This video from Ted Brown Music shows Megadeth Bassist David Ellefson speaking at a bass clinic. In the right of the video, he has his Hartke LH1000 sitting on top of his Hartke 810 Cabinet. [Geargods.net Interview](http://geargods.net/rigged/david-ellefson-talks-metal-masters-rig-fan-letter-changed-megadeths-history/) "When did you switch to those? Didn’t you use [Ampeg] SVTs? I started with Hartke very early on. I actually started using Hartke cabinets on the Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying? tour. They did not have heads at that time, so I used another manufacturer’s head, but I used their aluminum cone 4X10 speaker cabinets on about midway through the Peace Sells… tour. I then recorded So Far, So Good…So What!, Rust in Peace and Countdown to Extinction using all Hartke cabinets. That really helped me define my tone with the Jackson basses into the Hartke systems. There were a couple of years where I used some other stuff, but returning back to when we did the Megadeth 20th anniversary Rust in Peace tour in 2010 was when I came back to Hartke. We wanted to recreate the look, the sound and feel of that Rust in Peace era. Hartke has now improved their products and, as time will do, innovations and technologies improve which help improve the end product. So the Hartke stuff just sits right in the mix with Megadeth. I really feel that the new Hartke stuff that I’m sitting right inside Shawn’s kick drum."more
