New Gear: Aguilar Amplification Introduces SL 110 Speaker Cabinet

Published

Aguilar Amplification Introduces the Innovative SL 110 Speaker Cabinet: Modern Performance, Classic Design.

Aguilar Amplification, an industry leader in crafting high-quality bass gear, is thrilled to announce the release of its latest design: the SL 110 speaker cabinet. Drawing from a legacy of inspiring sound, design, and performance, the SL 110 redefines expectations for compact bass cabinets.

Weighing in at a mere 23 lbs., the SL 110 holds the title as the most streamlined and portable cabinet in Aguilar’s lineup. But don’t be fooled by its size. It’s a powerhouse of sound that delivers focused low end, a balanced, rich midrange, and a smooth top end perfect for upright and electric bassists alike. Its unique extended depth and cabinet design provides a deep low-end extension that is often missing in many small cabinet designs.

Crafted for the modern bass player, the SL 110 effortlessly balances performance and practicality. Its hybrid design harmoniously blends the light-weight attributes of the SL series with Aguilar’s custom-engineered DB ceramic 10-inch driver, producing a sonic experience that bucks its compact size. Ensuring that bassists no longer have to compromise between sound and portability. “We envisioned a bass rig that could not only serve as an inspiring and practical rig for musicians at home but also one that seamlessly transitioned to a live setting, offering the same performance that our customers have come to expect from Aguilar,” remarks Jordan Cortese, Aguilar Brand Manager. 

Additionally, style and aesthetics are at the forefront, with the SL 110 available in three classic colors: Black, Chocolate Brown, and Fawn. Performance that captures the ear, and a classic appearance that captures the eye. Ideal for rehearsals, intimate gigs, and personal practice sessions, the SL 110 is set to be the must-have equipment for bass players who demand uncompromising sound without the weight or bulk.

Artist Update With Mark Egan, Cross Currents

I am sure many of you are very familiar with Mark Egan as we have been following him and his music for many years now. The last time we chatted was in 2020.

Mark teamed up with drummer Shawn Pelton and guitarist Shane Theriot to produce a new album, “Cross Currents” released on March 8th, 2024. I have been listening to this album in its entirety and it is simply superb (See my review).

Now, I am excited to hear about this project from Mark himself and share this conversation with our bass community in Bass Musician Magazine.

Review: Minuendo Lossless Earplugs Live 17dB

Review: Minuendo Lossless Earplugs Live 17dB

Minuendo Lossless Earplugs Live 17dB…

Minuendo Lossless Earplugs Live 17dB – Hearing protection has always been front and center on my mind because I love music so much, I cannot imagine my life if I were unable to hear.

You might remember back in 2021, we had a good look at the Minuendo Lossless Earplugs featuring adjustable protection. This system has a lot of very good features but there was always the question of how much sound attenuation to choose.

Now, the great folks at Minuendo have come up with a new version of their earplugs that has a set 17dB noise reduction. You still get a lot of the great features of the adjustables but you just don’t have to think about the specific sound level. In addition, this new version of earplugs comes at a very attractive price point.

Working-Class Zeros: Episode #3 – John Patitucci IG Video, The Summer Festival Gig, iPads on Stage

WORKING-CLASS ZEROS With Steve Rosati and Shawn Cav

In this episode we cover John Patitucci’s IG video about saying ‘no’ to the gig, the Summer Festival gig, and iPads on stage (sure it’s awesome but is it necessary?)

These stories from the front are with real-life, day-to-day musicians who deal with work life and gigging and how they make it work out. Each month, topics may include… the kind of gigs you get, the money, dealing with less-than-ideal rooms, as well as the gear you need to get the job done… and the list goes on from there.” – Steve the Bass Guy and Shawn Cav
