  • Hartke | Kickback Series



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

    The HyDrive Design

    The KB series 12" and 15" HyDrive speakers feature 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 Hartkeattack.

    Shape Your Tone

    Designed to produce a responsive bass tone that’s both tight and warm, the KB Bass Combos provide 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 KB Bass Combo 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 KB Bass Combo is the answer for all bassists.
