    So, you're looking for a new bass amp. Here's a little quiz...

    Are you tired of having your guitar player drown you out with their Marshall stack?
    Are you tired of having an amp that has so many knobs it takes forever to dial in a tone (and you don't know what most of the knobs do anyway)?
    Are you looking for the classic tube tone, but don't want to haul around a 100 lb head?
    Do you like to feel your pant legs move when you play?

    If you answered yes to any (or all) of these questions, this is the amp for you.

    I have for up for sale my Aguilar DB750 bass amp. Aguilar describes this head as a perfect combination of raw power and enormous headroom. It's hard to argue with that description. This head pumps out 750 watts of pure tone into 4 ohms and 975 watts into 2 ohms. If youre not familiar with this amp, read the reviews and you'll know why this is the amp of choice for so many bassists.

    Overall the amp is in terrific condition. The only issue I need to mention is the gain knob has a little crackle to it if you move it back and forth. When I play, I pretty much set the knob and leave it doesn't really bother me. Other than the gain knob, the amp works perfectly.

    As a special added bonus, it comes with an Aguilar head case cover in the Boss Tweed. The head case is almost like new (a $200 option on the Aguilar website). Honestly, I just picked this up and I had a "what was I thinking" moment realizing this is more weight than I want to haul around at my age. I've owned 4 or 5 of these over the years, and they are still, IMHO, one of the best sounding amps out there...and that's why I keep buying them.

    Im not allowed to say really.
    Damnit! This always happens. As soon as I get my tax refund I blow it on gear. But I've always wanted a 750 or 751, and it seams I'm always looking around tax time, can't find it ever, then as soon as I blow my money 1 pops up. For the last 5yrs it's been that way. You'd think I'd learn by now to save it until it does pop up, but no....sigh.
