    I have used Peavey for years, as well as Ampeg and Vox.
    I always found it easy to adjust my sound for room size or shape or what ever with Peavey.
    I want to put together a Hartke rig with a 4.5XL and 2.5XL.
    So I was wondering what people are doing with the LH500.
    Are you using preamps and pedals to colar your sound, and using the head more like a power amp?
    If so, what are you using for a pre amp?

    Is their any reason I may want to use the LH500 over the HA5500c, as it looks like it is more like what
    I all ready use.

    Or should I look at another amp, I am not really locked in to a Hartke head, but like the speakers.
    I have a Rick and a Jazz bass and normally used their traditional sound, but I am doing Jazz Funk
    now and toned down a little using half round strings.
