Jan-Willem Bullee (also a Hevos user) took this awesome picture during the SixStringSession XL at the Oude Luxor Theater in Rotterdam. in the picture bassist Martin Bakker with (four string) bass and his Hevos Midget10 combo.

Midget10 bass stack

This is the Hevos Midget10 stack: Midget10 combo (12.6 kgs) and Midget10 cabinet (9.1 kgs). The total stack is only 80 cms high.

Both the Midget10 combo and the Midget10 cabinet are equipped with a superb 10″ bass-mid loudspeaker (AES power handling 400 Watts). The dynamic slottweeter in the combo adds that filigran edge to your bass sound. The combo is powered by the Hevos 400C combo amplifier of 400 Watts. The amp has 2 separated inputs and a Class D power amp. It is completely noiseless, ideal for studio use.

German magazine Gitarre& Bass wrote: It is just magic what Hevos did when they designed the Midget, and it deserves respect! Because not only does this powerful and ultra compact combo produce high sound levels, but it does so with tight basses and extreme pure and differentiated. And with the additional cabinet one has enough power even for the hard and solid band sound levels. And it all comes out of one of the most manageable and transportable bass stacks there is. As far as the sound quality is concerned, this Hevos combination is top class, no doubt about that. “

Thor15

Hevos Thor15 combo: 15″ bass-mid loudspeaker and dynamic slottweeter, with 400 Watt amplifier. Only 54 cms high, a weight of 15.8 kgs and a perfect sound. For bassists who prefer a stand-alone cabinet. Also available as a single loudspeaker cabinet (weight 14.3 kg).

Editor Leif Bendt of the German magazine BassQuarterly concluded: “Only a few companies succeed in realizing their ideas about bass amplification in such an accurate and perfect way. Hevos belongs to that little circle for many years now, which once more is proved impressively with this Thor15 bass combo. Regardless of whether you play bass guitar or double bass, jazz, rock, or fusion, this Hevos convinces. Only when you play metal I would recommend to connect an extra cabinet to use maximum power of 400 Watts. For all other music styles, the Thor15 is superior by itself. Bravo!”

2×6 combo and cabinet

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hevos smallest combo and cabinet. Built-in high end 400W amplifier. Dimensions hxwxd : 44x23x32 cm. Weight: 10.3 kgs (combo), 8.7 kgs (extra cabinet).

Is it possible to reproduce a wonderful and mature bass sound with 6″ loudspeakers? Despite the very small 6” loudspeakers it offers an astonishing bass reproduction. The sound is great, it is unbelievable that these Hevos 6” loudspeakers can reproduce bass sound so well.

Gitarre&Bass review: “It is simply amazing what a full detailed and rich bass sound Hevos gets out of these small 6 inch loudspeakers. But if one takes a closer look at the powerful special loudspeakers and the very solid construction of the housing, it becomes clear that it’s not magic but rather robust physics that leads to such results. All the more since the high-quality 400C combo amplifier has lots of power available.”
