Those Aguilar GS112s are great aren't they?

I recently bought 2 used ones. I have an Nemesis NA320 and a Mustang bass, it sounds horrible. :(

 

Maybe my amp sucks or maybe my bass sucks?

 

:(

 

When i say sucks i mean fuzzy and unclear. I like a clean sound. Maybe the short scale bass lacks clarity? Or maybe the amp hasn't enough power or headroom; or maybe all of the above.

I dug the tone of my old one but I found that I needed to take a second one along even to rehearsals, which kinda defeated the purpose of having a compact cab. They just didn't put out enough volume for my needs.

 

 

The idea of a pair of compact cabs is

a) versatility

b) portability...being able to more easily/conveniently do load in/out

One big cab doesn't work well when your done with your bar job and want to accompany an acoustic player(or a few) at the local coffee house, or play for your worship service the next morning. I'd also beat the living hell out of my nice big cab if I had to haul it in my old hatchback, due to the f'ed up design of my hatchback. My back would hate me as well.

Yeah, those are fantastic cabs...it's most likely that bass.

I bought a pair of Dr. Bass cabs after the Aggie, they were smaller, lighter and put out more volume. One was more than enough for rehearsals and I usually brought both to gigs. They were what I was hoping the Aggie would be.

That's pretty much what I got this one for - also for those gigs where the bass is going through FOH so I don't need my big rig

Yep. Again, I loved the Aggie's tone but having to tote two to a rehearsal just to be heard got old pretty quickly.

 

Understood. :)

Just depends on your situation. I want a car with the type of rear that I can take a big cab, drop one end, and slide it in without tearing up the cab or the car. As long as I wouldn't have TOO many stairs at either end, it'd be ideal.

Kinda makes a good argument for a moving van and a paid roadie. I've actually been thinking of picking up a 215 lately. :freak:

I do prefer two, also. I think having one lacks some low end, not necessarily volume. Regardless, I love those cabs.

The GS112 seriously rumbled when I had my GK700rbII. Gorgeous, in your face tone. When I got my new amp, it really made the sound tubby and lacked a lot of definition, which led me to sell it in lieu of getting a cab that would "play nicely" with the new amp.

 

If I do a rock band thing again, I'm buying that GK/Aggie setup again. Killer rock tone.

Uhmmm, ya. And then there's the NV610. So many cabs, too little time. *sigh*

 

Yeah, the problem it actually HEARING an NV610 or the Berg 2x15. Then again, I travelled 400 miles to hear the Berg 1x12 & compare it to the Aggie & others. I know there are people around with the larger Berg cabs.

In the meantime, I should fill up w/GAS and find that Eden 6x10 to play thru. :D

I could have scored an NV610 for $600 about 2 months ago. I'm still kicking myself but ya, the 215. :freak:

No, you shouldn't. Trust me on this. :D
