General

THE EBS REIDMAR 500 PACKS EBS PROFESSIONAL BASS SOUND IN AN AWARDED "LAP-TOP-BAG-SIZED", LIGHTWEIGHT AMP DESIGN.


Natural sound. The Reidmar 500 amp is not so light that it will blow off your cabinet on a windy day, but it may well blow your mind. With clever engineering and selected high quality components, this amp offers a headroom and a tone quality that makes it hard to beat in comparison with other lightweight class-D amplifiers.

Due to advanced soft-clip technology, the Reidmar does not suffer any loss of definition in the low register when the volume is turned up. Instead, it offer tone quality only matched by premium solid state amplifiers at a whole different price range - with the only difference this amp responds faster and with greater punch. 

Analog preamp. The analog preamp, featuring EBS renowned built-in compressor and a 4-band EQ-section, is very similar to the preamp on the HD360, except it does not feature a Drive control.

Some other features include: 

  • Effects loop (send and return)
  • Balanced XLR-out for live and studio use (with pre/post EQ switch and Ground Lift)
  • Line out
  • Headphones output

Perfect Companions. Match the Reidmar 500 with a couple of EBS ClassicLine mini-size 112 cabinets, the new ClassicLine 210 or the NeoLine mini-size cabinets for more clarity and punch. Or any single full size EBS cabinet of choice rated at 4 Ohms for maximum power and tone quality.

With two amps together, connected through the Effects loop (Send from one to Return on the other), you can drive two 4 ohm cabinets, getting a separate volume control for each cabinet while using the EQ from the one you plug in to.

REVIEW from Guitarist Magazine, UK, March 2013

"The combination of analogue preamp and digital power stage proves a great way of getting a quality amp sound at volume while retaining the natural sound of your bass."

REVIEW from Bass Quarterly July-Aug (GE), 2012

THE King Of Dwarfs - EBS Reidmar

By Heiko Jung (Translation from German)

"All in all the Reidmar is definitely a full-grown EBS bass amp which may well rank among the best that are currently available in the Class D amplifier sector. With regard to technology and sound, the “little black one“ excels by the typical EBS qualities, and taking its relatively modest price into account, it’s probably only a matter of time before it pretends to the throne among the “midget amplifiers"."
