A Rarity... A Short-scale Lightweight, FRETLESS bass

A Rarity... A Short-scale Lightweight, FRETLESS bass

I have been playing bass guitar in a band for over 20 years and have now retired from the music scene, mainly due to arthritis in the back and wrists. I missed playing very much after selling off all my working Fender P bass collection ,so I decided to try a light, short scale bass just for amusement, which I found so much easier for my condition, once I got used to playing the shorter scale

I spent ages looking through the internet for a Fretless Short Scale bass only to find this beauty in my favourite music store, Thomann.

The Harley Benton Beat-bass Fretless bass played wonderfully, straight out of the box, even with it?s own factory fitted Flat wound strings on. It was so smooth and the intonation was perfect. Talk about weight. Light as a feather. It does give a little ?Head Dive? with a slippery strap, but if you get yourself a leather, headstock acoustic strap connector and fit the strap from the top of the neck and to the usual button on the bottom. Perfection and Comfort.

This is the perfect fretless bass for the beginner or experienced bassist wanting to learn the art of fretless playing at a ridiculously low price. I would recommend buying the Thomann Beat Bass Gig bag, product number 188608, a well under £20, made for the Beat bass fretless and standard violin bass, as you won?t find one any where else to fit as well as this one. The bonus is that the bag also fits a Squire Bronco Bass which is another short scale in my new collection, so that is one bag for two basses.

This is such a great buy for guitar players wanting to give a bass a try, as it is such a bargain.

One little tip. I tried to fit a set of D'addario flatwound strings but found that the ball ends on these were a lot bigger that the H.B. strings already fitted. After an email to Thomann, Thet set back instructions and a photo of how to loosen the tailpiece to get the correct distance to fit the D'addarios or any other strings with a bigger ball end. Great service

Just buy one. You've nothing to lose at that price

Stunningly good!

Have played bass for approaching 50 years and always tried to buy the best I could afford. But this time I decided to buy something cheap!

I expected to receive quite a shoddy instrument. But not a bit of it. It has a lovely and flawless finish. All the electrics work and there are no crackles, buzzing and the like. There are no rough bits, sharp edges, nothing missing, nothing not working. It even comes with an Allen key for the truss rod and a short guitar lead which would be fine for practicing.

To be honest it was a delight to receive and it's a delight to play. The action was nice and low straight from the box and it was pretty well in tune. I've not adjusted anything to make it play better. Apart from a tune up and a bit of time to let the instrument settle then re-tune, it could easily have been straight from the box and on stage with it. I love the sound, too: nice mwah and nice thump from the E string.

Delivery from Thomann was excellent. I ordered it Friday pm and the postman was at my door, 12pm the following Monday.

Quite simply, there aren't any negative points. My missus has asked me to help her learn bass so I might even buy another one!

One thing I should have done was buy a gig bag to go with it as this will be one of my front line basses: yes, it's that good!

Good bass for low price
Theliraan 02.08.2021
Really fun instrument with strange schematic: lows and highs switches just disabling and enabling neck and bridge pickups. So switches duplicating pots for some reason.
Neck pickup bit muddy and loud. Bridge pickup sound amazing.
Stock strings are flat wound, so fretboard stay safe.
Weight balance isn't perfect, but... it's classic for this type of instruments.

Look Honey, No Frets
Rich at the Beach 17.10.2019
It's no secret that some of us are piecing together small HB collections within our guitar collections. This is tough, because HB makes a wide selection of unique instruments and where are you going to find a short scale, fretless Beatle bass? Not at the beach, that's for sure.

It is wunderschon out of the box, and the first thing you'll notice is that the fretboard has no dots and no frets. (This is my first fretless).Initially, it's like your first time on skates, but it took only a few minutes to get the hang of it. And once you do, you can glide around with ease (there are markers on the side).

Yes, it almost has that stand up bass sound, and once you realize that you can ascend and descend with that sound, you might be cooler than you already were being a bass player and all.

Ordinarily, I wouldn't care, but I should mention that the girlfriend loves it, because it's hard not to love that sound. Whoosh! FYI, I'm playing it through a Fender Rumble, which appears to be a good match for it, no pedals.

I wouldn't hesitate to gig with it, and it weighs about 6 pounds. So, if you're building an HB collection, I'd say leave room for this dessert.
