PRESS RELEASE (NOW AVAILABLE): Hartke’s Bass Attack 2 Delivers Direct Box Capabilities, Premium Preamp Circuitry and Overdrive Effects

NOW AVAILABLE: Bass Attack 2

Now available, the Bass Attack 2 combines Hartke’s classic preamp/direct box circuitry and striking tone into a rugged, zinc die cast stompbox-style design. Its ultra-clean, flexible output stage and vast array of tone shaping controls include balanced XLR direct outputs and Hartke's legendary Shape EQ, Contour and Overdrive effect. It's time to get back on attack…

This second generation of the Hartke Bass Attack offers unique preamp tone sculpting capabilities. The stompbox gives players access to Hartke's Shape circuit, which activates a specialized preset EQ curve that can be customized using the Shape Frequency and Amount knobs. Players can also add a little extra color with the Bass and Treble knobs, along with the dedicated Contour switch.

The Bass Attack 2's Overdrive circuit provides bass players with creative control over their tone from subtle tube emulation to grungy fuzz. The Tone and Mix knobs let you determine the perfect amount of high-frequency growl and blend between distorted and dry signals.

The Bass Attack 2 provides direct output options for FOH or studio recording consoles. It features a 1/4" parallel output for dry signals, a 1/4" effect output for your amp, and a balanced XLR direct output. In addition, its Pre/Post switch allows players to adjust the sound on stage without affecting the direct output signal. The Bass Attack 2 can even operate off a mixer's phantom power via its XLR jack.
