I have an Aguilar 212, and like it. I see a good deal locally on an Epifani 310 NYC, and will try it out tonight. Anybody have comments on this comparison? I have a Thunderfunk 420 head, a jazz-style bass, and play styles related to jazz/funk, and occasional rock/whatever. I like the huge bottom, and room-filling ability on the Aguilar, but if the band is being obnoxious, it becomes muddy instead of supportive. I think the Epifani ought to be more articulate, yet retain a lot of low-end presence. They're practically the same size and weight. The 310 is actually a tad smaller and lighter, with a tad more cone surface area. I want to be the feelgood bottom of the sound for the most part. But when I take a lead, I want to be clearly in front. I do a lot of gigs without PA, where my gear needs to push the sound through people and to the back, without making the people in front upset.
