A look at Eden bass amps with Mr. Eden himself

Mundelein, IL (May 8, 2008) - David Eden of Eden Electronics walks through the features of a number of high end amps, including the WTX260, the E300T, the WT800 and the WT550. Eden also discusses the design and construction of an Eden cabinet.

The WTX260 is particularly interesting, weighing in at 3.8 pounds while delivering up to 300 watts of juice. Believe or not, this amp is small enough to fit in your gig bag.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
