Impressed.

Drewmidorn, 26.12.2013
I bought this as a light portable amp and as a spare. I usually use an Ampeg SVT 4 which I love but is heavy and has had one too many bumps so is off for repair. This tonehammer is fantastic. Using it with an SVT 410HLF cab it has plenty of headroom and sounds great. The sound is tight and punchy and the DI is fantastic (better than the Sansamp Bass DI due mainly, I think, to the Mid control). The drive control is responsive without muddying things. It fits snuggly into my M audio rucksack too so I shall be taking this on abroad gigs. Whilst it's not an SVT, it doesn't quite have the bottom end and funnily enough feels more "efficient" and modern sounding, it's very good. I emailled Aguilar to ask if the amp head could be used just as a DI without a speaker plumbed in and they said yes.

Aguilar's reputation is not a fake!

marco_elwray, 14.12.2017
I wanted to change my old (and beloved) Trace Elliot GP12SMX to drive my DB112WH. It was really complicated to choose a new amp. I hesitated between this one, the AG700, the Mesa D800, the Eich T-900 and the Genzler Magellan. I finally decide to take this one for two main reasons: 1. I don't really need a lot of power (like the AG700), 2. I really trust Aguilar in their product quality.

Handling: Perfect, lightweight, one star less because there's no factory way to rack it. Not a big problem for me I don't use a rack. But good to mention.

Features: Two big regrets here; no headphones out like on the Mesa D800. You can't record by the DI with the amp muted. I like this kind of feature. That's OK. the EQ is outstanding, once you get how it works with the drive. I read some critics about the fans (cooling); after using a Trace's fan, I can tell you that is QUIET.

Sound: I expected to be far from my 90's Trace very colorfull sound but no, it can be as neutral as hot. Once again, not disappointed by Aguilar;

Quality : perfect.
