    I voted for sunn, i don't think any head could compete with some of their vintage tube amp heads.

    And EBS? Aguilar?
     
  4. I was torn. I love Sunn. I love SWR. I flipped a coin. I would take either, most likely.

    A-g-u-i-l-a-r!!! Never had the opportunity to try a Glockenklang.

    What's that poll? The product line from Musician's Friend???
     
  6. What if you like one manufacturer's amp and another's cabs? I like SWR cabs (I do like their heads too), but I'm using an Ampeg SVT for a head. Now, I'm not a big fan of the SLM Ampegs but the real SVTs just eat all other bass amps for sheer volume and great tone.(IMO on the tone of course):D:D

    With my vote, AMPEG TIES FOR THE LEAD :)

    Yeah where's Eden. I'm sure they'd be head-to-head with Ampeg and SWR.
     
  8. Eden.

    Where's Amplified Music Products? Where's Walter Woods? Where's Polytone? Where's Acoustic Image? Where's Waldo?

    This is a Musicians Friend product list, isn't it? ;)

    Vote: Aguilar/Epifani

    p.s. the Glock Rocks!
     
  15. Ibanez:D:D:D:D:D:D

    heheh, yeah it's a pretty narrow slice of what's out there. There's companies that we've never heard of out there, making amazing stuff.
     
  16. Aguilar---I'll never play anything else.

    My vote goes to EBS for producing some incredible stuff. I know it's not as well-known as some, such as SWR, but I think it blows SWR so far out of the water that the orbit is but a dot to an SWR!

    BTW, isn't SWR short for sewer?:D

    We're in the realm of personal opinion and tastes regarding "brands" here. This poll is not going to work.

    What aftershave brand do you prefer?
