at 8 ohm.

EBS Fafner II is designed, developed and built in Sweden. EBS Fafner II is now in production and will be available in the summer of 2010.
