    Considering a new amp and cabs for jazz tones. I'm currently using a Genz-Benz Shuttle 9.0 and a Epifani PS112 cab. A good sounding pairing and will probably keep the Shuttle but I'd like to get a pair of lighter cabs and a different head. I've played the Mesa with a Subway 112 cab and thought it sounded good. Most of the players whose tone I admire are playing Aguilar but the nearest dealer is several hours away so I'm not sure when I'll be able to try one out.

    My question is for those who have played both, do they share the same sonic playground? Or they quite different?
