Hartke Now Shipping the HD500 Bass Combo Amp

Hartke HD500 Bass Combo AmpIntroduced earlier this year, Hartke’s new HD500 Bass Combo is now shipping. The 35-pound combo is loaded with a pair of their HyDrive 10-inch drivers for 500 watts of power.

“The HD500 features Hartke’s patented HyDrive speakers that transformed speaker technology by blending paper and aluminum materials into a speaker cone that produces an exceptional blend of warmth and attack that can’t be attained by traditional all-paper cones,” the company explains. “The use of rare earth neodymium magnets helps to maintain lightweight portability without sacrificing any of the legendary Hartke attack.”

Its preamp section features a 3-band EQ plus a Shape knob that dials in a preset EQ curve. The HD500 has an XLR direct output as well as a 1/8-inch auxiliary input and a 1/4-inch headphone output. It is shipping now for $599.99.
