zZounds Expert Review
We all know that combo amps are the most convenient way to amplify our basses. When I'm sharing a stage with a few other bands, and we have very limited time to set up, every second counts. It's way easier to throw a combo up on stage, rather than carrying the cabinet (often by yourself), then getting the amp head, using a flashlight to find the output, checking the horn control, etc. What you tend to lose in a lot of combos is the pure mass of sound for a larger venue. The Hartke VX3500 combines the best of both worlds. I have found this amp has a lot more tonal control than most combo amps offer. I am a sucker for a graphic EQ, and this Hartke's 10-band graphic EQ, combined with a 4x10" speaker cabinet, can give your tone the volume it needs to be heard, coupled with the ease of being all-in-one. In my experience, Hartkes are well-crafted, quality amps, and the VX3500 combo continues that tradition.

4.5 out of 5 (200 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "great buy, you wont regret it!"
Sound: Easy to find your sound on this amp head. Feature: i love the fact that you can turn the eq on or off, blend the tube or solid state preamp. Ease of Use: plug in your bass and jam away Quality: it would get a 10 if it were not for the fact that a screw came loose inside and shorted out the tube side of the preamp, so i have to run solid state all the time. Value: you get more than what you pay for thats for sure. Manufacturer Support: i have to send my amp 3 hours away for repair, its cheaper to drive it out there myself then to have it shipped over there, been procrastinating myself tho. The Wow Factor: the casters make it easy to move around which is what i needed, its was louder then all the other amps that were there when we would jam, my brother could hear it clearly a block away at the fire station we work at. Overall: a great great buy, i understand that mine came with a loose screw or something, but the warranty covers that, just a hassle to ship the entire amp instead of just the head.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazing Bass Amp"
Sound: The amount of control you have over the sound on this amp is amazing.. I use a Zoom mutli-effects pedal and a Morley dual bass wah.. and i can get some really amazing sounds of this thing.. plus you can get some pretty loud volumes, enough to do a fairly big venue with no problems at all.. I've already played several shows with this amp.. the smallest bar i played in I had just the Tube pre-amp turned to 4 and the master to 4.. filled the whole place with bass.. Feature: you have a high/low contour knob low at 100hz and high at 10khz. 10 band equalizer.. a tube and solid state preamp to choose your sound.. The amp inside of the combo can be removed to be used with a different set of speakers if you prefer.. Ease of Use: I've actually read the manual it explains everything in great detail.. no learning curves.. but you have to know what you're doing to take care of this thing.. if you push the speakers too hard.. POW!! cause the speakers don't have a very good excursion. Quality: it's VERY sturdy.. the amp came in perfect condition with the power cord and everything.. I would NEVER bring a back up for this bad boy.. don't need it.. I've dragged this thing in the bed of my truck with the rest of my band's equipment (pa speakers, monitors, guitar amps, keyboard.. etc) a good 200 miles to a show and back.. did good at the show did good at the next show.. Value: for $750?!? This is a Steal.. although this IS a combo.. don't be fool'd because if you want a different cabinet later on down the road.. BAM! you can just take out the 350 watt amp head and place it with your new cabinet.. They could sell this combo for so much more.. but somebody's gotta give us budget conscious musicians a break right? Manufacturer Support: I have not dealt with the company yet.. but seeing as how good they made their product... pfft.. pffft.. I don't even think they would need customer service.. The chances of this thing messing up are 0% and even if it did it would more then likely be the consumer's fault for not reading the provided manual or from just years and years of wear and tear.. and by years and years I mean i expect this thing to last AT LEAST 10 years hopefully more.. The Wow Factor: This bass amp has AMAZING *ahem* "sex appeal".. I really like the way it looks actually.. the silver ring around the subs.. the subtle blue circle between sub and said silver ring.. the silver tweeter in the middle.. the protective black metal meshy looking cover.. sexy amp right above it.. Overall: I expect to be satisfied for a LONG time.. I'll probably make some additions to this amplifier later on.. IE. effects processor, an additional 15" cab for that extra punch..
