    Ebay misadventure. Got an Aguilar GS210 cab enroute to pair with a DB359 from ebay that unfortunately arrived damaged and as of tomorrow will be somebody else's problem. The question is: If not a DB359, what? If you were tempted by a DB359, what other heads would you be looking at?
     
  2. I have very much the same question...except with more power...

    well, Fred at Divided By 13 is now making a sweeeet Ampeg like head in the Aguilar vein.

    Fred's an new comer guitar amp guy who first got acclaim outfitting lots of LA studio cats like Paul McCartney's right hand man, Rusty Anderson, and Beck's foil, Lyle Workman, and a few of Alanis Morisette's sidemen. he's even built a few amps for Jakob Dylan of Wallflowers fame.

    if his rep on guitar amps is any indication, i'm sure his tube bass amps rock just as much!

    other than that, you could always go the Mesa 400+ route.

    if you dont mind going lower wattage, there's always my fav, a 60 watt Alessandro Basset Hound. simply AWE-INSPIRING tube tone.

    dunno, but give Fred a call. heard he's a nice cat.

    a few of us on the PRS Gear Forum have been drooling over his ERT33 and FTR37 amps for a while now. and the bassist in me is starting to go GAS'y for one of his bass heads... :p
