Found on stages all over the world, the Hartke 5500C bass amplifier is back in classic black. Yet, it retains all the same rock-solid performance and features as the original that have made it one of the most popular bass amplifiers of all time.
The 5500C’s unique circuitry ensures that every nuance of your bass performance is faithfully reproduced. Featuring two pre-amp input knobs for custom blending of tube and solid state tone and ten-band graphic EQ, the 5500C is ideal for the player who wants plenty of power and control.
But Harkte doesn't stop there. A dedicated preset button allows you to set a equalization curve and two fully adjustable contour knobs provide even more shaping of your distinctive sound. A built-in compressor adds real “punch” to your bass sound, and also allows you to smooth out volume differences between notes.
Rugged construction and professional features make the 3500C totally road-worthy. Two independent inputs accommodate both passive and active bass guitars. LEDs show you the settings of the graphic equalizer in low-light environments as well as a two-color LED that continuously shows the status of the compression circuitry in response to your playing.
Electronically balanced direct output provides routing signal to professional mixing consoles for both live performance and recording environments. A ground lift switch helps prevent hum or buzz from entering the signal, and a pre/post switch allows the direct signal to be derived either before or after the amp EQ section.
With all the features you need for complete tonal control, along with ample power and rugged design, the 5500C will ensure complete bass euphoria no matter what kind of music you play.

I like the ability to switch between a warm and clear sound by blending the preamps.
It is a really solid amp that is well built and I have no doubt that we will be together for a very long time (Posted on 6/21/2012)
