    Comments about Hartke VX3500 Bass Combo Amplifier:

    So, bought this amp with very high expectations of it being a "decent" rig. Not Great, but "decent". I could not be more wrong. This is the second one that has died on me in ONE YEAR!!! Yes, died. After doing a little research on this, I have found out that Hartke has issues with the soldier welds within the head. This is especially a known issue with this model. Very, Very dissappointed. I am actually taking the second dead one back to Sam Ash today and getting something NOT HARTKE...

    Comments about Hartke VX3500 Bass Combo Amplifier:

    The wheels are bit small. I've moved bigger and heavier amps with less rumbling on rough surfaces. The commpression (when on) seems to have a slight delay that can make a pop noise so I equalize it to not need it on. I had to adjust the high end of the equalizer while the drums where playing in order to hear high notes when playing with the band. With some freinds we compared a 600W Ampeg and this Hartke, and the Hartke was a lot louder. This amp does not lack power if you want to wake up the neighborhood this will work.

    Comments about Hartke VX3500 Bass Combo Amplifier:

    I've had my hartke vx3500 since 2005, and just recently it started making a low, buzzing sound that another reviewer pointed out. I thought it was my input jack or my bass, but that isn't the case, as it turns out. About a year ago, I had to replace some blown speakers. I just wanted something that was a little more portable. Its been more of a problem than it has been a solution. Honestly, though, it's really powerful, and it can be played for for a crowd of about 250-350 people. The first year I owned it, it was awesome. Exactly what I needed. It has a sturdy build, sounded good, and extremely portable. My friend owns one, though, and his is just fine. I don't get it. Maybe mine's a dud?

      Comments about Hartke VX3500 Bass Combo Amplifier:

      With the EQ I could really get that warm treble sound, Slapping and popping sounds great! I thought I was playing a half stack when I notice it had no head! And most of all it's Silent, no Hums or Buzzing!

        This has got to be the best combo for the money!
        I have been playing for almost 6 years and i have never really owned my own bass amp! because i was always been provided with equipment where ever i performed, usually SWR equipment! But swr's tone doesnt even come close to this! i fist perchesd an ampeg, the tone was awsome but lacked power! so i got the hartke vx3500! great tone! POWER, optinons like solid state or tube! the tube sound in this sounds soo warm and fuzzy! really realiable! built like a tank!

        This amp is awesome. It sounds great and makes my bass go boom! I drag this thing up on stage and people can actually hear me and distinguish between what I am playing.
