Aguilar + Spector

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by MrFortuneCookie, Jun 22, 2001.


  1. I am considering getting the EMG preamp in my Czech Spector changed to an Aguilar OBP-1. What do you guys think is it worth it? It'll cost me about $110-$120 for the OBP-1 and another like $100 to have it professionally installed. What do you guys think?

    I like the Aguilar OBP-1. I have it in my Warmoth 5 string & it kick's @$$!!! I'm also thinking of putting one in my NS-5 CR & maybe putting EMG 40 J's in it, just to make it alittle different than the USA NS-5 have.

    Stu made it sound when i talked to him that he wasnt going to put those into the basses because he was so happ with what he was using! But aquiler sent him a box of them and they just set there for a long time and one day when he was bored he slipped one in and he said damn what a cool change! So he is talking about putting them in standerd soon to all american basses!
