Aguilar Tone Hammer Preamp & Direct Box
Based on our coveted Tone Hammer amplifier, the Tone Hammer preamp/DI is our swiss-army knife for your pedalboard. Featuring fully sweepable midrange frequencies in addition to bass and treble controls the Tone Hammer gives you studio-inspired EQ paired with a pristine D.I. for the studio and stage.
To give this tone shaping unit the ultimate flexibility we introduce our proprietary Adaptive Gain Shaping circuitry (AGS). AGS allows the player to kick in an additional gain structure allowing you to go from modern tones to vintage, tube-like saturation with the stomp of a button. It’s 18 volt operation gives the Tone Hammer plenty of headroom to reproduce the most dynamic playing styles and it robust design makes this pedal truly road-worthy.
