Excellent microamp
TrEr, 21.02.2015
To be honest I'm more of a vintage tube amp guy but I wanted to see what these new micro amps are capable of. The Tone Hammer seemed like a perfect choice as reports from various web forums are great and describe it as having a "tubey" sound. I not so sure I agree with that last bit. Perhaps the SOUND is kinda tubey but the RESPONSE certainly isn't. Still, it is one of the nicest solid state amps I've tried. Not as sterile sounding as some other solid state designs, definitely on the warm side. Very versatile with lots of controls to shape the tone. Personally I prefer a simpler layout but I guess it's nice to have options. The eq is very powerful. The relationship between the gain and drive settings can also be used to shape the tone/response of the amp. Unlike many other solid state amps it actually seems to have a "sweetspot" (which I'm sure will differ with personal preferences).

The output volume is impressive for such a small amp. I would compare it to 100-150w tube amps. I've been using it for rehearsals with a progrock band (loud drummer, Marshall 50w Plexi, Hammond/Leslie) and it worked great. Gigs in small/medium clubs would be no problem.

This amp will probably not be the first choice for tube enthusiasts but it's excellent as a backup amp or for situations where portability is an issue. It will easily fit into the front pocket of a gigbag. Fans of solid state amps will probably love it, unless they are into a very clinical "hifi" sound.

Great amp for the price!

Great amp... But only for some
StephenJ, 11.10.2014
Really light small amp, fits in front of a gig bag with no probs! Love the tone of this, but some may find the treble eq control set a little bit too low in the frequency range... If you have an active bass it's a problem you may be able to counter by using your on board pre for a better slap sound. I took a star off the features because it has no headphone out or line in... Built in USA by people who love bass and it shows!

A dream amp for 99% of the bass players out there!
05.09.2014
I was in the market for a small amp after owning a few (Gallien MB200, ATS LBA500, Ashdown Little Giant 1000, Markbass LittleMark II and a few others). It's the first Aguilar product I own and I must say it's up to expectations... looks well built and look, feel and sound are just high-end.
It's not an amp full of features like compression, tone-shaping extras like contour or whatsoever - it's more a simple device for the gigging bassist.
I like it... my only gripe (and it's very personal and only due to my taste) is that the high frequency control isn't set on the right frequency and isn't very powerful (or at least, not powerful enough to make the amp bright like some more "hi-fi" competitors). The mid controls is nice and the drive is very useable. Certainly worth the price. I'm not regretting taking the 350 against the 500, it's certainly loud enough for most situations (if not for all of them) and I like the low weight and small dimensions. Would I buy it again? Yep. MAYBE if I had to swap it for something I'd like to try the SWR Headlite, just 'cause I like bright tones but I wouldn't go back to chinese made amps like the MB200 - small but crappy in both tone and sound.

Überbewerteter und auch in die jahre gekommener Amp
87oclok, 21.05.2017
Es ist kein Geheimnis: Der ToneHammer 350 färbt. Toninformationstreue ist hier echt ein Fremdwort. Wer das mag und diese Klangfarbe will, kann sich umgekehrt die Frage stellen, ob das eigene Instrument vielleicht einfach gar nicht den eigenen Geschmack trifft. Anderes Thema.

Mir selber klingt der Amp zu wenig spritzig, nicht agil genug, nicht ausreichend lebhaft. Die Leistungsreserven kommen darüber hinaus (natürlich) schnell an ihre Grenzen.

Der Amp ist okay verarbeitet und die verbauten Knöpfe und Regler sind ebenfalls völlig ok aber auch kein top-notch. Die Bedienung ist selbsterklärend und einfach.

Die Ausstattung ist etwas mager: Zwar besitzt er einen Tuner-out sowie einen DI-out, aber z.B. keinen Aux-in, keinen Headphone-out und auch keinen Einschleifweg für Effekte. Der DI-out ist ok und rauscht wenig.

Der Lüfter ist für einen derartig kleinen und leistungsschwachen Amp imho zu laut. Von einem gesteuerten Lüfter kann zudem keine Rede sein. Falls der gesteuert ist, dann evtl. per Timer, mit Betriebstemperatur und Notwendigkeit hat das, was hier passiert, jedenfalls nichts zu tun.

Alles in allem ein nur mittelmäßig guter Amp, der mittlerweile in die Jahre gekommen ist. Mit der neuen/aktuellen Generation Digi-Amps kann der TH 350 nicht mithalten.
