MGR/Billy's review"Hartke HA2500"

Hartke HA2500
This bad boy is 250 watts at 4 ohms and about 180 at 8 ohms. The preamp gives you solid state and tube gain (this never made sense to me in a tube amp, but hey, the amps sounds good, why question it right?)

Next you have a compressor. Not bad on 1 or 2, but quickly goes overboard after that. After that is your generous 10-band EQ section, followed by a hi and low pass and finally your master volume.

On the back you have 2 outs, an effects loop and a DI.

That's A TON of features for a $250 amp!

I bought this amp because of the price and because I was sick of lugging around my big amp if all I was doing was practicing alone or with a quieter setup of musicians.

I paid $225 for this amp. I was surprised they included rack ears as well in the box. This amp has everything you need.

Postives features are all of the features. Pre/Post volume, a compressor, an EQ, a DI, rackmountable. This amp has all the features of a more expensive amp with less power and a friendy price tag.

None at all. Once you play it for awhile and it warms up the fan will go on. It is not loud in a live setting, but if you are recording I was mic your cab in another room or a couple feet from the head.

I have only had it for a few weeks, but it feels sturdy and well it works as it should.

Don't overlook this amp. It is a great price, buy it for practice, buy it as a backup. This is a great amp to have laying around.

This is a rackmount amp transistor.
The conventional connectors (entered active and passive, 2 hp outputs, line out to the XLR)

On paper the 250 watt amp do.
Indeed there is a single compressor.
Adjustments are made by a graphic equalizer 9 band (I think it will)


Wiring easy, quickly found doing the right sound for the manual I do not remember him so handling is easy.


So it is not at all typical metal must say. Overdrive can be useful to ca.

on the other hand for a big jazzy is not to say he pauses.

Well rounded. Acute and deep bass beauty.

I use it with my Ibanez BTB 676 and from time to time with my Ashdown overdrive.

I do not hate anything, I just regret the absence of a gain knob.


It must be 3 or 4 years that I have. No problem with it. It is robust as gear.
I really wanted to test Hartke and admittedly my budget was limited so I did not not tested many other amp.
I especially like its well-rounded sound, which goes very well with my bartollini MK2.
This is an excellent value for money ;)

It is sure that I do the same choice. Although now a small tube amp home Ampeg make me very happy; or why not add an Ampeg amp in small Hartke. Stay tuned B)

Hartke HA2500
Amp transistor
Everything jack


We can get any sound that Tete Hartke, heavy or crystalline !!
English manual but easy to understand


Suitable everything music style
Is not "typed"

Rather the use of a heavy sound for the new Metallica album ^^


I use a Warwick Streamer $$ - 5 strings and I fully find my account !!!
If I have to make another choice, I would do the same without hesitation: For the price, especially for the quality sonote ^^

Hartke HA2500
For all the technical details (settings, connections etc. ..) I can not speak as a guitarist of the band, I do not know thoroughly this bebette; on the other hand, I know that my bass player has tested a lot of stuff (Eden Nemesis 4x10 Combo, Trace elliott ..) well, there cete head attached to a Vx 400 of the same brand (+ a 15 'if outside) with a active low is MONSTROUS power and précision- rarely exceed mid volume ...- race if he wants to clear the slamming slap, kick-2 and c équalo set when one wants to move to the + his round, same thing and it does it too ... and robust with that, she took a lot of (big) shocks in the van, nothing has changed ... he paid 450 euros it occas head 4X + 10 ... who says better ... thank you !!! Hartke




A to fade quite a scratch ...


Unbeatable value for money

Hartke HA2500
A transistor amplifier
All jack
9band graphic eq, compressor, low-high, master


If we know how to use a no prob Eq found the sound they want quickly. No need to use the manul but otherwise it is in English but easy to understand.


The range of sounds is impressive for an amp at this price, it's going to sound super super heavy round crystal at its very great for slap. I play an Ibanez GSR200 and the sound is very good. I'm not playing that finger (slap, walking, ..) The baffle is a Hartke Vx115


I use it for 1 month and I am very glad I remake that choice without prob (especially with the budget I) This amp is great for its price, it's not on the ampeg but for small purses gnial it!
