Hartke

A high powered head that delivers warm tone and pure power, perfect for any application big or small.

The LH Series LH1000 1000 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head has a classic 12AX7 Class-A tube front-end design with a solid-state output. Trick out the Treble and Bass Shelving to give its warm tone a little edge, or use the brite and limiter switches to further sculpt your sound. Its intuitive front panel design also makes adjustments on the fly a breeze. Although the LH1000 is a perfect complement to the Hartke HyDrive cabinets, it also works as a seamless accompaniment to any bass cab on the market.

Obviously a head with this kind of power is perfect for gigging musicians in any number of live applications, which is why Hartke made sure the LH1000 is as durable as it is versatile and powerful. With a two-rackspace, metal frame chassis, steel faceplate and handles, this amp is made for the road. The LH1000's raw, reliable power is also perfect for additional shaping through your effects console or stomp box.

With all the necessary features for complete tonal control, along with ample power and rugged design, the LH1000 will ensure your bass playing receives the positive attention it deserves.

    Comments about Hartke LH Series LH1000 1000 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

    As a metal bass kind of guy, I was looking for a head that would fit all my needs (performance, recording, and general jamming), and let me tell you, I found it when I first heard this baby being used on stage by another local musician. I knew right then and there, I had to have one. I took the plunge and ordered, and was not disappointed. It is hands down the most simple yet fully functional piece of bass equipment I own.

    The tones you can get out of it are diverse, the amount of power is incredible, the controls are easy to use and understand, and the beauty achieved in its simplicity is stunning.

    This IS the head you've been looking for. Hartke is amazing, and I thank them for putting out this fantastic product.

    Comments about Hartke LH Series LH1000 1000 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

    I'm 45; been playing 20+ years. Note that this amp has a fender-style tone stack: learning the EQ is a process, but it's fun and rewarding.

    The ability to blend the A and B speaker outputs makes for great flexibility, allowing you to use non-identical cabinets and adjust them to taste, and/or to add cabinets as your needs change. (It's generally understood that more cabs is the path to more sound, not more amp - so consider also the LH500 if you dont need this much of a beast.)

    And oh yeah: did I mention? It'll massage your internal organs and vibrate the neighbors' beds a few houses away if you don't exercise restraint.


    Oh, the endless joys of fat clean bottom end. I don't deserve this wonderful gear, but you do!

    I bought a nice little road case to lug it around in, and am glad I did.

      Comments about Hartke LH Series LH1000 1000 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

      This thing is a keeper. I've tried a lot of different setups, amps, cabs, combos. Playing with 3 guitars is difficult to be heard sometimes. When I first bought this amp it worked great. I have it running bridged out through (1) Hartke 4x10 cab and daisey chained to (1) Ampeg 4x10 cab but, some screws worked themselves out of the amp. I called up Musician's Friend and they were more then happy to help me out and send another amp in exchange. I actually had to play 2 more gigs with it before I sent it back. If you are looking for an all around great sounding amp with plenty of volume and power at a very reasonable price, this is it! And if you need more of a recommendation, listen to Dave from Megadeth or Frank from Anthrax.

        Comments about Hartke LH Series LH1000 1000 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

        I purchased this amp almost 3 years ago in my local music store, with two Hartke cabs (4x10 and 1x15). i was in a band at the time and we were playing some pretty big gigs, which is why i needed so much power. needless to say, i had more than enough. this head is amazing. i don't need a lot of features and presets, so this head is perfect for me. the tone, the tube and valves, the power, the direct XLR output, everything about it. no its not an ultra-light, but its worth every pound!! for its class and price bracket, i'm not sure you'll find a better sounding amp.

              Hartke LH 1000, very simple, great sound, very agressive. I use it toplay live on gigs and can handle a big place (100' x 100'). I combine it with a Goliath 6x10 1,200 watts and its very impressive how this head just at volume 4 its just so very loud. I think its a very good investment. It worth any single penny it cost. This an excelent equipment.

                Comments about Hartke LH Series LH1000 1000 Watt Hybrid Bass Amp Head:

                This is my first Hartke product to use and so far I am quite impressed. Right now I am using it in bridged mode, 750 watts with an 8ohm cabinet which is a GK 410 that's rated at 800w RMS. The sound is smooth, warm, thick and round, especially with the Hartke TUBE preamp. Since I favor this type of tone, I am very pleased.

                This amp is NOT an ultra-light at 33 lbs. And I put it into a Gator rack which adds another 10 lbs. So, the racked head weighs about the same as my GK 410 cab, but is still manageable.

                I have used this amp for about half a year now and never any problems, I originally owned a Peavey Tour 700 and this amp blows it out of the water. Seriously you will not be disappointed. The features on it are limited but the sound that comes out of it makes up for lack of features. If any additional sounds are needed, just buy a pedal. I use this with the 4x10 hydrive cab and it sounds phenomenal.
