: Forget Hartke. I know they look appealing with thier "great" features and small price tag. They're nothing but trouble. I had the Hartke 5000 for about 2 years. In which time I had it in the shop twice. The first time they replaced the whole unit. You're gonna laugh at me when you read this, but look into Peavey. I have the I have the t max preamp, CS800S power amp, and the older 4-10 cab. It sounds great. when we're headlining I offer the Peavey up to the opening bassplayer for quick changeover. They usually frown until they actually plug in. The moral of the story is, try some Peavey stuff.
Can't agree here. I have had my Hartke gear, (3500 head, 4-10's, 2-10's, & 1-15) for 6 months now. I know this doesn't sound like a long time, but we play for a living, (5-6) nights a week. Moving from place to place week to week. Nothing but raves with my Hartke stuff. I'm not laughing about Peavey. I like their gear. I still have a century head, and a two 15 bottom at home, (that I haven't seen in months), and I play 2 Peavey Dyna-basses, (1 4-string, 1-5). I love both axes. Play them every night. Just now, thru Hartke stuff.
