Hey TB! I recently went searching for a 1x12 ultralight cab for easy subway travel and then dropped the search after a few weeks and a few test drives at various shops - not because the need went away, but because I just got busy with other things. One of the cabs I had tested was the Aguilar SL112, which wasn't at the top of my list in the tone department, but was still pretty good and VERY light. Fast forward a few months: I'm looking in Craigslist and see that somebody is selling an SL112 with a Tone Hammer 500 head - with covers - for $550!!! Needless to say, I jumped at it. That was a couple of weeks ago, and it has since sat around waiting for me to have an opportunity to give it a try with a band. That opportunity came two nights ago, when I was able to bring it to a rehearsal in a decent sized room with a four-piece band. The guitarist and drummer in that band are what I would describe as medium/loud - certainly not crazy-loud - and the PA in the room gets the vocals plenty loud. I have to say I came away pretty impressed. I had to fuss with the EQ a bit at first to get some of the midrange boxy stuff out, but once I did, I was treated to a fairly old-school tone that was definitely loud enough to do bar gigs and maybe even bigger. Way to go, Aggie! My test was done in a 20x20 room that tends to be pretty boomy. I used a stock P-bass strung with rounds. I ended up with the controls not far from noon for everything, with just a little cut in mids (mid sweep around 11:00) and the master near 1:00. I ran the 'drive' knob at around 10:00. Just curious... where do you guys run them? All-in-all, I'm stoked at how much I was able to get out of a <30lb. rig. I'll be needing to drive to a lot fewer gigs!
