    Hey!

    Somebody that plays a Spector NS-2000Q6?

    I have been playing 4-stringed bass for a while now and I think that a 6-stringed would fit my style. Have looked for a couple of basses now and the Spector NS-2000Q6 seems to be really good.

    How is the NS-2000Q6?

    Thanks for answers!
     
  2. I have one in Amberburst. Awesome bass for the money. I started with a five and moved right into this and it was a welcome change. Great thick tone, unmatched by any other bass in it's price range IMHO. I play with Smith Rock Master Medium Strings and it's a nice darker sound, bright where you need it though. Thinking about upgrading the pickups and taking out the frets from the 12th up.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I have one as well and I like it quite a bit. I would recommend upgrading the electronics to 18v, though, as it can sound thin otherwise.

    It plays very well (has a comfortable neck) and it is well made. My only beef with it is that the tone can be too "clicky" for my tastes, thanks to the EMG-HZ and/or EMG preamp.

    Hey, swap out those HZs for a DC in the neck spot and a CS at the bridge, you'll be much happier!

    Not knowing a whole lot about EMGs, I'm wondering if those are active pickups (vs. the passive HZs). If so, wouldn't I also have to swap out the preamp?

    no...the preamp should be an EMG BT, which works perfectly...and you can use the same 9v...though I suggest adding a second 9 volt battery IN SERIES (not parallel) for extra headroom...

    Good to know - thanks Rev! You've offered lots of good advice on these boards and it is much appreciated!

    I did the 18-volt upgrade a few months ago, so I'll look at the pickups you recommended.

    Thanks again!
