Getting the Most out of Your Tone Hammer
With quarantine forcing so many artist and musicians to hunker down at home, recording music remotely has never been more important. While many of us can’t yet play together on stage in front of an audience, remote living has allowed us the opportunity to connect with musicians all across the globe while at home recording. In this episode of Aguilar Radio, we sat down with Aguilar President Dave Boonshoft to get his tips for making the most of your Tone Hammer Preamp DI – one of the most beloved products in the Aguilar line-up. With a wealth of recording experience and history, Dave will share with us his wisdom to empower you to record professionally at home.
Keep It Funky
Holding down the incredibly funky low-end for artists such as Jamiroquai, Annie Lennox, Tina Turner and more is UK bassist Paul Turner. Join our host Jordan Cortese and Paul as they chat about the future of Soul and RnB, the dynamics of playing stages and arenas with Jamiroquai, and the sound and feel bassists should be striving for both on stage and in the studio.
The Great EQualizer
In this episode of Aguilar Radio, we chat with none other than Aguilar President Dave Boonshoft! Join our host Jordan Cortese and Dave as they chat about all things EQ, including the new DB 925, what makes broadband EQ so special, and the “Aguilar Sound”.
Just Say Yes to the Gig
In this episode of Aguilar Radio, we chat with The Roots bassist Mark Kelley to talk about the benefits of making yourself available to people and music, and how developing a great “feel” in your performance has much more to do with how you’re listening than how you’re playing. In addition to The Roots, you can catch Mark every night holding down the bass chair on the Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon with his Tone Hammer 500 and DB cabinets.
From Stage, to Studio, to Songwriting
In this episode of Aguilar Radio, we chat with renowned bassist Kaveh Rastegar to talk about how to develop your songwriting chops from a bassist perspective. Kaveh’s unique position as both a touring and recording bassist has led him to pen many hit songs for heavy-hitters like Bruno Mars, CeeLo Green, Meshell Ndegeocello, De La Soul, Dawn Richard, Kimbra, Marsha Ambrosius and Ciara, among many others.
