Harley Benton has unveiled the SolidBass series, a new line of solid-state bass amplifiers that come with a very affordable price tag.
Kicking off the series are two combo amplifiers, an amplifier head and a range of four cabinets.
The products in the SolidBass series share many features, with the main differences between them being wattage and, for combos and cabinets, their speaker sizes.
On all amplifier models, there’s a four-band EQ, a Smart Compressor, a built-in tuner and a mute function. Sockets include inputs for both active and passive basses; a DI balanced output with pre, post, lift and ground switches; an FX loop; headphone output, and line input for silent practice.
The smaller of the two combos is the 150-watt SolidBass 150C, which comes with a 12-inch custom-voiced bass woofer and a 3-inch tweeter. Meanwhile, the 300-watt SolidBass 300C has a 15-inch bass woofer and 3-inch custom-voiced tweeter.
With the amplifier heads, wattage goes even higher, with the smaller SolidBass 300H packing 300 watts, and the SolidBass 600H packing 600 watts. Both heads, however, share the same dimensions, and were designed to be paired with the series’ cabinets.
SolidBass cabinets go from the single-speaker SolidBass 115T – equipped with a 15-inch and 3-inch tweeter – to the massive SolidBass 810, which comes equipped with eight 10-inch woofers.
As for pricing, the SolidBass 150C and 300C are available for $255 and $315, respectively. The SolidBass 300H and 600H go for $244 and $275, respectively. And the cabinets range from $122 for the 115T to $335 for the SolidBass 810.
