It's a fretless bass 6 strings, blue ribbed, also available in red.
Harper brand is not directly accessible on the Internet is distributed by a Chinese importer which has several small marks.
I'm no expert, but I will make an objective description of this bass.
The bridge to the air sound, with adjustable height, length and spacing of the strings.
The handle is attached by 4 Phillips screws provided with washers, it's clean and solid. This race is fairly flat and easy to hold, not to cramp. The varnish can easily slip on.
The key is very dark wood, strings leave a footprint in the most used, but there is room before making chips.
Freight pins do not exist, only a few white dots are inlaid in the side of the button, this finish is not very successful, I would have done better with the "blanco" ...
The nut must be plastic imitation wood, not great.
The keys are in an oil bath, and play in the gears! Fortunately they are tuning.
The original microphone type are single coil I think format 114x38 and poor quality. If the SI is poor, others are not rich. We hear the difference between the neck and bridge, it still manages to play with. 1 volume and 1 tone with mic, that's all.
I quickly changed the wiring (which was clean), faradised space of knobs and the back of the plate, a micro volume, 1 tone, 1 master volume. The idea is to make a balance between the microphones and adjust the volume without touching the balance.Plus place to get a sound.
To finish with these pickups, I just replace them with a kit CREL JBMorph ... See opinion on it ...
This bass is pretty heavy (5.5kg), it is a good strap and strap-lock. on the other hand, it is balanced.
Seen together, it's a nice product to begin with.
The handle is easy to play, the string height is adjustable, it does not frieze, the handle is adjustable, I have not touched. Its previous owner (a guitar teacher) had settled and adjusted as the harmonics. She did not move.
I play often sit and hold it naturally on the thigh.
Standing, it is enjoyable to play.
Despite the nut in "boistique" sustain is not bad.
To the sound of the fretless factory, there's more.
Since the violin was drinking, so I replaced the pickups with the kit JBMorph CREL. There, I'm glad I purchased this bass and the pickups. The fretless was a hidden treasure. The resulting sound is deep, powerful, clean, plus the choice of a range of sounds associated with this kit. I can play without the bass lines bring out the fretless and suddenly teasing sounds that border on the wood.
I play jazz and bossa of 2 amps sound different: an Ashdown C115-300 and an old Marshall 60W 15 inches. An old Quadraverb GT uses discrete compressor and noise gate: I now have a sound that goes well with other instruments.
I for 3 years now, two years of patience to play fair, and now it is changed, it is a treat.
For an instrument made in China and bought cheap, cheat a little and good microphones, I am satisfied with this instrument.
While this is not a low mark or even less a work of maker, but it works well for my amateur level.
A consultant to begin, and then change to give wings to the Fretless.
