Flexible enough to be played upright or "kicked back" as a monitor, the Hartke Kickback 15 quickly became one of the most imitated (but not duplicated) designs in bass

Like all “Kicks,” the Kickback 15 stands up or kicks back for increased high-end clarity and directionality. The Kickback 15 pushes 120 watts into 8 ohms through a custom 15XL Hartke aluminum-cone driver for an incredibly deep low end. The unique “Shape” contour filtering and 3-band EQ of the Kickback 15 facilitates precise tonal shaping. The Kickback 15 features all that plus a balanced XLR output and a headphone output that mutes the speaker for quiet rehearsing all packed into a road-worthy cabinet with reinforced corners and metal grille.

The Kickback 15 is the perfect practice amp for both beginners just starting out and even professionals who are looking to practice before the big performance.

      Comments about Hartke Kickback 15 Bass Combo Amplifier:

      I have owned this amp for over 6+ years and never had a problem with it! I've gig with it and it holds up well, we are not a loud band, and if
      outdoors I use the direct out to the PA for a little more coverage, I would like to see a newer version at 200 Watts,
      But this amp puts out some Low End, and clean mids and highs, I like the fact there is not a bunch of useless buttons and EQ to confuse the heck out of you, Simple and effective controls

      I Like it! and would recomend it to anyone looking for a small combo

      Comments about Hartke Kickback 15 Bass Combo Amplifier:

      I needed a very portable bass amp with some guts, so I got the Kickback 15 about a decade ago. Never had a single problem, other than the goofy little rubber feet came off. Goes in and out of the vehicle easily, uses standard removable power cord, so you don't have to dink with a hanging cord. Sound is very solid, crips highs and the Shape dial I use alot to dial in fatness to my exact spec. Plenty of low end, but won't keep up with a guitarist with really loud stage volume, say marshall with a 4x10. Other than that, this thing has been a workhorse, inside or outside.

        Comments about Hartke Kickback 15 Bass Combo Amplifier:

        The amp is built well and is quite light in weight. Only complaint is that it does not have a lot of power for use outside of a practice amp. At lower levels (< 5), it sounds great. Pushing it above 5 results in distortion - which makes this amp a great practice amp - not a stage amp when playing with a drums, guitar, keys, etc...

        Kick Back 15's A Winner!

        Comments about Hartke Kickback 15 Bass Combo Amplifier:

        "I am Totally Please with this Amp, The 15 inch Aluminum cone KICK""S out some serious Low's while mantaining it's clarity and brite punchy tones. the 3 band EQ &Shape control gives you all you need and nothing you don't! Good Solid Cabinet, with a road worthy covering, And a bit Smaller than other 1-15"" combo's I would like to see brighter markings on the dials so you can see where you're are at in low light situations, But all in all I am so glad I went for the Hartke Amp instead of the BassMan 100, In this Price Range you can't go wrong"
