The lightweight TX300 Bass Amplifier is the answer for bass players who need a compact amp that can meet the demands of any gig. Featuring 300 watts packed into an aluminum chassis weighing only five pounds, and a flexible preamp with Hartke's Shape circuit for dialing up any tone, the TX300 is a portable powerhouse.

The TX300's preamp offers an active 3-band EQ with Hartke's Shape circuit, providing enormous control over tone. The Drive knob allows users to add a subtle warmth to their sound or crank it up to complete fuzz. The onboard compressor can be dialed-up to even out note volume, add punch to the sound and protect the speaker cabinet from the hardest of finger-popping techniques.

In Shape
The Shape control is a contour filtering system designed to enhance the sound of bass instruments. When enabled, it allows the player to continuously sweep a filter through various frequencies to customize the effect of the curve for the specific tonal characteristics of their instruments. This curve provides moderate boost at certain frequencies and deep attenuation at others.

Light & Versatile
Featuring an anodized aluminum chassis and weighing only five pounds, the TX300 is both rugged and ultra-portable. This Class D amplifier provides the tonal characteristics of traditional amps, minus the backbreaking weight. A balanced XLR direct output allows connection straight into a mixer, ideal for direct recording or performance venue setups. And with a headphone output and 1/8" (3.5mm) input for playing along with your tracks, the TX300 is equally at home in practice spaces as it is in studios or on the road.

Great store, Great staff, Great experience!


Always a pleasure to shop Sam Ash of Carle Place. Staff are always very welcoming and professional. The sales rep that helped me was top notch. I wish I could remember his name but he was dynamite! Keep up the great work because the other store down the block could never hold a candle to your outstanding customer experience!



Great Amp Head!


Purchased this amp head as an open-box item and it's worked out exactly as I hoped. Using it to power a Hartke 2x10" cab and the power is strong and clean. The controls for gain, compression, and eq are plenty to let me get a full range of sound out of it.



Great sounding head and it's pretty powerful too


Sounds great, it's powerful and the buying experience was awesome. Thanks Vito



Good for practice, even if you only have headphones for it


A great versatile amp for practice at home. Love the amazing tones made by Hartke.



I would not by this product


I really liked this amp but I had to return it due to master volume knob and mute button not working. With that said, it was a really great response to my issue and I received a full refund immediately!



Hartke TX300 300-Watt Lightweight Bass Amplifier Head


I've been a Hartke user for over 20 years and I needed to replace my Kickback 15 amp. So, my natural choice was another Hartke amp. The TX-300 is one of the best purchases I have ever made. The sound is great, its portability is superb and the price is just right!

Fantastic sound with great portability and price.


I bought this to pair with a Hartke 4.5XL 4x10 cab and couldn't be any happier with it. The onboard compressor removes the need for one in my pedal board, and the found modeling is highly customizable.



It's a baby Hartke - a loud baby


Great amp




Big sound, small size, small price


This is a typical Hartke product - controls aren't the same. Power output is great plenty when paired with a cab for use as a reference monitor in big situations or as a stand alone head in medium rooms. I use it paired with a 2x10 cab with a piezo horn. A little trebley but nothing you can't control.



Great, but could use a -20db feature.


Great amp for the cost. One issue is an input for an active bass. I realize this is easy to adjust, but if using multiple basses (some passive pick ups) or multiple users (such in a church worship band situation) it would simply be a nice convenience.
