    I don´t have kids, but I´d pick the Aguilar anyway:D
  5. Kids first! Whaddareya, nuts or sumptin? Of course, if you have more than one kid, maybe you can compromise. Sell one kid, insure the other, and buy the Aguilar.

    If my Dad was a bassist I'd hope he would pick Health insurance.
    Which is what I voted for.

    Health care of course, I can wait for an amp. I've had enough medical crap go wrong to appreciate the value of insurance.
  10. If you get the DB750, and i know you have a GS410, then we'll have the same rig. I just purchased that rig and am just waiting for it to arrive. AHHHH, no patience. :D

    You'd maximize your ROI by insuring the kids, then putting them to work in a coal mine or something. Then, you can buy bass gear with what they make. Simple!

    Now if you needed the amp to enhance your sound thereby providing you with more opportunities for work as a bass player so you can then buy insurance for the children. This is in their best interest. Don't you see?:cool:

    I don't think anyone else knows what this is about. I do. This is bait.

  15. Of course it is. It was prompted by reading one of the most absurd and disgusting emails I've ever seen, after the person in question bragged about having just purchased the "world's first" example of a highly sought-after boutique amplifier.

    The person in question has continually referred to his "sick kids" not having health insurance as a justification for not forking over a sum of money equivalent to the cost of a 5-string set of Fodera Diamonds or two tanks of gas for a midsize sedan, yet has laid down $5000+ for decidedly boutique gear in the past three months. I'm sorry, but that's not acceptable. I realize that the individual in question makes his living playing out and, like most of us, wants the best tone he can get. Nevertheless, the Quest For Tone should always take a back seat to family concerns, period, end of subject.

    If I'm violating the usage agreement, I'm sorry, but the person in question is violating some ethical canons that bear far greater importance than the $20/year I pay for my Supporting Member status here at TB.

    Depends....What kind of amp do you have now?
  17. I'm glad to say that that person wasn't me, since i'm not old enough to have kids. Okay well, there are people my age who have them, but, no offense to those people, but bad decisions apparently.

    I'm sure there's a logical explanation, probably having something to do with fairies:rolleyes:

    Actually, I'm with you on this one. But everyone here knows that I would never bait someone.
