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)
