Harley Bentons new bass range! Heads, combos and cabs!

Recommended Posts

As everyone knows I am getting as much HB stuff as possible before the drawbridge is pulled up and we can't buy from the continent any more. 

However I have no room for any more cabs, dammit!

This is very interesting.

Their Vintage G212 guitar cab is superb - and it's cheaper than just buying a pair of Celestion V30 cones alone!

From what I can see (looking at the 4x10 version) its basically the old 410T (one of which I just sold) but with grill cloth instead of metal, Tolex instead of Carpet and metal corners instead of plastic?

An 8x10“ with just a pair of side handles, no tilt-back castors and bar handle? It looks like good value, but I suspect not that many will end up being moved around and gigged!

The amps have a bit of the Ashdown look and most of the Toneman range are now on 3 months delivery, often a sign of discontinuation. No lightweights though. The 300W is heavier than the Toneman 300W.

Like the look of the solid state heads as well. 

600W, built in compression, and a tuner!

If the fan is quiet I might have one!

Am sure someone will dive in soon. Covid has meant it won’t be me though ☹️

Well, if you want to wait for my review before you buy I'm afraid it'll be a few weeks. 

Dog needs an operation so I'm watching the pennies.

It's nerve racking, general anaesthetic at her age, but needs must.

Hope she manages okay, so hard when dealing with pets. Good luck.

The range seems to have some Ashdown characteristics, maybe they are acting as a design consultancy.

£248 appears to be very competitive for 600 watts. I wonder what the quality and reliability will be like.

Got to say though that the HB Block 800 at £266 appeals to me as a backup.

Shame they only have jack sockets and are only rated at 120w RMS

There appear to be TWO fans.

Great for those cold winter evening rehearsal sessions.

That’s pretty standard for a 2x12 guitar cab though. It’s not designed for bass

I would be concerned about the frequency response of those new cabs, they are rated to only go down to 60Hz, even the 15" one, their old, now out of production ones, as far as I recall it, were rated to go down to 35Hz.

I feel you are wavering in your quest....

Who needs furniture when you can sleep on a 8x10 ?

Indeed.

Why no bass version ?

You may be joking, however, would you like to see a picture of my bedside table?
