Hartke HA5500 Bass Amplifier Head Reviews



Fantastic head, sounds great, brilliant range of functions, so much punch and tone, the high end clarity, even out of my 2x15 cab, is superb.

This is a fantastic head *WHEN IT WORKS*

I had a HA3500 that kept shaking itself apart, kept getting repaired, and just kept shaking itself apart again. I was furious, until Hartke said sorry by replacing it with this beast.

The extra power has meant I've never turned the volume above 7, because any louder and most venues then start to loose the plaster from their ceilings.

The one problem I had was that the cooling fans in the back of the amp burned themselves out after only about 2 months of use. This didn't affect the sound quality but, if gone unnoticed, the amp would've overheated and probably died.

I have since had the fans replaced with the biggest, best fans that would fit and I have had nothing but pure gut-wrenching, ground shaking performance from this amp.

WHen you buy this amp, take the time to get a trusted amp-repairer to check the fans out. It may cost you a drink or two now, but if s/he thinks the fans are naff, GET 'EM CHANGED and you'll have a head that'll last until long after your fingers are worn down to bloody stumps.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
