Glowing enthusiasm

I bought the cute little Glowplug Tube Preamp because I wanted to add some "warmth" to my bass amp sound. I have been using a Peavey MAX® 115 since the summer, which provides a good all-round sound and with 300 watts also has enough power reserves. The input stage, however, requires a rich signal, I then quickly noticed. And the pure digital amplifier sounds very clear and clean - but for me is often too clear and clean, despite the built-in tube simulation circuit, which I find something impractical (only on the amp switchable).

But back to the Glowplug Preamp: He's exactly the solution I wanted. Amazing what the little box can do! It provides a more dense, even stronger signal on request, which has clearly (!) More thrust, especially in the bass range. On old Peavey tube preamps the corresponding controllers were called "Bottom" and "Body" - very suitable names also for the areas, which appeals to the Eden.

The sound can be influenced from subtle to powerful. Try to help - because the controllers influence each other, as is the case with tube pre-stops. My Fender MIJ Jazz Bass, which I have equipped with very clean and detailed sounding Bartolini pickups, harmonizes perfectly with the Glowplug. The sound becomes more organic, more powerful and has just more bite - which now, for example, is also much more controllable by the nature of the stroke.

What also strikes me very positively: Even if you turn the level knob fully, absolutely no noise or other background noise can be heard. This speaks for the quality of the components and the circuit. But that should be allowed for this price and the name of Eden also.

You can not expect a precise sound shaping like an EQ from the Glowplug! In some settings, the sound loses some heights, which unfortunately can not be compensated for on the device. But this does not appear at all in the band all. On the contrary: I had the feeling that I can now hear the bass much better and even turn a little quieter.

Of the multithetical tube "warmth", there are many different perceptions, especially among bassists. Anyone looking for a Zerre will certainly not be happy with the Eden Glowplug. If you are looking for a simple and very high-quality tube preamp for its setup, which brings analogous "life" into the sound, rather more. My personal ideas of tubular warmth correspond exactly to the preamp - so thumbs up!

Everything rotten !!!

Then ... where to start?
To flee absolutely if you want to "warm up" your sound !!!
Certainly the settings are tempting, the description is tempting, but the sound ... what? Ah yes the sound ... there is sound coming out of this stuff it seems,
My bass has a good sound my amp has a good sound, this machine cooled the whole regardless of the settings ...
I had a valve drive from EBS before that burned at the end of Persian 10 years of very good and very loyal services, a killing,
I did not really have the means to redeem the same and I was seduced by the possibility of "mixing" its clear and saturated, plrrrrr, nothing, it does not leave anything, I would have done better to buy A valve drive leaves to release money
Well, I thought, I'll change the lamp.
You should know that a pedal like that, if you use it often (me all the time) you also often change the lamp that tires ...
Would ... but ... it is where the hatch to change the lamp ??????
Do not see me ....
Ah yeah, have to disassemble, but where? I'm unscrewing, but do you have to deviate that too? and that ? I force, I do not find ... So I give up, I do not want to peter everything to realize that in fact there is perhaps just no lamp inside, and not Not be able to resell it ....
I'm not going to the end of the disassembly, too afraid to break everything, so much the worse, lamp inaccessible, its rotten, I think there must be no lamp. And even if it is each time a galley monster to change the lamp, let fall ....
