    Sweet sounding and rare Aguilar DB 285 originally made in conjunction with Jack Casady. Kind of an Aguilar spinoff of the SWR Baby Blue 2x8 Cab. I love this one, but it needs a new home. Has one scraped area on the front, but the rest is in great condition. Includes cover.

    Local pickup or meet preferred in NY/CT/NJ unless you want to cover shipping.
    Open to micro head trades.

    • Two 8" cast frame woofers, one 6.5" midrange driver
    • Power Handling: 300 watts RMS
    • Heavy duty rubber strap handle
    • Custom crossover with variable midrange control
    • One Neutrik Speakon and two 1/4" inputs
    • 4 Ohms

    If it were just a bit lighter....amazing. This would be the perfect cab for my upright and ABG. Wow!

    This actually puts out a lot more volume and low end than you’d expect and is great for EB, too.

    are there any youtube videos on this ? i couldn't find any. I always imagine 8" to sound incredibly small...interested to hear how this sounds.

    Not that I have seen, but I also haven't really looked.
    This cabinet sounds fairly deep and has great control over mids plus can handle 300 watts - similar to a lot of 112 cabs. I'd say it could compete with my old Aguilar SL112 volume-wise and still come out better in the tone department. It sounded fuller than a Bergantino CN112 that I recently compared it to side by side.
