Hartke amps aren't for everyone, but they're solid amps and good for the money.

Sounds to me like an excuse.

I was tempted by one of these a while back, but I think their cabs with alumiun cones are far better than the paper ones

I highly recommend Hartke. I brought a second hand Hartke (it had been gigged a lot for a couple ofyears) and it works perfectly, extreamly solid.

What exactly do you mean by this?


Not everybody likes their tone. Same with any amp.

Yeah, I'm torn between either:

1.The Hartke VX 3500 combo amp
OR
2.The Hartke 3500 Amp head AND Hartke XL410 box


On a side note:
is the Hartke bass attack pedal (I'm sort of a Hartke freak) any good?

I love it, personally. I played with one for a little bit a while ago, and it's on my "must-get" list.

I agree

I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.

Go with the head/cab setup. You can always get a nicer cab if you don't like the sound, or a different head if you want more/less power. Much, much more versatile.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

But if I buy the VX3500 combo, I can still connect the amp head to another speaker, right?
