The Best Buy In the Lower Priced Bass Guitars section
Raymond588, 24.05.2016
I ordered this Harley Benton B-450 QTB bass guitar on the Thursday evening and I received it on the Tuesday morning. That is just 3 working days from Thomann in Germany to my home in the UK. You could not get any better service if you ordered from one of the large stores in Britain.
Not only can I find any fault what so ever with Thomann service, which I was kept updated by email daily, the quality of the bass guitar was fantastic. Active twin humbucker pickups with active preamp that sounds terrific.
One thing I have not seen on an inexpensive active bass before is the push-pull switch with turns the active pickups to passive ones if your battery should fail during a gig. Very useful.
The black quilted finish looks amazing and the smart black control knobs set the bass to the top of the class.
I bought this bass to act as a spare to my Burns Bass whilst gigging but I would not hesitate to use it as my main guitar.
The sounds that come out of this bass are wonderful. Deep bass tones to high treble tones at the turn of two knobs.
I'm sorry but I can not find any negative points with this bass, apart from the fact that I have changed the original strings to Flat-wound Fenders, but that is my preference.
If you are looking for a reliable cheap bass that is playable straight out of the box and with the famous Thomann back-up and service, then do not hesitate. Buy one.

This benton is a contender for the big boys!
Graham8763, 21.12.2014
We have been used to many bass guitars working in our studio and live on stage and also had some budget gear come along with bad results, to our surprise this benton has proved itself to be a big contender when it comes to live on stage, it had its debut on a main stage this week and it blew us away.. very strong presence and good solid feel, very handy if the battery goes flat just hit the coil tap and your good to go passive and carry on, nice idea . In the studio too it has good definitive presence on tape and doesnt lose TONE up the scale it beat a yamaha and a rickenbacker we had at the time, this bass was perfect for songs we had in mind.. good all round bass and a lot of bass for the money.!!
