Reidmar 250 is the first lightweight bass amp from EBS Professional Bass Equipment 14-Nov-11
Swedish company, EBS has announced the release of the new EBS Reidmar 250, their first lightweight bass head.
Rather than simply create a small and lightweight product, EBS tell us that they have carefully developed the Reidmar 250 to feature the same tonal quality as their renowned full size solid state heads. They say the result is a lightweight bass head offering natural uncoloured tone and clear definition whatever the playing style.
Here's the rest of what EBS has to say in their own words...
Unlike many amplifiers in its class the Reidmar 250 does not feature an automatic limiter that reduces headroom and destroys the definition of low-end at loud volume levels. Instead it is engineered to simulate natural amp distortion when pushed to its limits, allowing users to take full advantage of the 250W available and create the impression of a much stronger amp.
Anyone familiar with EBS bass amps will feel at home with the Reidmar 250. The highly acclaimed manually operated compressor and the 4-band EQ-section with Bright and Notch filters retains much of the HD350 and TD660's front panel layout. Other features include an Effects Loop (send and return), Balanced XLR-out for live and studio use (with pre/post EQ switch and Ground Lift), Line Out, Headphone Output and a Speakon speaker output.
The amp utilises an analogue preamp with a Class-D power amp providing 250 W RMS @ 4 ohms. It weighs in at a mere 3.2 kg (7.1 lbs).
The Reidmar 250 is perfectly matched with a pair of EBS ClassicLine mini size 110 or 112 cabinets, or the NeoLine mini size cabinets to create an extremely portable but fully featured mini stack, or with any single full size EBS cabinet rated 4 ohms. Pricing and Availability:
The EBS Reidmar 250 will be available this month in the UK priced at £399 RRP inc VAT.
