Dear Mr Hartke, Words can't begin to express the sympathy we feel on the untimely demise of your company. Hartke products will be missed by everyone that used them and loved them deeply. I hope the expressions of sympathy that you must be receiving from everyone In the Uk and most of europe provide some consolation to you. Hopefully, knowing how much lots of us loved our Hartke's will give you a measure of comfort. Hartke bass amps were always popular with the dudes at band practice, on the gig and many men often spoke of its awesome tone and wonderful presence and power. They never had such a workhorse of an amp that inspired them the way the Hartke did; to go out night after night and entertain the masses.... Seriously though... What the hell has happened to Hartke's UK distribution? Hartke equipment used to be plentiful in many music shops across the UK, now its nowhere to be found. The products may as well not exist to us any more. WHY? I needed a new driver for my XL cab... Nowhere can get one at any reasonable time frame. in the end, I was forced to buy a different make and moved to an ampeg cab. Im not happy with it, I dont like it. My HA3500 could use a service, its working but somethings not quite right..... I desperately want a new HA3500 head to replace my ageing one... I may as well dream on. I will probably have to buy something else very soon. I've wanted to check out the TX series for at least 12 months but cant find one to try out anywhere. Id like to check out the new LX Series Heads.... Im not holding my breath for one either. It looks like music stores across the UK, Europe and online in general isn't any longer stocking Hartke. ITS A DAMN SHAME!
