The Hartke Kilo 1000 Watt Tube Bass Amp Head raises the standard for bass amplification. It offers Hartke's classic tone, enhanced flexibility and an abundance of power, along with all the newest concepts in bass amplification design. Its amazing power and control make the Kilo Bass Amplifier the ideal choice for every situation”from recording studios, to small clubs, to giant stadiums.

The Kilo delivers 500 watts at 2 ohms of power per side in stereo mode, and a massive 1,000 watts at 4 ohms in the bridged mono mode. To sculpt your sound, the Kilo has an all-tube class-A preamp, and logically arranged tone controls. The amp offers a classic tone stack three-band EQ, with Hartke's variable Shape circuit. For additional tone shaping, there is a 10-band graphic equalizer, as well as selectable Deep and Brite EQ curves. To add some œdirt to your sound, there is a variable tube Overdrive circuit, and to round out the dynamics, there is a fast and articulate Compressor circuit.

To connect your amplifier to speaker cabinets, the Kilo has both Speakon and 1/4-inch output jacks. It also provides an abundance of connections and signal routing features, including multi-point direct output switching, stereo Effects Loop, front and rear panel tuner outputs and footswitch jacks to remotely control the Mute, Overdrive, EFX, and EQ functions.

Not only does it pack optimal tone control and more than enough power to drive any cabinet, the Kilo's rugged design is perfect for life on the road. Its solid 3-rackspace construction, solid die-cast front panel and oversized handles make the Kilo eminently road-worthy.

hartke kilo with 410 cabs

By kim heindel

from Bonduel, WI

My kilo is powering a pair of hydrive 410 cabinets and the rig is a beast. Tons of power, Looks awesome, and most importantly, sounds really good. I also have an Eden head and have owned SWR, and the Hartke seems powerful and allows for way more control of the sound. The eq is sweet and the amount of sound options are limitless. The kilo is built like a freakin tank with a very heavy chasis. The scary problem was my local guitar center didn't stock it or the cabinets,and so I ordered it on faith, based on my past experiences with Hartke. I also wish it would have come with a footswitch, but it doesn't. Great Bass Amp! Highly Recommended.
