Threshold bassist now an EBS artist
02.04.2014

Threshold bassist Steve Anderson now uses EBS bass amplification and EBS black label effects pedals.

Steve made the move over to EBS after demoing the powerhouse TD660 amplifier head, along with the pure and punchy Proline 410 and Neoline 412 speaker cabinets, deciding that this new rig combination would sound perfect for Threshold.

Steve is very happy to now be an EBS Artist and is looking forward to using his new rig and effects pedals at up and coming shows.
