Nyli, 28.06.2014
When i first got the mandolin i would say i was pleasantly suprised. I think the colour and finish of the body was bright, and it had a fair amount of depth.
The hardware, mainly the tuning pegs feel and look a little cheap, but they do the job. I'm sure you could upgrade these if you really wanted to.
Whilst tuning the top e strings they broke, on both Harley Benton Mandolins i have bought. I urge anyone buying one to invest in at least 2 sets of spare strings, as i think there is a high chance of strings breaking , when you first tune. If you don't you'll probably wish you did, when it does break. There are some Martin strings @ around 5 euro, so it's not going to break the bank.
I would like Thomann to ship with better strings, and just charge a couple more euro, to save hassle and time changing strings. I guess the only positive thing about the strings breaking was that it made me change strings, investigate the instrument, take off tailpiece,basically get to know the instrument more than i would have done.
I think the acoustic sound of the mandolin is pretty good. Quite woody, and sparkly, especially when the strings were changed.
The amplified tone of the instrument is again not bad. I plugged in and played into my soundcard without issue. As it's a passive pick up the gain has to be turned up lots, but that's to be expected.
Overall i would say for the price it is pretty good. I don't think it's fair to compare this to mandolins which cost 5 or 10 times as much. Of course they will be 'better'. One problem i have had with both mandolins is the tailpiece keeps falling off. It was really annoying. To solve the problem i put tailpiece on the ground, and hammered it on the edges/side, to close it up, and now it's super tight and not going anywhere.
I think if you want to try out a mandolin, and don't want to break the bank doing it, this is a good product to start with.

PROS_Cheap, not bad acoustic tone, good introduction to mandolin....
CONS_Tailpiece constantly falling off, bad strings, cheap hardware.....

Usually Harley Benton provides excellent deals. This is not the case at all. The instrument arrived in poor conditions and it was full of screws to put back in, the bridge in the wrong place, with the strings misplaced too, the pickup magnet completely dirty and unscrewed. Hard to tune for this reason so it didnt sound like anything like for the first week. Then I changed the strings for the second time ( because it came with the strings all broken) with others and it started playing decently.The fingerboard wood is really bad and the frets are not stable. All the pegs were loose and badly set. A little more care in building would have been better. for the same price I could of bought a Fender. Usually this brand is a really good deal but this instrument is mediocre for the price.
