Euro 5 Strings and Pup Recommendations?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by PhilaCPJ, Jun 28, 2005.


  1. I got a Spector Euro 5 about a month ago and the thing is smoking. It barks, it growls. It puts the Warwicks I was considering to shame. I had a couple of questions:

    1) String recommendations. I tried dropping a set of DR Lo-Riders (.130B) and the fit through the bridge was kinda snug to say the least. I'm assuming taper cores are preferrable. Can anyone recommend a set of steels that complement the bass? I loved Prisms, so I'm thinking ProSteels. DR seems to have major QC issues these days and my acid hands destroy them far too quickly.

    2) PUP swaps. Has anyone tried using the EMG 40J's or EMG 40CS instead of the stock DC's?

    Thanks,
