    I'm going to be honest, I think my search is over. As of Wednesday, I'm the proud owner of a DB750...

    1586.

    I first played one probably 3 years ago, when our producer first recommended I check out Aguilar. I played every piece of Aggie gear I could (except the 728...) and fell in love.

    I've never been so happy with an amp. I literally plug in, set all of my EQs flat, and play. It's almost wierd to me not switching switches and turning knobs during a gig/practice. I put it straight to work on Wednesday night. Nothing but compliments on how awesome the bass sounded. I'll be honest, I cracked more than a little smile. I think everything piece of gear I own just compliments each other so well.

    My brother (no musical experience) even said "That sounds better than anything I've ever heard. It KICKS!"

    I'm so happy with this setup. I just had to share.

    The only thing I have to decide now is the next cab I get. I'm thinking a GS210. I need something smaller for gigs where I don't need a 410, and it'd be nice to be able to add the the 410 when need be. I toyed around the idea of adding a GS412; but I'll probably hold off on that. For now.

    Also debating on a 112 or two. If anyone has any suggestions; I'm all ears.

    Congrats

    The store near me is finally getting in some aguilar stock so I will definitely have to check it out
     
  3. Congrats!! And welcome to the "Big Daddy Aggie Club"!
     
  4. Ahhh another Aguilar convert! I though SWR was my destined bass amp of choice...then from the clouds an aggie DB750 and GS412 decended into my bands practice space...then later on a DB728/DB680 decended and i realised that Aggie and Me is the only way to be!

    Have ya ever though of adding a 1x15 Aggie to the mix? Get ya really bumping for shows.

    I don't know if "convert" is the right term... ;) I've been using Aggie cabs for quite a while, and had a 359; but sold everything at one point to change up my rig. I was never happy with my sound since then.

    I've thought of adding a 115; but my 410 is 4 ohm and they don't make the 115 in 4 ohm IIRC. Unless I ended up getting an 8 ohm 410...
     
  6. I just thought I'd make my post sound cooler by useing the word "covert" but oh well. I was unaware that the 1x15 is only 8ohm and upon inspection you are correct my friend! Well then how about adding a 2x12 under it?

    Ha. I guess I am a convert.

    I'm not sure about a 212. I want something smaller. Granted, it does weigh 30 lbs. less than the 410. I'm really leaning towards the 210. Size-wise, I think it would be nice. For smaller, coffeehouse type, gigs I could use just the 210; but then have the option of adding it to the 410 for big gigs.

    I love the sound of 610s too. Not crazy, like say an 810; but not "just" a 410. 410s are by no means weak. I just like the sound of 6 10" speakers pushing some power.

    It'd be cool if Aguilar made a 4 ohm 115... *cough*
