U2 Bassist Adam Clayton Playing Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 Amp and SL 112 Cabinet

U2 Bassist Adam Clayton Playing Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 Amp and SL 112 Cabinet…  U2’s bassist Adam Clayton, an Aguilar endorsing artist since 2008, recently picked up a Tone Hammer ® 500 amp head and a stack of SL 112 cabinets.  Known for his big, warm tone, Adam was drawn to his new rig because, despite its lightweight, it delivers a full, punchy sound.  “We are incredibly excited to have Adam playing through our Tone Hammer ®500 head and SL 112 cabinets,” comments Dale Titus, Aguilar Amplification’s Sales & Marketing Manager.

On U2’s recent 3-year U2360° World Tour Adam was backed up by a full complement of Aguilar DB 751 heads and an impressive wall of Aguilar cabinets, bringing Aguilar’s sound to over 50 countries.  “To have Adam now playing through our Tone Hammer ® 500 is further validation that even though it only weighs four pounds,” adds Dale Titus, “the Tone Hammer ® 500 provides a massive sonic experience.”
