Hartke Introduces Two New Bass Heads
By Guest |
Redefining the scope of modern bass amplification, the new Hartke HA4000 and HA3000 amps offer unprecedented sound-shaping and a wide range of inter-facing options.
The HA4000 produces 400 watts into 4 ohms and 220 watts into 8 ohms. A special Shape circuit with a variable intensity control lets bassists voice their instruments in different ways and create a range of new tone colors. The amp also includes a comprehensive 4-band EQ section with two fully parametric mids for absolutely precise tone control. A D-Bass EQ control provides additional deep bass tones.
In terms of interfacing flexibility, the HA4000 features a special DI output that converts a buffered version of the guitar input signal to a balanced, low impedance format for driving any cable length, PA or slave bass system. A balanced Preamp output lets you drive another bass system while retaining all of the original tone settings. A Sub Bass output provides a preamp signal suitable for driving a combination subwoofer/amplifier system. Other features include a special Mute switch for all outputs except the tuner output to allow instant tuning on stage; Pre and Post-EQ effects loops and more.
The HA3000 Amplifier produces 300 watts into 4 ohms and 180 watts into 8 ohms. It also includes a special Shape circuit with variable intensity control and a 4-band fixed EQ for tone shaping. It also features the same DI output, special Mute switch for tuning and Pre and Post-EQ effects loops found on the HA4000.
Suggested retail price for the HA4000 is $699 and the HA3000 is $569.
