Aguilar Amplification Announces the SL 212 Bass Cabinet

At only 45 lbs., this 4-ohm cabinet handles 500 watts RMS.

New York, NY (January 8, 2018) -- Aguilar Amplification, manufacturer of high-quality bass amplifiers, speaker cabinets, pickups and effects pedals for bassists is pleased to announce the SL 212 bass cabinet. The SL 212 joins its little brother, the SL 112 as part of Aguilar’s SL line of cabinets.

The SL 212 offers an unprecedented balance of performance and weight. At only 45 lbs. (20.41 kg), this 4 ohm cabinet handles 500 watts RMS. With a frequency response of 37 Hz–16 kHz, the SL 212 provides the deep lows, articulate midrange and smooth treble for which Aguilar is known for.

The SL 212 also features two custom-voiced woofers with Neodymium magnets and a phenolic tweeter with variable level control. The cabinet includes one Neutrik Speakon and two 1/4” inputs as well as a specially designed crossover. “We spent a lot of time working on the crossover design to arrive at the smoothest possible frequency transitions. The ultra-light ply and subsequent cabinet tuning were also critical factors in achieving the signature tone of the SL 212,” says Dave Boonshoft, President of Aguilar.

The SL 212 is in stores now carries a U.S street price of $1199.00.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one.

I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
