Dear bassists, dear HEVOS adepts,

After nearly 30 exciting HEVOS years, it is time to do “other things” as it is called. That means that we, Ben and Rob, will transfer ownership as of the 1st of April 2020. With some pride we can state that we have built up the company’s reputation in the past years. HEVOS is near our heart, it is ‘our baby‘, so it was important for us that in the future HEVOS would not only continue to exist as a brand, but also that the high quality of the amplifiers and loudspeaker cabinets would remain guaranteed .

That is why we have been looking for a worthy successor last year, and we have found it in Adrian Maruszczyk and his company Public Peace. Adrian is a professional bass player, educated at the Maastricht conservatory, and has worked hard in recent years to set up his music company Public Peace. It is now one of the largest bass centers in Europe. Recently, Public Peace has grown further into a broad music company where quality and the love  for music are of paramount importance. His slogan “From player to player” is correct.

We had two important requirements: the HEVOS brand and its high quality standard had to be retained, and the warranty for existing customers had to be guaranteed. And so it will, in the hands of Adrian and his team.

Public Peace is located in a large farmhouse in Germany, just east of Kerkrade and near the city of Aachen.

For the many users of HEVOS equipment in the Netherlands and Belgium of which the warranty is expired, Wil Hofman will provide service as of April 1st 2020. Wil owns Hofman Elektronica in Wijchen near Nijmegen and Wil and HEVOS have known each other for many years. As a specialist in electronics and acoustics, Wil has won his spurs, and what’s more important: he knows the HEVOS amplifiers and loudspeaker cabinets like the back of his hand.

Midget10 set

At the picture you see my Midget10 set and my bass guitar. I can be brief about the bass: it is a Sadowsky, I have owned it for a long time and I am very satisfied with it.

And I use my Midget10 set also  for a long time now.  I designed it myself and built it with my own hands, together with my companion Ben.

The Midget10 combo is powered by the 400C bass amp. You can find that combo at a number of Dutch conservatories for many years now. Both bass guitar departments and the double bass departments use it. We are quite proud of that.

I use the combo with the extra Midget10 loudspeaker cabinet in my bluesband. As you can see it is only a small set. Is that possible, that tiny set in a blues band, you might wonder? The answer is: yes. That is not only because of the high-end 400 Watts power amp that we use in the amplifier, but also because of the great 10 “loudspeakers that not only go from deep down to very high, but keep the sound transparent. And this set is also ligth weight!  I’m happy with it  (and my bass)!

 

 

 

 

Test 800S

 

In a few weeks we will know how the test of our newest amplifier, the 800S, worked out. German magazine Gitarre & Bass is known for its detailed and reliable reviews. As soon as the March issue is available we will inform you!

Happy Christmas!

Nice picture sent to us by Lukas Müller (Switserland). Lukas uses his  Hevos 2×6 cabinet tilted so that his amp matches the small stack :-).  Hevos 2×6 cabinet & 2×6 combo, small size, great sound!
