Product Description

What is Hydrive?
HyDrive transducers represent a revolutionary improvement in bass speaker technology and a major leap forward, fusing paper and aluminum in a roadworthy speaker design that is more robust and efficient than anything available.

With Hartke's HyDrive series, you get the best of both worlds: the warm tone of traditional paper cones and the clear, punchy attack of aluminum. HyDrive's patented Hybrid Cone Technology produces a speaker that uses an outside paper cone to push a warm, deep low frequency and an inner aluminum cone that produces mids and highs that cut, yet still remain sweet.

One of the most important advances with the HyDrive speaker is its power-to-weight ratio. A HyDrive speaker weighs 40% less than traditional speakers and delivers 250 watts for the highest power-to-weight ratio of any bass speaker available. But the innovation runs even deeper. Because of its cast aluminum frame and neodymium magnets, HyDrive speakers operate cooler and deliver more reliable power handling at peak performance.

HyDrive 210C
During the development of the HyDrive combos, all of the crucial aspects that go into designing an exceptional bass combo were intensely considered by both HyDrive engineers and professional bass virtuoso Stu Hamm. Of course you need enough power to ensure you're heard amidst a band in live performance applications, not to mention the importance of roadworthy durability to guarantee your amp can withstand the trials of heavy gigging. Combine these two factors with advanced tone-shaping capabilities and seamless performance and you have the HyDrive 210C bass combo.

The 210C houses 2 x 10-inch 150 watt HyDrive neodymium hybrid cone drivers and offers 250 watts of clean linear power. A massive toroidial transformer and internal protection circuitry help protect the amplifier and speaker, allowing the 210C the ability to handle virtually any passive or active bass with plenty of power.

The concentration on designing a durable bass combo cannot be understated. They wanted to be sure that the 210C would stand up to a heavy regiment of touring and playing, so Hartke used only the highest quality plywood, extensive bracing and dado joinery. Hartke also used vinyl covering, a steel grill and steel corners to be certain you have the best protection when you're on the road. The 210C also features the original Kickback design, allowing for better projection in live performance situations. As a result, this combo is not only resilient, but also aesthetically gripping, providing a visual stage presence that is contemporary yet elegantly classic.

The ability to completely sculpt your sound is greatly enhanced by Hartke Shape Control and Bass Attack Overdrive. Also, 7-band EQ plus bass and treble shelving give you an assortment of options with regards to shaping your tone to meet any standard of bass playing in any genre of music. This combination of revolutionary engineering and innovative design results in the most versatile bass combo on the market.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "This should be your next amp!"
Sound: The sound from the 2-10" speakers are punchy and so clear. I play an Ibanez 5-string through it and the low B sounds so great and not flat. It's 250 watts of pure solid thump! And the 7-graphic eq makes dialing in your tone so easy. You can play classic rock to country to r&b and anything in between on this bad boy! Even when turned up at around 200 watts it still has clarity and doesn't rattle. Feature: Best features on here is...everything. The bass attack overdrive section is great. It can make your sound turn from soft to gritty and it isn't over-done. And of course Hartkes Shape feature is great. Gives a nice sound curve. Ease of Use: The manual is great. Explains everything to get your started and gives you tips on how to dial in to certain sounds. Even has a section where you can write down your own custom setting. Quality: This thing is built like a tank and not that heavy (71 lbs I think). The new speaker designs make it lighter. When I unboxed it there were no problems. No dents, scratches or knicks. And the metal grill is cool looking. Value: Let's face it we all know 99% of the time you get what you pay for. This is a mid-priced amp thats worth EVERY PENNY. And it has Hartke quality! If Stu Hamm, Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey and many others use them you know they are awesome! Manufacturer Support: I gave it a 10 but to be honest I never have had to deal with their support system (knock on wood) which is a good thing! I been playing Hartke for years. The Wow Factor: It's big and sexy. Overall: I expect this to last me years. My other Hartke amps have. I bought this to upgrade. You can achieve so much with this amp an you can depend on it.
Style of Music: Rock, funk, jazz, r&b

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Absolutely Awesome Amp"
Sound: The sound is gorgeous; crystal clear, with tons of depth and power to spare: a volume level of "3" is loud enough to rattle the windows in my studio. I can't imagine any small-to-medium-sized venue that this amp couldn't handle, with headroom to spare. Feature: The variety of tones you can get with the built-in compressor, shape, overdrive, and eq is amazing. And if you need more than that, there's an effects send. Two other nice pro features are the balanced XLR out (with selectable pre or post signal routing) and the ground lift switch. Ease of Use: The amp sounds great right out of the box with all tone controls totally flat, and there's a card on the top of the bass when you first open it up with 3 suggested sets of settings for the various tome controls to make rock, slap, and r&b tones - these show you pretty much all you need to know about the tone controls to dial in your own sound. And if they don't, the owner's manual walks you through all the settings in detail. Quality: The amp looks and feels rock solid; I'm sure it will last for years. Value: No question about it. In fact, the difference between this amp and other amps I've owned and heard at this price point is night and day. If I'd had to pay $900 or $1,000 for it, I still would have thought I got a great deal. At just over $600, it's a steal. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had any reason to contact the company so far. The Wow Factor: The wow factor to this amp is the sound; it's just astounding. Overall: By far the best bass amp I've ever had (in the interest of full disclosure, this is only the third bass amp I've ever had - before this, I had a Fender Rumble 150 and an Ampeg Micro VR Half Stack - I'm still pretty new to playing the bass; I was a professional bass trombonist and vocalist for over 20 years, but my smoking finally caught up with me, and I don't have the wind to perform professionally on bass trombone or voice any more).
Style of Music: Anything that somebody's willing to pay me to play, but if I'm playing for fun, it's usually jazz, rock, or fusion.
