From Our Research Team:
Attack Your Bass Sound!The Hartke Bass Attack Pedal is a tone-shaping pre-amp that doubles as a direct box, featuring the famous Hartke Shape Circuitry. The Hartke two-button style stomp box has a three band EQ for adjustments of Bass, Treble, and Bright controls, plus a Harmonic control that emulates the warmth and drive of a tube so well that you'll never want to turn it off. The Hartke Bass Attack Pedal gives you the ability to finally get the sound you want, and everything in between!
Another Use for the Parallel Output
In a recording application, you can use the Bass Attack's Parallel Output as a second input! So, to create an effects loop, simply send a signal to your FX processor from the Line Output, then back through the Bass Attack by using the Parallel Output as an effects input. This will allow you to add an additional effect like a digital multi-effects processor for delay, chorus, and reverb AND have them mixed in with the Bass Attack preamp for a killer front end!

by fromVery high quality pedal. Great preamp. It works very well for live shows as it has an xlr out, 1/4 inch out, and a parallel output.

The shape knob/switch combo is very effective for live shows where a quick drastic tone change is needed. The harmonics overdrive sounds like a classic overdriven Ampeg and the other knobs really let you shape your tone to your preferences. Very good pedal for 99 bucks and sounds great with bass and guitar. close [-]

Good, clean sound
by Matt from Wisconsin, USAI'm really happy with my Bass Attack pedal. It really gives you a wide range of sounds. Just had to look at the manual to find out how the switches work.

I also really like the 3 options for power - 9v battery, 9v AC adaptor(not included), or phantom power from a mixer. When using a 9v battery, I always try to unplug my bass input as this cuts out the pedal and seems to make the battery last longer. close [-]

I initially got the Bass Attack to use as my front end on my live rig because it gives me all the tone control I need to get that punch I like. Now I find myself using it for direct recording. I can dial in the right sound very quickly and get a clean, hot signal through the XLR output. It can be powered via phantom through the XLR out as well. One other nice touch is the parallel 1/4" output that is perfect to keep your tuner hooked up without actually going through it. This thing is built like a tank too; itís solid and the knobs are smooth.
