EBS Ships New Classic 500 - 500W RMS Solid State Bass Head -

EBS Sweden AB and UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd announce immediate shipping of the new EBS Classic 500 - 500W RMS solid state bass amp. 

The EBS Classic 500 is the natural evolution of the previous EBS Classic 450 bass head. The extra power and the new compact casing add both flexibility and portability to an already extremely popular bass head.  It has also been finished with a stunning new look.

The new EBS Classic 500 retro-styled bass amp offers a classic tube amp-type of sound. The musical Drive control and the exceptional control offered by the dual midrange section makes it easy to dial-in any type of vintage (or modern) bass sound. The power offered from the new power amp makes the Classic 500 an amazingly versatile bass amp with a beautiful tone.

In true EBS tradition the Classic 500 is transparent to the character of your bass. The thoughtfully designed EQ puts you firmly in the driving seat, adding everything from subtle, vintage overdrive to a mean driving distortion, whilst maintaining a beautiful low rounded bottom end.

With the new compact design, the Classic 500 is the perfect match for all EBS ClassicLine cabinets, including the narrower mini size 112 cabinets. The new design also works with the ProLine and NeoLine cabinets.
