User Review

personally not packed - Reviews Aguilar Tone Hammer 500

Previous reviews for the technical aspects, not much to add more

UTILIZATION

the use of the heads is (too) simple, parametric mids are quite confusing, but it's pretty easy to find a good sound.
not tons of knobs to grind, it's simple, powerful and strong

SOUNDS

Well ... this is where it goes bad for me, I said that this is just my feeling, necessarily subjective.
While it sounds very very well, fairly typical and vintage rock, full of fat and lower midrange and has a nice sound ... but hyper:

- I think it colors the sound too much (from markbass, the transition is violent) and I feel that whatever the bass plugged (I currently one hepcat PJ pickups, a BB1600 and L 2000 U.S.) found that color Aguilar, for my part, it's nice at first, but it made me quickly inflated.
- I do not me to equalization, too simple for my taste.

OVERALL OPINION

Big flaw in my opinion on this head no independent volume on the DI (and I have not found the top quality DI), for me this is unacceptable.

I have kept barely a month not have too much trouble selling it elsewhere (good point is searched these small animals)

In my opinion a fairly typical head that goes very well in a lot of style, but not my came.Je am soon ironed on a Little Mark head tube ... no picture for me

I do not have that choice and if one day I reveux Aguilar sound, I'd stick a pedal tone Hammer in my head ... MB
