The Kilo Bass Amplifier Head offers you that classic Hartke tone, ample amounts of power and enhanced flexibility all in a rigid, road-worthy package.

Hartke raises the bar for bass amplification with the Kilo Bass Amplifier Head. The Kilo delivers the classic tone of Hartke bass amps as well as complete tonal control and ground shaking power, all combined with the latest concepts in bass amplification design. Because of the incredible power the Kilo puts out along with all the control you have over your tone, this amp is the ideal choice for all applications-from the recording studio, to small venues all the way to the biggest stadiums.

Delivering a massive 1,000 watts (at 4 ohms) of pure Hartke power in the bridged mono mode and 500 watts (at 2 ohms) of  power per side in stereo mode, the Kilo is sure to shake the ground under your feet. The all tube class-A preamp, logically arranged tone controls and the classic 3-band tone stack EQ with variable Shape control featured on the Kilo allow you to shape your tone up to your own specifications. Sculpt your tone even further with the Kilo's on board 10-band EQ with independent level control as well as selectable Deep and Bright EQ curves.  The Kilo allows you to add a little “dirt” to your tone with the built-in variable tube Overdrive circuit, and to round out the dynamics, there is a fast and articulate Compressor circuit.

The Kilo offers both Speakon as well as 1/4-inch output jacks for easy connection to your speaker cabinet. The Kilo provides you with an abundance of connections and signal routing features, including multi-point direct output switch, stereo Effects Loop, front and rear panel tuner outputs and footswitch jacks to control the on board Mute, Overdrive, EFX and EQ functions.

The Kilo was designed with the professional, gigging musician in mind. An enduring design that features three-rackspace chassis, oversized handles for easy transportation and a solid die cast face plate that gives any bassist the assurance that this amp has the capability of withstanding the abuse typically brought on by constant gigging. Thanks to its power, resiliency and tonal versatility, the Hartke Kilo emerges as a trendsetter on the bass amplification market.

The Kilo Bass Amplifier is a robust bass head with full-range power and control that will shake the foundation for discriminating players in every style.

    Comments about Hartke Kilo 1000 Premiere Bass Amplifier Head:

    First I want to start off by thanking Samash for the great service and working with me to get a deal to fit with what I was looking for! Finally a music store that actually works with musicians! Also thanks for carrying Hartke, this amp was hard to come by!

    And now to the amp... It is impossible to get a bad sound out of this quality amp. If you stand in front of it and close your eyes and turn knobs randomly and plug it, it is going to sound great! This is the most versatile amp I have ever used. If you are a person that likes unlimited tweaking ability than this is the amp for you. I am blown away by everything this amp offers in one package. It is so easy to get the sound you are looking for and it sounds so powerful and clean! Before getting this amp I had a full rack and pedalboard, now that I have this I don't need to use any of my pedals or rack gear at all which was unbelievable to me. Sound is top notch with punchy lows and the 10 band EQ allows you to dial in anything you are looking for. Just go try one for yourself, you won't regret it! Now I am a lifelong Hartke and Samash supporter!
