I can't fault this bass...

... I mean, we all know that an acoustic bass guitar is a bit of a compromise. The bass guitar was originally designed as an electric instrument with the acoustic bass guitar coming along later as an afterthought. Unfortunately they very seldom are able to compete with acoustic guitars in terms of volume produced. An acoustic bass needs a seriously big body to produce volume, something like the now legendary Ernie Ball Earthwood bass (look it up!) which had a MASSIVE body.

I was wanting an acoustic bass so I could play unplugged nights at my local venue. My criteria were, as big a body as possible (see above), fretless (my preference), and relatively inexpensive as my finances were limited.

The Harley Benton B-30NT-FL fit the bill beautifully. It actually seems to be almost exactly the same bass as offrered by certain other brands, with their own name on the head of course, and selling for twice as much. How true this is, I am unable to verify, just call it a suspicion.

It's lovely for practice, projecting very nicely indeed. I'm glad that it came with roundwound strings and not those nonsensical flatwounds that some manufacturers insist on putting on fretless basses and which kill the tone. A fretless bass is supposed to SING and sorry, flatwounds don't cut it. (Yes, roundwounds might mark your fingerboard if you look at it closely, but who cares, it's all about the sound, isn't it?)

Playing with other acoustic instruments, admittedly it DOES struggle volume-wise. I found I really had to work hard to pluck the strings in a manner not ordinarily best suited to nuanced fretless playing, just in an effort to be heard alongside a brace of acoustic guitars, a sax and a clarinet (with no mics and no PA). I had trouble hearing myself on stage but was told be audience members that they could hear the bass.

But as I suggested at the top, I think this is a problem endemic with acoustic bass guitars as a "species" of an instrument rather than specifically with this Harley Benton. In fact, it's much louder than most acoustic bass guitars that I have tried, and I've played quite a few over the years.

The instrument has been finished to a high quality and really is amazing value for the price. It is an excellent buy and a purchase that I am pleased I made.

not what i thought....

well what can I say, I thought for that sort of price it was going to be a bit rough.
wow, I was immediately smacked in the face by a guitar that resembled something around the 250? mark, nice, very nice.
well finished around all the edges nicely varnished and very well fitted together.
I sat for around ten minutes inspecting it hoping to find something to slap it down with... no. nothing.
145?, remember.
ok, fixed in the free 9V battery and tuned it up. nice tuner. easy to use and simple.
the marker dots are bang on where the frets would be, it was easier than I thought to play, much easier. in fact it played very well indeed.
the strings supplied seem a little to tense for it and I will consider once i've had my use out of them, using something a little lighter.
the strings lack a little sustain unplugged but plugged in seem to ring a lot longer.
the built in amp I fiddled with but kind of left it flat with a just a touch of bass to give it a bit of ummph.. it doesn't want to be tinny and clicky, its acoustic.
remember its not solid wood so it needs a little more sole pushed into it to provide something like the kind of output you get from a full e'bass. but even then it still has a sound of its own.
the fret board is very nice, a bit of lemon oil to loose a bit of the factory dried finish and she feels a little more alive...
the body is naturally fuller than an e'bass but you do get used to it. rib digging at first, you learn to sit with it.
I found genuinely it had an influence on the way I played and could quite easily inspire a different technique and feel.
ok its not a warwick alien, but its a far cry from being unfamiliar...ha, get it! no? whatever,
in short, its a bloody nice bass for a very very small amount of money, especially in the acoustic sector...
lets see if it stands the test of time.....
bummer, I had to sand down the top of the fret board around the G area because of a high spot. cured it after a couple of hours work. also found the E'string sounding much lower in volume than the other strings. :-(
new pickup to be added....

Great bass guitar, for the money you can't beat it! I have played a Steinberger bass professionally for years and know what a good bass is.

The strings are okay, but if you want it to sound great, then put a set of Fender Light Flat Wound Strings on it. I notice that the Flat Wounds project just as much volume as the strings that come with it, but with a much more mellow and bright tone, and they feel real nice on the fingers, too when you are doing slides.

The fret board could be a little smoother, but that's an easy fix, with some fine sandpaper, and some good fret oil - then you're good to go!

The pick-up is pretty good, especially for the price. And, the tuner works awesome!

The quality of wood used on the top could be a little higher, but for the price, it's great! The overall quality I would rate as 5 stars, if it had a spruce top with fewer imperfections. The spruce top is laminate.

The action adjusts very well, and is very good, with no buzzes on the fret board.

It stays in tune very well, and overall is a great bass guitar! You will be very happy with this bass! I would say comparable bass guitars, here in the United States, would cost 3 times the price of this one. And by the way, the shipping and service is great and fast. I got this guitar in 10 days, delivered to Utah, USA. And the shipping price is very reasonable.

Good and less good... But great in the end!

I am an experienced musician, playing guitar, bass, double bass, keyboards, drums, percussion and then some, all this since over 40 years. (I also work...) I currently own 4 basses, electric fretted and fretless, acoustic fretted and this new fretless.
This bass sounds very well and is very playable. I replaced the round wound brass strings with flat wounds, and wanted to replace these with black nylon tape strings, which would certainly have given a great sound. I also gave the fingerboard a shine with steel wool and oil, but this is something I do on every guitar or base. The strings are set a little higher, to suit my playing style, the truss rod was tightened accordingly.
It looks good, too, quite elegant, simple.
The electronics feature a 4-band EQ, plus presence, built-in tuner, master volume and phase inversion switch. The output offers both a standard jack and a balanced XLR, which is very rare on any guitar or bass. Great feature, as it dispenses of a DI box.
On the downside, I have experienced following problems: when I received the bass, the low E tuner was not working. A replacement was sent within a few days, great service - I was offered to return the instrument, but this seemed easier.
The electronics are quite noisy, I was planning to check and improve this, but then I noticed a crack in the bridge. I then regretfully decided to return the bass. I can only hope this is not a recurring problem. A week after returning the bass, UPS rang my door, and delivered a box from Thomann.
I have received a brand new bass in replacement. It seems the electronics are much less noisy, and the bridge looks better too.
This fretless acoustic bass is a bargain, I rate it higher than the price could ever suggest.

Perfect low cost all-round bass!

For such a low price, I did not expect a lot from this bass. I assumed it'd make a great practice instrument and nothing more.

However, I was VERY wrong.

Upon receiving the bass, the first thing I noticed was the exceptional quality gloss finish. All of the joints were cut for a tight (but not stressed) fit, the build quality and factory set-up was superb and after a quick tune was ready to play straight out of the box!

The acoustic sound is a rich blend of mids, with a low end that's just enough to cut through the sounds of a guitar. Generally the sustain is excellent, until you pass the 12th fret, in which it tends to drop off rather noticeably. The pick-up is not the greatest money can buy, but the built-in EQ lets you roughly dial in the tone you need very quickly. The tuner is fast and accurate!

I would recommend this bass to beginners and advanced players looking for a new toy!
