Product Description

Hartke VXL Bass Attack Preamp and Bass Guitar Direct Box delivers Hartke’s Exclusive Shape Circuitry in an all-new professional pedal!
The VXL Bass Attack is built into an all steel chassis with two stomp-proof switches and LED status indicators. It features Hartke’s Variable Notch Shape Circuit with adjustable frequency, a three-band EQ with bass tuned center frequencies, a variable harmonic control circuit that emulates the warmth of a tube driver. Other features include Mix and Output level controls, On/Off and Shape In/Out switching for switching sounds during a performance, Pre/Post direct out with a balanced gold plated XLR output, and the Bass Attack will operate on either 9-volt battery, optional AC Adapter, or phantom power through the XLR. What took Hartke so long to design a bass pedal? Well, these things take time if you want to do it right!

Hartke VXL Bass Attack Features

  • VX tone shaping pre-amp/direct box
  • Famous Hartke shape circuitry
  • 3-band bass, treble and bright control
  • Harmonic control for tube drive emulation

  • Selectable pre, post or parallel 1/4-inch in and out

The Hartke Bass Attack Pedal is a tone-shaping pre-amp that doubles as a direct box, featuring the famous Hartke Shape Circuitry. The two-button style stomp box has a three band EQ for adjustments of Bass, Treble, and Bright controls, plus a Harmonic control that emulates the warmth and drive of a tube so well that you’ll never want to turn it off. The Hartke Bass Attack Pedal gives you the ability to finally get the sound you want, and everything in between.

Instant "great tone"!
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
With pre-amp/direct box pedals ranging from $39 (Behringer) to $250 and above (Tech 21 SansAmp Deluxe), it's hard to tell which is the right solution for your stage/studio needs. (I've tried pedals across the range). But THIS one, right out of the box, is the best bang for the buck of them all. It makes an average bass/rig sound like a GREAT rig, and a good bass/rig sound like a premium/custom rig! If you want your tone warmer, brighter, deeper, cleaner, or just more "in your face" for solos, or bass driven tunes (aren't they all), this is what you need! Simply plug in, play it flat, and dial in what you need (plus or minus). It's THAT simple. Just let the Hartke tone circuitry "do what it do, baby"! On my last big stage road gig, I packed nothing but an axe and plugged into a generic direct box with only a stage monitor as my rig. If I'd had this pedal, my already good sounding Fender Jazz would have sounded like the kind of custom rig that costs more than your car, a decent car!
