Product information - HARTKE LH 500 Head

500 watt bass head with tube preamp and solid-state power amp

Due to the high-voltage, Class A tube preamp, the Hartke LH500 offers a warm and harmonious sound, which is reproduced by the 500 watt power amp with rich pressure and enormous volume reserves. In addition to the 3-band equalizer and the Brite switch for adjusting the sound, the Hartke LH500 head is also equipped with a balanced direct-out. 

HARTKE LH500 front panel
The LH500 has separate inputs for active and passive basses, a 3-band tone control with bright preset, an integrated limiter and a balanced DI output.

Intuitive operation with 3-band EQ

The clearly structured front panel of the Hartke LH 500 Head allows an incredibly intuitive and fast operation of the bass amplifier, so that the right sound can be found in no time. The musically designed 3-band tone control allows effective intervention in the sound spectrum, while the Brite switch can be activated for additional brilliance, giving the sound a radiant assertiveness. In addition, a switchable limiter is available to cut peak levels and prevent unwanted distortion from occurring. The Hartke LH500 also features a serial loop-in for connecting external effects units, while the balanced direct-out makes it easy to pick up the top in the recording studio or on stage. 

HARTKE LH500 Rearpanel
The LH500 has a serial effects loop and two connections for speaker cabinets. The fan cools the power transistors of the powerful output stage.
