Hartke HyDrive 210C
It's a transistor amp with a 250w head and two speakers 150w each 10pouces cardboard and aluminum.
There is only one instrument input that your bass is active or passive.
Side connector is behind everything. There is a "footswitch" to be able to order a Hartke pedal sold separately.
An XLR direct output is very convenient when the return on a mixer.
An entry for adding effects and an output for use effects of the amplifier.
An entry for RC cable (left and right) that can be used to listen to music through the loudspeakers (for example)
It has a compressor, a "frequency controller," an overdrive, a 7-band equalizer settings and two bass / treble.
Opportunity to turn a return handy.


Once we turn it on we have a good sound. But if we want to find "HER" sound must tweak a bit longer especially what I call the "frequency controller" who actually "aggravate" your sound and makes it more acute.
Overdrive side, it is not surprising but is of average quality which is good for Overdrive originally fitted.
Regarding the 7-band equalizer, it is simple to use but pushed a little too much, the sound loses its quality. It is better to use both knobs "bass" and "treble" that are effective.
For the compressor nothing wrong. It gives a well and slamming his job very well done ^ ^
No problem of fan noise.
A regrettable however that the document is in English (online manual and reverso)


I play funk jazz pop / rock with an Ibanez SR-300 and with a Jazz bass Mexica.
The sound is very faithful to that of the bass (sometimes too since it reproduces very well the small snag due to freight and other pests).

We can get the sound you want because with this famous' controller frequency "we can have a sound very fat and round, turning to the right handed than left the sound is sharper and thus" crystalline " .

You should know that the sound has little to warm in contrast with the mixture of cardboard and aluminum, the sound can be very flashy as round and soft.


I use it for 1year bientôt.Je have not tried many models before this one (ashdown 180w 300w and H & K) and it seemed a good compromise between the Round (ashdown, ampeg) and cold and clear (Hughes & K, Hartke other)
Like his punch and it is very appropriate to slap.
Its position as a floor and also welcome when playing not far from it. This helps to hear the desired sound.
The compressor and frequency controller are good and useful.
The sound cones provide cardboard / aluminum is fine

However, the equalizer 7BAND degrades the sound quality too and it is even when the amp is pushed to more than 8 / 10 (which is normal for an amp do not worry)

Good value for money
With the experience I do not think I would do this choice, preferring to turn to higher-end amp (SWR for example) are certainly more expensive but the reproduction of bass sound is superior. = D
