Which of the basses do you preffer and why?
Can all 3 basses produce a warm mellow tone?
The Spector can definitly get the mellow tone, a Flea would be able to with the right EQ'ing, and if I'm mistaken, the Q4 has a naturally very trebley tone.
I could be wrong though.
The Euro 4 can give me pretty much any tone I require.... and is the best value for money...
But then maybe I'm biased....
The Q4 isn't trebley at all. They can be, but they have a very warm defined tone, especially with Barts. They are very even as well due to the carbon fiber neck.
I've heard nothing but good comments about the Spector basses.
I used to have a Flea bass years ago..
I would not have described its tone as either warm or mellow..
Thats a pickle, all three are really amazing basses! I'd tend to sit with the Modulus basses overall though, but this might not be the case for you!
In order of ability to be warm & mellow:
1 - Spector
2 - Q4
3 - Flea4
All 3 of them are capable of being warm, but the Spector will be the easiest one to get a tone like that. The Q4 wouldn't be too bad either. I would never have believed that a Flea could be warm until I heard Stefan Lessard from DMB playing it. But I still think that if you're going for warm and mellow, why get a bass that is naturally aggressive sounding? I would go for the Spector.
I love the warm tone I can get from my flea, but it can be hard to tame for some situations. If you've enver actually had some time to mess around with one first hand I'd stay away from it until you have.
