              Solid little head! Great for small gigs, it's easy to transport and packs a punch! Works great with a single 15 or 2x10 cabinet. This is a real hands on product review by EpR@ Sam Ash Music Ontario.

                    This solid state class D bass amp puts out a whopping 500w at 4 ohms which is insane considering it weights only 4 pounds! 1 1/4 inch input with 3 band eq, drive control, and fits into any gig bag, this is the ideal bass head for bass players on the go! Check one out at Sam Ash today!

                      The small size is misleading when referring to is power. Although small in size I was able to plug it into my 8x10 cabinet and was blown away by the sound. A definite must have for any bass player.

                        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!

                          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.

                                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.
