Very very good beginner bass!
Stefan aus Ü., 09.01.2014
After playing guitar for many years, and still sitting at the drums, I wanted to expand my rhythm section by a bass. Since it was only a side project, and I did not use the "murderer's bass", the choice fell after some time and recommendations in various forums on the Harley Benton PJ-4 HTR Deluxe.

Packaging:
The bass came in a "V-cardboard" well-padded, the cable works, but should be replaced as soon as a longer, better shielded cable. The V-box was then packed with air cushions in a large Thomannkarton. The bass itself has survived the transport without problems. 5 *

Appearance:
A huge plus with the bass. I unpacked it and was really amazed. It looks really high-quality. The varnishing and the pickguard harmonize perfectly with each other and create a very good overall picture. The bass is as far as I have seen, to small remnants of the milling of the pickguard ("plastic fringes") very very well processed. The few fringes at the pickup milling are still filed by me and then is good :-) 4 * because of the small defects.

Attitude:
Incredible. Although I have read in many forums that the Hotrod is not delivered well by factory, I was here again positively surprised. The strings are dreamlike - not too high, not too deep, no frills. The bass came to me and the octavrein! The neck is super playable! 5 * Here!

Features:
After removing the potentiometer once to protect the plastic foil which protects the pickguard, the pots run flawlessly. The two pickups also make their work super. The mechanics are stable and keep the mood good. Only the strings do not run directly over the polepieces of the pickups. Only 4 *

Sound:
Great for the price class! The output of the bass is slightly low, but the sound is all the better. With the P-Pickup you get a super sound - which does not sound very much after the Orignal Precision, but just super harmoniously in the band. The J-Pickup is also fantastic in my ears. The two pickups connected together are simply the hammer in this price class. 5 *

Conclusion:
Unpacked and loved! I have the HB really closed my heart. After I have the "fringes" filed away, it went directly into the band sample to test what the little is so draufhat. Our bassist did not know which "device" he had in his hand and was enthusiastically enthusiastically and estimated the bass times almost three times as expensive. The sound is really good for an entry-level instrument and you will have fun with the Hotrod both for practice and for the first banderfahrung and also beyond. I recommend only for the bass security locks and a decent belt, as well as as mentioned above directly a new cable and possibly new strings (even if the mounted their thing well.)

Never again!
O.o, 20.11.2013
So really, this bass is great as long as you do not record with it. I had to adjust the neck, then make it octavrein, just to make sure that the bass still does not sound as a bass should sound.

To make cuts in the sound was clear to me, but I get the dunging simply not octavrein.- The neck and head plate was so crooked, stood in the rain?

It is enough for rambling à la Ramones, then it stops. Have probably a really bad part caught.

The first and last time I bought HB. Was always satisfied so far, but the bass is really bad.
