    My first contact with this bass, after unpacking
    was a big surprise ....
    I was struck by the beauty of the instrument ...
    Surprisingly NICE for the 1st prize.
    M after being recovered from the moment of surprise,
    I began to look more closely at the machine.
    It was still not fool my eye
    and my ears savvy old pro bass
    on Fender precision. So I looked
    meticulously to identify which was
    lizard. In 1, the handle, I present the beast
    and handle height and well before
    my left eye (my eye Director) ...
    it is PERFECT, straight, does not hollow or
    no bomb. OK good, frets now
    How well are cut, are they all
    at the same height, they hang ....
    well no, it all seems very good.
    Ah .. ACTION ropes, height ...
    I look ... at the 20th box: 2mm is little
    EUM .... it'll curl it does not surprise me
    .. I see you later, I continue to explore
    the trick. Hardware ... there is nothing that is undone?
    Non-Nickel. The bridge is a type model
    accuracy, it is OK, height adjustable ropes

    . Mechanical how are they?,
    ... I look .... they are chromed steel and me
    seem to be quite strong and fit.
    I think I've been around, Oh no, I forgot,
    currently well Trussrod, the steel bar to
    adjustment handle? ... Yes .. it is indeed
    . Finally, I fiddle with the knobs, see if there is
    the game .. I also fiddles with attachment strap
    see if they are secure. All this seems to me
    quite correct and I remain skeptical before
    this faithful replica of the icon ............





    UTILIZATION

    NO .. NO .... I forget ... we will not pass
    serious things after this sweet
    hors d'oeuvre. SOUND, I begin by
    grant, normal, I noted that it was
    almost immediately, there was not much to do.
    I plug a jack the bass amp
    (PEAVY 100W) I put zero volumes
    low (I rotates in the reverse direction
    of clockwise and here must be zero,
    theoretically) I turn the amp volume
    Midi is the volume that I use on stage ..
    IMPECCABLE, there is no hum, nothing ......
    I gradually rises ... the volume knob
    central micro ... the sound appears in
    amp without spitting or noise
    .. Good ... I hit a few notes .. PUT ... IN!
    SOUND! So the first analysis: good attack,
    its heavy and thick, good roundness,
    but not too good and envelope .. sound
    fedora that promotes serious mediums to
    detriment of the subwoofer. not acute,
    the normal tone knob is at zero I test
    the tone knob ... he plays his role very well,
    as it was in "serious" position
    by turning it clockwise a
    shows, it adds treble ... well for
    slap ... and to blow the G string.
    I lower the volume from 1 to mount the volume
    microphone 2, I put the key to zero .. ah!
    Well, that's the sound that I missed with the other
    .. Accurate sound, no envelope ... ideal for
    disco type: Basic / octave, even
    tone with zero .... I commend his grve
    of acute fart here .. well what is boring
    what is the definition of notes is not
    blurred by excessive or severe curves.
    I finished ... I'll put the two pickups together
    tone to zero ....... oh! there! we are in
    great .... I love that sound tends ...
    bass grandmother. a mixture of serious
    and high mids ... I do not know well, here me
    also recalls the sound of a fretless .... all
    this is very boring ... I finished adding
    treble with the tone knob,
    and yet its dispute I imagine
    for hard rock or métal.un its precise
    mixing roundness (limited) e grve
    treble for a game on the eighth
    swift tempos. To summarize, this
    Harley Benton bass offers a range of sounds
    very correct for we know how to draw
    party with its complement: the Amp.
    In fact, we have at our disposal six different sounds:
    1 - 2 MICRO1 - micro 2 3 - 1 2 micro: serious tone
    4 - micro May 1 - June 2 micro - micro 1 +2: acute tone
    In fact, I forgot, I played on boxes 15-20
    She DOES NOT TERRY.
    For the comfort of the game, there is nothing to say, it is a
    Precision, with its advantages and
    cons ... too heavy for some ....
    Hey, I just noticed, this low
    is well balanced and does not sting the head.
    So this bass Harley Benton can be
    recommended for all, whatever the level,
    beginners and more assertive ....

    SOUNDS

    THIS IS THE ONE THAT WILL PLAY IN WHICH WILL SOUND.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I put as quality / price ratio 12/10,
    however it does not mean anything, you take
    a piece of string, you pikes Broomstick
    your mother, and also the washing machine, you will
    make a low Treats: report
    value 10/10, but you have not an instrument
    terrible, I prefer to think otherwise,
    if we say that low quality recognized
    such a Fodera Monarch, a Sadowsky or Warwick,
    tools worth more than € 5,000
    have a grade of 10, one could say that
    Harley Benton PJ 4HTR this deserves 6/10
    and your washing machine would 0.000001 / 10.
    But do not forget the Harley Benton costs only
    € 109, comparrée tools 5000 €,
    and readily accessible to the common
    mortal ...... you see .....
    and we are not all Jaco Pastorius.


    With my satisfaction, of course I would do this choice
    as I look for fun and especially for the price ridiculous
    buy Harley Benton JAZZ ....
