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.

Great little amp

At 500 wats, this is a solid practice amp as well as for smaller gigs. I tried the twin 10 of the same model as prefer this one for a few reasons. I love the punchiness of the half aluminum speakers. Being that it's only half aluminum, the paper portion gives you a nice rounded tone that isn't too thin. This amp is ported so it can handle the low tones a 5 string for the most part. It loses a little punch at The very bottom end, but still handles it really well. all in all, this is a great amp for the money and at under 30lbs, is much easier than hauling around your heavy full rig to every band rehearsal and smaller gigs.

Hartke KB12 500 watts combo

5

Excellent combo bass amp. 500 watts (285 at 8 ohms); perfect for practice or medium sized gigs. For larger ones you can always go directly into the PA. Great sound and very light for this older musician LOL
