Dr Bonkers Bass Cab Classics™ Volume 18: AGI 4X12 Bass Cabinet IR Collection

$18.99 $10.99

Dr Bonkers presents the 4×12 Bass Cabinet IR Collection, which is based upon the Aguilar® 4×12 (with tweeter) DB412™ Bass Cabinet loaded with four 12 inch proprietary Eminence® speakers & Aguilar® phenolic tweeter.

The quest for tone that started Aguilar® began in the 1990’s with a preamp and soon spawned “must haves” for savvy tone-seeking bass players, like pickups, amps, pedals, and cabinets, like the cabinet that inspired this impulse response collection.

Dr Bonkers impulse response file tribute to this cab is featured in both Fractal Audio Systems® file format, WAV format, and a buy both bundle. Pull down on the menu below to see details on each pack.
