Just the bass amp I needed!
Walt P 15.02.2021
I needed a light weight yet powerful bass amp to take with me to practices and jam sessions at various places, and tried the Harley Benton Block 300B. It was a perfect choice. It is powerful enough to compete with the loudest drummers and guitarists, easy to carry, and has the features that make it adaptable to any situation I have faced.
The 5-band equalization works well, and as a bonus, is switchable on-off for when a pure sound is needed. The direct out does what it is supposed to do without issues.
As always, Thomann Music arranged for quick and secure delivery.
I definitely would order this unit again if looking for a transportable, powerful bass amp.

Exactly what it says on the tin!
Alan, UK 18.10.2022
I bought this amp with one objective in mind; to make my bass louder!
It does that, and just that. This is great for me because I can then just crack on and play. I have this for home use and I have not played live, it's just for me. I like the no frills presentation as it is easy to use. I think that I would prefer pots on the front rather than slider based GEQ but that is a minor niggle for me as prefer to switch the eq off.
That is actually the feature that convinced me to buy the amp. I have a preamp pedal and I like to use that for tone shaping so being able to use the amp as a power amp is perfect for my needs.
The input jack has a switch to pad a high output or active signal, and the front panel also has mini jacks for headphones and aux input and so is an invaluable practice tool. It weighs next to nothing and so in the event that I do start playing in a band it will be easy to transport.
The back panel has DI, speakon/jack speaker output and the power switch (and voltage selector). It's all very easy to use.
Mine is paired with a Hartke HD112 cabinet and I do not regret my purchase at all. I would recommend this amp especially if you are looking for an amp-cab setup and you want to get a more expensive cabinet.
My only other criticism is that I occasionally hear crackling from the aux in, this could be attributed to the cable though.
Again, I am very happy with my purchase and would (indeed I may) do so again.

Kleines lautes Kraftpaket mit Lüftergeräusch
cf_bass 24.08.2021
Meine Konfig: TecAmp112 und Aguilar112 mit Sandberg und AriaProII Bässen. Alle passiv. Ich habe den block gekauft, um zu Hause zu üben.
Im ersten Eindruck: kleiner, guter Verstärker. stabil verarbeitet. Alle Bedienelemente sind gut erreichbar und laufen flüssig. Der Sound ist in 0-Stellung aller Regler leider etwas wenig brilliant/Jazzig-analytisch (insbesondere bei der TecAmp-Box merkt man das).

PRO: Endstufe arbeitet sauber, wenn auch etwas wenig höhenaffin - das kann aber auch an der Vorstufe liegen.
Gut verarbeitetes Gehäuse, EQ greift gut, Preis.

CONTRA: Schieberegler (EQ) haben keine rast-Mittenstellung - das ist lästig, aber kein Ausschlusskriterium,
Effektweg fehlt (das hatte ich in der Beschreibung wohl übersehen).
Daher gibt es keinen direkten Zugriff auf die Endstufe (das wäre der "return"-Kanal).
Für mich entscheidend: Der Lüfter ist sehr laut und scheint mir ungeregelt. Auf der Bühne sicher kein Problem, aber in leisen Passagen deutlich vernehmbar.
Und der zweite Malus: nach dem Ausschalten läuft der Verstärker noch 1-2 Sek. nach und am Ende macht es macht es deutlich "WUPP" - so wie in den alten Endstufen aus den 80ern.

Alles in Allem keine wirklichen Probleme und ein hervorragender Startpunkt fürs Moddding (Lüfter, Endstufe "freilegen", Buchsen tauschen etc.).
Vielleicht muss er aber doch zurück.
