Hartke Kickback KB12
Hartke has revamped its acclaimed Kickback 12 Bass Combo with a new high-powered, lightweight design. Retaining the classic enclosure, the Kickback KB12 now features Hartke’s patented HyDrive Speaker Technology. With 500 watts of Class D power. The Hartke Kickback KB12 is ruggedly portable and delivers serious bass tone that cuts through the mix.
The KB12’s 12″ HyDrive speaker features carefully crafted paper/aluminum hybrid cone drivers. The hybrid makeup delivers an exceptional blend of warmth and attack that can’t be attained by traditional all-paper bass speakers. The use of rare earth neodymium magnets also helps to maintain lightweight portability without sacrificing any of the legendary Hartke attack.
Designed to produce a responsive bass tone that’s both tight and warm, the Hartke Kickback KB12 provides users with comprehensive tone control. Quickly dial in tone adjustments with the Shape knob and full 3band EQ. When activated, the Shape knob selects the frequency range of a unique, fixed EQ curve, resulting in a greater variety of color and harmonics.
Beyond sitting upright, the KB12 can be placed in “kickback” position for superior directionality and increased high-end clarity on stage. With a headphone output for home practice, an XLR direct output for live performance and a lightweight Class D amplifier, the Harke Kickback KB12 is the answer for all bassists.
