Huw., 16.03.2020
JB20 CA Bass.

This bass guitar is an impressively assembled instrument.
The range of authentic Jazz Bass tones are all there for the finding.
It's appearance and quality of finish is also a delight.
The bass handles well and came perfectly set-up.
The minor adjustments made for personal preferences were easily made.
An ideal instrument from beginner through to intermediate use.
And also a go-to bass for all other music making.
Many of Thomann' s customers who have commented on product value for money are correct to do so, and the JB 20 CA bass is certainly no exception.
It joins the JB 20 Sunburst Bass previously purchased, to which Flat Wound Strings are now fitted. This also gives a good performing instrument.
After many years of listening to my eldest son practising bass for his gigs, I picked up an old Westone Thunderer1A bass he had left with me on leaving home. I now spend happy hours, making the same noises he used to, and have my own collection of basses from which to choose.
Thomann' s is always my preference for any items I need to follow my retirement interests..

Wahnsinn!
Tolique, 25.05.2020
Verarbeitung, Sound, Saitenlage, ... und natürlich der Preis! Was Thomann hier für 99,- € bietet ist der absolute Hammer. Ein wunderschöner Bass!!! ... der ausgepackt wird, einen Gurt und ein Kabel verpasst bekommt und... einfach gut klingt!!! Übrigens ohne einen Millimeter nachzustimmen. Es ist eine wahre Freude! Der Hersteller dieser Harley Benton ist mit Abstand der Meister in perfekter Symbiose von Qualität und Preis/Leistung. Das habe ich bereits bei einer Strat-Kopie von 2006 festgestellt. Wenn man übrigens den Hersteller (in diesem Fall aus Indonesien) googelt... Name steht auf dem Prüfschild... und wird hier nicht verraten;) sieht schnell, dass auch Kunden wie Fender USA und Yamaha Kanada dort produzieren lassen. Schöne (in diesem Fall wirklich!) neue, globale Welt! Habe mir die Strat ebenfalls in Candy Apple Red sofort dazu bestellt und freue mich drauf... auch wenn?s mal ein paar Wochen dauert. Es lohnt sich!!! Vielen Dank an alle "Thomänner"!

Precioso y apto para varios estilos musicales.
Serjx93, 24.10.2020
Soy guitarrista y me picó el gusanillo por el bajo, así que me vine a Thomman, ordene bajos por precio más barato, y compré este.

Llevo tocándolo ya 5 meses y estoy gratamente satisfecho.
Este bajo de marca Harley Benton, tiene una construcción casi impecable, quitando algún pequeño detalle, para un instrumento de este precio.
El sonido es realmente bueno, lo he probado en varias afinaciones, y en aquellas mas graves puede haber algo de trasteo, cosa que veo normal y se puede solucionar con unos pequeños ajustes, además la afinación en todo este tiempo se ha mantenido firme.

En cuanto al aspecto, me parece precioso, el acabado en color "Candy Apple", con ese rojo metálico, le queda "que ni pintado".

Por ponerle alguna pega, diré que pesa un poco más de lo que esperaba (aunque era de esperar).

En resumen : estamos ante un instrumento cuya relación calidad precio está a un nivel muy alto. Dudo que en el mercado encuentres algo mejor por este dinero, ya que es un instrumento que para su coste, puede hacerte un papel muy pero que muy digno.

150% Satisfecho
Guerreros, 24.05.2020
Atención al cliente: El seguimiento de la compra fue excelente, fácil y legal. Vivo en Tenerife y cualquier compra inferior a 150 esta libre de impuestos. El proceso de ajuste de precio fue automático y sin problemas en aduanas. El paquete llego al tiempo previsto con entrega en mano.

Embalaje: Una caja con lo suficiente como para que el producto llegue bien.

Instrumento: La realidad supera la expectativa, la calidad de acabado y comparable con cualquier instrumento de gama superior, pero lo increible es que el sonido es practicamente el de instrumentos de alta gama y su consturccion esta hecha al detalle, es sin duda la mejor relacion Precio/Valor/Garantia/disponibilidad que se puede esperar y viniendo de nuestra casa favorita Thomann.

Estoy sumamente satisfecho y entusiasmado con mis próximas compras, serán una Tele y una 2Cut (PRS) Harley Benton!!!
