    SOLD!!! Gonna miss this bad boy.

    I've been wanting an Ampeg B100R for quite some time, and there is one for sale by me for a good price. I'm also eyeing a REDDI box.

    Of course, as always, the only way I can afford new gear is to off another. In this case, it's the beastly Aguilar DB750.

    This one comes with a Telefunken preamp tube (smooth plate; second version) in the V1 position; a fairly pricey upgrade but a dramatic improvement in opening up the sound (clearer highs, punchier mids, tighter bass). Two tubes are Sovteks; the fourth is an Electro Harmonix.

    I'll also include four brand new, never used tubes (three Mullard 12AX7s and one EH 12AU7) as well as the four mentioned above.

    It has the rounded chrome handles and rack ear faceplate, the manual and power cord.

    $1,295 shipped in the CONUS; save shipping and pick it up near Detroit.

    No trades, please.

    QUOTES FROM PLAYERS (mostly here on TB):

    "It really is an awesome amp. If I went pro and had a roadie toadie to carry it for me that's the amp I'd pick"

    "The tonal characteristics of the DB750 are like an SVT on steroids. . ."

    "If you are more oriented toward big, fat, tube like tone, the DB750 seems hard to beat.. . .the DB750 is a HAMMER. . ."

    ". . .the girth/power is addicting. It kills both other amps and hard to explain unless you try one. . . Being an engineer by day myself I really appreciate it from a design, build, and quality standpoint."

    ". . .as much as the DB750 seems to sell, and fast, they are re-bought by the same seller."

    "Ah... but that 'wallop' is what makes the DB750 so special!"

    ". . .what really makes the 750 rock is that absolutely unlimited well of power under each note."

    "I use the DB750 because I am addicted to the extra headroom. . ."

    "The DB750 is hard to beat as an amp... yes it's heavy, yes it has limited eq. BUT the combination is an incredible amp."

    "I feel the 750 is a true classic and just oozes class and quality."

    ". . .it's just hard hitting, big and thick. . ."

    "I owned and sold a DB750 and if given the chance I would very much purchase another."

    "One commonly known phenomenon surrounding that head is that it often gets sold off by someone only to eventually be re-bought."

    "It's super-balsy and punchy. . ."

    "When we look back at all of this in 10-20 years, the DB750 will be a landmark amp."

    "The DB750 is a really great amp."

    "I do think the DB750 is the best hybrid on the market."

    ". . .the DB750 is absolutely the most reliable bullet proof pound it out for 5 hours straight amp I ever owned."
