Harley Benton B-600
purchased from thomann, obviously ...: O)
I'm not training bassist, but I wanted a bass guitar for "making" myself my bass lines on my compositions in my home studio.
Chinese manufacturing, first prize at the outset here calm the heat! good but must get started, and why not a six strings, then with five mouais here seemed ample, it is heavy here and here leans toward that will fall at the same time there are plenty of like that ... ; O)
this is going to end as I shoot, what to removal, care of shrink sleeve random, do not drag your fingers!
2 microphones type "barto", a volume knob, bass, treble, and one for the "dosage" active / passive and active electronics so with his small 9 volt battery easily accessed on the back of the instrument and which coexists with remaining electronics, cable mode "marmoset". I do not speak the tailpiece / bridge, correct adjustment with that thing is the sleight of hand. not good praise will you tell me, next to the last sale price ... I put 4!


Then strangely, although the manufacturing and finishing seem sloppy, use is not so bad as you might think. here plays fiddle here to leave (this is a trick guitarist here), and then in the end you get to draw drinking sounds of the machine. note that I keep a set of basic instrument, marcus miller'm not either! ; O)


considering the fact that I do not use this instrument only occasionally, and I'm not a real bassist, I can draw what I want in a home studio use. it is also here for that I bought. I coupled with BASS POD tones are correct.


then of course in hindsight, and although they have very little experience with the bass, I'd choose another, more expensive too.

<p class="bbcode-offtopic"> Off topic: <span>Harley Benton instruments are made ​​exclusively for Thomann. THE FIRST thing that brand is the price of instruments, dfiant any competition entry! But this cover does something?</span>

So it's a 6-string bass made in China. The string spacing is 16.5mm. Frne body, handle stocky, rosewood fingerboard. Scale 34 ", 24 frets. Electronique active.

175 displays on the site of Thomann, I dfie initially to find a new 6-string bass cheaper.

Finish level, it is really above all entry-level home Yam, Cort, Squier and others.


At the Premire grip (31 December 2004, as souvenirs), I was afraid to deal as an unplayable race given that c'tait permire my 6 strings. But ultimately the passage 5-6 string has any possible problem. However, is that beginners ... a force play one feels the thickness of the handle (it's been very Warwick ..) and personally I'm a fan of the sleeves for hyper.

Access in acute is a little hard on the strings the most serious (if half especially, from the box 20).

The weight is pretty important too (not far from 6kg).


THE big surprise of this bass. The sound is really not bad at all. The if is a little soft, but the active electronic sound palette allows a good ... After frankly I would say no more, the sound as a rather subjective lment, try.


I used this bass 7 months before selling for another six strings. I advise all those who, like me, want to try the 6-string without breaking the bank.

Ngatifs points:
- The thickness of the handle
- Weight
- If a little soft

- Sound
- Electronic active (for an entry-level is rather rare)
- Qualitprix the best entry-level 6-string.

Made in China, Bolt body ash (?), Etc..
Two humbuckers for 6 strings and empty, 6 strings!


Channel enjoyable, correct form, not too heavy, but it must make when the rglages receives, it is impractical.


Good sound, the sound of the string "if" is well made, its rglages allow it to get good rsultats for just any kind of music.
We are in the high end compared to other low 200 euros that can be found. (And certainly not the 6 strings).


Despite finishing improved, it's a great quality low price level, and so given that it is a six-string and that the price there is nothing, it's a matter vritablement. I took some pictures and do a more complete review on my personal website:

Harley Benton B-600
6-string bass with active electronics a ridiculous price. Nothing special if n is the poor quality of the finish but good for the price ....


The handle I found it quite the right and access to acute and really well but at the same time rarely used by me. No it is not lgre and the weight is unevenly distributed. With regard to the sound, I have not found immediately, but once found j shut content. The knobs agisent well but the differences are too great sound knob between 0 and bottom. After two months, I found sounds exellent and I've used the production of an album and I have not really dessu di t all. Branch on my card directly.


- Appropriate are your style of music?
- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
Branch on my care on a sound or 300watts Hartke
- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
Not quite, but already sounds correct for me to make The variety and you even see the big rock metal. At registration, I had little noises parazites in acute but the problem is with rgl a low pass or cut up to 3.5 KHz or even a little more.
- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
For the price it should be ps demanding but enjoyable day silent surprise as it was well worth the money and the price and lower than its quality RAPORT by Audible.


I used the last 3 years and I have to sell it, thinking that a better quality coffee should do better and I have an ibanez chop with Bartolini 780 euros but finally, the difference in price n not explain the difference of quality if n is on the finish. In addition to the Ibanez, I have trouble finding a good sound. A single day it's going but in a mix, it is misplaced every time. Harley benton by the cons sounded good alone or even with a symphony orchestra.

I really wanted to give my opinion because I was afraid before the purchase but you know what? I Rasht one soon and I'll nab one more version frettles curiosities by a passive and also because if I sell my ibanez, I can buy 4 or 5 m harley benton who finally fulfill their contracts better than what we could imagine . It's like free internet for, is not parseque c c c that is cheap is the m ...

PS: I have not RAPORT by price and that opinion is mine and it is not all share because we are all different. N buy anything based on the opinions of others because you will crash. Try it yourself.

For an ide go (www.myspace.com/rootlesstree45). All bass were recorded with t harley benton.
