A good beginner's amp - with a few small issues

Mr D, 16.05.2017
The 20 watts of the HB20R are more than enough to fill a room with sound; at 1/4 of the way to max, it's already too loud for bedroom jamming.

The HB20R has a good clean channel with customizable EQ settings shared with the overdriven channel; but I'd avoid the overdrive. It crunches and crumples the sound into an unintelligible mess at any noticeable gain level.

Otherwise, a nasty glitch/issue is shared between this model and it's bigger brother, the HB-40R ; plugging your phone into the dedicated backing-track aux-in port on the front panel results in terrible, terrible clicking/buzzing until you start playing a song through the connection on your device; as well as this, the sound from the aux-in is *NOT* affected by your amps' EQ, or even volume settings; I was nearly deafened when I accidentally connected it with my phone set to maximum audio on the aux cable output!

Apart from these issues, the amp does serve well on the clean channel for general practice and playing, and the EQ knobs provide clear, noticeable tonal changes to the sound emitted. Would recommend most for a beginner.

Practice amp

30.10.2015
I moved to another country and had to buy a new amp. My friend had owned HB-20 amp. So I decided to buy same model amp too. Friend had older one, so design and some features were lacking that I really wanted-like, reverb, 3.5mm aux,headphones. But in this amp. It has it all. 2 channels, SPRING reverb(you can test in while it is on, shake the amp and you will hear the spring inside). Built quality, as always for Harley Benton products, are stunning for the price. Design as well is very well made. Makes it look more expensive that it really is. Amp really accepts pedals in front of it. Clean channel on this amp is really good, just crank up reverb and enjoy full blast of clean sound. Sorry to say that it isn't that great on dirty channel. If you crank up gain more than 7 you would normally start to feel distortion, but it kinda doesn't get into that distortion field and gets you to like, really saturated overdrive, but not distortion still. It has great rock tones, but as far as metal tones go, you need to look for a pedal that will carry that. Overall, I'm very satisfied with it, for the price it's very good and will probably use as my practice amp for a long time.
