    I joined the 750 club recently, purchased from a fellow TB'er....thanks Steve(burk48237)

    My question is this: Those of you that have a 750, what cab configuration do you use/recomend?

    I have Mesa 2x10 + 1x15 desiel era(RR) cabs now, they went great with my old 400+ mesa that I sold to a friend......these cabs absolutely matched the 400+, but the Aggy is a different beast and I want to bring out the best of it(I am paticularly smitten with the Bergy cabs, at least from what I have read here at TB)......

    I use mine with an Aguilar GS410 and 2 GS112s. Great great sound. But I'm really planning to get the new S810. I just love 810 cabs and that one seems very tempting.

    Peace...
     
  3. I'm currently using mine with a EA VL-210 and a Ampeg BXT210M. Sometimes I'll throw an Ampeg SVT15e into the mix, but I generally don't need it. The 750 is HUGE through the EA.

    if you wanna stay in the Aguilar family, the GS212 i tried w/ one was pretty righteous. just a smoooove, fat, rich fricassee of Aguilar goodness.

    another killer combo is w/ an Epifani T310. waaaaay more punchie, and seems to milk that silky high end of the epifani cab.

    then there's a facet of gents on this board who LOVE their more neutral Accugroove cabs w/ the 750.

    all in all, its tonal velcro and will stick to whatever you slap on it. which begs the question, what about the Mesa cabs do you not like?

    I use one of three, depending upon what sound I want. For a modern sound it's the Accugroove Whappo Jr.. For "old school," it's a Bergantino NV425. For "let's play quietly" I use an Acme B2.

    El Whappo and Berg NV610...I tend to like the NV610 the best because of the way it sits in a mix so it gets around 80% of my playing time....The amp sounds AMAZING through both cabs, just a matter of taste...Also, I think a more flexible amp like the Thunderfunk or DB680/poweramp might be a better match with the Whappo...it is definetely a cab that shines with EQ!...

    Thanks for the replies!

    The Mesa cabs are exelent, though very heavy....I have used the 1x15 alone for a few jazz gigs(fretless electric) and it went very well......The guys commented right off on a "warmer" sound than the lil' GK 2x10 combo I have been using( I have loved that amp VERY much, and it has seen tons of small combo jazz gigs...but I have to admit it's not in the same league as the buttery aggy)

    I decided that since I picked up a SCHAWEEEET new amp, what better excuse to get new cabbage to go with eh?

    Oh , and I wanted to get the kinda output I can get with the 2 seperate Mesa's I have now, but with ONE reasonably sized cab ......(or mabey a versatile stack of 12's eh? ...heheh)

    For that reason, I thought Berg....Especially due to the awsome reviews they have had here....

    BTW, I live near Seattle, so when I get down to buying, I'll have the oppurtunity to A/B em at BASS NW!!

    D-410XLT. I haven't had a chance to run it with both the D-210XLT and the 410 but, based on the sound of just the 410, I'm going to bet that it dominates.
