The New EBS Classic 500 is the natural evolution of the previous Classic 450 bass head. The extra power, and the new compact casing that first perfectly on a ClassicLine 112 Cabinet bring flexibility and portability to the table. This is a very capable bass head with a stunning vintage look.

The new EBS Classic 500 retro-styled bass amp is as close you will get to a classic tube amp sound with any solid state bass head. The musical boosted 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 plenty of power offered from the new power amp makes the Classic 500 an amazingly versatile bass amp with a beautiful tone. Transparent to the character of your bass - in true EBS tradition!

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 design, the Classic 500 is the perfect match for ALL EBS ClassicLine cabinets, including the narrower mini size 112 cabinets, due to the new compact outfit.The new EBS Classic 500 amp comes with a padded cover.
