the hard to find but killer NS2000's
I had one in blue. I put a MM114 preamp in it. Killer sounding bass!
I put a import HAZ in this one with old pups . It's a monster .
WOW, that is almost an encyclopedia, I need more time to listen to all those. Well done appreciate it.
Like Brad said, this is like an Encyclopedia of every possible combination. This must've taken you years to compile ! So many samples. This is a MUST for people like me who need a little direction in order to make a choice.
Ok, after that, I don't think I need to hear "Them Bones" and "Enter Sandman" for a long while .
I think the EMG bts sounds the best. You need one with the BQC preamp
What.... I just found you have about 1,000,000 more samples lol lol
That's why I made the comment above, lol.
Before I started this collection I had the BQC installed on several Spectors - and tbh I found it’s a very dull pre.
Judging on other opinions here I may be the only one who dislikes the BQC . But hey, just for the sake of completeness I could do a record with BQC again. Still have one at home.
Lol. If you listened to that samples a lot it’s kinda like preamp waterbording.
Thanks. Take your time, ask away any questions.
It probably started 1-2 years ago. Months in between nothing happening.
It started to be more the more I learned about available preamp and pickups and got better in installing them. First few swaps were horror, always mixed up wires.
Let’s not forget: although the pickups and pres are able to bend the sound, in some cases you can hear that the overall bass sound remains the same. That goes especially for my 40th Anniversary Euro. Wood does play a role.
Anyone had a chance to play a Eurobolt 5 string yet?
I'm curious what the neck profile is like - thick, chunky, thin, narrow?
If you have, and could compare the neck to a more common bass, like Ibanez, Fender, etc, I'd appreciate it! Considering one, but can't seem to find one local that I can get my hands on.
That's really interesting and I agree. If i'm not mistaken the 40th Anniversary Euros were solid flame maple wings? Would you consider it to have a more classic 80's Spector tone?
Yes they are. Red ones came with EMGs and blue I believe with Bartolinis. Both had a Tonepump.
Unfortunately don’t have any US Spector. Only 80s model I have that comes close is my NS-2A. I can say this particular Euro has a lot of growl.
That is a awesome looking bass! Red and black together is my favorite
I couldn't pass this one up, I go crazy for highly distinctive wood grains & this doesn't
disappoint. And nor does the sound, nice & growly. EMG Hz pickups, which are great,
however, my only reservation is the EMG BTS pre amp, which I feel is a bit lackluster
& doesn't offer any startling sound improvements, so been running it flat. Probably
will go for a Haz clone...SNC, what do you think ?
Weighs in at about just under 8 lbs, but because of it's solid build, it feels heavier when
I pick it up. Neck is top notch & the 35" is no problem. The small body makes it very comfortable when playing standing up.
Thanks go to @AB Nate for pointing this one out to me, I had been looking for something special, for a good while.
Just made a brass nut for it, I always think that adds a bit of class.
Overall, very happy. Down & dirty quick pics.
SNC in a Zeebop is a swell idea
Zebops are great. I’d try pickups first. My experience is that the BTS is great and that Rebops generally work great also with passive pickups. EMG HZs are pretty dull cause they lack highs. Check out eith Aguilars DCB (expensive) or Seymour Duncan Passive Soapbars.
