Hartke TX300 Bass Amplifier Review
While the Hartke TX300 may be small in stature, don’t let the size fool you; this amp is packed with power and features!
The current trend in bass amplification is to reduce weight and size, without sacrificing sound.
Weighing in at only five pounds, the TX300 is one of Hartke’s contenders in this arena.
While the TX300 may be small in stature, don’t let the size fool you; this amp is packed with power and features!
Personally, when looking for a lightweight bass amp, I always want something that not only offers clear sound and rich tone, but versatility as well.
The TX300 is well thought out in design and features… here are my top six favorites:
- I was pleasantly surprised by the built-in drive and compression. These two effects alone could save you enough to cover the whole amp. Save money – save space – who wants to lug more gear around than needed?
- The Shape control and 3-band EQ allow you to subtly find your ‘sweet-spot’ and enhance the sound of your bass.
- The 1/8” input and headphone jack makes this the perfect practice tool; no waking up the neighbors every time you want to jam in the middle of the night.
- The ¼” jack and speakon jack make it possible to use this with new as well as older cabs; perfect for when you are traveling to a gig or studio where they are supplying the cab.
- In larger venues, the DI capability (XLR out) could also have you using this as a direct line out to the house.
- The voltage selector allows you the flexibility to use this anywhere on the planet.
