    Pros
    • + Flexible Tone range
    • + Relatively inexpensive
    • + Plenty of Power
    I'm sure someone will say I'm over-rating this, but I really feel that my first bass head was a great choice and a perfect stepping stone in discovering what real tone and flexibility is like.

    I paired this head with a matching VX215, and it worked beautifully. Pushed the drivers very well, and really helped me to progress beyond a bedroom bassist.

    Using a REAL eq so early in the game was pretty tricky, but as I said, this amp made it a perfect stepping stone toward proper tone.

    I wish I could rate higher than 5.0 for build quality! This head was a tank and shoed me that inexpensive gear can still be gig-tough. The same can be said for its overall value.

    Pros
    • + Cheap affordable, great sounding, good eq
    Cons
    • - only 250 watts, felt like i out grow it quickly after playing some bigger shows, not a lot of tonal variety
    The Hartke HA2500 was my first amp I had for shows after a string of very inexpensive practice amps! I remember getting it and the rack ears, racking it up feeling like a pro! Also had the matching 4x10 cab!

    The EQ was also amazing, i was also a fan of the compression after I knew what that was!

    The only downside to this amp is that its 250 watts and after playing a few shows and practices i realised id need something with a bit more power to keep up with the guitars and be heard over the kit, I still have this amp today as a backup!

    All in on really good reliable and fairly priced amp and great for someone that is just getting into gigging!
