    I need help(insert joke)... I'm stuck trying to decide whether to get the db750 or the m-pulse 600. The thing is I've only heard and played through the m-pulse 600. There's nowhere for me to try the db750 unless I buy it. So either I just suck it up and grab the 600 or (on a wing and a prayer) buy the db750. I read most everything I could find on either amp but still I'm unsure. Is there anybody who has had experience with both that could tell me if the 600 could approximate the db750's sound. I like Mesa but too many knobs/buttons for me sometimes, I'm simple. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    I should add that I'm trying to go for that old sound...(Jamerson, Pino, Saadiq, Graham....)

    I just got the Mpulse600. Its a fantastic head. Think of all of those knobs as "tonal flexibility" rather than a bunch of knobs. Whatever my head is set at EQ wise it always sounds good.

    There's a joke to be made in your comment a bout "a bunch of knobs" but I'm too slow to think of one. I used to have an m-2000, lovely sound but too many options for me and while the 600 has fewer options I'm still reluctant about mesa even though they are great.

  9. Not DB750 per se, but I love my aggie cab and have used a buddy of mine's aggie head extensively and it is heaven.

    My vote goes to Aguilar.

    I guess it comes down to how much you like the "flat" sound of the amp in question. Less knobbies to piss around with. I see your :rolleyes: and raise you a :eek:

    I've owned a Mesa Big Block 750, a Walkabout and I currently have an Aguilar DB750. While the Mesa stuff is good, if you are you looking for unbelievable head room, a classic tone (that's super easy to dial in) and something that will make your pants move when you stand in front of your speakers...the Aggie all the way.

    My current DB750 is the third one I've owned. I buy one, think I can find something with a similar tone that is lighter, find I can't and buy another one. They are awesome...

    Well...there's a HUGE difference in price so why don't you let that be your guide?

    why are you interested in the 750 if you've never played it?

    to those who say mesas have too many knobs, take a look at the bb or the fathom.
