A.S.niark's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" good bass for START"

Harley Benton B-400
Then, already bah I bought it in lefty, it changes nothing about the production but I still said,
Basswood body
Maple neck
A micro and a micro JB PB
Active Electronics
Mechanical oil bath
Chrome hardware
3 knobs "tone"
and a volume knob


then, already, contrary to some opinions, mine was playable when I received it, the setting was well done and asser finish, nothing to say
without telling it is (I think) really beautiful in black transparent like that :)
I have 3 years, and apart from changing strings I never touched anything on this bass and it sounds just as good, the welds are still holding (unlike some harley benton)

I play with different styles, from blues to funk and other metal / death
and, frankly micro active are really good for bottom lines

the handle is pretty good, and balancing it yours too well, it is also asser light (unlike my BC Rich warlock) finally good that is not comparable;


I like the sounds good, powerful and asser hot I would say, but what really got me most is that even with a distortion, reverb, or other, the bass still well able to follow
I do not have much to say about the sound, since I'm quite satisfied


I have 3 years, and yet no technical failure and frankly, for a harley benton, compared to the reputation of that mark, I am satisfied, a good bass to start
freighted with its handle 24 and an acute access to properly clear, I would say the price / quality ratio is really good

Harley Benton: Asian manufacturing certainly considering the price of the bass.

Active electric bass 24 frets, 2 pickups, 2 volume and 2 SETTING THE SETTING THE Tone.

mapleneck with rosewoodfingerboard, Saddle width

Black color transparent.

Price: around 150 nine


The frieze round a bit, and a MRIT rglage, but once done, a roll. I am surprised by the enjoyable quality of sound obtained (always in relation to the price of the instrument) I regret, however, SETTING THE Tone prcis enough, I prfr Grave and acute rglage a spar rather than 2 tones. But remember that it was a low 155 and it filled all that is expected of her!
It is relatively lgre, Access in acute is easy because of the large notches, the handle is not big and finishing correct (if somewhat grossire on the head handle) and the logo.


I play on a crate 100W amp, and the sound is of good quality after all with this bass, at least it's night and day compared to the previous low I used Suzuki. I manage to get sounds ranging from jazz slap I prcise I'm not Jaco Pastorius and I play rock, so good sound, as we hear the note without either breath grsillement I was going! But it has done its rle and to explore more range of sounds.


I use it for 4 months, and I must say that for a first prize, I have not found a better price quality ratio, a sound is not too tiring to play and aa of the mouth!
I try like bass Jim Harley or Suzuki OCCAZ and first prize, and although the harley benton is well above a price infrieur. It is clear that if I would do again c'tait a choice.

We know o ca seen that there is a small sticker "Made in China" derrire the head. It possde a handle end 24 frets in rosewood with a touch. There are two microphones and a JB PBPickup. Two volume and two SETTING THE SETTING Tone.


I find the handle trs enjoyable to play. The finish of freight is not perfect but drang in any way the enjoyment of the game to acute CHAC is easy, and I t sounded surprised that even in the highest acute. This bass is lgre. It offers a fun game without back pain ...


The sound of this bass suits me perfectly. I do not t have to make rglage, it sounded good without curling directly. Tone of the knobs are effective for me. It happens to have a nice jazzy sound .. mtal but also is available.


I for a week. My wife bought me she was tired of hearing me say that my missing component of low ... Considering the price, I'm Fully satisfied with this little low .... I'm just home from the studio .. I can not speculate on its use of bass amp ... I branch in my pod xt live ... I come and have a bass sounds very personal which offers great opportunities. The finish is not perfect, but for the price I t trs enjoyable surprise ... If I had to buy a bass, that would be the one with no problem ... 155 by post, a very good sound, good looks, a very acceptable finish ... Srieusement, I am not ashamed to have such a low ... The notes correspond to the use that I did not use a professional RPET or scene: I want to prciser

Harley Benton B-400
Made in china
22 frets three pickups active electronics with volume and bass tones medium "acute" if I may say pretty decent finish
handle to adjust and change strings a direct ...


Channel nice but I am not an expert but it is not tiring you can access all the keys without problems
standing the game is its strong point, but sitting with a sansle c is also
The settings are fairly simple and easy access to the battery


I use the amp with the same mark in 20 watts and with a medium setting c 0 c is rocked round, net


It's been one week I had the day I settle the handle and change the strings (those are not origins to top ...) I want a bass to play the home and I've found it suits me perfectly, and quality level / c price is 200euro with good arch houssej amp and have to try a pack Cort / peavay worth double and ca not sound better (even less versatile I think) I do not really regret ca worth its weight in peanuts
