: I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the hartke 3500 and 4000 heads for double bass. I'm looking into buying one, but I've heard several really good reviews and several really bad ones. The only other decent bass heads that are in my price range are The Gk 400rb and 700rb, if you have any einfo about these pleas include it as well. Are there any other reasonably priced bass heads that sound good for double bass?
: Also, I've heard good things about the hartke kickback combo amps, and I was thinking about getting the one with the 15 inch speaker for smaller gigs. But I've heard that 15's sound like crap for double bass, is this true? If so would there be a drastic difference in volume between the 10" kickback and the 15" kickback.
: any input is greatly appreciated
I have a hartke 3500 head which I use for double bass. It has plenty of power, and the seperate tube/solid state controls together with the EQ help in getting a good acoustic sound. I must say at higher volumes, though, it loses some of the natural sound - sounding more and more electric as volume increases. If you are interested in this head, I'm selling mine (looking for a smaller combo instead).
