    I just bought a Hartke Kickback15 off ebay and brought it home. Wow, it's VERY bright sounding!!! Also, I'm not sure how to effectively use the shape control. I would benefit from comments you guys may want to offer up - if you're using a kickback and have certain settings you prefer, please respond. By the way, I play both Reverend Rumblefishes and vintage Jazz basses. Many thanks!

    I have a kickback 10 that I use for practice and for when I jam with a piano player.

    As I recall (don't have the amp in front of me), I leave it set flat with the shape engaged and set at about 1:00.

    Yeah I have the 10 as my main amp, I usually don't mess with that thing. But you can always play with it, i would say that its a stylistically specific function.
