Harley Benton Guitar PackIt’s December 2020, the last month in a year we’ll look back on like that piss-poor sequel to a great film that ruined it for everyone. But we’ve still got two great prizes in our Holiday Season raffle for you – this week we’re giving away a fantastic guitar pack by Harley Benton, with a guitar, and amp and an overdrive pedal!

Harley Benton Guitar Pack: Guitar, Amp and Pedal

The nice people over at Harley Benton have provided a great little guitar pack. This little package of guitar goodies is ideal if you’re starting out with electric guitar (really, all you need is some cables) or if you just want to add some cool gear to practise with.

ST-62 VW Electric Guitar

The ST-62 is Harley Benton’s take on a classic design with two cutaways and three single-coil pickups. This is a great workhorse guitar, a reliable little instrument to have at home if you fancy a quick jam session, or for rehearsals. And yes, the sound and playability is easily good enough to gig with. Canadian maple neck, Kluson-style tuners and synchronised tremolo, nice Vintage White finish that complements the tortoiseshell pickguard. The customer reviews on this model give it 4.6/5, so Harley Benton must be doing a lot right with this guitar. Find out more here.

HB-40R 40-Watt Combo Amp

Harley Benton certainly knows how to make some reliable gear that stays the course and does what it’s told. The HB-40R has been around since 2001, providing beginners and practised guitarists alike with a sturdy 40W combo that’s ideal for rehearsals or home practise using the headphone output. With 40W on tap, you’ve got enough power to make yourself heard even when your drummer has had a Red Bull too many. Two channels, tube emulation circuit, spring reverb, AUX in, Line out – you can’t go wrong with this. Find out more here.

Vintage Overdrive Pedal

Another bit of immensely useful, robust Harley Benton gear that does the job. And then some. Its vintage-style drive tones have plenty of character and growl. Use this to add more heft and cohesion to your sound at lower settings or dime it for some full-on 70s-style OD. Drive, Volume and Tone give you all the control you need. And seriously, who doesn’t need another good-sounding overdrive pedal? Over 1000 customer reviews on Thomann give it 4.5/5 on average. Find out more here.
