Amount of Strings:4-String
A Rocking Classic bass on a budget
The Harley Benton TB-70 is an instrument that stands out thanks to its striking appearance and powerful sound, and it offers an affordable point of entry into the world of this unusual style of bass guitar. Thanks to its set neck and reverse-style mahogany body, the TB-70 can deliver both a gritty playing feel and a distinctive, full-sounding tone. Reliable deluxe hardware components such as a floating cast bridge and four enclosed machine heads also make the Harley Benton TB-70 user-friendly, and the addition of active electronics enhances the sonic range of this affordable classic.
A down-and-dirty yet flexible Rock bass
In terms of sound and looks, this bass is perfect for making music in the style of Rock bass legends like John Entwistle of The Who and Mötley Crüe’s low-end maestro Nikki Sixx. Of course, the Harley Benton TB-70 also has the typical, slightly scooped Rock sound that allows you to cut through the mix when playing in a band. Thanks to the two Roswell GB4 mini humbuckers and effective two-band EQ controls, the TB-70 also offers a lot of variety, so you are not limited to one particular musical style. For a fatter sound, one turn of the bass knob is enough, and the upper frequencies can be adjusted as desired with the treble control.
Rock feeling for everyone
Many modern basses with a distinct Heavy Metal touch are quite expensive to buy. However, this does not mean that you have to forego these great sounds. With the TB-70, Harley Benton has designed a bass for the lower price segment that will thus be affordable to everybody but that also specifically addresses the needs of bassists who specialise in harder styles of music. If you are a beginner looking for a striking bass with character and enjoy playing heavy styles, the Harley Benton TB-70 is the right choice for you - no matter whether you are just starting out at home or already performing on stage with a band.
A sturdy bass for stage and home studio alike
There is no doubt that a bass like this belongs on stage, and with the Harley Benton TB-70 you are well prepared for your first live Rock gigs. However, this inexpensive Rock bass also will also prove to be an uncomplicated companion for the home studio. The Roswell GB4 mini humbuckers are not affected by interference and therefore will not cause any unwanted background noise when recording - just one of the reasons why the Harley Benton TB-70 is a great choice for guitarists who are looking for an inexpensive and straightforward Rock bass for occasional recordings.
