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.!!

Amazing Bass-Totally Blown Away

20.02.2017
I bought this bass as it looked pretty cool and had great features and was totally blown away when it arrived. The craftsmanship is excellent, the hardware solid and sturdy and the pickups sound great.

The active circuit and frequency boosters/cutters mean you can get a plethora of sounds from this one unit, it is very versatile and the volume boost is great.

The knobs have a satisfying "click" (not audible, you can feel it when you turn them) at the halfway point so you know at that point you have a neutral boost/cut. Very useful and a nice little touch!

Fretwork is immaculate and finished to a higher quality on guitars I have that cost 4 or 5 times the price. Thomann have really set this thing up well.

I also have an acoustic guitar from Harley Benton that is phenomenal, I am going to buy an electric guitar from Harley Benton soon and if that blows me away like the acoustic and the bass did I will really see no point in buying any other brand until you get above maybe £5-600 price point. The quality of these instruments are that good.

The quality of Harley Benton destroys anything in the equivalent price bracket and most things in a muchhigher price point. Guitars at 3,4 or 5 times the price aren't a good as these.
