The Aguilar sound?

  1. I´ve read about these amps. Can anybody describe their sound? Ampeg, EBS? They seem to be really cool!
  2. I recomend you do a search if you haven't done one already. I've heard lots of people say that Aguilars sound sort of like an Ampeg, more specifically "an Ampeg on steriods." I'm not really sure what that's supposed to mean, and I think terms that realate steriods to amps and basses are way overused.

    Anyway, I would describe the Aguilar sound as being very warm, but modern at the same time. Ampegs sound a lot more colored to me, and they're a lot more raw sounding. Aguilars sound very refined to me. I don't think they sound at all like EBSs either. EBS amps seem to be very high fi sounding, and don't have as much warmth as an Aguilar.

    All Aguilar gear has a harmonically rich sound. At least to my ears. I've owned a lot of gear over the years.
