best amp I've ever played through.
Nathan V., 02.05.2020
I've been using this amp combined with the vx410 hartke for 6 years now.
it's my favourite amp, I love the sound, it handles great, and it's very sturdy.
The ability to use solid state or tubes, and even mix the 2, is absolutely amazing. Although I warn you, if you get used to this you might never be able to fully enjoy an amp without this option again.

There are only two slight issues. first; after a few years, the knobs started making a slight cracking noise when turning while the amp was on. I should probably just take em off and clean the sand off that got it's way into the gaps... not a big deal.

second; it's very heavy. I don't mind this a whole lot because all the positives heavily outweigh this one slight drawback.

I'd recommend this amp to anyone, except maybe if you have severe back issues.

It's awfully sobering to realize how a company's roster of endorsers can actually restrain oneself from eventually buying their gear - for no good reason, that is.

In my particular case, it's always been that with Hartke amps which I invariably linked mentally to their prime bassist endorser of long standing, Victor Wooten.

Now, much as I admire Victor's virtuoso trick bag, I never was one to emulate his sound, for the simple reason that it never stood out (in my opinion) to be an outstanding forte of his style.

When I did order the Hartke HA 3500 from Thomann a couple of months ago, it was for a couple of fairly disdainful reasons, none of them having to do with sound considerations by a long shot: I knew that here was a bass amp that had been around for ages with considerable success, I knew I could rely on their delivering within the hour, and by all likelihood I'd be able to resell it as soon as I had been able to secure a "dignified" implement to replace the makeshift solution.

As it turned out, I never strayed off course again once I seriously put the Hartke to the acid test. My personal acid test being, "Can it handle a bowed double bass solo on a medium size jazz club gig?". You can take my word for it, that's the most complex assignment you possibly can impose on an amp.

The Hartke rid itself of the task with unequivocal poise, which made it my amp of choice immediately and ever since.

Best choice for this price
MrFO, 05.03.2018
I am using this amp in second reherseal room as backup. Mostly I am using Ampeg CVT CL, so it's hard to beat. However, Hartke does his job and even in compare with SVT CL it's really ok. Amp has nice attack, and really nice rumble sound. I am using it for death metal, and it's heavy enough. If you like to change your sound settings there is fine equalizer build in. You can easily turn it on or off whenever you like. Compressor build in also does his job. You can also choose preamp between tube and transistor or both at once. Housing is heavy and it seems to be solid, but don't interfere to looks realy aesthetic. In sum:
advantages:
- price
- attack
- rumble sound
- solidity
- multitude of configurations
- easy setup
- good build in EQ and compressor
- good looking
disadvantages:
- found none

Hartke HA 350 Bass head
Steviebass, 24.02.2018
Bought a Hartke HA350 amp head some years ago, It is used in conjunction with a Hartke VX410 and on top a Hartke 410XL. It has been gig many times and has never let me down, same with the cabinets, The bands I have used this equipment with have been a Country / Americana, Rock, and now a blues band. The amp has fantastic tone control to cover the genre mentioned to my complete satisfaction, If it had to be stolen! I would replace it with another no need to consider anything else unless I was to spend a lot more money. I have used other amps in rehearsal rooms and venues with there own back line. However always happy to get plugged into my own gear. Buy one, I'm sure you wont regret it (no I don't work for Hartke).
