The LH1000 Bass Amplifier Head is a light-weight, simplistic, road-worthy powerhouse that will add a variety of incredible tones to your live bass rig.

With 1000 watts and classic 12AX7 Class-A tube preamp, the LH1000 provides bass players with an abundance of power and amazing tone. The LH1000 features Treble and Bass Shelving as well as mid peak controls which will allow you to produce a broad range of tonal colors to the amps natural, warm tone. If your looking to shape your sound even further, the LH1000 also features Brite and Limiter switches.

Today’s amplifiers seem to all be about one thing, control. So much so that they’ve almost become too complicated to use and aren’t quite user friendly. The LH1000 on the other hand doesn’t necessitate an engineering degree to adjust your tone. The simplistic and intuitive front panel of the LH1000 gives you all of the range and dynamics of more complicated amps but without the headache. Although the LH1000 is a perfect complement to the Hartke HyDrive cabinets, it also works as a seamless accompaniment to any bass cab on the market.

Whether your playing small venues or huge stadiums, the power that the LH1000 puts out makes this amplifier head ideal for the gigging musician. The LH1000 features a light-weight, rugged construction as well as two-rackspace, metal frame chassis,  a steel faceplate and handles which make this amp extremely road-worthy.

The LH1000's raw, reliable power is also perfect for additional shaping through your effects console or stomp box. With all the necessary features for complete tonal control, along with ample power and rugged design, the LH1000 will ensure your bass playing receives the positive attention it deserves.

          Comments about Hartke LH1000 Bass Amplifier Head:

          These things are just incredible. They have a very warm, tubey tone (due to the preamp) and they get incredibly loud! We use this line of Hartkes in my band and have nothing but great luck! Sounds great direct into the PA (retains the warmth and tube amp characteristics) and sounds great direct in recording as well.

          The unit takes pedals very well and is a nice simple interface that doesn't overcomplicate getting good tone. So many bass amps seem to want to give you too many options and it's easier to make it sound bad than good - not this guy!

          Despite having some character it is a rather transparent amp and brings out each basses personality. For this price vs volume ability/performance this thing blows the competition out of the water!

                This is a great bass head with plenty of watts to push some 8x10 cabs, which is what you need if you're going to play live. Definitely a professional grade amp.

                    Comments about Hartke LH1000 Bass Amplifier Head:

                    I personally recommend getting this head. It's super powerful at 1000 watts, and easy to use. The controls are simple, yet it offers a vast array of tone colors and settings to give you the sound you're looking for, without lots of complicated EQ adjustments to make. The built in tube preamp enriches your tone even more, and is a wonderful feature to have. This head is powerful enough to push your sound across the largest of venues.

                      If you want an amp that you can really dial in your tone, this is the amp for you. With bass and treble shelving, you have the ability to really design your own signature sound. Oh yeah, and this thing is LOUD!
