    No mention of Aguilar...for shame for shame.

    Aguilar has a tone that's somewhat of an Ampeg/Eden hybrid. More full rangy and balanced than Ampeg, but warmer, more organic sounding than Eden stuff.

    I recently discovered Aguilar myself, but it didn't take long for them to make a believer out of me though.

    Peace out.

  5. I voted for SWR, because they seem to have the best amps out there. Edens have great cabs, but when you are talking Amps, I have never been very impressed with the Eden sound. It just seems very , bleh. SWR's just seem to have a really warm sounding tone, that really brings out the sound of the bass.

    I have an AMEG! (kidding, but really, what is an ameg?)

    In all seriousness, I second JT.

    I will have to say Aguilar. I have never heard an amp that is as warm and smooth yet has such incredible articulation as the Aguilar does. That is why I bought one. It is one of the best sounding, and most versatile amps out there:)
