    Some Excerpts from 'Bass Player' magazine, March 2002, regarding the Aguilar GS112 cab which received the 'Top Tone' award for a 1x12 shootout:

    "Smooth. Balanced and Clear, without sounding too hi-fi."

    "Sounds very deep. Low note fundamentals sound full and fat with a barbegue sauce-like thickness that extends into the upper midrange"

    "relaxed and open midrange character"

    "low-mid fullness"

    "smooth, full-bodied richness"

    "If you think big and fat is where it's at, check out the GS112."

    Note: I read a thread here on TB shortly after the article came out and many Tb'ers disagreed with the outcome. Try doing a search for "1x12 shootout" or similar. I own the GS112 and find it does the job and I am happy with it. Maybe you could add which specific Aguilar cab you had in mind.
