Best budget bass I ever played

SemiHollowR, 11.01.2018
Everything about that bass is great - the look, the sound and the quality. I am a classical guitarist who wants to play around with different types of guitars, and this fulfills all of the requirements that I had for a budget bass. This is also my first Harley Benton guitar, and now I am sure that it will not be the last. Great value for money.

Measured at the price, the hammer!

TURBO, 25.09.2017
I needed for my DAW Homestudio a neat sounding bass, which should at least be suitable for recording song ideas, but did not want to spend a small fortune. On the advice of my kids the Vintage White variant ordered.

What I got was a full instrument for the absolute killer price. No idea how Hans Thomann can produce something like this at a quasi-free-price!

Optics:
First of all, the lacquer, even under the magnifying lamp, is absolutely flawlessly executed and also very well geschwabbelt. Since the bass stands for immediate access to a stand, I always find myself that I can simply not look at the almost mother-of-pearl shimmering white. The color looks noble. Unfortunately, the black head plate does not harmonize well, here would be matched, but, as I said, pay attention to the price!

Processing / haptics:
The components used perform absolutely flawless service, all milling runs are clean and accurate. The neck fits tightly in the holster bag, the 4 wooden screws are tightened by hand, no one is turned over, the installer understood his craft.
From the side of the Thomann setup, there is only to complain about that the jack socket was loose, which was done however in 2 minutes. The string position was very well adjusted, the intonation to 1-2 cents very clean. Since I have wounded other strings, I have adjusted myself, as well as with the neck bias. The frets are also well-dressed, but the waistband edges still require a minimal overhaul with the diamond key files, which I tackle the next string change. The slight roughness is also hardly so important. One must always remember that the bass is not a high end instrument, where hours are spent on setup, but the Thomann employee can only take a few minutes for it.

Spotting ability / Sound:
After the optimal setup, the bass is absolutely perfect and should also be against the Sandbergs, MusicMan and Yamaha of my band bassers. As a guitar player I feel the neck as a pleasant slim, for cross-countryers the bass is very suitable. The wood used resonates very well, the bass already swinging out for a long time. Sure, the head plate is attached and the body presumably also from at least 3 parts, but this is hardly noticeable here. But, at what manufacturer do you get a neck made of Hard Rock Maple and with an alder body, from American alder?

The pickups deliver an acceptable sound, active and passive, so there is no need for rework. For my consistently rather rocky songs, the bass sounds a bit more direct and rough in passive mode, while in active mode it is slightly more cultivated, with slight compression. This is very suitable for ballads. Contrary to other reviews of the basses of the B series are active and passive mode quasi same loud. I am currently using both pickups, and I quite easily overburden the bridge pickup. However, I will install a second jack socket to send the pickups in passive mode to two different amps. So I have more options in the later mix.

Conclusion:
I have never had such a positive assessment from the deepest conviction! MY instrument is just incredibly good. However, there should be a certain variance within the product line. Here helps just try out! If I use MY bass as a criterion, this gives the clearest purchase recommendation of all times on my part!
