Overview

The Hartke Kickback Series 1215 120 Watt 1x15" Bass Combo Amp is also know as the "big bottom" Kickback combo because of its incredible and surprising production of powerful low end frequencies. Its versatile "two-way" design has all the bass you'll ever need thanks to its massive Hartke 15" aluminum-cone driver, 120 watts, fully adjustable Shape control, 3-band EQ and more.

Flexible enough to be played upright or "kicked back" as a monitor, Hartke's Kickback quickly became one of the most imitated (but never duplicated) designs in bass. Now it's available in three different versions for all kinds of applications from home practice and rehearsal to club dates and small theater venues.

    Comments about Hartke Kickback Series 1215 120 Watt 1x15" Bass Combo Amp:

    I have had this amp since about 1998 and it is pure awesome. It's got great, heavy tone, with a full-bodied punch, and enough juice to play up to a medium-sized club. If you're playing something bigger than that, then it's still not a bad option as you can use it as a monitor and pass it through to the PA via the built-in XLR jack.

    It sounds great clean, but I've also used it with effects, like distortion, and got some great sounds out of it. It's very pedal-friendly.

    Like I said, I've had this for about 15 years and it's been tossed around from various practice sessions and gigs, putting it to regular use for much of that time. It's light and compact for how loud it is. This is a very useful, workhorse-type amp. You'll likely consider it money well spent years down the road.

    Stick to Hartkekickback 12

    About Me Experienced

    Comments about Hartke Kickback Series 1215 120 Watt 1x15" Bass Combo Amp:

    I used the Hartke Kickback 12 for a long time, and it was great.
    So I thought when I upgraded to the Hartke Kickback 15 I'd be able to get louder.

    BUT.... for some reason, when you turn the volume up more than halfway, the sound gets real distorted & starts going in & out...
    So you actually can't get much louder than the 12" model. Ended up returning it.

    The Hartke Kickback 12 is a great amp for 400 bones ... However the Kickback 15 for 500 bones is not worth it...

      Comments about Hartke Kickback Series 1215 120 Watt 1x15" Bass Combo Amp:

      The Hartke 1215 120 watt bass amp is one powerful bass amp for its size. It can flat out produce the bass sound you are looking for that you usually get with the larger higher wattage amps. I also have a Hartke 250 watt bass head and a David Eden EX410 bass amp cabinet, and the 1215 kickback Hartke combo amp can give the Hartke/Eden rig a run for its money.

      Best amp I have ever used.

      By Phillip Corwin

      Comments about Hartke Kickback Series 1215 120 Watt 1x15" Bass Combo Amp:

      I first heard about the Hartke Kickback from a friend who teaches music. I played around on it for a while and eventually bought my own. I got mine used from Guitar Center for around $250. It worked great. I have been playing on it for almost 6 months now. No problems at all. I would highly recommend this product to a friend.
