Harley Benton P-120
Made in China by working exploits opened 18 hours a day for misery salaries in toxic vapor solvents. For dtailles look at the characteristics Thomann site. For 89 euros not bad, there's a bar to adjust the handle, the bridges regulators etc ... my Danelectro baritone did not. As against this feels ca t Mount fast (the infernal rates in plants): the nut is pierced to the hard, maybe a drill, and the junction body handle there (!) space. I dmont the handle, there was a piece of cardboard stuck! everything back in place, ok was held, and ca ame of the mouth.


I am very surprised because the neck is super enjoyable, thank you digital machines that do not care about infernal rates. It was enough to copy the original model of "precison bass" fender, so no big deserves but when same. This bass is nearly twice as slight as my old Wasburn of 80 years (a tank). Almost as easy to play a guitar! The only thing is that the handle was SUPER EVIL regl has verged death. For beginners who do not connaisent the system: if a frieze (the strings touch the frets), give a shot allen key in the handle of the head to bend, counterclockwise a watch .dropoff window


I'm bluffing I do not have much experience low level but it sounds great! I do not know if it's the cheap wooden handle or if it is the passive pickups or the ropes but the highs are very present and the bass is too. a lot of presence. great with my big muff green. I put 10 for the price.


I've had four days, I love the sound and the price the handle, the price-quality ratio is unbeatable, I recommend to everyone, subject to rgler the handle.

Probably made in Korea or Tawan. Some of the low of this model will satisfy their users, but beware ... Continue reading ... It is worth the dtour.
21 frets, so 20 boxes ... Are caught.
Bridge: No bridge.
Buttons: 1 Volume, 1 Tone, 2 knobs rude, but mighty.
Channel: shit, but I'll dvelopper.
I put 5 because until the contract is completed ...


The handle is it enjoyable?
This handle is a vritable torture, after half an hour, we can, I do not know if I'm the only one having a low HRIT also m ** Dique, or if they all are, but in any case, it is frankly not good at all!
It is impossible to rgler the trussrod (gte screw head, the cl wool does not fit!)
Moreover, this silent background. Consquence, this bass is 2 years old (it is my high school), and there are 8 mm Action (cart rope / handle) on the fret 7ime ... I do not mean the 12ime, you would be afraid ... And therefore not adjustable.
Disassemble in this horror, I saw a body bad end, not flat or smooth, and above all, crappy screws, a screw drilled in 2 Seconds. I had to change and opt for larger screws, because the handle ended up Sparer body. Trs enjoyable ...
Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
Mwarf. That's my only bass (I m'achte ending for my real bass, Cort New Action Bass, you see I'm not rich ^ ^), and I learned everything I know it. But I must say, it sucks. Me who loves to jam up to the 15/19, I am quickly trs wrong, then I hand grazing and robust enough. But I have 16 years ending for 17, so they are shorter than those of an adult. In any case, can not imagine it will be easy to handle ....
Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
Some form ESG Access in acute, but it makes you adapt quickly and trs. The weight, however, is sufficiently large, low trs I play (I think I am Flea xD) and I * n the back rpt each, in short, a horror.
Do you get a good sound easy? ...
Mwais. With the microphones Benton, also mimics, should not expect wonders. I dvelopperai below for sound.


Appropriate are your style of music?
No, no and no. I play a lot of Funk Rock (RHCP), Funk (Bootsy Collins, Sly and the Family Stone), rock (Muse) and weird stuff (Placebo xD). In any case, we get good sound. I love fast slapper trs (Skinny Sweaty Man 175 tempo, for example), and I have done, still happy, I did not pay ...
With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I have an Ibanez amp (10W. .. but a great sound), and there is no nuance to play slap, push the knob back to play soft, put it to a minimum. As for the volume knob, you have to put your permanent base, so the bass is not pchue. I play with a wah behringer pedals, which I am satisfied with TRS, which catches the sound, for only 17 (Thomann).
What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
I get a bad sound or no crystalline fat, and only a trs good effect pedals (phaser) catch the blow.
What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
On this instrument? all!


This low is zero! She has two years and not worry me as possible ....
The ratio quality price is just right, yet it has only 60 high school cot!
Do not buy it!

So this bass is made in China, it's written on a sticker, if you're ashamed you can always dcoller ... : P
Frets, I am not asking the question, 21 it seems ... Precision Bass type microphone. Bridge, I know nothing too low bridge, so I am silent. And then there is a knob for tone and one volume, thus simple.
As for the race, Bolt everything more so on a standard PB.
I'll put the max, we will not wait more for this price, it's pretty faithful to the original on this point.


The handle me fairly flat, I am not an expert in low, but it's far from a horror unlike previous ones that a rating may say ...
Access in acute my time All right, all dpend how high it was the door ...
Ergonomics RAS so.
Easily obtain a good sound, it was going to come later ...
However, the bass needs to be immediately rule, and the strings exchange. APRS this rather comfortable, no borders for me, I ask too many questions when I play that, you will normally not telling you: "Shit, shit it is this low" in the playing ...


Ben is the DIFFERENT, I play either on my Line6 Toneport (trs able to leave her for good bass and samples APRS site Line6), or the amp 80W Harley Benton transistor (90, very suitable for a low price!).
I remember I had mtallique sound with great highs you would expect from a PB to beginners, the transition amp, but good bass silent evil RULES , bordered etc ...
Since the change of strings, and I RULES I feel to have lost this sound, I can not find a sound with low ... No acute, to fulfill its role of low, it's going, but alone, it does not sound very nice ...
I find this problem especially in the TonePort, the bass amp I have acute, but there has not this sound mtallique, I'm looking for ...

I change the strings soon, they have the ten months ... That they must be rinsed comes into play ... So I put no notes, I will return the top, when I change the strings ...


Aside from my problem of sound, which must be SET APRS ending for one year of use (within 2 weeks), I always say it's the ball for the price.
I love the fact that it does not frieze, is comfortable enough to play, and I do not take the head with the tuning ... I play without me to the head, and trs is correct, yet I'm still hard!
I tried a few other low pourraves, sometimes more expensive ... And one or two more expensive kind of LTD to 400, trs quickly, I can not compare ...
The quality-price ratio in my opinion is good trs, trs t I surprised enjoyable, even if the finishes are still the same hard, but hey this price. .. It does not affect the rating.

So yes, I would do this choice! I just ordered a micro T.bone (condenser microphone, while I have a dynamic mic dj T.bone), I always silent trs happy with thomann diffrent and brands. ..

Harley Benton P-120
Made in China (that described above)
21 frets, pickups Typa P Bass, one volume and one tone, bridge relatively massive, P Bass neck at nut 41 mm.


The handle is "normal," he plays well and immediately despite the action too much (I will return APRS). The low "slumps" but not more than others (eg fender!)
The good news is that one branch and that it plays in a row without rglage. The sound is plutt not bad enough prcis, no noise!


Plugs into a Fender BXR 200, the sound is more than adequate. The Tone knob is plutt good job. It's the biggest (good) surprise of this bass.


I possde a Squier 5 string P bass tune (micro EMG P Bass and J Bass) and a US Lakland 4-string. I bought this bass (since sold after three weeks) to make my own opinion on the "Chinese". The finish is quite mdiocre (exagrment painted head, multiple shots before painting on the neck and body, not trussrod rgler the cl does not fit into the rod (even a facom), buttons knobs crude, mechanical style plastic, rope throw ... The most disturbing is the weight: 3.6 kg (trs trslger !!!). All this MDIT is in the envelope of 88 euros catalog!
In conclusion, this price there is not the photo: the one I reu is playable (despite the action the 12th fret too much that does not seem to be RULES : but do not frieze of origin). This is a purchase for those who want advise beginners: small investment, and if we continue not the bass, it makes a beautiful deco! In short, go for it! (Because it costs 88 euros ...)
