    Thanks for that! Wow, right on Houston and Broadway. Cool.

    What a great set-up, and a wonderful feeling company. That is about as 'handmade' as you are going to get these days from a company putting out the volume of products they do. Very impressive!

    Seemed like everyone was working hard except Dave B.:p

    Nicely done. Do they build the spkr cabs at the same location? I've been a big fan of the DB series cabs for a long time. Thanks.

    Great video, I like the small assembly. Aguilar are setting themselves up to become a legendary amp maker for the forseeable future by limiting production and careful QC. I wanna work there and build tone hammers all day!

    I would love to make the switch from Quality Control in the oilfield to Quality Control for Aguilar...hmm, sounds like a retirement goal!

    Now I'm really tempted to buy a Tone Hammer 500.

    Kinda funny how I walk by that intersection at least twice a week, but I had to buy my Aggy rig 1200 miles away from MF to save on tax and city retail markup... oh well, just proud to own this company's products. Cool video!

    Wow, these guys are really doing it right. This tour inspires alot of confidence in Aguilar products. I love the fact that the amps are assembled by hand by the same person and then given a good once over for quality control before being boxed up.
