Feel This Bottom End

March 2002

Eden Electronics endorses Ron Buckner (B-6).  He was requested to conduct  seminars in Denver, Colorado to answer questions about the Navigator Preamp, and  the World Tour Power Amp which he uses. He also uses the Eden D-115XLT for the low end and the D 410T for the midrange and high end. The seminars were a great success and several bass players are now using new Eden equipment. Ron is always ready to answer questions about the fine products produced by Eden Electronics and now DNA Amplifiers and Speakers

Ron "B-6" Buckner Long Time Eden Electronics Endorser

B-6 USED the WT Navigator Pre Amp and WT1000 Stereo Power Amp to drive his D410T and D115XLT cabinets. When asked why he is switching to DNA he says, "I have played thru a variety of bass amplifiers and speakers. In my opinion the DNA 1350, besides looking great in my rack, is a very versatile and powerful amplifier. I play a Modulus Quantum Six string bass, my DNA1350 allows me to dial in the sound that I hear and feel, from everything set flat to seriously EQ-ed, and anything in-between. I enjoy thump'n and popping along with low end grooves, you must realize it takes a very solid power supply design and amplification section to re-produce a clear low "B" and a clean high “C” along with superior speakers and cabinets to support it. The sound quality and the quality of sound is evident when you here it thru my DNS-115 and DNS-210 cabinets.

My Eden Rig is over 20 years old and is still going strong, with the support from Eden, along with the relationship that I have with Eden Electronics and now with DNA the DNA 1350 amplifier along with the new DNS-115 and DNS-210 cabinets I use the quality, sound, functionality and reliability is now even Better!

What is DNA?


To Sum It Up

Versatility, Power, and Reliability

Here's some news about what our artists have been doing lately

Love The Low End


This morning, we heard from endorser Ron (B-6) Buckner of Buckner Funken Jazz. The band is one of Denver Colorado hottest Funk acts and is always doing something fun. For instance the band played a series of festivals date including the People’s Fair, the South Park Music Tour, and were also billed with the Neville Brothers at the Saturday Night Live Black Tie Gala Benefiting the Denver Center for The Performing Arts. They even played Denver’s Supreme Court! Moving forward, the band will perform at Denver’s Oktoberfest. Through it all, B6’s DNA rig keeps him grooving. Man, you know me, he said “I’m your biggest fan. As long as I’ve got my DNA  System, I know it is going to be a good show"

              Thank You Mom For Taking This
                                            Picture February 1971


Ron Buckner (better known as B-6) has been playing bass since he was 15 years old using any bass any friend would loan him. February 1971 Ron purchased his first bass guitar, a Hofner Violin Beatle Bass replica that he purchased for $69.95 he could not afford the additional $20.00 for that HIGH POWERED 20 WATT AMPLIFIER), from (believe it or not) Radio Shack and after a while he decided to removed the Realistic label from the head stock because other bass players were teasing him about his Realistic bass guitar, at that time everyone was rocking Fender, Gibson, Ibanez and other well known bass guitars. After a few years he purchased an EB3 copy. He converted the living room stereo system into a bass amplifier and later discovered that was not a good idea!

That was my bass amplifier (you know the stereo systems from the 60's that were a half a block long) by installing switches that re-routed the turntable needle signal outputs to a hidden guitar input jack.

This invention was to be used only when his parents weren't home. Upon seeing the new bass guitar in his bedroom Ron's father asked, "What are you going to do with that "Thang?" His Dad  later discovered the conversion when his Booker T & The MG's Green Onions "45" record would not play (Ron forgot to throw the switches back).

Ron thanks his mother for running interference for him from his Dad (He Was Angry) after the stereo system discovery was made. He thanks his father for the challenge and the inspiration that gave him the drive to become one of Denver’s better bass players.

Ron's very unique style of playing combines the solid backbeat of graceful thumping with straight-ahead peaceful in the pocket grooves. His influences came from his high school friends Larry Dunn of Earth Wind & Fire, Ted "Funken" Duncan from Denver, Larry Graham of Sly and the Family Stones, Graham Central Station, and most recently Victor Wooten of Bella Fleck and The Flecktones.

Ron has played with Sky, Specter, The Regroovanators, Splash, Impulse, The Jazz Project, Ace Butler And The Aces, The New "G", Sammy and Friends, Silver Jeff,  Carl Dixon, Linda Theus-Lee, and host of other bands in California and in Colorado. Ron recently recorded with Portrait, on their "Without A Second Thought" CD, Katie on her Angel Eyes CD,  Park Peters on his "Because You Asked" CD,  and was requested to record bass tracks for the following: "Oasis Product Line" commercials, "Down The Drain" By Regan Mizuno recorded at Raging Waters Records, and "The Ugly In Me" for the group Sans Visaj on their latest CD "Pearl" also at Raging Waters Records.

He is currently playing in the Buckner Funken Jazz Band with his brother, Rod Buckner, on trumpet. Ron also collaborates with various Denver-area artists and groups laying down studio grooves for them. Ron is the owner of Brainstorm Recording Studios, Brainstorm Records, and (link to BRI Digital Images,) subsidiaries of Buckner Resources Inc. He produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered the CD project for the band "A New Elysium, Ticket To Nowhere. Produced and mixed “Russell Edwards' CD, Edge Of A Fall", Produced mixed, and mastered the CD project for GateKeeprz self-titled CD GateKeeprz. Produced, mixed, and mastered Buckner Funken Jazz's newest CD "Get Your Groove On" He is working on his solo CD entitled "Direct Current".

Best - Tronics Pro Audio

Endorses Ron Buckner (B-6)
I only use very high quality cables so I was a little skeptical about the bass guitar cable that was sent to me.
The doubt went away just after I un-rolled the 15 foot bass guitar cable, the quality and workmanship of the cable was solid.  As far as sound I compared both cables and the Best - Tronics Pro cable seemed more transparent.
