Harmony bass guitars in the 1971 Harmony Catalogue
Harmony H22, H25 and H27, as demonstrated in the 1971 Harmony Catalogue. Note the H22 is the double-cutaway version the H22/1

Chicago-based Harmony were a giant of American guitar production; selling more guitars than any other manufacturer in the early 1960s. Yet they manufactured just three electric basses: the semi acoustic H22 and H27, two basses most notably used by Ronnie Lane when he was in the Small Faces; and the solid-body Harmony H25.

Unlike the H25 and H27, the H22 was just a single pickup bass; but it had a terrific sound. Be sure to listen to the Harmony H22 soundclips and the Harmony H27 soundclips.

Low-end basses?

Harmony achieved it's massive sales by aiming at the lower end of the market. But that does not mean that these are undesireable basses today. In fact, with a few upgrades (primarily some heavier duty tuning keys, and an intonatable bridge), a player-grade Harmony H22 can be turned into a very playable bass. The stock De'Armond pickups have a great vintage tone.
