Product Description

Hartke combos let you cover all the basses for both small- and medium-sized venues and project recording situations. Engineered for maximum coverage and tonal flexibility in a portable format, they combine control-intensive Hartke amps with Hartke's own unique, aluminum-cone drivers in tough, road-worthy cabinets with shockproof metal grilles, reinforced corners, and recessed handles. Like all of their bass systems, Hartke combo cabinets are carefully tuned and calibrated to match the particular characteristics of the bass driver they're combined with.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (114 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great sounding bass amp, well made, easy to move around, priced right, and great factory support if you need it. At least that's"
Sound: Very puchy and clear sound when you want it, and yet by adjusting the tone controls on the amp you can creat the older types of bass sounds such as you might get from an old Fender Bassman amp, or say an old Ampeg amp. You can easily get a wide range of tones. Its amazing how much sound comes from only one 12 inch speaker! Feature: Features are quite good. I wish though that they would have included an extra speaker jack on the rear of the amp for adding another speaker cabinet if you wanted. Quality: Mine came perfect right out of the factory carton. Solid and built like a rock, yet very light weight, (about 42 lb). No problems here. Value: Seemed like a good value to me after comparing other brands and prices. There are cheaper amps out there-but you get what you pay for I guess... Manufacturer Support: I wrote to Hartke about a minor problem with an exsisting speaker cabinet that I perviously bought and got a personal letter from the president of Hartke who dealt with my problem in a very fast and profesional way. The support was great! He couldn't of been nicer and interested in pleasing me as a customer, and then even sent me a Hartke T shirt and free bass strings. I was blown away by their efforts! The Wow Factor: Looks good to me -basic black. I'm not a real fan of colored vinyl amps that are done in colors like maroon or purple and what not. I want an amp to look like an amp- not like vinyl seats in a 50's Cadilac. Overall: I did a lot of homework when looking for another amp for smaller venues and I feel right now Hartke was the best and most sensible choice to make. Some of my decision making was based on these kind of reviews from actual customers. Most of them were very pleased with their Hartke purchases. When picking a new amp, price wasn't that much of an issue for me. I could of gotten the larger Hartke model with a 15 inch speaker -but most people seemed to think that it was neccessary to- so I got the 12 inch speaker model and it still sounds great. A little bit lighter to carry too which is nice than the larger model. Fits in the backseat of a car and you don't need a van to move your equipment around which is neat. The 12 inch sidekick amp has plaenty of balls and the titlt back design is something new to me which is a great idea! You'll like this amp a lot.

"Kickback Really Kicksb***!"
Sound: Great little combo that has a very full frequency response. I play 4 string bass and it all comes through with no booming or absent frequencies. At VERY high volumes, the mids get a bit punchy, but it always keeps up and cuts through the mix. Feature: Simple intuitive controls and reliable components. Ease of Use: The shape control offers a wealth of options for tone control but you may need a bit of experience to use it to your advantage. Quality: I have been kicking around a few of these kickbacks for 20 years with no reliability issues. One is constantly rolling around in the trunk of my car and I depend upon it to perform every time I plug it in. Value: Pay little, play a lot and just enjoy. It's a no brainer and using this amp simplifies many situations. Go into the board or just practice with it in your studio. Use it as a monitor on stage. Manufacturer Support: Pick up the phone and call. You may be surprised to find Larry Hartke himself answering your call. He is quite the gentleman and very knowledgeable in the design and use of bass amplifiers. His personal support and courtesy know no bounds. The Wow Factor: It's just a really smart design. Overall: I've been trying to replace it at any cost and can't. Now if I need more volume for a large gig I just daisy chain a couple together.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
