Tone Sculptor and Guardian Angel in one!

11.02.2016
From now on, I will always have this in my gig bag. It's a multi-purpose tool that has features that you might not always need, but some time they will save you and your live performance.

Pros:
+ GREAT EQ and tone! Transparent, has parametric mids control and very sweet sounding treble range;
+ Has a DI out with switchable pre/post;
+ Output hot enough to drive a power amp;
+ Built-in overdrive, which definitely sounds nice on moderate settings and can be used as a cab simulator;
+ 18v for more headroom;
+ Takes batteries

Cons:
- Overdrive (AGS) doesn't have a dedicated volume, thus jumps in volume significantly when engaged, rendering it unusable for mid-song activation;
- AGS itself sounds 'unnatural' on higher gain settings;
- Little control over AGS sound;
- No dedicated cab simulation, except for AGS on low gain;
- 18v only

Adding treble introduces some noise, but that makes sense. The AGS is interactive with the EQ and was a good idea, but the execution is poor. I understand that it is meant to be left untouched mid-song, but why put a footswitch then? A box of that size could at least have one or two controls for the overdrive, where at least the volume jump could've been addressed...
Nonetheless, the DI and the preamp is great, and the AGS is a feature that can be used with success. Parametric mid control is a saviour!
Highly recommended!

The clue is in the name

This pedal by far the best I've ever owned.

The range of tones that are achievable with this pedal countless, to suit any style of playing (with fingers or pleck, slap etc.)

The AGS function adds another dimension to the amount of possibilities that can be set. It can create a growling and driven sound to a p bass or more of a boost to the range of a jazz bass.

pros: the build quality is line with all Aguilar products, it is sturdy, reliable and great for use on the road and in the studio.

cons: the fact that it requires 18v of power, but it is clear to see why this is so, as the amount of power that this pedal packs is unbelievable.

This pedal is definitely worth considering as I've owned other bass pre-amp/ di pedals in the past and this pedal is on another level.
