    Call me almost-Mattayus. I would have preferred EMG HZs, but this thing sounds pretty fuckin' great with whatever the hell these are. It's a MIK Legend 4 in gloss white. I was actually recording when the postal service showed up so I took it out of the box, tuned it and immediately tracked...

    Matt's tone here is friggin' awesome, and since it's so awesome (despite Matt being a cunt) I assumed this was an upper end USA bass. It's a Spector NS2000 Q4, which (if my Google-fu is correct) is a relatively inexpensive import. And while I can't find any of those on eBay it looks like they're...

    I wanted a 5 string as i've been playing in lower tunings again lately writing some death metal, had a browse of what was available used and there were some great deals going. Ended up picking up this Spector legend custom 5 with a hard case for £300 - a great deal. Its got a little buckle...

    Those SimS pickups are pretty damn cool. Switchable between P-bass style split coil, Jazz bass style single coil, or humbucker, all with fancy LEDs.

    Grabbed one of these after speaking with Matt and digging the Spector sound for a good few months now. I know it's not one of the expensive ones, but it definitely has something of 'that' sound to it. No pics, 'cause it's a bass, right? Looks like this. Had a go at recording something, and...

    1999 Spector NS4CRFM. I actually traded my Kramer Forum 1 for this... Almost mint, light swirling, 2 dings on the back and finish/pitting on bridge. Quilted maple wings and maple neck thru Transparent red finish EMG Geezer Butler Pickups Darkglass Tone Capsule Preamp Schaller tuners and...

    My bassist recently got a SX 6 string from rondo and it is a surprisingly nice bass for the money. I got a tonepump preamp off of Angrychair here and figured i'd post a demo. Pickups are still stock, though I did replace all of the other electronics (CTS stacked volume and switchraft jack)...

    So, I'm chopping my ESP Standard Series Surveyor in as there's something in the tone that I just can't get on with, I used it to track my last album and there was a frequency that was killing me. I was thinking about going Precision/Jazz as a lot of albums that I love have been tracked on them...

    I was doing some tracking with the new Spector to try it out in the context of my EP. This is just an EQ'd DI, with a high-passed distorted track for the top-end *clank* It's overly loud for demonstration purposes, and not very compressed either. Despite all my guffing about playing with...

    Snagged this last week as a last ditched effort to bond with 5 strings again. Also missed having a Spector in the stable (should have never sold my Euro, but too late now), so it fit that bill too. I've been wanting a bass to play with a low B so before I restrung one of my 4's as BEAD I...

    Got it in today, soldered on the connects to my pickups. I had to use a reamer to enlarge the holes for the pots to fit. that went pretty well, though the reamer left a few small chips in the edges of the paint, I think I pressed to hard maybe. they are minute and covered by the washers/knobs...

    I'm in the market for a bass, but on the cheap. I am curious if the cheaper Spector basses still have that grindy tone or is the magic is all in the preamp the more expensive ones use? Trying to achieve something like this, grindy but with a big low end. Open to non-Spector suggestions...

    Holy fucksticks, this is the only holoflashed anything that I actually like the look of. Cheap Korean bass to boot. :yesway:
  16. Music: Other Instruments
    I've been wanting a decent 5-string for awhile. I had a Music-Yo Kramer Baretta, but it had ridiculously wide string spacing and atrocious pickups that weren't in any standard form factor and couldn't be easily replaced. So, I found this at Atomic Music and couldn't resist. It's a 1999 Korean...

    Opinions? Originals vs. Kramers vs. Reissues?
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've got a ltd b-4e bass that sounds kinda hollow. Looks great, but i have not been pleased with it for 2years. There's a used spector bass for 400bux that is a 5 string and pretty beat up. It sounds good acoustically, though i haven't plugged it in yet. Anyone have experience with...
  19. Music: Other Instruments
    I'm in the market to replace my current 4 string bass, a G&L L2000 Tribute model. I've been leaning towards getting a Spector Euro 4LX, but there is no one nearby that carries them. Does anyone have any experiences with the Czech made Spectors?
