OVERVIEW

A bass head with the features you need for complete tonal control, ample power and rugged design.

Found on stages all over the world, the HA Series HA3500C 350 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head is back in classic black. Yet, it retains all the same rock-solid performance and features as the original that have made it one of the most popular bass amplifiers of all time.

The 3500C's unique circuitry ensures that every nuance of your bass performance is faithfully reproduced. Featuring two Pre-Amp input knobs, allowing custom blending of tube and solid-state tone, and ten-band graphic EQ, the 3500C is ideal for the player who wants plenty of power and control. A dedicated preset button allows you to set an equalization curve and two fully adjustable contour knobs provide even more shaping of your distinctive sound. A built-in compressor adds real "punch" to your bass sound, and also allows you to smooth out volume differences between notes.

Rugged construction and professional features make the 3500C totally road-worthy. Two independent inputs accommodate both passive and active bass guitars. LEDs that show you the settings of the graphic equalizer in low-light environments as well as a two-color LED that continuously shows the status of the compression circuitry in response to your playing. Electronically balanced direct output provides routing signal to professional mixing consoles for both live performance and recording environments. A ground lift switch helps prevent hum or buzz from entering the signal, and a pre/post switch allows the direct signal to be derived either before or after the amp EQ section.

With all the features you need for complete tonal control, along with ample power and rugged design,

      Comments about Hartke HA Series HA3500C 350 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

      The Hartke hybrid bass heads (HA3500 and HA5500)have identical features, and are versatile and powerful, with 350 and 500 watts at 4ohm, respectively. The tube preamp give you just the right mix of buttery, "wet" bass tone (think Ampeg, Eden, or Aguilar on a budget). The only downside is the weight and the tendency for the on-off switch to short out. I've seen this latter problem on three separate heads in this series. A fairly easy fix for an amp tech, but something that Hartke needs to address. Overall, a great value in a pro-quality head.

      Comments about Hartke HA Series HA3500C 350 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

      This is probably the best amp head out there for bass players on a budget. Hartke really knows how to pack a lot of quality features into a durable housing without going overboard. The 10-band graphic eq is so easy to use and really lets you craft your sound. Combine that with the contour controls and the compressor and you have a super wide range of tonal options. The two parallel pre-amps also provide versitility. Even them out for a solid clean tone or crank the tube for some vintage growl. The tube is really sensitive to picking dynamics and easy to push. The only problems I have are with the construction. The first time I used it the master volume knob broke off, but Hartke sent me a new one free of charge and no questions asked. I wish it came with rack ears because if I were to ever tour with it, I would like to protect it some how. But all in all, a great amp for any level of player (Billy Sheehan uses two of these in his live rig) and any style of music.

        Comments about Hartke HA Series HA3500C 350 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

        I'm writing this review because I feel i owe Hartke a solid shout for a product that has served me well for the last 8 years. The amp is clean, has effective eq,gave me no problems and pushed every cab I used well, namely Hartke 2x10 cabs (1 or 2) and/or an Eden 15. I've since moved up to a Mark Bass 450, but the Hartke is a very reliable back up I have confidence in. This amp is honestly under priced. A very good buy.
