Hartke HA5000

Recommended Posts

Here we have a Hartke HA5000 (250 watts + 250 watts) amp,  racked in a Spider (Flightcase Warehouse)  New Old Stock flight bag. (The 250w + 250w basically means that there are two speaker outputs which feed a max of 250w down each spk cable to the speakers.)

At the said price it comes complete with the 3U bag (in excellent condition), rack ears, screws and is PAT tested September 2019. The flip side - I purchased this about 8 years ago as a back-up amp and foolishly did not rack it hence two of the lights on the graphic EQ got caught on something and do not work. The 'Crossover Balance' knob shaft has also come off - but does still work with a pair of plyers if you feel the need to adjust it.

I am located on the south coast just east of Portsmouth. At this stage only a cash deal and buyer collects.Image.thumb.jpeg.466666e0493b534358e01d766be0d84d.jpegImage-6.thumb.jpeg.0d3a73fb2be819199e25a3da6f398db7.jpeg

Hi Rob, Glad you like the amp as I have always thought it was a good one. Ref pedals - I haven't got those two but I may put a few up for sale in the coming months - keep an eye out

Best wishes

      Hi Guys 
      I am selling a 2 channel Aguilar AG500 amp head. It is in pretty nice condition, and comes with the pictured case, power cable and also the channel footswitch. It is a really amazing amp in my opinion, and the only reason I am selling it is because I now live in Barcelona and have resorted to a much more lightweight setup. 
      Collection from Maidstone, Kent. Until the 5th February, I can possibly sort out postage within the UK at buyers expense (courier and packaging). 
      You can contact me on here, or by mobile at +44 seven 429 58812 six. 
      P.s. I have been locked out of my old basschat account but can be found here: https://www.basschat.co.uk/profile/11275-matthewkeys/

      70s Dynacord Eminent II amplifier.  This is a valve powered amplifier originally intended for PA use, using a pair of EL34 run at high voltages for a rated output of 80 watts.  In stock form the amp had a four channel transistor preamp, and was built to be very clean and linear sounding.  The perspex front panel has green lights behind it, so it's quite stylish in a kitschy way!  
      I have modified the amp by removing two of the transistor preamp channels and building a preamp based on a late 60s Ampeg B15n using a 6sl7 valve.  This is the four black controls on the right of the front panel.  I used a high voltage FET stage to match the output and impedance requirements of the 6sl7 preamp to the power amp section of the Dynacord, but the signal path for this bypasses all of the original transistor preamp circuitry.  I have also rebuilt the power amp with new filter capacitors and a new pair of JJ E34L valves, and set the bias to suit them.  The two original input channels and their master volume and EQ are still functional too. 
      With the Ampeg style preamp, it provides a very pleasing classic bass sound, and would be a good addition to a retro-minded studio or for moderate volume live use.  It doesn't provide heavily overdriven sounds, but with the preamp gain turned up it does a great subtle breakup that thickens up the sound nicely, and it also has a nice range of clean bass tones.  It's quiet in terms of background noise too.  
      It's relatively compact for a valve head, and comes with a well used but useful ABS flight case to carry it in.  It has impedance selectors on the back panel to run 4, 8 or 16 ohm cabs.  
      I realise this has been around for a while - I've found a suitable box to pack it in, including the plastic case pictured.  So it's now £180 including postage via Parcelforce 48.

      Flight case or hard case for 3/4 double bass.
      It came with a new bass I bought, its in perfect condition - I would say it has never been taken on tour or seemingly anywhere before.
      Maybe someone on here could make good use of it.

      I love this bass players tone. I wonder if anyone can help identify what and how the bass player has achieved it. 
      Equipment and settings if you can work it out would be great! ☺️🙏🏼
      Thanks guys! 👍🏼
