Hartke LX5500 Bass Amp Head

The LX5500 is a compact 500-watt amplifier that weighs just eight pounds and responds dynamically to any playing style. The Class A 12AX7 tube-powered preamp allows you to dial in an unlimited number of bass tones, while the lightweight Class D amp delivers 500 watts of true continuous power-enough to make any cab sing.

Capture the character of your bass guitar as soon as you plug it in with the Hartke Tone Stack EQ, designed specifically for rich bass tone. The preamp includes the familiar bass and treble controls, plus a Frequency and Shape knob for extensive midrange control. The Brite button can be engaged to boost high frequencies, bringing out the top end of the bass and highlighting natural harmonic overtones for a distinct, vibrant sound.

The LX5500 features two essential onboard effects designed to enhance your playing and add additional options to your sonic arsenal. An integrated Drive control gives you the option of mixing in a comfortable amount of grit or maxing it out for a healthy dose of fuzzy goodness. Dial in just the right amount of compression to add punch and presence to your attack, or smooth out transients for players who use slapping, tapping, and thumb picking techniques.
