HI! Át the moment I'm seriously thinking about buying a Spector NS5CR. But I'm also regarding that I could buy a NS5CR-HZ. This bass is supposed to be a NS5CR eith the HZ-Pickups. I would do this to put Barts or Lane Poors in it. U see, I`m not sure if the EMGs would fit my sound perfectly, 'cause i heard they sound kind of processed. But i need a clear, bright and opened sound, that's very responsive and "alive". It should bark at me. And that's exactly what my expiriences with Barts are. So would it be worth doing this, and could the Preamp of the NS5R-HZ (is ist really a "normal" EMG-preamp) handle hotter Pickups ? Thank you Johannes PS: A sound i really,really like is the bass of "too young to die" by Jamiroquai. You know what I mean, do you !?
