    This is very fine product. This amp is very loud. The low end is huge with a pretty clear but vintage vibe. The EQ is simple and effective. It's not a light weight, but not bad at all to move. Very well built from top to bottom.

  2. I've received a couple PM's about why I decided to sell so soon.

    Mostly it's not the best live tone for me in most cases. I do like the tone quite well but as I responded to the pm's, it's a bit too "buttery" or "pillowy" for me on the low end. I really like it a bit faster down low. If you like Old School/Vintage with clarity you would like this amp very much.

    There is alway a lot going on in our mix with horns, and busy keyboards. If we played more straight-up rock or blues most of the time I would be very content. Also my other "big" rig is more to my liking, but it weighs considerabley more, which was another reason I got the 750.

    I will say the DB750 was outstanding on a couple outside gigs that I did with it. One big heavy rig is enough... and... I want to try some other gear too.
