    Comments about Hartke HD50 50-Watt 1x10" Bass Combo Amplifier:

    Put a medium diaphragm condenser in front of it and literally could not believe the clarity and punch that came through in my DAW. This is my first amp with a partially aluminum cone, but if that is what is responsible for the sound, it is a good good thing. The amp is reasonably quiet, but I got just a tiny bit of treble hiss that was tricky to eliminate. Ultimately, this amp can sound good at any volume, or sound really great if you put some boost and a decent EQ in front of it. This is a real hands on product review from Richard@ Sam Ash Miami

      Comments about Hartke HD50 50-Watt 1x10" Bass Combo Amplifier:

      The HD50 is a great new addition to the Hartke lineup. It's compact size makes it easily for transport. At 50 watts of power, it not only works as a practice amp for private practice but also works for smaller venues. When you need to play a smaller venue and don't want to drag your big rig with you, the HD50 will provide quality tone that doesn't break your back. The updated hybrid paper and aluminum cone provides great warmth and punch. This amp comes with all the features you would want in a practice amp. It has an input for headphones for quiet practice, and an auxiliary jack so you can practice along to your favorite songs.

            This amp packs more punch that you'd imagine. As a bassist that performs over 150 gigs a year I need amps of various sizes because I never really know the actual size of some rooms I'm booked in until I arrive. I've used this amp more than I ever thought I would. As an owner of this amp I stand behind this review. That being said...This is a real hands on product review from Big Jim at Sam Ash New Haven.

                Impressive tone quality combined with solid construction in a compact afoorbale amp. Great for small acoustic gigs and use for bass tracks in a home studio. The speaker is strong and handles low bass notes without distorting. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

                  This amp pumps out some serious volume, but also sounds great at low volumes. The 10" speaker has the best of both worlds with a aluminum and paper design, giving metallic highs and soothing lows. it's durable too. I am a sam ash associate at Cincinnati.

                  I was very surprised when I first tried this guy out! This is a great, loud, and clear little practice amp! With the aux in and headphone jack you can play quietly, or with the nice aluminum cone, you can really pump some air! Very loud for the size, but not loud enough to play with more than one other person! I love this little amp though!

                    Bass practice amps that have enough thump are hard to find. Hartke has a killer little amp right here. Whether you are practicing or need something for a small gig, this amp will knock your socks off. All of that Hartke quality in a little 1x10 speaker!

                      This is an ideal amp for those little gigs.... Perfect for venues on the quiet side. However, don't get me wrong about one thing...this little amp packs a lot of volume for its size. It has an AUX input for an ipod or similar device so you can play along with your own music. Great little amp at a price that anyone can afford.

                      You do not need to worry about the sound of your bass .the Hartke sound is fantastic.
                      If you need to practice without shaking the house this is the answer !
                      My bass player is older and cannot carry his rig around because its so heavy this is perfect for our writing session and learning new material !
                      the mp3 input is a life saver ! so we can plug a laptop ,ipod ,iphone!
                      This review was done by Sam Ash store 21 ,by Steve! hope this helps
