    Comments about Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 Bass Amplifier Head:

    Aguilar has always been known in the bass community for high quality craftsmanship and high quality tones. This amp is very light in construction, so it's easier to pack up and bring to the show but, there is no sacrifice in the quality of the chasse itself. With the built in 3 band EQ, separate Drive Control and Effects loop, this amp gives you tons of different ways to shape your sound!

      Comments about Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 Bass Amplifier Head:

      Aguilar amps have amazing tone. This amp in particular delivers great tone with lots of power in a very small size. But do not let the size fool you, this amp is loud and proud! The tone is great and has easy controls to dial in the exact sound you want. Time and time again this head out performs every other bass amp around. This is a real hands on product review from Zak at Sam Ash Buffalo Grove.

            Comments about Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 Bass Amplifier Head:

            The first time I tried this amp out, I knew it would be able to cut through any mix! The signature Aguilar sound is smooth, punchy, and dripping with mojo. I have it paired with an Aguilar SL112, and it's the easiest rig to carry for almost any gig I play.
