Product Description

Combining Hartke's classic preamp/direct box circuitry into a rugged, zinc die cast stompbox-style design, the Bass Attack 2 allows bass players to sculpt their tone.

  • Bass preamp and direct box with overdrive
  • Shape EQ circuit with Frequency and Amount control
  • Bass and Treble knobs with Contour EQ switch
  • Overdrive effect with Mix wet/dry control

Study of Shape
Leveraging Hartke's years of experience focused on the needs of bass players, the Bass Attack 2 provides unique tone sculpting capabilities. The stompbox gives players access to Hartke's Shape circuit, which activates a specialized preset EQ curve that can be customized using the Shape Frequency and Amount knobs. Players can also add a little extra color with the Bass and Treble knobs, along with the dedicated Contour switch.

Transient Attack
The Bass Attack 2's Overdrive circuit provides bass players with creative control over effects ranging from subtle tube emulation to grungy fuzz. The Tone knob lets you determine the perfect amount of high-frequency growl, while a dedicated Mix knob manages the blend between distorted and dry signals.

Solid DI
Featuring a 1/4" parallel output for dry signals, a 1/4" effect output for your amp, and a balanced XLR direct output, the Bass Attack 2 provides flexible output options for FOH or studio recording consoles. Its direct output Pre/Post switch allows players to adjust stage sound without affecting the mix sent from the XLR to FOH. The Bass Attack 2 can also operate off of a mixer’s phantom power via its XLR jack.

Solid preamp and DI
What is your opinion of this product?
The preamp has some nice tone shaping options. Has a mid scoop button for fast eq'ing when changing to slap. Nice mid section for cutting through the mix. The od is more sizzle then crunch for my taste, but to each, his own. At $100 it's a bargain. It's in my bag and has been with me on my last 3 gigs.

A little disappointed
What is your opinion of this product?
Not what I expected from Hartke. Saw YouTube videos demo of this unit..sounded pretty good. And it actually does dial in a useful tone I like. But it's basically nothing a parametric EQ wouldn't do..with the convenience of being a DI too. Knobs seem cheap and footswitch doesn't look very surdy. If u set it and forget it..it'll probably work for a long time. However I tried recording with it..using XLR out with the built in EQ I decided on..and a separate channel from the unaffected output of the DI. I had phasing issues I could hear in the headphones. Kinda like chorus effect only same pitch just receiving signal at different times. I don't think the advertisement really promised anything more than a DI with EQ (except the distortion feature that is unusable because there's no crunch..only sizzle).so if it's worth 149.00 to you for a DI with EQ..then maybe give it a try. If I had it to do over again..I should've just bought the GED 2112 preamp from SansAmp.
