I haven't tried any of them, but what are your choices? The Aguilar by default will get the most votes, maybe rightfully so. What about the SWR though? Looks promising, I don't think I'd need a tweeter anyway, and weight is nice Also note, I'm not looking for super "hi-fi" tone (see here: berg, EA freaks) but more of an old school tone that handles the ranges and styles of modern 5 string and slap bass as well. Thanks all.
