3 Inexpensive bass combos you should to check out!

Hey, there! Today I would like to briefly tell you about three cheap bass guitar combos. Few people have heard about them, and if they have heard something, they probably looked skeptically at a not high-end brand. And in vain, because these are quality and most importantly inexpensive bass combos that are great for home and beyond. If you are looking for expensive equipment this article will not do for you because the most expensive combo is a little over 140 euros, although it outputs 80 watts…

So today let’s talk about bass guitar combos from Harley Benton, see their specifications, dimensions, prices, and reviews of those who have already bought. Harley Benton makes a total of three models of budget combos for bassists:

  • Harley Benton HB-20B.
  • Harley Benton HB-40B
  • Harley Benton HB-80B

The most budget-friendly companion in today’s article. It costs little more than 60 euros and at the same time has 8″ speaker which produces 20W of power. After such a price, there is no desire to even pick on it and look for flaws. It is just right for the house. A few people noted that at full volume the speaker starts to rattle, but at the same time they did not use even half of the power in the room.

I have studied the reviews, including negative ones. Out of 378 people, only 16 were dissatisfied. And it is not always related to the quality of the product. For example, one Englishman complained that the European standard plug didn’t fit into his socket and he gave it one star. Although it is stated in the product description.

This is essentially the older brother of the previous one. From the pluses it is naturally worth noting the 10 inch speaker and 40 watts of power, which is already quite enough for home rehearsals for any bassist. To be honest, if I bothered to order it from Germany, I would choose this one. The previous one is not bad at all, but these one is even better.

From the fundamental differences in addition to power – the presence xlr output (di output) for sound recording.

That’s serious. Enough to rehearse in a mix or even put on a small gig. 12″ quality loudspeaker, xlr output, possibility to chain with other loudspeakers – it’s not exactly amateur stuff for a kitchen musician. However, you can’t call it compact either – it’s half a meter high and weighs 21 kg.
