EBS Classic 450 Bass Amp Head Details

The EBS Classic 450 is their ultimate retro styles amp head. The perfect match for their ClassicLine cabinets, the 450 gives a classic bass sound with EBS acclaimed EQ and drive filters. The result is a versatile, powerful and user friendly amp head suitable for all types of bassist.

The Classic 450 is a retro styled bass amp designed to be versatile and easy to use. The sound of the amp itself is a combination of classic vintage tones and the clear EBS transparency. This amp head is a great match for the EBS ClassicLine cabinets.

The 450 has a thoughtfully designed EQ which puts you firmly in control of your sound. It is equipped with a creative dual midrange section and a boosted drive control which adds everything from subtle, vintage overdrive to a mean driving distortion, whilst still maintaining a beautiful low rounded bottom end.


"Soundwise, the looks of the head gives you a pretty good idea of the character. Not a typical hi-tech sound, but a warmer, slightly softer quality that is still able to cut through. Increasing treble for a sharper touch still gives a pretty warm sound. The Classic 810 enclosure is a great companion to the head. This helps getting a softer sound than most EBS equipment. However, the warmth does not make it muddy or unclear. Clarity and presence are still there, but in a mellower way." Lars Arvidsson, FUZZ Magazine

"It looks vintage and it sounds vintage. The amp produces tons of powerful low end with a vicious growl." -Solomon Walker, Morrissey
