Sculpt Your Tone
The Hartke tone stack EQ section is tailored to capture the character of the bass guitar as soon as you plug in. Equipped with traditional Treble and Bass knobs, as well as a footswitch selectable mid filter Frequency knob and Shape knob that sets the depth of the filter. The Brite button can be selected to boost high frequencies, bringing out the top-end of the bass as well as highlight natural harmonic overtones.
The LX8500 provides essential onboard effects designed to enhance your playing and add extra options to your tonal arsenal. An all new integrated Drive control can be used to add a touch of grit or throttled-out for an authentic fuzz tone and selectable via foot switch. A variable Compressor knob can be used to smooth out transients, add punch and presence to your attack, as well as balance dynamics for players that employ slapping, tapping and thumb-picking techniques.

An XLR Direct Out with a Pre and Post EQ selection allows for direct connection to a PA or recording console.
