    I am an avid aguilar fan, I understand alot about the amps and love using them.. A couple of things I've never been able to figure out.... Names. I understand what the DB stands for but what about the numbers? The DB750 is self explanantory. What about the 359 (It's a 200 watt amp), the 728, the 680 and 659 and the 924? Does anybody know??

    I'll take a few guesses? Birthdates of yourself, family members? Some technical data, I'll never understand... I've purchased a few pieces of your gear... indulge me! :hyper:

    Come on, Uncle Dave, tell us a story! I was convinced for a while the other night, when I was packing up after a long gig at 2:00AM, that my DB 728 was labeled after what it weighs. Thank God I get over that the next morning!

    Well, I would presume that the DB part refers to Dave Boonshoft, but as for what makes a 200 watt all-tube head a 359, and a 400 watt tube amp a 728, etc., I'd love to hear the straight skinny!

    And I'd also like to know why it is that Chris Jisi (from Bass Player) seems to think that the 680 is a powered head, and that 12AX7's and 12AU7's are "power tubes". ;) [Hint: check out the Aguilar Company Tour to see what I am talking about]
