Hi All, I am new to this forum or at least it has been a while since I if ever posted. I am looking for a new amp to play live with. Small clubs outdoor wineries, nothing big. I was playing a Fender Bassman 300 Pro which was cool, quite heavy but never really could dial in the sound I was looking for. OK so I am in my 50's and back in 74' I bought my first real bass amp and when I did I chose the Acoustic 370 over the Ampeg SVT, at the time the Acoustic was the first solid state amp with EQ. Since then I have sold that a couple years ago along with my 73' Fender Precision, damn that's a stupid story for another time. I have since played through Carvin Power amp and a ART Night Bass rack set up, then a Traynor YBA200 new tube amp, pretty cool for the price but I had my eye on the Fender so I had used that for the past 4 years and recently sold it as I also have the TC RH450 which gives me a pretty damn cool sound through my Mesa Powerhouse 4x10 & 1x15 cabs. It is light and so easy to set up. However I am leaning towards getting a tube amp to gig with again. I am not a real heavy duty muscian that has the great ear for sound but I do know when I hear it I will be happy. OK I play cover tunes mostly R&B, Motown and 70's dance music, some classic rock. Nothing loud or hard rock, so I am mostly looking for a clean sound with soul, nice clean low with all the other stuff guys talk about. Oh yeah so I tried a Mesa M-Pulse 600 and didn't really work for me then tried a Mesa Big Block 750, worked for a week or so, wanted to like it but nah. So I now think heah dummy back in 74' you should have bought the Ampeg SVT still going strong today and so I started looking and ran across the Heritage and well USA Assembled sounded good to me and would have already bought it but the price is just a bit hard to justify. OK so I came across the Aguilar DB751, have heard the Aguilar name and seems to be pretty popular, but it to is like the Mesa M-Pulse 600 with the tube pre amp and the rest is SS. So not a great deal out there comparing the Ampeg to the Aguilar DB751. Mostly looking for opinions on the differences and the Ag is as much as the Heritage and will I eventually want the SVT. I know I am all over the board, somewhere I read a post from a guy that had owned so many different bass amops and finally after years of trying to find the one for him he bought and SVT and he is finally happy. There are some really cool threads about the Heritage and a couple guys that are so happy they bought them, I am very close to making that decision but then checked out the DB751 and thought I owed it to my self to check them out too. Opinions?
