BASS TESTS FOR ACCORDO MAGAZINE
recently, I've been involved as bass tester by the team of the important italian resource for guitar and bass players, the Accordo

Each audio clip was recorded directly from the new smallest Aguilar amp, the Tone Hammer 350
. I can truly say that, the word "small" fits only the sizes of this amp because, the punch coming from this little toy, was fantastic!
