    Okay, this will generate controversy, but if you had to choose any one "top-box" amp head to cover a variety of musical styles (from jazz to gospel to rock to slap), what would be your choice? Assume that price is not an issue here, and that you have some good cabs (e.g, Bergies or Edens) to complement your choice.

    Your opinion? Thanks!

    aguilar DB750

    i dont own it, but IMHO, its an amazing tone machine. too bad it weighs 50 lbs.

    controversial enough? :smug:

    Yamaha BBT-500H - it has presets and lightweight.

    Or just a straight power amp, QSC, Stewart Audio, and then add a couple of preamps.
     
  4. Either an Ampeg SVT-4 pro or a Mesa big block

    My vote goes for the Schroeder 1210 or 21012.
    :D

    (sorry- figured I'd mention it, cause it usually gets a nod in each thread.)
