These basses have their own style and sound. They look and feel different from the norm and are excellent value for money and good al-rounders. Great rock machines, mine has great natural sustain and a piano like sound, which when amplified sounds great through the EMG HZ's.
for a sub-£1000 bass I couldn't be happier
- Was this a gift?:
Well, I tried out this bass at my local music store today, and me and my buddy were FLOORED by it's tone. It simply topped the other basses there, including ones that cost double. Simply put, this bass has an unbelievable ammount of low end (with a proper bass cab). It shook the walls and you could really feel it in your chest. It wasn't muddy either. It was clean, powerful, and very deep low-end. It had great mid-range body and tone as well, but if you're into modern music and rock you'll really enjoy the sound once you scoop the mids. The treble was exceptional as well, you could hear slides and picking with ease with some adjustment of the treble controls. I will say though that it WASN'T the clearest high-end I've heard, as there are no doubt basses that beat it in this area, but it's still very good and quite acceptable. Also, the pick ups dont buzz like lower end basses, so that's also a big plus.Looks are personal opinion, but to me, this isn't the best looking bass out there. The headstock looks a little big and awkward. I will say though that the bubinga is beautiful. But it's the sound that's the most important, right? If I had the money, this would be one of the top choices for bass out there. Try it on some decent equipment!
My friend gave me this bass because he didn't know how to play, neither did I, so I learned how to play using this bass. It has a decent tone control, and it looks great. Nothing too fancy, but it gets the job done. I replaced the strings that came with the bass, with some Rotosound RS-66LD Strings, so it kicks. Overall this is okay for starting out, but if you want something more, go with a Warwick or an Ibanez.
I can't say enough about this bass. I know "to each his own" but this one is the perfect fit for me. There are so many great features about this bass: the sculpted body, the active pickups (a tone monster), the fast neck, and very easy on the eyes too! All this for a great price rivaling many high end (and often overpriced IMO) basses out there.I am an active musician playing weekend gigs and this bass often gets a compliment after the show for both looks and sound. I run the bass at full, mids and highs at the halfway point (it is a very snappy bass) and my amp's EQ flat. Direct or through an amp, this bass is tight with punchy lows and a nice even tone across the strings.As with any new instrument, be sure to take the time to set it up to your liking. All this one needed was a new set of strings and a little action adjustment (lowered it a bit).Rock on Spector! Thanks for helping me define my sound.
plays great sounds great,sounds better than more expensive basses
awesome bass for the price, tons of tone possibilities. Had to have mine set up here at a local shop when i got i due to a fair amount of fret buzz, but you should have any new bass or guitar set up when you get it. This is by far the best ive ever played, and its a looker too.
as first bass i bought it few months ago and i must say that is a good bass considering the price...i had to set it up after the shop couse the neck was loose and the frets were not even on the neck...but after that the sound was full, round and rich....i have to say i am very happy with it....and i say to you....go for it!
I once played a $2500 Spector bass in a store and was blown away by it. When my bass was flood-damaged, and I saw this, at this price, I thought, 'Now's my chance to own a Spector!'It didn't go well. When I opened the box, a knob was missing (it was rolling around in the box, but still...). The sound is VERY unimpressive. It improved a lot once I replaced the nasty stock strings, but still, this is not the Spector I remember! Perhaps some quality was sacrificed for the 'value' price.The volume controls are more like switches; there are basically three volume levels (off, loud and a little louder); for about 75% of the knobs' range, there is no detectable difference in level. Same for the tone controls; they have far too little effect on tone as you rotate them.That aside, playability is awesome! With very little setup the action is great! It's also light and feels comfortable playing (I only play sitting down). But, I need a bass that SOUNDS good and this one just doesn't. I play/compose a variety of music styles, so I need much more expressiveness and tone variations than this bass can provide. I really tried to like this bass, and spent time playing with controls and FX but it just doesn't do it for me. It's like a beautiful woman you've been asking out for 2 years; she finally agrees, you go out together and you find she's a complete melon-head!I'm going to be returning this bass post haste!
