Sculpt Your Tone

The Hartke tone stack EQ section is tailored to capture the character of the bass guitar as soon as you plug in. Equipped with traditional Treble and Bass knobs, its so easy to pull a great bass tone. Plus, there’s also a foot switchable mid filter Frequency knob and Shape knob that sets the depth of the filter. The Brite button boosts high frequencies, bringing out the top-end of the bass and highlighting natural harmonic overtones.

Tonal Control

The LX8500 provides essential onboard effects designed to enhance your playing and add extra options to your tonal arsenal. An all-new integrated Drive control can add a touch of grit or throttled-out for an authentic fuzz tone. Of course, Hartke know you’re busy laying down a groove, so it’s selectable via foot switch. A variable Compressor knob can be used to smooth out transients and add punch & presence to your attack. As well, the compressor balances dynamics for players that employ slapping, tapping and thumb-picking techniques.

Gig-Ready Design

The ideal amplifier for the stage, studio and practice room! The Hartke LX8500 offers all the essential connections and features in a single compact and lightweight bass amp head. An XLR Direct Out with a Pre and Post EQ selection allows for direct connection to a PA or recording console. An 1/8” headphone output allows for silent practice sessions while an 1/8” auxiliary input can be used to connect phones or MP3 players. An effects loop with Send and Return connections can be used with your favorite time-based effects as well as onboard 1/4” tuner output. The LX8500 features two TRS footswitch inputs to engage Drive, Effects Loop, Brite and Frequency parameters.
