New Bass Product Questions

There are two products that I am curious about

 

1st- In the current Bass Player ( Dave Holland )on page 88 - product spotlight page there is a 100 watt combo tube amp from Nady Systems with a SRP of $499 which would mean maybe $399 ish in the stores?

Thats not a bad price for an all tube bass combo with a 15 considering a new Ampeg B -15 is $2000? Any thoughts?

 

2nd item is from the Brian Wilson issue on page 67.

Its the EBS Micro Bass II..

Its an A/B box, a headphone amp, a pre amp, a direct box, its an overdrive pedal all in one and its only 2 lbs. but costs $800.

Looks like a nice tool to have but thats a steep price.

Steep price indeed. Around here you can get it for 'bout $300. Don't know much about it though. :(

Nady makes wireless units, not amplifiers. Yes, I know you said they do, but they must've decided to enter the market very recently. Stay away from them for at least three years. Most companies entering this market tend to make mistakes that consumers wind up paying for as they learn how to build a cost-effective product to compete in this industry.

 

As for EBS, they make some nifty pedals, albeit very pricey. They're either out of Norway or Sweeden. Supposedly they have the best bass octave generator unit for under $1,000. Never seen one outside of a magazine. Hmm. Time to go shopping.

 

Repeat: STAY AWAY from new amplifiers! The old stuff is the good stuff, IMHO.

:wave:
