Hartke has revamped its acclaimed Kickback 12 Bass Combo with a new high-powered, lightweight design. Retaining the classic enclosure, the Kickback KB12 now features Hartke's patented HyDrive Speaker Technology. With 500 watts of Class D power, the Kickback KB12 is ruggedly portable and delivers serious bass tone that cuts through the mix.
The HyDrive Design
The KB12's 12" HyDrive speaker features 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 Hartke attack.
Shape Your Tone
Designed to produce a responsive bass tone that’s both tight and warm, the KB12 provides 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.
Beyond sitting upright, the KB12 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 KB12 is the answer for all bassists.
