I bought this because I needed a cheap bass for practice and noodling at the office. My only demands was that it should be cheap so I don't have to shed any tears if it gets stolen, and that it should be playable.

I was rather surprised when I opened the box and found a very decent bass indeed. All the parts are, of course, the cheapest possible. The chrome hardware is a bit uneven, pots are those cheap split shaft versions, the pickguard is a bit rough around the edges, but everything is right in the places where it really matters. The neck is straight, the frets are even and the fret ends are very smooth. The pickups sound good without any hiss or hum. The bass is very light, I'm fairly certain it weighs in at less than 4 kg.

One other good thing wa the factory setup. It came with a fairly low action and good intonation. It was even pretty much in tune out of the box. These things don't really matter in the long run, of course, but considering it's an entry level instrument, and most buyers probably don't know how to setup a bass, it's nice to know this is done properly.

I can recommend this bass to anyone seeking a backup bass, or even a main player if you're low on cash. This can easily play in the same league as a Squier, and for a fraction of the price.

To set the scene I am predominantly a lead guitarist having played for the last 27 years...wow I feel old! I occasionally fill in playing bass with friends bands when the occasion arises. I generally borrowed friends basses however the time came when I wanted a bass for myself so came to the ever reliable Thomann to see what they had within the budget I had.
I like p style basses so when I found the PB-20 I had to give it a go. The bass arrived extremely quickly well packed and had remarkable playability straight from the box. A very light adjustment to suit my playing style and I was away. The bass is fairly light but it still has the right weight ratio to prevent the neck diving to the floor.
The neck was finished well with no sharp fret ends, Frets were properly dressed and sat at a really playable height. Now the sound of the bass is the most impressive aspect. Punchy doesn't quite do the bass justice Thumping is more appropriate . I have to add I did put a thicker set of strings on the bass but I was knocked back by the hot sounding pickups. I was able to achieve that classic P sound with ease . I put the bass into my friends bass amp head through a 4x12 cabinet and he was bowled over at the shear rumble the bass produced. I have played the bass over a handful of gigs and really remain totally impressed .I cant think of anything bad to say given the price.
I cant recommend this bass enough to a student moving up from a 3/4 size bass or starting out or perhaps somebody looking for a reliable and easy playing instrument , you really need not too look any further!

Excellent for the money

I bought this bass purely because I needed one for home recording. I had no intention of doing anything other than laying down bass tracks, so didn't want to spend a lot of money.

Rather than spending ages searching the second hand market, I decided to "take a risk" on one of Thomann's own-brand cheap basses. I'm really glad that I did as not only did it exceed my expectations, it made me realise just how good "cheap" guitars can be.

On arrival, the setup and intonation were fine, as was the fit and finish. The only slight criticism was that the frets were slightly rougher at the edge than I'm used to, but I've seen worse on guitars costing three or four times as much.

The sound is that of a P-bass, which is exactly what I wanted. The tone pot has a fairly good range. Sounds great going through my Focusrite audio interface into Guitar Rig.

I don't doubt for a moment that a more expensive guitar from a name brand manufacturer would feel and play better, but for the money this is an utterly fantastic product and I'd wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap workhorse.

Not only for beginners

The Harley Benton PB 20 BK standard was actually only purchased as just for fun tool.
I just wanted to try in playing bass. So I quickly ordered one and after only 28 hours of the bass was delivered. Very well done Thomann!

I expected not to much for the money but it was a big surprise on the unpacking. The bass looks absolutely amazing and is very well made. The string action is set very well, the frets are well polished and he is very easy to play on immediately. It depends very balanced on the strap and is not top-heavy.
So the Bassplayer of our Band should try the Harley Benton PB-20.
The biggest surprise came on the amplifier.
A very nice growling assertive bass sound has no need to hide from much more expensive instruments.

Really great bass not only interesting for beginners.

Very good sound
