    I called up Long & McQuade in Toronto asking about Aguilar cabs, and they mentioned that they had a couple of slightly used Aguilar heads in stock. I wasn't looking for a head(I just picked up a DB680), but it turns out they only wanted $900 for it(US)! These things list at $3795 now, so I grabbed it! It has some scratches on the top and sides, but the face plate is perfect.

    I used to own one, and ended up trading it when I needed more volume. Boy did I regret that! It is by far the best sounding head I have ever played through. I am playing mostly Jazz now, with the occasional Funk gig, and this head is absolutely perfect! It sits great in the mix, is warm and articulate. When EQ'ed right, it has more than enough volume. I am happy:D

    That's excellent Adrian. You already know how sweet the tone is, but i'm sure with that deal you just got, it's even sweeter! :cool:

    NO KIDDING? 9 large? That's a pretty sweet deal!

    I was real impressed at the tone of the used one that I tested out through an old SWR Big Bertha. And they insisted that the lowest they would go was $1500.

    I'll bet that it sounds great for jazz gigs. Congrats!

    Well $900 rougly converted from Canadian to US. It was a really good deal. The head had been sitting there for months, so they dropped the price to clear it. I am really loving it! It is such a sweet sounding unit. Really complements my basses.
