The EBS Reidmar is the first light-weight bass head from EBS. A light-weight bass amp that challenges any heavy-weight boutique amp in tonal qualities. The Reidmar takes full advantage of EBS Famed Analog Preamp techniques combined with a Class-D Power amp.
The EBS philosophy is to amplify the character of the instrument and the personality of the musician, to offer a natural sound. The physical aspects of a class-D power amp makes that mission a real challenge. However, the EBS Reidmar shows that anything is possible with clever engineering!
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. It does not use a present automatic limiter that kicks in at a certain point and levels out the lows like many other class-D amps do. No, the Reidmar takes maximum advantage of the power offered. That makes it a powerful, great sounding bass amp that is fully comparable with other heads with larger and more expensive power amps - dynamite!
While offering a powerful and defined sound at most levels, when pushed to the limit it provides a natural and useful amp distortion, like the Drive on a solid state amp, This further extends the possibilities to use the EBS Reidmar in different musical contexts.
Anyone familiar with EBS bass amps will feel at home with the Reidmar. The renowned built-in compressor and the 4-band EQ-section are really intuitive and feature the (for EBS) characteristic Bright and Notch filters and remind you a lot of the layouts of HD360 and TD660.
The preamp is analog, and similar to the preamp on HD and TD heads. The amp also features an Effects loop (send and return), Balanced XLR-out for live and studio use (with pre/post EQ switch and Ground Lift), Line out, Headphones out and Speakon speaker output.
The amp processes the sound through an analog preamp with a D-class power amp providing 250 W RMS/470 W Dynamic Output @ 4 ohms load. Weight is 3.2 kg (7.1 lbs).
The EBS Reidmar matches perfectly well with a couple 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.
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.
