eddyperso's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Unbeatable quality / price!"

Harley Benton HB-40B
40W bass amp designed to work at home, but also to rpeter used in concerts.
(Bass, mid, treble) very simple but effective settings
Double entry! Unheard of in this price range. Great to connect 2 instruments (keyboard and microphone are working perfectly).
Headphone input.


Extremely simple configuration.
Manuel clear but totally dispensable.
You plug and go!


I play jazz, funk and blues and this amp is perfect.
Also suitable for rock, without worry.
A palette of sounds quite varied depending on the settings are obtained.
I plug it essentially my Fender electric bass but also a keyboard or microphone simultaneously as needed.


I use it for more than a month non stop. RPET alone, repeated group and concerts.
Value simply UNBEATABLE price! 98 € there was nothing better.
Note the existence of a lighter 20W but really too low noise power and less precise. IL also saturates very quickly. I bought it at the beginning and then quickly exchanged against the 40W.
If it again, I would do it again.
Moreover, it is very robust. A good point because I carry everywhere.

Harley Benton HB-40B
Bass Combo Transistor, 40W, Speaker 10 inches.
2 inputs, headphone jack, line-out (Jack, no DI output).
4-band EQ.

In short, it's pretty classic ...


Simple to use, SAR of that side. So there by


cons, side tone is, er ... how to say ... if I just "ugly" is ok?

Good at the same time, for this award need to dream ... but this is really ***. ch

I think it comes mainly from HP, although the receiver must not be very famous either ... when the EQ, Well it does not catch the shot, so by tinkering with the buttons, there is a choice between sound lousy that "buzz" sound ugly without depth, without dynamic sound ugly, ugly even saturation not on purpose, or its cavernous ugly ...


I used it a few times, but if it is to train, the sound is better through headphones. So I quickly changed when I started playing in groups.
If it's to play again, it can happen if you simply sounds ugly and if your buddies do not play too hard (otherwise it will be just power level).
on the other hand to play on stage is better to forget.

In addition it is not especially light for a compact or low-power combo.

In short, for 90 € is wasted: either you just want a small amp to drive home, and here I think it is better to take a 10 - 20W, but the sounds a little better (or even play with headphones) or you want to play in groups and then it is better to invest a little more.
