    Im looking at used amps for my new hardcore band.

    Clean loud thumpin bass, usually picked and semi-fast

    the competitors are:
    -Hartke Ha3000
    -Kustom KB200

    Will be running into an 80s peavey 1x15.

    Both heads are the same price used.

  4. Hartke no doubt. I got an HA2500 as my first real amp and still love it. It has a tight sound and very clean. No complaints here, it is even in my rack as a backup amp.
  5. I'd picked the Hartke, I've had that same Kustom and it sounded too bright for hardcore IMO
  6. Hartke.

    those other guys can't even spell.
