Hartke knows that when you live and breathe only bass gear, it better be perfect. That is why their Bass Attack Direct Boxes have always been designed to do much more than simply connect your bass to the board. Active electronics power a full-blown bass preamp using classic Hartke Drive and Tone controls and the Variable Shape Circuit featured on the Kickback Combos. For effects, Hartke engineers went way back to their analog roots to create an incredibly lush Chorus that retains note definition no matter how low you go and a Fuzz pedal that just rips solos through the mix. Their digital looper fast forwards into the future, creating up to six hours of looped phrases that are indistinguishable from the originals. All Hartke effects feature True Bypass switching, dual power, rugged foot-worthy switches mounted to die-cast stompboxes, and the stamp of approval from the best team of bass gear engineers on the planet.
