Bass without end

First impression of the amp: "OK, I would have presented it to me bigger .. whether the really also its 500W delivers?" The answer is yes! When I have played the amp somewhat, I have gone up with the volume more and more until I arrived at 12 o'clock at the volume regulator and I was pointed out that in the neighboring room the glasses in the locker wiggle. Volume brings the part so and it does not exceed a bit. Also not at full volume (the test took place when nobody was home).

To build:
The part looks EXTREM stable (it is probably synonymous) and is not too difficult (I guess the part weighs about 20KG). The amp is in my opinion clearly for gigs (just synonymous because of the XLR output for NEN Power Mixer or similar) and tape samples well suited. For samples the amp has no problems with the volume of the other instruments.

For processing:
In short: impeccable! Looks nice, the potis do not rush, everything just as it should!

To the sound:
Now the most important, the sound. Damn versatile! Straight through the shape control, you have the possibility to vary your bass sound between "dull" and "shrill". Bass, mid, and treble controls provide good control over the sound. With its unique design (metal / paper speaker), the speaker has a wide range of sounds from dull to light, providing a balanced sound.

All in all: the part was worth every penny! Clear purchase recommendation!

Hartke Kickback 15 2015

Jean-François910, 03.11.2016
Received very quickly: Thank you Thomann!
Bought because I play in 3 groups and my SVT cabinet version Norman was no longer suitable for my old back. The ampli is light (16 kgs).
Small footprint for a 15 inches. The Kickback 15 inspires confidence. The 250 watts RMS announced are there (500 watts in peak). Power ok to play at home, in rehearsal, in small or medium concert even with a drummer version woodcutter. For large scenes it remains the direct symmetrical output and the inclined position will allow to use it as return. Equalization is very effective and the shape function a real plus. The pots are very progressive and look good.
If you play a good bass you can access all types of sound: deep bass, round sound, medium percussion etc. Play at the fingers, at the mediator, Slap: Everything goes well. I am surprised.
Small bemol: it is not possible to connect an extension bass (not serious because the 15 inch hp is ample enough) but for the 443 euros requested value for money is very good.
I am very satisfied with my purchase.
