Had a chance to play the Ag500 at Rockin Robin in Houston, Texas. Great sounding amp! The drive was full, got a great jack bruce tone. Lot of tone shaping. Very authoritative amp. Have the sense it will cut through just fine. Played through an Aguilar 4X10 with a Fender Jazz fretless neck/Warmoth body passive bass that played and sounded great. Also saw the 400 watt peavey tube head. That thing is bigger than my house. I don't know how much it weighs, but I slipped a disk looking at the damn thing.
