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.

Fantastic little combo amp

5

Well, I am impressed with this lightweight combo amp. It has a rich tone and is user friendly. You have the basic 3 band eq layout with a frequency shape. This little amp is loud and has a full range 12" cone. You can gig with this combo just make sure you use the on board DI and come through the house and let this be your personal monitor so you do not blow the cone. This is a major step up from the original kickback 12. From 120 watts to 500 watts is a great boost. Plus this kickback the weight has been reduced. This is a great buy.
