UTILIZATION

Simple setup ... the particularity ... the speakers plug into 2 Speakon outputs positioned at the back of the head.

Level knobs is pretty self explanatory ... they even thought the button to pause ...

Buttons bass adjustments, Mids and Treble are very accurate ... I plug my head on a cabinet Ampeg 410 ... it there's a very good bass ... well rounded ... which affects not acute ... made in all frequency ranges can be heard again ... with big bass (which is surprising given the size of the head)

By tale 500 w really have ...

SOUNDS

I play mostly blues rock ... my peculiarity is that I love the warm and round sound in the bass with up against a good offense in the treble ...

I play a Jazz bass Martines (micro CreI) and a Fender JB.

I only use very little drive ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 month.

Before buying it I went for a head Ampeg SVT Pro 3 ... The same day I tried an Ampeg SVT classic head ... there are no photo ... of huge bass .. a big power. surely .. the top ... but at 2000 €.

Then I tried the head mpeg svt Pro 3 also ... good stuff ... but in fact I was not impressed ... I was expecting a bigger difference with my head Ampeg SVT 450 ( transistor) ... serte pre lamp brings a little more ... then honestly I was afraid settings.

Finally the seller, given the way I play, I was asked to try the Aguilar 500 head ... and there ... big surprise .. its good attack ... simple and effective.

I think this is THE head of the transistor time ... not to mention the weight .... for the price ... at a given quality at a price point ...
