Featuring an anodized aluminum chassis and weighing only five pounds, the TX300 is rugged, powerful and portable. This 300 watt RMS Class D amplifier provides the tonal characteristics of traditional amps, minus the backbreaking weight. A balanced XLR direct output allows connection straight into a mixer, ideal for direct recording or performance venue setups. And with a headphone output and 1/8" (3.5mm) input for playing along with your tracks, the TX300 is equally at home in practice spaces as it is in studios or on the road.The TX300's preamp offers a 3-band EQ with Hartke's Shape circuit, providing enormous control over tone. The Drive knob allows users to add a subtle warmth to their sound or crank it up to complete fuzz. The onboard compressor can be dialed-up to even out note volume, add punch to the sound and protect the speaker cabinet from the hardest of finger-popping techniques.
In Shape:The Shape control is a contour filtering system designed to enhance the sound of bass instruments. When enabled, it allows the player to continuously sweep a filter through various frequencies to customize the effect of the curve for the specific tonal characteristics of their instruments. This curve provides moderate boost at certain frequencies and deep attenuation at others.
