Is this normal?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Nickthebassist, Mar 26, 2005.

  1. Does anyone else find their Spector Euro LX sounds like a beefed up Fender Jazz? Mine has a really farty tone, growly. I was wondering, is this the tone of the bass? (i can make it stop doing this but I quite like the tone, I was just wondering if it's normal).

    Nick, have you by chance every described such things as cereal, tire treads, or hair fashions as "growly?"
  3. Eh? No, this bass really is quite growly. I might record some clips.
  4. Specters do have a large growl too'em. I'm on your side Nick
  5. Hmm. I don;t know if this is natural growl or whether it's clipping my sansamp again. Problem is, it isn't as loud as the Thumb, which is also active and doesnt clip.

    my dog is quite growly.... he was always a bit strong willed, but he'll be 10 this summer and he's just becoming a grouch :p

    Nick, lets hear the clips! The last ones put the words in much better perspective... I find all the descriptives I see used for tone confusing.

    Read a dictionary. Get more adjectives besides growly and immense.

    Send me the LX and I'll describe its sound without using the term growly, and I'll post some clips of how it sounds without using an overdriven Sans Amp. Thank you. That is all.
  9. I dunno if my sansamp is actually overdriven. It may be me being paranoid, I dunno. I'll TRY and get some clips, but the damn output level on the spector distorts my sound card on my computer.

    maybe im not understanding your scenario, but how about you unplug your sansamp and see if the bass still "growls"...or if you like why even bother asking questions, don't go lookin to fix what aint broken. i would say yes its the normal tone...
