That signature Aguilar sound now comes packed in a superlight bass head. Inspired by their Tone Hammer pedal, Aguilar created the Tone Hammer 500 micro-amp. It fits 3 bands of flexible EQ, a "Drive control", and 500 watts of power into it's incredibly slip 4 lb frame.
Praise of the Tone Hammer 500
"The Tone Hammer 500 surprised me. I expected anemic, flat tone from something so small. Instead it'sounded rich, full, confident, and loud."
- Justin Meldal-Johnsen of Beck
"I couldn't believe my ears when I plugged into the Tone Hammer 500 for the first time. The fact that you can get this much power and tonal control out of a 4 pound amplifier is nothing short of amazing. I was blown away."
- Adam Nitti of Dave Weckl Band
