An extremely high-end preamp designed for studio and live applications.

The sound inherent in the Aguilar DB 680 Tube Bass Preamp unit is warm with a smooth feel. The warmth and sweetness in the tone are produced by 5 vacuum tubes that give the preamplifier 2nd harmonic emphasis. Players will find that the Aguilar preamp responds to their use of dynamics far beyond other models.

2 switchable inputs, active/passive mode, dual parametric EQs, plus treble and bass shelving controls
A unique "deep" control employs a proprietary, tube-driven resonance circuit to provide 2 levels of boost in the 30Hz region.
This circuitry gives unparalleled depth when used with 5-string basses and adds superb, sweet thickness to vintage-style instruments

If fat tone is a priority, the DB 680 should be a part of your rig. Order today!

Top of the line!

By Jay-V7HGY

Wow, this is top of the line! The deep switch is amazing! The parametric EQs were a bit confusing at first; it's not as simple as "low mid" and "high mid." The buffered effects loop is really nice. Aguilar really knows what they are doing - this preamp is perfectly voiced for bass guitar. No compromises in the construction either. You simply won't find a better bass preamp!

Not Really Worth The Price

By Sock Monkeys From Hell

from Newport, RI

See all my reviews

I used this preamp as part of a bass rig in this NYC reheasal studio and to be honest, for the price, it is not worth it at all. It's not that it sounded bad, but I felt it is ridiculously expensive. I could practically buy two full Peavey stacks and get the same sound and be loud as hell. I actually prefer Peavey. Of course, this is my preference, it might not be anyone elses.


Very happy!

By Scottyg

I have had one of these for almost a year now. It does take some time to get the "feel" of the dual parametric set up. Now that I do I can dial my tone in just a matter of seconds now. I mainly use this live and funky rooms are now no longer a problem. The DI is very clean and versatile. The one thing that this does not do is distort in a way I like. This pre is very clean and sounds amazing. As far as distortion goes I have other ways of getting that. I have not used the crossover in mine don't really have a use for it at this time so I cant comment on that feature.
