A review of the Harley Benton MM 84A SB Deluxe Series Bass Guitar. Unboxing, review and testrecording in the home studio.

So, I decided to treat myself! I’ve bought myself a bass guitar, and not just a bass. I wanted it to be affordable, good looking and of course it needs to sound decent.

I found on the internet that many people were pretty enthusiast about the Harley Benton brand and the Harley Benton MM 84A SB Deluxe Series got a few good reviews. I loved it’s looks (Music Man style, sunburst). So I decided to order it online from Thomann (Germany).

This bass guitar will cost you less than 200 euro’s, shipping included. It was delivered by UPS and I was happy to see Thomann packed it very well since UPS seems to have treated it rough!

In this video I’ll do an “unboxing” and review of my brand new bass guitar, the Harley Benton MM 84A SB Deluxe Series from Thomann (Germany).

The Harley Benton MM 84A SB Deluxe Series is a very nice bass guitar for starters and/or as a bass for gigs. It’s got 2 humbucker pickups, 5-way Pickup switch, d’Addario strings, Basswood body (not too heavy), Maple top and Canadian Maple neck. Wilkinson MWM4 Alnico humbuckers.

In this video I play it over a (sort of) guitar amp -the “party amp” I’ve reviewed before– and directly plugged in to my mixer in the home studio). For more details and how to order see the Thomann website at https://www.thomann.de.
