Kick Back 120watts bass amplifier. Excellent condition. No power cord. Sorry, cat fur on top.No extra time to clean...very busy TY for looking.

Among rock musicians, bass players have always had the simplest choice when it comes to gear: buy a Fender Precision and a “refrigerator” (Ampeg SVT recommended), plug the former into the latter and start shaking the foundations of every house on the block. While this setup should last you the rest of your career, it has two distinct faults: one, at least two people are required to lift and carry the amp; and two, that big-ass ‘fridge sure as hell won’t fit in a compact car (or a taxi for that matter).
Enter the year 1999 Hartke’s Kickback series of portable and affordable bass combos. Built to be roadworthy, the Kickback HS 1200 packs a 120-watt amp and a 12-inch aluminum-core speaker into a 43-pound cabinet, along with all the fixin’s: three-band tone control, passive/active input jack, headphone jack, XLR and 1/4 –inch outputs. And a Shape control that allows sweepable equalization. (The Kickback was also available with one 10-inch or 15-inch speaker).
Like all Hartkes, the Kickback has a full-bodies tone that is punchy and very present. While many bass amps offer a rather limited eq range, the Kickback’s tone controls have a broad sweep, giving you plenty of room in which to carve out your own sound. The tilt-back cabinet design allows for a directional clarity, a feature that is particularly useful on tight stages and in small rehearsal room
