The AG 500 is Aguilar’s most versatile head, featuring two foot-switchable preamp channels and a fully adjustable Saturation circuit. Channel one’s 4-band active EQ provides full, clear tones while Channel Two’s 3-band shelving EQ and Saturation circuit give the bassist everything from tube-like grit to full on dirt. Backed by 500 watts and weighing only 18 lbs, the AG 500 is one of the most powerful portable bass amps made.

    "That Aguilar overdrive kicks ass (laughs)! I pretty much use it for the entire set on stage. I love that grind-y sound and it’s got enough bass to it - it’s the best overdrive I’ve ever used!"

    "I can’t work without it! The distortion in that amp is the best for my sound."

  • Steve Jenkins

    "One of the things that I love about the AG 500 is the distortion setting - once I experimented with it, I was hooked! Aside from that, it’s pretty simple and easy to use; I don’t find it hard to dial in my sound at all. I get really great results with minimal tweaking with whatever bass I’m using."
