Merry Christmas Spector Club!!!
Happy Holidays to everyone!
2012 seems to be a good Spector year for a lot of us here, I hope that many more will be purchasing new Spectors this coming year!
There is a very good chance I will be getting a special order rebop 5 in 2012. What do you guys think of a blue black burst finish on it?
Thank goodness there's no accumulated snow here
Merry Christmas my Spector Brothers and Sisters! Here's to a great 2012 here on the Talk Bass Spector Forum.
Merry Christmas to my Spector Family
Merry Christmas to my SPECTOR ® family!
I scored big!
Stuart.. er.. Santa came to my house and left me a lot of cool SPECTOR ® stuff...
A long sleeve shirt
A short sleeve shirt
A comfort strap
2 bumper stickers
Dr neon green strings (they'll look Killer on my black Ian Hill!)
A new Alexis Sklarevski " the slap bass program" on dvd
Very nice! My first Spector and comfort strap were kind of "early Christmas presents", but I got a cool new Spector poster for my room. (The one with the NS-4 that says "The revenge of all those trees that fell in the forest and were never heard." Love that.)
How are those straps? Do they help with 11 lb Spector's? also, how are Spector strings?
The Spector Comfort strap is amazing, I love it
Got me a shirt and some bumper stickers for Christmas
Here and watching
I don't know about 11 lbs, I'd guess mine is only around 9, but the strap sure is the most comfortable strap I've ever owned. I guess the bass came with Spector strings, and I think they're pretty nice. Honestly I don't know if they're stainless steel or nickel, might be stainless because they don't smell like nickel... I'm no string expert, but they feel and sound pretty good, though I'm probably due to change them.
Speaking of strings, has anyone tried Circle K strings on their Spectors? That balanced tension thing sounds cool and I've only heard good things about them, so I think my next set of strings will be Circle Ks.
Blue black burst sounds fantastic!
Very nice Trace!
I love that saying!!! I'd like one of those posters!
I love my SPECTOR Comfort strap!
LimaGuy would be the expert on the strings.
Congrats, stagewear complete
Nice Trace!!!! I was thinking of getting a long sleeve shirt, how is the size compared to the short sleeve shirt? Around the same cut/size? also is it the same brand of shirt?
Ice, That is what I call a Forte prepared Cabinet.
I have never tried Circle K strings. Are you planning on drop tuning or standard tuning? They can be a bit expensive. There may be alot cheaper route to go. PM if you have any string questions.
If they are the strings that came on the bass from Spector I would say they are nickel.
If they are older Nickel strings they may not smell anylonger.
Steel strings are usually darker looking while Nickel would be a lighter but it would be hard to tell unless you saw them next to each other as a reference.
Nickels can also leave a black mark on your finger tips.
