This Aguilar is lightweight highly reliable and great sounding class D bass amp. an ideal bass head that helps me dial in sounds from old vintage bass amps, clean and the tube driven sound, as well as having a distinct tone especially when boosting the mids and playing blues or jazz styles.
i believe this should be a staple in a bass players arsenal. This is one of three bass amps i own and this gets the leading role when playing small venues and bar gigs.
its punchy and has grunt at the same time. I have been running recently with an 8 ohm cabinet and that limits the output to around 200 watts.
I would have wanted the amp to be equipped with a switch so that it can run full power with both 4 ohms and 8 ohms cabinets.
I do not find the drive knob musically useful beyond 9 o'clock it just becomes a muddy distortion.
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.
