    Hey everyone,

    I had a quick question to myself just a minute ago. I just recently bought a Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 and two SL112, just an insane setup. Anyway, I was questioning myself, what would a Tone Hammer add to the Tone Hammer 500 if put together? Is it even necessary? I'd like some sort of input, or maybe some of you have this setup.

    Thanks,

    -Adam

    Well, the pedal is essentially the eq section of the amp, so it would seem unnecessary. But, you could set it up as a 2nd channel.

    It also offers you a backup DI that is good sounding and AFAIK reliable.

    Thanks guys, I was sort of thinking that it might be a little overkill. Since, essentially the Tone Hammer 500 utilizes the same preamp as the DI.

    It could be a nearly identical and very compact backup that could be plugged into the power amp of almost any amplifier with an FX loop!
