A wide flat, frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz and ability to handle sounds up to 130dB SPL, the SE10x delivers clean and articulate audio reproduction.

Designed for speaking and singing, the SE50x features an omnidirectional pickup pattern and a 2.5mm micro-miniature mic capsule that captures sound equally from all directions with no proximity effect or off axis-coloration.

Hartke LX8500 and the LX5500 Bass Amplifiers

These Class D amplifiers weigh under nine pounds, produce 800-watts and 500-watts of real continuous power and are paired with a rich sounding, tube-driven preamp with Hartke tone stack EQ. Supported by an extraordinary amount of power, the LX series amps feature a Class A tube preamp that responds dynamically to any playing technique or instrument. The Hartke Tone Stack EQ section is tailored to the bass guitar and provides players the ability to dial in a variety of tones for any genre. Shape and Frequency knobs provide detailed control of critical midrange frequencies and familiar Bass and Treble controls allow players to sculpt a distinctive modern or vintage tone. The Brite button boosts high frequencies to bring out the top-end shimmer of the bass and highlight natural harmonic overtones.
