40 Watt Guitar Combo Amplifier

The Harley Benton HB-40R is a 40W combo that offers everything required for practising at home or in the rehearsal room, and at a fantastic price. The built-in 10" speaker sounds highly crisp, and if a bit more wumm is needed, a larger external speaker can be connected. At 4 ohms, the amp delivers 40W, which for many situations is completely sufficient. A 3-band tone control and a second channel are included in case you really want to make some noise. A spring reverb unit gives the sound some additional room and shine, and the headphone output enables you to play in the smallest of rooms without disturbing the neighbours.

A good beginner amp - but a bit too much for bedroom play?
Mr D, 11.05.2017
40 watts is, quite simply, a lot of power; I've never been able to set the volume to this thing above 6 without fear of deafening myself.
Build quality is 4/5 , as plugging anything in to the dedicated AUX IN port for backing track play results in horrible buzzing and insanely loud popping noises. This was tested across several different aux cables and portable devices.
Other than that, the amp itself is very solidly built, and can definitely take a few knocks. The overdrive channel feature is a bit rubbish, but the clean channel is great. EQ controls are good.

Another note : This is very useful to bring to parties as a speaker. Simply make sure you're set to the clean channel, set the volume low (1 or 2 out of 10), and use an adapter to connect the 3.5mm jack from your phone to the regular guitar input jack. Many friends have commented on how great the sound is playing back party playlists, and the best part is that you can go from listening to music to playing it, with just an electric guitar and an aux, with the same amp. Very versatile.

More than i exprected
Kai555, 15.06.2014
The sound quality is really good and it is even loud enough to play in a band! Assuming the drum machine is not that machine like ;)
The equalizer is sensitive and can be adjusted precisely. The overdrive channel ranges from crunch to distortion.
The built in reverb is also a nice feature, witch thickens the sound. Good for surf music.
This amp is also very good for playing at home. It has an extra audio jacket for headphones. You can also plug in another box, good for monitoring or whatever you want to do. All in all i would strongly recommend this one for beginners.

I use this amp at home, and 40 watts are pretty enough for me.

Cons: It doesn't have FX loop. Sometimes it takes 2 minutes after turning on to recognize the input.
Pros: 40 watts is a big plus. It has reverb control, foot switch connector and output for external speaker.

Good amplifier for home.

Not bad,nor lasting
16.02.2016
Only been used at home,except for 1-2 garage practice instances at friend's house and used only rarely in the past three years,as it is a bit bigger (wattage-wise) than I had expected.The sound was not too shabby,although,if dialed poorly,it can be pretty muddy.Even the reverb is decent,given the price of the amp.The thing is,some of the pots are now scratchy.The volume pot for the overdrive/distortion channel is pretty much broken,it is extremely scratchy and,somewhere between 0 and 1,it suddenly sounds like I turned it to 11.

A good starter amp if "loud" is your kind of music,although it is definitely not suitable for an appartment and it probably will be the first thing you will need to upgrade from your beginner gear.
