Aguilar Amplification Announces the SL 410x Bass Cabinet

The SL 410x joins the massively popular SL 112 as part of Aguilar’s SL line of cabinets.

New York, NY (January 22, 2016) -- Aguilar Amplification is pleased to announce the SL 410x bass cabinet. The SL 410x joins the massively popular SL 112 as part of Aguilar’s SL line of cabinets; the first super lightweight bass cabinets with no compromise in tone.

The SL 410x offers an unprecedented balance of performance and weight. In fact, at only 49 lbs. (22.23 kg), this compact cabinet is almost half the weight of a traditional 410 bass cabinet! This cabinet is available in 4 or 8 ohm configurations and can handle 800 watts RMS. It also features four custom-voiced woofers with Neodymium magnets and a phenolic tweeter with variable level control. With a frequency response of 44 Hz–16 kHz, the SL 410x provides the deep lows, articulate midrange and smooth treble for which Aguilar is known for.

$1,349

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
