    Ok, so downsized from an Ampeg VR to this Aguilar db750. Not exactly 'going lightweight' but half the poundage. Up to now, through my Berg NV215, its sounding (and feeling) great. Had a db680 a long time back and this is so far living up to the aggie tone, albeit with less mid control. I'm lovin the treble and Bright Switch, which are working really well with a passive CS Jazz and flats. First gig next weekend

    Dave Boonshoft is a closet Ampeg fan :D and definitely did some voicing stuff to his DB and TH amps to make them appeal to SVT lovers.

    I think you should have checked out the SVT 4 Pro first :D but I have a lot of respect for Dave and Aguilar.

    I rented that amp a several years because of it's reputation. I couldn't get a sound I liked out of it. It sounded pretty much the same as my Mesa M-Pulse 600 that I didn't keep for the same reasons.
    However I was told to give a try to the DB751 which I might like way better because of the different mid knob set higher.

    If you use aggie amps use them with aggie cabs. Smacks ass in that combo, especially with the db series.

    For my taste though I found out that aggie gear gives me a certain sound "compression" from the start that I find a bit too much for me. I do love my aggie db410 though, despite the "poundage". :D

    So what's the slamage rating? Is it listed in the spec sheet with all the other specages?

    My buddy @armybass had one at some point but unfortunately I didn't get to check it out before he lightened his whole rig.
