Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this Hartke KickBack 15 Bass Combo Amp! This amp has been imitated by scores of other companies, but none of them nail the design quite as well as Hartke. The idea is simple: Use the amp upright or kick it back and use it as a monitor. It's the perfect size for rehearsals, studio work and small gigs. The sound is that punchy, clear tone popularized by players like Jaco. It's the perfect way to get great bass sound in a hassle-free, on-the-go package.

Manufacturer's Description

Kick-Drive.

Hartke has revamped its acclaimed Kickback 15 Bass Combo with a new high-powered, lightweight design. Retaining the classic enclosure, the Kickback KB15 now features Hartke's patented HyDrive Speaker Technology. With 500 watts of Class D power, the Kickback KB15 is ruggedly portable and delivers serious bass tone that cuts through the mix.

The HyDrive Design

The KB15's 15" HyDrive speaker features carefully crafted paper/aluminum hybrid cone drivers. The hybrid makeup delivers an exceptional blend of warmth and attack that can't be attained by traditional all-paper bass speakers. The use of rare earth neodymium magnets also helps to maintain lightweight portability without sacrificing any of the legendary Hartke attack.

Shape Your Tone

Designed to produce a responsive bass tone that’s both tight and warm, the KB15 provides users with comprehensive tone control. Quickly dial in tone adjustments with the Shape knob and full 3-band EQ. When activated, the Shape knob selects the frequency range of a unique, fixed EQ curve, resulting in a greater variety of color and harmonics.

Kickback Versatility

Beyond sitting upright, the KB15 can be placed in “kickback” position for superior directionality and increased high-end clarity on stage. With a headphone output for home practice, an XLR direct output for live performance and a lightweight Class D amplifier, the KB15 is the answer for all bassists.

Overall Condition

This Hartke KickBack 15 Bass Amp Combo is in brand new pristine mint condition with absolutely no nicks, scratches, or blemishes of any kind.

Our in house guitar tech has inspected, tested, and cleaned all of our instruments on site prior to shipping. All of our instruments are guaranteed to be fully functional upon arrival.
