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.
