Superb and More Than That

Dusko, 12.06.2018
This is my 8th Harley Benton acoustic guitar and amongst those there were 2 worth mentioning; the CLD-15M and the CLA-16S. Fantastic guitars for the money but not entirelly my cup of tea as I wanted lots of clarity and sustain. I went on to search for my perfect guitar in guitar shops and played all sorts of stuff from expensive Martin and Gibson to Epi, Yamaha etc ... One guitar ticked all my boxes and that was a Yamaha LL16 but it was over my budget. Been told by some that this CLD-41S is a crazy good guitar not just for the money but a "crazy good guitar" for any money, so I went ahead and bought it!

Everything from the nut to the bridge is spot on and needed no adjustemtn of any kind expect me oiling the fretbaord! Tuners perfect, no blemishes in the finish fine comfortable action, fresh D'addario strings that zing well. No fret buzz. All 5 Starts!

The most important aspect for me was that sustain on low E and A strings above the 12th fret which usually on most acoustic guitars sounds as a dead "thump" sound without sustain! This guitar has no such issues! It rings and rings! Sustain for ages!
The over all tone when you strum the guitar hard is awesome! Its as if I have used a slight compression and a slight sweet Overdrive, yet still very satin like clean tone! When strummed gentle it still projects the sound well and very clear, very pronanunced! Also when strumming close to theneck the tone does not go muddy just warmer and of course when strumming close to the bridge the treble is more pronaunced but that is never much of an issue on any acoustic guitar. Its mostly that warm tone when strummed close to the neck that I was after, that stays clear but warm, no muddiness here folks!

This guitar can growl and is very loud outdoors! It also responds well to quiet finger picking, not loosing much volume as it resonates well! No boomy/boxy tones here!

Just a great buy! Well done Harley Benton for offering such an instruments for such price so even the poor can afford it!

Shimmering sounds, beautiful depths

timado, 09.08.2018
Tested her voice (blinde test!) with my partner. Obviously, this is our subjective opinion, like the tastes are ..
In short: on the basis of our three to four-week test, in this price range is quite winner. I can not comment on the durability, because I have opened it out now. I'm not disappointed, this is a very good guitar :) If you do not want to sell it, just buy it! There are also a couple of tests available on the net, before you check it out.
