Hartke TX600 Bass Amplifier Head (600 Watts)

This unassuming, compact enclosure pumps out 600W of power. A unique tone stack EQ offers a bass-tailored, preset equalization curve with four controls.
Hartke's lightweight TX600 is a 600-watt Class D bass amplifier that offers the legendary Hartke tube preamp circuitry in a highly portable design. Within a rugged, yet compact enclosure, the TX600 features an onboard compressor and unique tone stack EQ section that provides players of all styles with thorough control over their sound.

Tone Stack

Inspired by the countless hours spent by Hartke engineers listening to bass players of all genres, the TX600's tone stack EQ is a preset equalization curve tailored to bass guitar. The Shape and Frequency knobs provide detailed control of the midrange frequency voicing, while the Bass and Treble controls allow for further adjustments to create a tone that is your own.

Tube Preamp

Featuring the same Class A tube preamp circuitry as Hartke's renowned LH Series linear amplifiers, the TX600 produces a wide range of tone with incredible warmth and punch. The amp's Compressor knob provides control over the bass dynamics to establish a smooth, even sound, while a Brite button adds extra high frequency attack.


Featuring an aluminum chassis and weighing only seven pounds, the TX600 is both rugged and portable. Its custom Class D amplifier provides the tonal characteristics of traditional linear amps, minus the backbreaking weight. With a headphone output and 1/8" (3.5mm) input for playing along to your favorite tracks, the TX600 is ideal for practice/rehearsal settings. An XLR direct output also optimizes the amp for read more direct recording or larger performance spaces.

"Awesome Amp"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Absolutely love this amp, super light with the carry handle in the right place. I run it with 2 Eden Ex112's and get the best tone I've ever had! It can be smooth as butter or gritty and shake the house. Some say the fan is loud.......mine isn't, some say it's not true 600 watts........but sure seems like it to me! This amp along with the 2 Eden ex112's is the best setup and sound I've ever had. And all 3 together weigh only 67lbs. Would definitely buy all 3 again!
