  1. Has anyone here been able to get their hands on a New Hartke HyDrive 5410C ?
    Here a little info. . . .
    It's a new Combo Not yet available in the Samash stores on the east coast in the USA, this is a Sam Ash Brand and it's seem to be available on the west coast, and some mail order houses and even E-Bay.
    The Combo looks sweet . . ...
    Delivers 500 watts to its internal 4 ohm speaker system.
    Four 10-inch HyDrive neodymium hybrid cone speakers
    1-inch titanium high frequency horn

    I want to know what Upright Bass Players are saying about this combo!

    Thanks
    Frank

    I've tried my upright through my old Hartke half stack (3500, 4x10 cab) and wasn't a fan. The Hydrives might be different though.

    Metal cones? No thanks. If it's anything like previous Hartke cabs I tried, it will sound like ass - literally.

    This would also be my opinion, and I loved me some Hartke for bass guitar.

    To expand on ass, I think farting into a metal garbage can is also a good description here.

    I have never played on a Hartke amp or cabinet that sounded good.

    7yd, why do you keep following my posts anti-Hartke posts with the same scatological humor as mine? Can't we be both original? Cummon...

    Ok maybe I can't do it either. :p
