    Bought a TH500 to pair with an Aguilar DB212 and just received the used 212 today from GC.

    Played the Tone Hammer through a couple of different cabs and none sounded like this. Was wondering if one of the speakers were blown in my DB212? It's the 4 ohm version. I decided to upload a quick video with some seriously sloppy playing just to document what I was hearing. Cell phone audio isn't great but you get the idea. The distortion I was hearing was only slightly enhanced w/ the cell audio.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, since I have no previous experience with the Aguilar products.

    Sounds like GC sold you a sh** speaker. There are a few stories on this forum about GC selling used and busted gear. I can't imagine any store doing that without a firm and clear notice to the buyer that the product is "as is". With a good speaker that amp should sound great. Call the store, raise some hell, get your money back and shop somewhere else. What did you pay for it ? A single db112 may not be much more expensive and has received great reviews with that head. A lot of people get a single db112 and add a second later as funds allow. I have a Bergantino CN212 with the TH500 and it sounds awesome. Good luck working it out, your work and money deserve better.

    Thanks for the advice. I got a pretty decent deal. $531 shipped. Doesn't matter though if it's defective.
