Retaining the classic enclosure, the Kickback KB12 now features Hartke's patented HyDrive Speaker Technology. With 500 watts of Class D power, this  combo is ruggedly portable and delivers serious bass tone that cuts through the mix.

The Hartke KB12 HyDrive 12" speaker features a carefully crafted paper/aluminum hybrid cone driver. The hybrid makeup delivers an exceptional blend of warmth and attack that can't be attained by traditional all-paper bass speakers. The use of rare earth neodymium magnets also helps to maintain lightweight portability without sacrificing any of the legendary Hartke attack.

Shape Your Tone
Designed to produce a responsive bass tone that's both tight and warm, the KB12 provides users with comprehensive tone control. Quickly dial in tone adjustments with the Shape knob and full 3-band EQ. When activated, the Shape knob selects the frequency range of a unique, fixed EQ curve, resulting in a greater variety of color and harmonics.

Kickback Versatility
Beyond sitting upright, the KB12 can be placed in "kickback" position for superior directionality and increased high-end clarity on stage. With a headphone output for home practice, an XLR direct output for live performance and a lightweight Class D amplifier, these combos are the answer for all bassists.

I usually play guitar but fill in when our bass player is out (contemporary Christian music). My old amp died on me (second time: no replacement parts) and I checked out this and it's bigger brother KB-15. I like the light weight, and it's a very tight low end but can warm nicely too: quite versatile. I use the other bassists' 70's Ampeg SVT 8-10 beast (!!!) when I fill in so I'm a bit spoiled. I'm going to side by side them some time and look forward to comparing them. I would much rather transport this loud little guy than and SVT.
