    Polly bass, I'm not sure why LesFleaNut's extensive and comprehensive list of bassists who do or have used Specters in a band setting doesn't help you.

    For example, Dave LaRue used Specter basses in Steve Morse's band for their albums released in the early nineties. All you have to do is get one of those albums and you will hear the Specter bass being played in a band setting. Or do you mean by "band setting" in a live gig rather than on a CD?

    Check out Specter's web site. They have the names of some players who currently are using Specter basses in live gigs...for example, Gary Tallent of Bruce Springsteen's band.

    Pink Floyd's Guy Pratt uses an '85 NS2 in this songs from the album Pulse(Live '94):
    Take it back(video only);Sorrow;Coming Back to life;Another brick in the wall;Run Like Hell.
    When Guy grabs that spector,has one of the most growling and powerfull sounds I have ever heard!I love it
     
  9. I just saw those movies on the spector website with Quentin Berry and I'm just totally blown away. That was amazing, does he heave an album out or anything? Spectors are cooler that I had originally thought.

    What i thought was kinda cool is the fact that he uses not a us neck-thru, not a us bolt on, not a czech made one. But a Korean pro series. And the spector tone is right there.
