    I got mine recently but I can't get the overdrive to were I want it. It sounds alien-ish, any advice?

    Keep it low. I set mine to 4 or 5. Also watch the compression too. To much will kill the amps volume.

    Thank you! I'm sure this club will grow big over time. I notice more and more famous musicians are starting to use the Kilo:bassist:

    Do either of you guys run in bridged mono ? My amp shuts down if I try it. Not that one amp through an 810 isnt loud enough but it would be nice to use all the options the amp has.

    Although up until recently I ran it in stereo through the two cabs, I've had the amp since last year

    Is this an older version of the Kilo or the different 'Premiere' version ?

    I think that was a pre production unit. Never actually produced.

    Thank you, AdamR. Also got the answer from : http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f15/redesigned-hartke-kilo-943501/

    The picture is for the prototype version ('Premiere') that was announced but never marketed as such, though strangely advertised with that provisional design by several distributors. The only Kilo that exists is the one with all the knobs and indicators arranged by horizontal lines.

    I find the prototype panel was much cooler than the final version. Namely the graphic EQ volume slider with the red light and the knobs logical organisation.

    Hoping to be soon the happy owner of a Kilo! :smug:

    Has anyone tried rolling tubes through the pre ? Wondering if it makes a noticeable difference.

    Adam I noticed you switched from using an Ampeg 8x10 to the Hydrive 810. How would you compare the Hartke to the Ampeg?

    The Ampeg was dark and loose, The Hydrive it tight and bright. The Hydrive is also a good 40lbs lighter.

    Damn straight. I also tested my Kilo side by side with an Ampeg SVT Classic and found the Kilo to be much more clear sounding.
