Parfait pour s'entraîner mais instable
Laurent_v, 20.03.2020
Il est arrivé ce beau violoncelle électrique avec sa housse de qualité et son archet. Mais... ni manuel, ni la moindre idée pour fixer le chevalet. Même pas une bête feuille A4.

Il a fallu chercher soi-même, bien se creuser les méninges et essayer également de comprendre comment fixer les supports en plastique.
Sauf que ces "excroissances" là c'est très insuffisant pour bien caler le violon contre soi. Il faut le tenir un peu en biais entre genou et mollets pour que ça tienne enfin. Le plastique de plus est trop mou, et le violoncelle a vite fait de sautiller entre vos jambes.

Le son est convaincant mais la différence du "rendu sonore" entre les différentes cordes fait qu'on a tendance à privilégier une seule corde pour les parties en legato quitte à bouger beaucoup avec sa main gauche. Ce qui n'est pas souhaitable.

On aurait donc aimé un instrument un peu plus harmonieux, mieux calé contre soi et surtout quelques explications.

Preis und Design sind unschlagbar, aber...
CellistIna, 16.09.2019
...beim ersten Versuch, gleich nachdem ich von dem ansprechenden Korpus und dem "Haltegefühl" positiv überrascht war, ist beim vorsichtigen Stimmen der ersten Saite die Saite gerissen. Das ist mir zwar in 12 Jahren nie passiert, wäre aber kein Thema, da man als Musiker ohnehin seine eigenen Saiten-Vorlieben hat - allerdings halten die Wirbel die Saitenspannung nicht aus! (die D-Saite riss dann zwar nicht, drehte sich aber sogleich nach und hielt nicht.)

Das zweite gleich merkliche Manko: die Farbe des Birkengriffbretts färbt ab, so hat man innerhalb kurzer Zeit schwarze Fingerkuppen.

Ein weiteres, ähnliches "Schönheits"-Manko ist, dass der Korpus des weißen Modells eigenartige blau und braun verfärbte Flecken aufwies, die mit einem trockenen Tuch nicht zu entfernen waren.

Last but not least: Der AUX (Kopfhörer) Ausgang funktionierte nicht.

Fazit: Selbst bei unschlagbarem Preis und wirklich ansprechendem Design kann ich das Harley Benton HBCE 990WH Electric Cello aufgrund der aufgezählten Mankos (ausgenommen des "Schönheits"-Mankos) leider nicht weiterempfehlen. Weder (halbwegs) professionellen Musikern (wie mir, die es für Solo- und Bandauftritte nutzen wollen), noch Anfängern.

Buon rapporto qualità prezzo ma non pronto all'uso
Alessio Al., 14.10.2020
Sono un neofita, ma mi son accorto immediatamente che il violoncello non teneva in alcun modo l'accordatura (si son stuccate due corde provando a forzare).
Son stato da Cherubini, un noto negozio di strumenti musicali di Roma, dove mi han messo delle corde di buona qualità, che sono state la spesa maggiore, ed hanno lavorato bischeri e piroli per tenere l'accordatura.
Ha un buon rapporto qualità/prezzo, ma necessiterebbe di un'ulteriore sgrezzata prima della spedizione. Ed è consigliabile cambiare le corde di serie appena possibile.
