    Yeah I know what you're thinking.... BUT, I'm using my hartke amp all the time now instead of my Ampeg because I like the tone better for my rock band. It has what I would call an aggresive, Growly tone that I like and it doesn't matter which of my speakers I use (hartke,Bag End,Carvin) I can still get that tone. And it is also MUCH louder than the ampeg for the same wattage.My Hartke and Ampeg amps are toatally different sounding from each other so I will use whichever one seems to fit the gig I'm playing. My question is, what other brand of amp has a similar sound to Hartke? Are there any or does it have a tone that no one else duplicates

    Claremore OK.

    Butt:D :D

    Just kidding, kinda. I sold my 7000 about 4 months ago and bought a svp-pro preamp and a carvin 1500 watt power amp and I could not ever dream of playing a hardly uhhm... I mean hartke again:D . Its definately clean and strong.
    Maybe its just the need for something different that drives us to change amps and stuff not really better but just the need to hear something different :D
