In Stock!

Portable, punchy bass tones!

Hartke proves that great tone doesn't need to cost a ton with the Hartke HD50 bass combo amp. Pushing 50 watts of power through a single 10" speaker, the HD50 is perfect for bedroom practice sessions or small, intimate gigs. When you're gigging out and about, durability is a must, and the HD50 will easily withstand being lugged from gig to gig. The Hartke HD50 bass combo amp is a great choice when you don't need a ton of power, but you also don't want to sacrifice tone.

The combination of paper and aluminum cone makes for an incredible sonic combo

So what makes the Hartke HD50 bass combo stand apart from other similarly priced amps? It's all revolving around the HyDrive-design speaker. The HyDrive-design speaker uses paper around the outside for traditional warm, round tones. But the middle is aluminum, adding trademark Hartke zing. The result is a portable bass amp that offers the best of both worlds. Sweetwater knows a thing or two about bass, and Hartke's HD50 bass combo is garnering some well-deserved attention around here.

Hartke HD50 Bass Combo Amp Features:
  • Portable and rugged for gigging
  • 10" speaker and 50 watts of power for practice around the house or small gigs
  • HyDrive uses combination of paper and aluminum cone for warmth and punch
  • 1/8" stereo aux input allows for stereo line level devices
  • 14" mono headphone output for silent practice
  • Built-in limiter for controlled volume

Great practice amp

I picked this amp out at Sweetwater in Fort Wayne. Sounded better than Peavey Max 110 with my Ibanez SG500 active bass. After getting it home, my bass playing mentor was over and even he gave it thumbs up. Good deep sound, pretty good loudness-all I'll need for practice. Quiet: when volume on the Ibanez is off and it's off. Still quiet on 1 with the Ibanez dimed. No gripes. All good.

Great Amp

I bought this amp mainly for practice at home or for jamming with friends in a small room. I'm amazed at the tone this little guy has. I'll probably even end up recording with it just to see how it sounds. This really is the perfect practice amp and best bang for your buck.

Great practice amp

Absolutely awesome sound at practice volume. Handles my Ibanez SG500 with no probs of overload in preamp. Even dimed on volume at the instrument. With Bass knob dimed and volume dimed, the port has some "chuffing" air sound at high volume, but the amp is still solid without distortion. Hybrid cone gives great highs when using the bridge pickup and dimed Treble knob and a pick. My fave is the finger picked full bass sound which with my flat wound Fender strings which is a pretty good upright imitation. To gig, get a bigger amp or one with a line output or mike it. Can't be beat as a practice amp.

(almost) Perfect Apartment Amp

Definitely not as loud as I feared a 50 watt amp might be, which is a good thing living in an apartment. It will still get plenty loud with some boost in the signal chain though. Put a medium diaphragm condenser in front of it and literally could not believe the clarity and punch that came through in my DAW. This is my first amp with a partially aluminum cone, but if that is what is responsible for the sound, it is a good good thing. The amp is reasonably quiet, but I got just a tiny bit of treble hiss that was tricky to eliminate. Ultimately, this amp can sound good at any volume, or sound really great if you put some boost and a decent EQ in front of it.
