Aguilar SL 410 vs. Aguilar DB 410

Recommended Posts

Hello all.  I have Aguilar equipment.  So I'm familiar with and use it professionally.  I'm about to get a 410 cab.  DB 410 vs. SL 410.  I know theres a major weight difference.  Would I be losing any phat punch and tonal quality going with the SL 410?  Please give me your experience and opinions.

I used a DB410 and DB115 with a DB750 head and the combination was phenomenal. For smaller gigs I left the 115 at home and just used the 410 and it was just as good. Tight lows and good mid range.

I sold both cabs due to weight (and space) issues. I believe the SL cabs are lighter but perhaps not as light as other neo cabs.

Still got the DB750 head though. Can’t bear to part with that.

Probably find more info in the Amp and Cab forum.

Gigged both a number of times with a tonehammer 500 head. Personally I find the DB410 a far more enjoyable cab to use, but it's certainly heavier and chunkier. I did like the SL but found it a bit weak in comparison. I actually now use the Fender Neo 410, as I found it to be similar in tone and dimensions to the DB, but a similar weight to the SL!

      Moving my Aguilar AG500 dual channel head if you're looking for a whole lot of bass for a whole lot less cash.
      Another user listed a head (not the same one) on BC couple of years ago for £500 (link below), previous listings on ebay (Japan) for £600 (mounted) and £1115 (non mounted, go figure) and on reverb in the US for £400 + Shipping(links also below). Can't presently find any live sales on ebay...
      Notes: has been used, I'm the second owner (to my knowledge), but it's in good shape. Minor aesthetic note - status bulb works but cover lost, operation bulb is out but cover in place. Illustrated in video!
      Would prefer pick up but will courier (at buyers expense and insurance). Further pics and vid: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1n5oluLmDP0FnQyMq3tSwb1Ir06g1-2d4?usp=sharing
      Holler with any questions!
      Ta, DeepEnd.

      Fantastic and lightweight amp at 4.9lbs, with plenty of power and clean headroom at 700watts.
      Works great with a 4ohm 4x10. Can also be used at 8ohms and 2.67 ohms.
      Power Output: 700 watts @ 2.67 or 4 ohms, 350 watts @ 8 ohms
      Preamp Section: Solid State
      Power Section: Class D
      The bass and treble boost buttons also add plenty of low end definition and top end sparkle.
      Included is a very well padded Aguilar gig bag. I also have original packaging for shipping.

      I have the above for sale.
      The neck pickup is a genuine Seymour Duncan SJB 3N Quarter Pounder...an absolute brute of a pickup! It's passive, but has a gainy growl.
      The bridge pickup is actually not connected to the electronics at all...it's just a crap pickup for show...you can obviously replace this with another pickup.
      But for now, this bass has the neck pickup as the only working pickup.
      This was originally an off-white coloured bass, however about two years ago, I painted over it in black, and clear lacquered over the top. 
      Being my first attempt at laquering, it's not perfect, and there are some small spots that are either not fully painted, or have some "drip".
      If you're like me, you'll want to customise your own basses, so the paint job could be an extra project for you!
      Apart from the pickups, everything else on this bass is original.
      A bit of buckle rash on the neck plate, and some scuffs on the top of the headstock, also some marks on the side of the neck due to sweat and lots of playing
      The frets are smooth and a little worn due to afore mentioned playing.
      Also, the reason that I have pieces of string holding the balls of the main strings in the bridge is that they were cheap strings from eBay (which actually sound good!), but the balls were too small for the bridge holes...but all other strings are fine (I've used Fender, Ernie Ball and Rotosound).
      Great instrument that will last for a very long time. 
      Will post to mainland U.K with a courier for extra £6.
      Paypal or internet banking (I've sold loads on here before, so no worries there)
