    Well ... Harley Benton!

    Harley Benton JB-20Published on 03/12/13 at 14:00
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    The JB-20 is an electric bass style Jazz Bass (JB -> Jazz Bass course ^ ^!).
    With regard to the Harley Benton, it is likely that it was made in China.
    I allowed myself to add the features of this instrument in its form, so refer to it for details.
    Regarding the quality of these is correct. It is not in the tonewood or in the high-precision hardware and even less in advanced electronics.
    The instrument is strictly for beginners if you believe the materials.

    Regarding the quality of these is correct. It is not in the tonewood or in the high-precision hardware and even less in advanced electronics.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is "abnormally" comfortable, but it hides no surprises and continues to play peacefully.
    The handle has been especially designed for bassists do not feel disoriented when entering the world of electricity. Finally ... this is what Fender has done and it is assumed that our German friends have kept the measurements of the handle. I find the handle very comfortable for a low (being the original guitarist). You access to the latest hard enough frets, but it is not the purpose of the Jazz Bass or so occasionally.
    Regarding the body, we feel the rough wood of the instrument against or without it becoming too heavy when playing standing. So nothing to report.

    SOUNDS

    Let's see ...
    Sound "empty" is necessarily low, but you can hear clearly if there is not too much animation around. And the sound is very soft, and very nice if we exclude small vibrations of the strings untimely massive bass.
    Once connected, the sound is fairly neutral and that's fine start, guitarists gather there ;)
    There are 2 volume and 1 tone and not the reverse, each with its particular microphones (I love the bridge pickup but the neck pickup less). It is a very versatile instrument and the final mat a bit like a strat.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The bass belongs to a friend, but I use it regularly for about 3 months and I could get an idea relatively concise.
    I owned an Epiphone EB-0 that breathed more blues-rock music and had a much thicker neck. So two very different instruments.

    What I love about this bass, it sounds pretty groovy and easy to slap sounds, and the handle which I find excellent for the price.

    A quality / price ratio almost unbeatable since sold exclusively on the internet.
    If I had to I would take the bass model above (probably between 250 and 300 €) because I already affects a little ball in my class.
    However, it is an excellent instrument for beginners!
