OVERVIEW

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

Found on stages all over the world, the Hartke HA Series HA5500C 500 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 5500C's unique circuitry ensures that every nuance of your bass performance is faithfully reproduced. Featuring two pre-amp input knobs for custom blending of tube and solid-state tone and a ten-band graphic EQ, the 5500C is ideal for the player who wants plenty of power and control. But we don't stop there. 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 5500C totally road-worthy. Two independent inputs accommodate both passive and active bass guitars. LEDs 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.

FEATURES
  • 500 Watts of power at 4 ohms
  • Tube and solid state preamp sections
  • Passive and active input sections
  • Bass, treble, and contour controls
  • 10-band graphic EQ
  • Variable compression
  • XLR direct out
  • Effects loop

Complete bass euphoria no matter what kind of music you play. Get yours today!

Comments about Hartke HA Series HA5500C 500 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

As my amp deteriorates over time with noisy pods, noisy fan, popping noise after its on for 5 seconds, I turned to Hartke for support. My amp is only 5.5 months old. They ignored me completely which I assume means they could care less. I am getting so tired of hearing these noises and pops I am beginning to hate this amp with a passion. It's almost useless to me now and I would never consider a Hartke product ever again!

      Comments about Hartke HA Series HA5500C 500 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

      Using this with 2 4x10 Hartke cabs since early 2003. Very reliable, with lots of headroom and good sound quality/shaping tools. I have used this head heavily over the years, and it's reliability and durability are second to none. Loyal Hartke user for life.

        Comments about Hartke HA Series HA5500C 500 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

        the 5500 is a strong bass head, though i do not think it has more power compaired to the older 3500 modle , i feel the power is about the same as the old school 3500.
