Harmony (String Instruments) H27
Made in USA in 1966, more precisely Chicago, for mine. Short sleeve scale (pitch 30), 20 frets, rosewood fingerboard with pearl repres two DeArmond pickups with each Tone and volume slecteur to choose one or the other microphone, or both. Classic. The mcaniques are a little cheap, but they work very well and take good tuning. The overall finish is classic and classy (binding, quail plate imitation tortoise, ...).

USE

The handle is very late, the action is (relatively) low. The instrument is trslger, well balanced. A delight for the back! The Gnrale ergonomics are good. As for the sound, it's plug and play. We adhre the roots sounds proposes the beast or not.

SONORITS

This is the kind of bass that gives the best of itself on all-tube amp (Bassman 100 siverface in my case), and flat files ropes. Corollary: it will be difficult and against nature to ask him a modern sound. However, in its domain, perfect for jazz, blues, pop, ... For the slap: we forget.
The neck pickup is round, the bridge pickup reminds Gainsbourg's Melody Nelson, the mix of the two Ramne some treble the original roundness. All this with his "rope machine" especially at short scales. It is very close to a Rivoli piphone or a Fender Coronado.
FYI, it does use by bassist of small faces, and occasionally plays today by bassist Paul Weller.

NOTICE GLOBAL

The H27 is a model of versatility, but if you want a short scale to its roots, why not? The odds are very reasonable for an instrument of the sixties, it is rather rare in France ... I like!

Harmony (String Instruments) H27
Made in America in 1966, specifically in Chicago, for mine. Neck short scale (pitch 30), 20 frets, rosewood fingerboard with pearl markers, two DeArmond pickups with individual tone and volume, switch to choose either micro, or both. Classic. The lifts are a little cheap, but they work very well and are good tuning. The overall finish is classic and classy (binding, plate imitation tortoiseshell, ...).

UTILIZATION

The neck is very thin, the action is (relatively) low. The instrument is very light and well balanced. Happiness for the back! The ergonomics are good. As for the sound, it's plug and play. It adheres to the roots sound that offers the beast, or not.

SOUNDS

This is the kind of bass that gives the best of herself on an amp all lights (Bassman 100 siverface in my case), and flat wound strings. Corollary: it will be difficult against nature and to ask him a modern sound. However, in its field, it is perfect for jazz, blues, pop, ... For the slap: we forget.
The neck pickup is round, the bridge pickup reminds Gainsbourg Melody Nelson, the mix of both acute back a little to the original roundness. All this with the "clothesline" especially short scales. It is very close to an Epiphone Rivoli or a Fender Coronado.
FYI, it was used by the Small Faces bass player and is played from time to time today by bassist Paul Weller.

OVERALL OPINION

The H27 is not a model of versatility, but if you want a short scale to its roots, why not? The rating is very reasonable for an instrument of the sixties, it is rare in France ... Like it!
