Over the years I’ve played through a lot of different bass amplifiers and speaker cabinets; In the order I owned them… Peavey, Trace Elliot, Eden, SWR, Markbass, Bergantino and where rigs have been provided at gigs and festivals Hartke, Gallien Krueger and Ampeg, among others I probably can’t remember. I think that’s pretty much all the main manufacturers 🙂
A couple of years ago I realised I wanted a setup that didn’t just sound great but had more of a classic look too, something that I would feel comfortable playing in front of, whatever the gig and whoever I was playing for. I made the move to using Aguilar amplification and I haven’t looked back.
Aguilar gives me everything I think a bass amp should. I love the big, warm, punchy, characterful sound and I love the simplicity of the designs. I love that their new speaker cabinets come in a range of classic vintage-inspired colours. Most of all, the community of Aguilar players is growing all the time, populated by lovely and talented people. The amps not only look and sound great on stage but they give a big, world-class sound in the studio.
Check out their products. They might have just what you’re looking for to satisfy your needs as a player.
For those who are interested to know which Aguilar gear I use, here’s a list (from top to bottom);
