The Hartke 122c features:
-1 x 12-Inch 300 watt HyDrive neodymium hybrid cone driver
-250 watts of power, 1-Inch titanium compression driver, EQ, 7-band graphic EQ, Bass and treble controls,
compressor with LED indicator,overdrive, and an XLR balanced direct output, which is very useful when playing in large venues, however I hardly used it. The XLR output of mine doesn't sound that good when recording, it's ok for demos, but in studio I wouldn't use it.
-The amp also features harmonics, brite and mix FX controls.
I found this amp to be very reliable in any situation; no matter the size of the venue I could feel the punch of the bass but at the same time the clarity of the bassline. Sometimes the bass amp would be my only monitor and even like that I could hear myself easily. It's also very resistant and solid built, heavy but not too much; it fits in any car and it's easy to carry. The manual is clear and sufficient, the amp comes also with images of different EQ, compressor, and tone settings for styles like rock, slap, motown, etc. You can also lean it backwards to get a wider sound, I found this pretty practical when using the amp as a monitor.
My Fender Jazz Bass sounds great trough it. This bass is very versatile and the Hartke 112C captures that perfectly and allows me to get the vintage tone, warmth and brightness I like. Thanks to the compressor and EQ you don't need external pedals to make your bass sound good, all the notes and articulations sound even and solid. Even when playing with a pick and with muted strings the punch is not lost. When I want an aggressive tone I set the treble around 3/4 and the strings will sound harsh and bright. Or if I want a warmer, deeper tone, I set the treble around 1/3 and cut some of the high frequencies on the EQ. The only negative thing that I have found with this amp is that it hums when you turn the treble knob too high.My bass makes a lot of noise too, so the additional buzz of the amp makes it even more noticeable. Fortunately thanks to the EQ almost all of this buzz can be eliminated. This is why I find this combo great for live performances but not for studio usage.
What I like the most about this amp is the power it gives you and how easy is to shape a specific tone. Also the compressor controls and FX help you achieve a more consistent sound right out. While I am also fond of Ampeg combos too (because they just make the Jazz Bass shine) I'm very happy with this amp and it has worked perfectly for me during live performances, rehearsals and practice. I'd qualify it as a very complete amp. Punch, versatility, definition, warmth, brightness, it has everything I need. Would buy again if I had to but I also would like to get an Ampeg too, both are great choices for the price. In conclusion:
-Best for live performances, rehearsals and jamming.
-Some noise when playing with lots of treble.
-Not great for studio recording, unless its recorded with microphones.
