The Swedish designed EBS bass amps got World-wide recognition when the likes of Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke and Bon Jovi’s Hugh McDonald brought them to stages all over the world around the Millennium shift. The list of high-profile users has kept growing ever since – in all kind of musical directions – which makes the versatile EBS amps more visible than ever today. Here are the Top 5 reasons for You to consider EBS amps as the amp of your choice!
- The sound always comes first.
EBS philosophy is that every instrument and musician has their own personality – a soul. An amp should be sensitive to that ‘soul’ and not erase the characteristics of it. In other words, the amp must be transparent and natural sounding – which is the hallmark of any EBS amp. When we develop a new head we always focus on the sound in the first place. We don’t aim for awards for the best looking amp or the lightest bass amp – we aim to make the best sounding amps in the World! When people like Marcus Miller, Tal Wilkenfeld and Dirty Loop’s Henrik Linder choose to play EBS – they choose it because they like the way they sound through it – because it sound’s like themselves.
- Reliability comes next.
Equipment for professional use must be reliable. We may not be on the front of the barricades of technological land-winnings. Instead we refine and take proven technology to new levels to meet our demands. That way we have been able to produce reliable equipment and keep the number of service matters and warranty issues down to very low figures. Reports from our artists of EBS amps that has kept delivering flawlessly through 1000+ heavy-metal gigs and feedback from major backline rental companies’ makes us confident to say EBS is trustworthy gear, designed and developed in Sweden!
