Pro Powerhouse !

Great tone, easy to use, and all the power you'll need. The guitar players in my band used to bury me, now I set the level AND the pace. If you're disappointed with this amp then you're doing it wrong. Love it!

Great Amp!!!!!

Best amp I have ever had. The tone is great. Very easy to dial in the exact sound you are looking for. I upgraded to this amp from a 750 watt line 6 amp head. The first time I plugged in to this amp I could feel and hear a HUGE difference. The Hartke LH1000 is the best purchase that I have made in a long time. Extremely satisfied with it.
Music background: bass player for 23 years. christian rock, praise and worship

get it

i am a fairly simple bass player....now. i used to be obsessed with different effects and lots of knobs but because i got this head i ve changed my ways of thinking. a flat eq does it on this thing and you hear the bass tone no unwanted color its just your bass the way it was meant to be heard. its amazing to only have to show up to a gig now and plug in a single cable with no tone altering effects to mess up the tone. at first i wasn't sure but it took no time at all for me to know why vic uses this as well as bello, ellefson and others. get this and the hx810 and you will hear bass tone as it was meant to be heard.

Hartke LH1000 WOW!

I've been out of music for almost 20 years now, but want to rekindle my passion for it. Previously, I had a couple of Fender Bass Amps and more recently a Peavy 1810 cabinet with a Mark V head. I loved that setup. But the Hartke cabinet along with the Hartke LH-1000 Amp head is by far the best rig I've ever owned. Its powerful with really bright sounds!

The sound is UNREAL!!

Little did i know when i plugged it in i was going to be Blown away!Ive been useing GK amps for a long time,so i figured it would just be another amp...Boy was i wrong..Easy to use..i get the sound im looking for and its loud!

Sweetwater Advice

Jared Kalish

Simple, easy to use with great tone. These are the features that I seached for when looking for my next bass head. The Hartke LH1000 delivered on all these points, giving me unbeliveable power and superior bass tone with a super-simple EQ section. I love the 12AX7 Tube preamp - it adds such warmth to an already great-sounding head.
