    Here's another spin on an amp poll. I know they're not all in exactly the same league.

    Whoa! It looks like 100 percent of the respondents favor Eden!
     
  3. Aguilar has the best tone as far as Im concerned. Unfortunately with 2 700 watts cabs I will need more power the the 200 tube watts of my 359.

    Too tough for me, Munji. Different tools for different jobs. Plus, I'd be estatic if I had the opportunity to try them all.

    If pressed, I'd say Aguilar.

    So, I did.

    OK, I've got a question.

    All of the people who voted for Ampeg, I assume that you have never played an Aguilar, right?!?!?!?

    The only Ampeg that can compare to an Aguilar is a fully restored 1970's SVT.

    These new (Crate)Ampegs are OK for the price, but I have A/B'd the all tubes, the hybrids and the all solid states with an Aguilar DB359. NO CONTEST!

    Well, I voted EBS, but who wouldn't have guessed that one;)?

    I do think that this poll still excludes a few, but it seems a lot more reasonable!

    BTW: I was in GC this weekend (why, I can't explain) and the accessories manager was asking me about Walter Woods. I don't know anything about them. Anybody?
     
  17. I'm rather fond of My '94 Ampeg SVT-CL & SVT-810E. It sounds great and only cost $400.00 for the whole rig!

    Walter Woods are rare beasts, though not as rare as a Glockenlang. You have about as much of a chance of playing a Glock as having lunch with Bigfoot (BTW, Sasquatch hates vegetables;)) I've checked out a couple of Glock rigs and they sounded great. They should, they're one of the most expensive off-the-shelf-rigs available.

    Walter has been able to give what I consider great tone in a small package, with the option of having all of that AND high power in a small package, if you wish. Not cheap...and there's a waiting list.
