Awesome Bass Amplifier!
marc_f, 15.12.2014
I have previously played the Aguilar Tone Hammer Preamp directly into a power amp.
Since I was synonymous already very satisfied with the sound, but the heavy weight and the transport expenditure of my power amplifier + rack have moved me to order the Tone Hammer 500.

Even at the first review of the Tone Hammer 500 top part I was very impressed with the processing. This is just perfect.

After switching on and the first tones, it was clear to me that this is the amplifier I was looking for. The sound is very warm, defined and powerful as you know it from Aguilar.
Actually, for all stylistics and playing techniques to use, I find especially with rock and blues it fits best.

It is very noisy and has a lot of pressure (felt more than my 2x 700W power amp).
Even with a loud rock band with 2 Marshall towers and Hammond organ with 2 Leslies, I had not even half-turned it on a medium-sized stage (at 4 ohms with 2 boxes).

In my opinion, the gain control is genial, which from about 12 o'clock position compresses the input signal somewhat and thus provides for even more assertiveness without clipping or distorting.

One more thing about the fan control, after I had read some wrong reviews about it and tested this time:

The 2 fans are definitely temperature controlled. These do not go, as in some reviews to read, always after approximately 10 minutes automatically.
I ran the amp times for the test about 1 hrs without playing. The fans stayed out. In operation, the fans start as soon as the amp gets a bit warm - that is, temparature-controlled, and then run faster or slower depending on the load.
Only - once they are on, they do not go out anymore. But what I find quite good, because you definitely miss the problem of overheating, as is often the case with other manufacturers of digital amps. So, here too the Aguilar convinces.

All in all a really successful amp. Admittedly not quite cheap, but you get really very good quality offered and surely long joy with the Aguilar - absolute purchase recommendation!
