Best acoustic bass under $1,000?
Jonathan Killstring, 12.12.2019
For my money, yes. I've tried plenty, owned a couple, and none have brought a smile to my face like this black beauty. Good for jazzy faux-double bass sounds, but I really like the way it blends in with different styles.

A nice folksy platform to go under hammered dulcimer and harp.

A smooth organic tone that blends in with singer-songwriter guitars the way that dirty electric bass blends with heavier music.

And on the topic of heavier music, I like to use acoustic bass for the "clang" side of a dual-mono bass sound. It adds a very different sort of percussive element to the low end.

So yeah. This has replaced much more expensive basses in my playing rotation.

Plus, it's fun to play.

I was skeptical on the Harley Benton thing before. I get it now: this thing SLAPS.

After 40 years classic and electric gitar, I thought to try bass allso.
The semi accoustic of this bass gives it a real fine sound. The strings are easy enough for my fingers. So improvising with it, with or without amp, is a pleasure. Wish I had bought it much earlier.
Had mezelf deze fijne bass veel eerder moeten gunnen. Zelfs met mijn reuma vingers heb ik meer dan genoeg kracht op deze snaren. Moet ze toch genoeg bewegen. En de krachtsport al musicerend is altijd erg motiverend. Geeft mijn drummen en ander gitaarspel weer een grote boost. In kunnen horen en instrumentbeheersing.

Bought this for my son, so far it's very good, sounds really good and there is nothing about it I can say it's bad or below standard, so far so good and I'm happy with it.
