I bought mine back in August of 2011 used from Guitar Center and I think it's one of the models before they improved it. I have never had any issue with it going into thermal shutdown. It does get pretty hot, and for awhile it concerned me, but at this point I stopped worrying about it since it hasn't happened yet. I also push it pretty hard usually. I've used it to power 3 cabs for an entire 2 set GD show pushing it almost to it's limit multiple times and had no problem at all! I have read similar things about these heads but I guess I got lucky.
Again, your tone is off the hook in that video! May I pick your brain some more? What model Gretsch is your bass? Where did you get it? I have a local ad on craigslist where someone is selling a full stack, the Eden WT-800 manufactured in '94 in a rack mounted travel hard case, plus an Eden D410XST cab, and an Eden D118XL cab for $2,000. But the 18" would be way overkill for me and so I asked if he'd be willing to sell separate. He said to make him an offer. What should one expect to pay for the head and the 410, any idea?
