Hughes & Kettner BassKick 313
Check here:

type of amplification: transistors simulating lamps ...

DLivre power:
80 Watts (RMS) into 8 ohms / 110 watts (RMS) at 4 Ohms


Very simple configuration
We get a good ultra easy (gain + volume + 3 4 preset eq + tweeter on / off)
no problem spitting knobs,
the problem of the grid that vibrated some frquence has corrected you squeezing a little grille.
a clash of transport, I lost the cover volume knob, but it easily recovers.

a manual for what?


It fits all styles
I play with washburn xb800, but I also played with an old samick and fender Jazzbass. A bassist has played over and ador!
The soundmatrix 2 perfect for a big sound very deep kind Slap Marcus Miller
preset 3 (ballad) perfect to play Jaco (continuum and company)
when placed ssound matrix off, you get a versatile sound that can be reworked with equ.
preset 1 (rock) was a little too sharp, but that's more because I do not like you hear the frets movements ..
What also makes the difference with other amps is the tweeter allows for rich sound in harnonique without grinding in each slide.


I use it for four years to play at home and he made some scenes, pubs etc .. (Funk style)

What I like the most is frankly we very quickly a sound that dchire (slap, rock, ballad, neutral), thanks to the "sound matrix" (forerunners ?? ?), without taking the head and after we can refine the settings simply with 3 pots bass, mid, treble.
It's downright better than full of amps that offer equa and switches has no end.
For sound, it's very simple, I have always been by the other amps !!!
especially on occasions in concert !!! (Well except on major scenes teams .. (c hall and Festiv'Art not to mention .. (St Etienne))
I love the deep bass (sound slap is royal !!!) and the definition of acute thanks to the tweeter. (For Pop)
In concert, for pubs, there is ample and agrees to be pushed well. (Do not abuse it, the other members of the group will be jealous ...)

I tried a lot of amps situation before and after (and yes when you start it has not forcment ITS amp)
All amps I test dlivrent the same power are less well.
Including the series of combo Trace Elliot, which sounds very well in stores but true ... pfff ...
jump may be the Hartke amps.

Price-quality ratio, I remember a rather high price but I bought in the provinces ... so ..

With experience, it is clear, it is out of the question as I dbarasse for now !!!
or else it'll be for a énooorme 500w system .... and again (for the home, it's fun!)
