I was reading the old thread that popped up again about the SWR user who had a crappy experience FMIC after they bought SWR. It made me think. I used a to be a loyal SWR user. I sold out prior to anyone knowing of the buyout and have recently pledged my alegience in Aguilar. I love their cabs. Although I play a Dememter pre. I have heard many good things about their pre's and power's. This company is one the move. They have great products as well as some big name endorsers. It seems that Aguilar is doing a great job of marketing and proving that they are the next big thing in bass amplication. I hope they never sell out either. I feel that Aguilar could be as big as SWR if they made a hybrid pre/power head similiar to the SWR 350, 750, and 900. This would appeal to alot of buyers. IMO, I think Aguilar made better cabs than SWR anyway. Eden is gone. SWR is gone. Ampeg is still left, for now. Hopefully the guys at Aguilar dont abandon their customers and become money whording pricks like Eden and SWR.
