harley benton B-550LH Super bass

25.02.2017
the choice for l/handed bass players is often limited, but this item is nothing less than remarkable, especially for the money; a smooth neck, with no sharp bits to tear your fingers
all set up for you, exactly in tune at the 12th fret, a brilliant active pre-amp, all nice and quiet, and a stunning finish, the neck has super accurate tuners, not sloppy, easy to tune, it just sat on my lap, like a sweet baby, eager to be played, no buzzes, just sheer fun, I am still getting used to it, and every time it comes out of its case, I smile, best value for money I think I have ever bought, well done musikhouse thomann, yet again you have served the musicians more then well

No better deal for the price

09.04.2017
Let me preface this by saying I'm more of a guitarist than a bass player, but here are my thoughts on the B-550:

I bought this bass because I needed a 5-string to finish recording some songs in lower tunings. I needed it cheap, and I needed it quick and as always Thomann delivered just what I needed. It might not be the best Bass I've ever played, but for the price, it vastly exceeded my expectations.

Pros:
- Having 24 frets is always nice. Seeing as we're extending the range lower, why not extend it higher too. Smart thinking.

- Amazingly, this bass is lighter than my 4-string. If you're a gigging musician, this is a huge bonus.

- It's well-built and feels very nice to play

Cons:

- Very minor fret buzz on the 3rd fret (Should be easy enough to fix with some TLC)

- The push/pull pot on mine doesn't seem to work. I'm getting nasty electrical noise and very low volume signal on one setting (I don't particularly mind though, I don't really need this feature)

All in all, I can't complain. I have some minor nitpicks but overall I'm very happy with my new bass. Thanks Thomann!
