  1. In honest I have loved my original HA3500. I have abused the hell out of it weekend after weekend for 15+ years. Its been frozen to death In the van in minus 18 conditions, Its swam in more than 1 pint of intoxicating beverage, Its banged up and only recently shown any issues that started with the compressor giving up and the power switch being on - on rather than on - off. Ive been through 2 tubes since the original but the last few gigs its been giving pops farts and something is definitely up with it. I have gotten so familiar with it that set up is a breeze and I know by the size and shape room, and what voices sound like in said room, what i'm going to have to do to dial in my sound. Its all just so quick and easy. Im hoping that Enough people will kick up a fuss about the UK supply issue and Hartke flip Hal Leonard off for someone better. This though..... Its the last chance.
  2. Update. Finally have My hew Hartke head in its way. Should be with me today. This has been far more work that it should be to get 1 piece of equipment.
  3. I have. I really hope he sees it and realises he has major problems with distribution outside of the USA
  4. You are probably right Merton, but surely Its a huge loss to the company to loose distribution to an entire continent? Its a massive shame to us Hartke users/customers who have previously had no issues buying gear now being cut off. To us in the uk Hartke may as well be a dead company. This morning BAX music were showing a HA3500 in stock. I poped it in my basked, rushed through the checkout only to be met with this... I bet, from recent previous experience, If i continue... During those 8 days mentioned in orange above, i will receive an email that cancels the order due to a stocking issue . I literally believe there are none... and none coming.
  5. Dear Mr Hartke, Words can't begin to express the sympathy we feel on the untimely demise of your company. Hartke products will be missed by everyone that used them and loved them deeply. I hope the expressions of sympathy that you must be receiving from everyone In the UK and most of Europe provide some consolation to you. Hopefully, knowing how much lots of us loved our Hartke's will give you a measure of comfort. Hartke bass amps were always popular with the dudes at band practice, on the gig and many men often spoke of its awesome tone and wonderful presence and power. They never had such a workhorse of an amp that inspired them the way the Hartke did; to go out night after night and entertain the masses.... Seriously though... What the hell has happened to Hartke's UK distribution? Hartke equipment used to be plentiful in many music shops across the UK, now its nowhere to be found. The products may as well not exist to us any more. WHY? I needed a new driver for my XL cab... Nowhere can get one at any reasonable time frame. in the end, I was forced to buy a different make and moved to an ampeg cab. Im not happy with it, I dont like it. My HA3500 could use a service, its working but somethings not quite right..... I desperately want a new HA3500 head to replace my ageing one... I may as well dream on. I will probably have to buy something else very soon. I've wanted to check out the TX series for at least 12 months but cant find one to try out anywhere. Id like to check out the new LX Series Heads.... I'm not holding my breath for one either. It looks like music stores across the UK, Europe and online in general isn't any longer stocking Hartke. ITS A DAMN SHAME!
  6. I tried this in the wanted section a few times but drawn a blank so thought id just try it here. I figure there are a hell of a lot of XL series cabs with just 1 shredded Aluminium cone out in the world, unloved and unwanted. I have one of those too... but i do kind of love mine, and I'm looking to re home your decent working drivers into my poorly cab. Anyone out there willing to part ways with one/some (i'm looking to keep a few spares) and willing to ship them too me, at my cost, let me know how many Sheckles of the realm i should part with for the privilege, and i shall respond with an Aye or a Nae.
  7. Damn just what im looking for at the right kind of money... Unfortunately Peterborough is about a 3.5 hour drive for me.
  8. where about in the world are you and what kind of Money are you lo0king for?

  11. Long story short..... I need advice I'm sure I have blown the drivers in my 211 pro cab. They aren't cooked, but looks by the creases around the edge the cone, that they have hyper extended and are week around the ribbed surround. Even at low volume levels, they look like they are now travelling forward too far, sound distorted and pop loudly on low notes. The cone/coil travel smoothly back and forth and don't scratch, no burnt smell or anything else. Am i right in thinking these drivers have probably failed mechanically? If so...... I am looking for replacement drivers for my 211 pro cab. the drivers are marked with: XWCP99010 I found them in the Warwick store under a part number of -[url="https://shop.warwick.de/en/Amplifiers/Spareparts+for+Amps/Speaker/10_+Speaker+-+16+Ohm+_+94dB+_+Range:+35-3500+Hz+_+Resonant+Freqency:+50+Hz"]XA CN 90530[/url] but they have none in stock, and its been like that for at least the last 3 months. I have been waiting a while to see if they get new stock, but it seams that they may have discontinued the item. I am eager to get my cab up and running again please could anyone advise on a source for this part or a suitable alternative. It has been suggested to me that the XWCP99010 is an [url="https://www.thomann.de/gb/eminence_delta10_b.htm"]Eminence Delta 10b 16ohm[/url] or at least a very similar driver. Does anyone know if that is correct or know of suitable replacement part? What about the [url="http://www.eminence.com/speakers/speaker-detail/?model=Basslite_SC10_16"]Eminence BASSLITE SC10-16[/url] neodymium's .... could I just seal up the 4 cab ports and use those instead? This cab only cost me about£150 slightly used just about a year ago . It fits in the boot of a car so ideal for rehearsals and small pub gigs. It used to sound OK too. Id ideally like to fix it, but not at a cost of more that about £120. I have seen used Fender rumble 210 and Hartke Hydrive 210 cabs go used on ebay for around £180 - 200 and I would have thought those better overall that the warwick. Cheers all

  14. You can go direct but its alot of work. I have done it a few times though.

In some uni's the venue is controlled/ run by an independent promoter, you might need their details too. Don't expect much money for the evening, but it will be good for networking. On one occasion I booked the student venue on campus and put on an evening of bands.
