Hartke's lightweight TX300 Bass Amplifier is the answer for bass players who need a compact amp that can meet the demands of any gig. Featuring 300 watts packed into an aluminum chassis weighing only five pounds, and a flexible preamp with Hartke's Shape circuit for dialing up any tone, the TX300 is a portable powerhouse.
The TX300's preamp offers a 3-band EQ with Hartke's Shape circuit, providing enormous control over tone shaping. A Drive knob allows you to add subtle warmth to your sound or crank it up to complete fuzz. The onboard variable compressor can be dialed-up to even out note volume, add punch to your sound and protect your speaker cabinet from the hardest of finger-popping techniques.
The Shape control is a contour filtering system designed to enhance the sound of bass instruments. When enabled, it continuously sweeps a filter through various frequencies to customize the effect of the curve for the specific tonal characteristics of bass instruments. This curve provides moderate boost at certain frequencies and deep attenuation at others.
Featuring an anodized aluminum chassis and weighing only five pounds, the TX300 is both rugged and ultra-portable. This Class D amplifier provides the tonal characteristics of traditional amps, minus the backbreaking weight. A balanced XLR direct output allows connection straight into a mixer, ideal for direct recording or performance venue setups. And with a headphone output and 18″ (3.5mm) input for playing along with your tracks, the TX300 is equally at home in practice spaces as it is in studios or on the road.
