Best Semi Acoustic Electric Upright Bass

brunomaiajazzbass, 05.05.2017
The best cost/benefit in the market.
Pros:
Good wood craftsmanship and design. It has a hollow body, spuce top and back, maple sides and neck, which produces a surprising tone.
The hollow body gives a sense of semi acoustic sound, and makes the instrument lighter.
It comes with a taylored bag, which would otherwise be a hasstle to find in the after-market. (closest alternatice would be long double snow ski bag, very expensive).
Adjustable bridge.
Cons:
The stock Tuning machines will break at first bump. Strongly advise buying replacements at Thomann.
You will eventually feel the need to take it to a luthier shop to lower action, if you do not know how to sand the fingerboard yourself and get the set up necessary in order to play it professionally.
The tail will need muffling. spare some old black sock and black tape...
Overall is a great and easy to carry instrument. I really like Harley Benton Quality. I recommend this bass for students as well as professionals. (30 years experience)

Good, but may need some adjusting

alib8, 16.07.2017
I use this bass for gigging, and it seems well built and high quality. The neck and fingerboard are very nice, well planed.

Bridge looks a little weak but does its job. You will probably have to take time to experiment with bridge/piezo placement and maybe add some dampening material under and/or over the piezo. Soft wood, rubber, etc.

Any kind of strings on this bass compared to a regular acoustic upright bass feels more stiff, most likely because of the more rigid body. I could not find a remedy for this, so I chose to use very low tension nylon strings. High tension steel strings like that come with the bass feel like they are choking the piezo with too much pressure.

The instrument is as heavy as an acoustic upright bass, and the high center of gravity puts more weight on your left hand. The side bracket needs modification(depth) to become useful, otherwise it is not comfortable.

It is not very easy to carry because of the weight and needs some tweaking to make playable but otherwise very solid.
