    I am considering buying a hartke VX3500 combo amp,I wanted to know if anybody has any experience with this combo amp in a live situation and if so can you offer some feedback on it??..I have played it in store and like it but just wanted to see what others who have used it live think.......or is there something completely different that would be better suited for country music?
  2. I played one of these when I was interstate recently. I was playing a Stingray they had in the store through this combo and it didnt sound like the Hartke sound I am used to. I have a VX115, and I thought this 410 sounded a lot like the 115 with regards to note articulation. No matter how I EQ'd the head, the tone just seemed boomy - a bit of a blurred bass/low mids. Upping the higher mids and top end freq's seemed to only add hiss, not any sort of note articulation. Seemed plenty loud though.
