The other day I was in my local Guitar Center, just fiddling around with some basses. And just for the hell of it, I picked up one of those Spector Performance Series (NS-2002B) basses (the low end $349 jobs). Much to my suprise, I really liked it. It actually had a great fell and sounded pretty damn good for a low end, passive bass. My main rig that I play thru now is Musicman stingrays (4 & 5 strings), SWR 750 head with a Goliath III & S.O.B. So, I'm used to playing the good quality stuff but I did suprisingly like this spector. After trying this spector, I plugged in the warwick corvette standard (passive electronics) and I think the spector sounded better. Call me crazy but it did sound pretty damn good. I'm actually thinking of picking up the Spector just for a backup, knock around, practice bass. Any thoughts on these basses? Just thought I'd share this experience with my fellow talk bassers.
