Best choice in for price
S.Elsevar, 14.05.2017
It's my first head after the years I've spent with several combos in same watts. But using a heads gives a room for experiment different cab. I'd paired the head w/ Eminence CA154 custom cab.
Sound from 2 different preamps with goes to simplest contour settings can let you go really deep and dark side of Mars(not even a moon). Absolute killer sensitive EQ let me adjust aggressive tone w/low contour.
Handling easiest except EQ setting. Also it's heavy and a little bit pain to transport.
Here is the pro:
1. Easy to adjust and dial a good tone.
2. Good range power to hold a small gig.
and cons:
1. It's really, really heavy.
2. Compressor is not effective, as much as individual pedals.
I highly recommend it, good budget choice instant any combos in sale.

Reliable Bass Head
jscot, 15.08.2013
I use this bass head mostly for studio work it provides a good balanced tone

Sound Quality: Good sound quality both from the Direct out and when using the outputs for cabs, the graphic eq works well you can get a variety of sounds from it as well as the hi and lo pass filters mean that a variety of sounds can be got from the head

Build Quality: I've had no issues with build quality it seems sturdy enough and the handle doesnt look like its going to come loose anytime soon it has been knocked around transporting it however it took the punishment well and i bet it will last for quite a while

Features: good amount of features which works well for a studio setting, a 10 band graphic eq, compressor, hi and lo pass filters all work well and i have no complaints about this head in general

amazing control.
18.11.2015
not over kill on power, but it gives a enormous amount of control on developing and changing your bass sound.
the eq is brilliant and really sensitive, the tube and transistor pre volumes go through the "effects send" which I use to power my fender rumble 15" with no treble and little mid for the bottom end. the eq, bass and treble boosts along with the main volume can be used to put the mid and top end through my hartke 410 cab. its a brilliant and very versatile amp. previously I had borrowed a ha3500 and was very impressed. so I bought the ha2500 and was not disappointed at all. I dont care about the led's the ha2500 dosent have.. listening hartke... are you? led's :-(
thomann, bloody excellent.

Totally worth it
kron, 27.12.2018
I am very satisfied with this amp. For this price, it has a lot of power, sounds great, I do not miss anyhing...I appreciate active/passive input, the compressor working just fine and even the EQ makes sound different. Paired with Harthe 4,5 B XL cab.
I can definitely recommend this amp, if you are interested to buy this one.
