        Hartke LH1000. 1000 watt Bass Amplifier Head

        • A valve front-end design using classic 12AX7 tubes
        • Solid state output
        • Sculpt your sound with Brite and Limiter switches
        • Perfect for gigging bassists
        • The LH1000 is used by legendary bass player Victor Wooten

        The LH1000 has a classic 12AX7 Class-A tube front-end design with a solid-state output. Trick out the Treble and Bass Shelving to give its warm tone a little edge, or use the brite and limiter switches to further sculpt your sound. Its intuitive front panel design also makes adjustments on the fly a breeze. Although the LH1000 is a perfect complement to our HyDrive cabinets, it also works as a seamless accompaniment to any bass cab on the market.

        Obviously a head with this kind of power is perfect for gigging musicians in any number of live applications, which is why we made sure the LH1000 is as durable as it is versatile and powerful. With a two-rackspace, metal frame chassis, steel faceplate and handles, this amp is made for the road. The LH1000 is known for its raw, reliable power and is also perfect for additional shaping through your effects console or stomp box.

        With all the necessary features for complete tonal control, along with ample power and rugged design, the LH1000 will ensure your bass playing receives the positive attention it deserves.

        • 1. AC Voltage selection switch - This switch is used to set the LH Series operation voltage. Be sure to check that the switch is set correctly for your country.
        • 2. EFFECTS SEND jack - Use this 1/4" unbalanced jack to send low impedance (100 ohm) signal from the Model LH1000 to a professional outboard effects processor such as a reverb, echo, chorus, flanger, or harmonizer device. Output level is approximately 0 dB to +4 dB and is post-EQ and post-Limiter but unaffected by the setting of the VOLUME control. You can also use the Effect Send jack to route signal to an external mixing console or amplifier with an input sensitivity of +4 dB.
        • 3. EFFECTS RETURN jack - Use this 1/4" unbalanced jack to return low impedance (600 ohm) signals to the Model LH1000 from a professional outboard effects processor.
        • 4. Fan - The fan provides vital cooling to your Model LH500 and LH1000. Make sure that it is kept free of all obstructions and that cool, fresh air is accessible at all times. Also, try to ensure that the Model LH1000 is used in a dust-free environment.
        • 5. SPEAKER OUTPUT A - Connect any 4, 8, or 16 ohm bass cabinet(s) to these standard unbalanced 1/4" jacks. WARNING: Because of the high power levels and low frequency content of the signal generated by the Model LH1000, use only appropriately rated speaker cabinets (at least 600 watts at 4 ohms) that are specifically designed for bass instruments. We recommend that Hartke amplifiers be used with Hartke bass cabinets, although other brands of speakers can be used.
        • 6. BRIDGE output connector - Connect a Speakon connector cable here when operating in Bridge mode.
        • 7. SPEAKER OUTPUT B - Connect any 4, 8, or 16 ohm bass cabinet(s) to these standard unbalanced 1/4" jacks. WARNING: Because of the high power levels and low frequency content of the signal generated by the Model LH1000, use only appropriately rated speaker cabinets (at least 600 watts at 4 ohms) that are specifically designed for bass instruments. We recommend that Hartke amplifiers be used with Hartke bass cabinets, although other brands of speakers can be used.
        • 8. BRIDGE switch - Used to set the LH1000 to operate in Dual Parallel or Bridge modes.
        • 9. AC input - Connect the supplied standard 3-pin "IEC" plug here.
        • 10. Fuse sled - This contains a fuse holder for your Model LH1000. Make sure the voltage rating is correctly set before powering up the amplifier! Fuse ratings are 15 amp for115 vac and 7.5 amp for 230 vac.

        • 1. Handle - Two convenient metal handles make the amplifier easy to transport and easy to position while mounting in an equipment rack.
        • 2. PASSIVE Input jack - If your bass guitar has passive circuitry, connect it to the Model LH500 and LH1000 here. This standard, 1/4" unbalanced jack provides a high impedance (100 k Ohms) input sensitivity of 20 millivolts.
        • 3. ACTIVE Input jack - If your bass guitar has active circuitry,* connect it to the Model LH500 and LH1000 here. This standard, 1/4" unbalanced jack provides a high impedance (100 k Ohms) input sensitivity of 60 millivolts. * Bass guitars that have active circuitry normally require a battery for the circuitry to be functional.
        • 4. VOLUME control knob - This is the overall volume control. For best signal-to-noise ratio, keep the output of your bass at or near maximum and adjust the amp's VOLUME control to the desired level.
        • 5. BRITE LED - The indicator light will illuminate when the BRITE switch is engaged.
        • 6. BASS control knob - As part of the tone stack equalizer, the control is used to adjust the low frequency response, providing bass boost from 1 to 10.
        • 7. MID control knob - As part of the tone stack equalizer, the control is used to adjust the mid-range frequency response, providing mid boost from 1 to 10.
        • 8. TREBLE control knob - As part of the tone stack equalizer, the control is used to adjust the high frequency response, providing treble boost from 1 to 10.
        • 9. LIMITER LED - The indicator light will illuminate when the LIMITER switch is engaged.
        • 10. BALANCE control knob (LH1000 only) - This control knob adjusts the level difference between the Channel 1 and Channel 2 amplifiers. If you are using two different cabinets (for example a 115 and 410), you may want to drive one a little harder than the other to balance your sound. In the center (12:00 o'clock) position, both amplifier channels are at equal power. The BALANCE control has no effect when the LH1000 is running in bridge mode.
        • 11. DIRECT OUT - Use this electronically balanced XLR jack to route signal from the Model LH500 and LH1000 to a professional mixing console or as a tap to a main PA system via a mic input on the console. The signal output from this jack is low impedance (100 ohm) with an output level of approximately -30 to -20 dB. You can also use the Direct Out jack to route signal to an external amplifier with a -10 dB input sensitivity.
        • 12. Fan Filter - Removable sponge filter covering the amplifier's cooling tunnel vent. The Fan Filter can easy be removed and cleaned.
        • 13. BRITE switch - Use this switch to turn on the LH Series' BRITE circuit, which when engaged, adds a pre-set eq curve to enhance the bass instrument's high-end response.
        • 14. Limiter switch - This switch is used to engage the LH Series Limiter circuit. The LH Series Limiter is an automatic dynamics processors used to control the level from reaching clipping. Use the Limiter to even out the loud transients that can cause distortion. Using the Limiter will also help protect your speaker system
        • 15. Power switch - Use this to power the Model LH500 and LH1000 on or off. The internal power LED lights whenever the Model LH500 and LH1000 is powered on.
