This is the big brother to the Hartke LH500, an amp I reviewed earlier, but have since upgraded. This amp is like having 2 500 watt amps in one. In bridged mono this beast puts out 750 watts into 8ohm and 1100 into 4 ohms. If you need more power than that, you will probably go deaf!

My local music shop had one that did not sell and they marked this $500 amp down to $299. I put it on hold and did everything shy of sell a lung to get it!

It is super simple to use. Volume, Bass, Mid, Treble and then a blend knob if you are using 2 or more cabs. There is also a built in brite and limiter button. The functions are subtle, yet effective.

The EQ section is take from the vintage Fenders. It is sometimes called a 'tone stack' This means to get it flat your EQ needs to be set around 2 for treble and bass with your mids almost cranked.

In a perfect world this amp would have a 2nd midrange knob to really dial the mids in, but hey they went for a simple design and they delivered!

Built like a tank! I gigged with my LH500 for a year strong with no hold ups besides needing to replace the 12AX7. You may prefer nicer 12AX7 anyway.

Great tone and enough power for any situation. Can't beat the price. There aren't many powerhouse 1000 watt bass amps out there for sub $500.
