Based on the popular Tone Hammer pedal this superlight bass head combines 3 bands of flexible EQ, a colorful "Drive" control, and 500 watts of power in a 4 lb package. The Tone Hammer 500 will give you the legendary "Aguilar Sound" while still fitting into the accessory pouch of most gig bags – the perfect choice for bass players on the go.

"The Tone Hammer 500 and SL 112's are amazing - I love this rig! It sounds like it's three times the size and the tone is perfect." Ben Sargeant - The Script

"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 - Dave Weckl Band

"Is that a Tone Hammer 500 in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?" Gary Willis - Slaughterhouse 3

"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 - Beck
