Riddle: What is slim and black and has 3 holes at one end, but none at the other? Answer: The plug I just got from my "new" Aguilar AG 500-112C combo. I just ordered this from Music123, and it was "not factory sealed", but guaranteed PERFECT condition. Great, if I can save $300. I tear open the box, set up the amp and take out the cord, and see the image below. So I call Music123 and they gladly order me a new plug for free. In the meantime I can use the one off my SWR. Now, with that somewhat funny happening aside, I plug in and start to play. I'm hearing very annoying vibrations and I'm thinking "eh, it's probably just the basement making sympathetic noise again". Bzzt, wrong. I realize it's coming from the head, so I take the head out of the combo and just move it in my hands and I hear BZZZT, BZZZT from inside, which is what is making the buzzing noise (very loudly I must say). Great, I wonder what this could be. As I take out my screw driver to take a look, I discover, STRIKE #3, some of the screws to the cover are rounded out past the point of no return..or should I say, no turn Needless to say, come Thursday or so, this pile of perfect condition is going back on the big brown truck for a refund. I probably am not going to get another. Not because of these problems, but honestly, I bought it to get something different than my SWR because I THOUGHT I didn't like what I was hearing. It turns out I think I actually like my WM 2x10 & 2004 better. The aguilar is nice but 1) The saturation channel IMO is useless. Everything just sounds muddy, dim and lifeless. The regular channel doesn't seem to have even as much volume as my SWR, and mine is 160W vs. Aggies 250W. The tone is warmer, which I wanted, but it just seems really flat, and "far away" sounding. It's not bad, it's just not $1300 good IMO I think this is a sign to just stick with what I've got and not be so damn picky. As I side note, I even think I prefer how my amp "sits" in my area. It's higher, and I can put all my little accessories on the head (wrenches and screw drivers etc..) Even the tuner fits nice and snug under the knobs on the "ledge" the head has.
