    Hi I've just ordered classic IV p bass from moollon. It will be my first p. I'm also getting a new amp so wondering would a p go best with Aguilar or reidmar? Thanks

    I really liked the sound I got with the Aguilar AG700 using my Moollon P IV. You should consider that as well.

    Although I have never played a Moollon I have owned the ToneHammer 500 and currently own the Reidmar 750. If you want a dark, thick, wooly head then get the Tonehammer. If you want a very hard hitting head with what seems like unlimited headroom, a nice compressor and the ability to add a bit of drive then get the Reidmar.

    Both are good amps - your sound preference will decide.

    Obviously it is a preference in sound. I love the riedmar's sound and clarity personally.

    I guess what I'm really asking is which would allow the true voice of the instrument to be heard. Unfortunately no one stocks reidmar here in Ireland. I've tried the tonehammer and it seems like it would colour any bass with its own tone but from what I've read reidmar is more about letting the instrument sing uncoloured. I'm gonna have to make trip to uk and compare. Thanks for replies.

    I would agree with that the reidmar lets the true tone of the instrument come through. Might still be worth a trip to see for yourself.
