Amazing bass for a more amazing price
RT Slinger , 10.04.2019
To start my name is Rob aka RT Slinger a bass player of over 50 years.
I was watching a video and someone was reviewing this Harley Benton B-450 Progressive 4 string.
Now I have many brands of bass guitar in my collection of 17, but this one had some about the tone that really grabbed me.
So I contacted Thomann through this website and purchase the bass. Shipping to the US went smoothly no delays and the bass was in great shape when it arrived. I didn't need to do any set up it was great and no dead spots on the neck.
That tone I heard on the video was right there in my hands. I gig with the bass that same weekend and my band mates told me "just leave your other basses home", because of how well in set in the mix. The pros are many but the best is having a active bass that when the battery dies you can still use it in passive mode. Cons I truly haven't found anything that is wrong with this bass and I have held many, many bass in my 50 years of playing. Amazing job and I would and have told everyone what a great bass this is.
Thanks for a top quality bass at a incredibly affordable price point

Excellent Value for Money
Eggos, 07.12.2017
Excellent budget bass. So many features for this price point. Low action, smooth skinny neck, and very comfortable to hold. My biggest gripe is the positioning of the humbuckers. Whatever way I play, the humbuckers tend to get in my way but that's more of a personal issue. They sound quite good. A lot of tonal possibilities, especially with the added active circuitry that requires a battery to operate but can be used in passive mode too. The bass I received was an off white cream colour, almost as if it's been naturally aged over time. It's got that vintage look you might find if you opened a guitar case in your uncles attic and found a guitar. I think the strings are Harley Benton's own brand and honestly, they sound great out of the box with that lovely brand new steel string sound that I love but their longevity is compromised as that lovely sound dissipated very quickly and became dull sounding, which might be down your alley but I prefer a brighter sound. All electronics work fine, and the bass didn't need a set up right out of the box. Fretwork seems good, no visible blemishes which is pretty amazing at this price range. Came well packaged and delivery was quick, with tracking provided.

A+ Thomann and Harley Benton!
