    Prices are down at the dealers, and they're saying limited to stock on hand, is the DB750 discontinued in favor of the DB751? Should I stock up? Can't see any indication at the Aguilar site. Thanks!

    The DB750 is indeed going away. It used to say that on the Aguilar site, but I haven't been on there in about a week...

    Yes, it is going away in favor of the 751. If the price is right and the amp suits your needs then stock away.

    That's what it looks like, selling the stock on hand and done. Guess if a guy's on the fence, he better get on down...

    Hope so, because then I might actually be able to afford one!

    It states on the Aguilar website that the 750 is discontinued.
     
  8. This is killing me... I've wanted one of these for a while now and they are discontinuing them. I can't afford it but have an open credit line at the Friend.... ugh! Not sure I should go for it as I have never played one but everything I've read indicates it's the king of current production amps. Debating if I should sell my Peavey Classic 400 and Bongo to put money towards one...

    Credit = bad.

    Save your change and buy it used.
     
  10. Probably wise advice! GAS and sense don't go together...

    Once they're gone, I can't see the price do anything but rise, so if you can find a deal on one now, I'd probably snag it.

    You can find a used one all the time here in TB and on the 'Bay.
    Get one now before prices go up.

    Thank God I already have one,it's not going anywhere.

    Best price I've seen so far is on Ebay from Bass Specialties - $1849 BIN w/ free shipping.

    Now someone can tread the fine line of holding out for the price to go even lower but risk it running out of stock.

    Good luck to whoever! I've got mine and I am good to go, though I wish I can afford a backup.
     
  14. But won't the 751 be worth hanging out for? I mean its just an updated version of the 750 isn't it?? And it may be better to save your pennies for the new one.

    Unless of course the DB751 is indeed a superior machine; however, I think it's probably more the inevitable changes in manufacturing to keep the costs in line with what the majority of the market is willing to pay and that can be produced at a acceptable profit.

    I'm interested in hearing how the DB751's differently voiced EQ either adds, or doesn't add, to the already signature tone of the DB750. I"m one who is more in love with the feeling of power the Aggie gave rather than the EQ, which never quite did it for me. I always wanted more kick in the low/hi-mids.

    I'd say this is contingent on the success of the 751. If people decide that the 751 is trying to take the country out of the country boy, then the demand for used 750's will rise. However, if the 751 proves to be an all-around improvement, then 750's will be less interesting, and prices will fall.

    To the OP: I'd say right now, the biggest driver is the economy. Right now, nothing is selling for what it was worth 18 months ago. With hard times still ahead, there will be chances to grab 750's at decent prices. If you can't afford it now, don't break your bank trying to grab remaining stock items.

    i dunno, H-man...

    whether or not people have heard the 751 is sorta moot, cause cmon, we all know that the 750 ROCKS, and they're out there at blow out prices.

    so, if you have the coin, right now is the best time to get one that comes w/ free guaranteed peace of mind, i.e. that full aguilar warranty!!!

    but yea, 750's are built like flippin tanks, and at least IME, i havent heard of that many problems w/ guys using their used 750s.

    I still think that naming that amp the 751 was an odd marketing move. To me it connotes just a little bit of an improvement over the 750 which, IMO, is perfect already. They should have taken the lead from Boeing and named it the 760, then in ten years they could have come up with the 770. If they named the 750 originally for its 750 watts then they should respected that tradition and either named the 751 the 750+ or if they're going to call it the 751 they should have designed it to put out 751 watts.
    Oh well, I'm really really happy with my 750 and I wish Aguilar the best of success with their 751.
