Can't chose between a spector forte x or a Warwick corvette
Flip a coin.
buy both and return/sell the one you don't like.
New? The Forte X. Used? The Corvette, and you keep the $1500 difference in your pocket.
Did you get a chance to play them both?
I've played both and I like the warwicks sound and weight but the Spector has a better neck and tuners
2 completely different basses. Really think about what you need In a bass. The Forte X is not for everyone. I love mine, but it has it's limitations. On the other hand, I believe the Corvette comes as a bolt on only. Totally different.
+1. Apples and oranges.
I play thrash nd death so.......
then take warwick, and get use to the neck and chance tuners
The Spector fits that bill much better. You'll be lost in the mix with the wick. The Spector growl will cut through nicely.
In the correct price range, they are both fantastic. Personally for me, I would go with the most comfortable playing bass and EQ the sound to fit my tastes. You can change EQ, and pickups. However you really can't change how much you like a neck profile on a warwick or spector.
Being a Warwick fanboy, I must say Warwick.
I always thought Warwick was kind of cheesy for taking the design of the Spector NS-4 and calling it a Streamer. So Spector.
This is totally in your opinion
Says the guy with a Spector in his avatar
Warwicks have no problems cutting through in a mix. I've owned 5 different models and have never has an issue with that.
That's an asinine comment if I've ever heard one. The warwick presence is found in a different part of the of the mix, but cuts through as well as any Spector I've heard.
I find warwicks can cut a little TOO well sometimes.... Im scooping the mids on my Thumb 5 while I boost them with my Euro 5
Having owned both Spector and Warwick basses, no. I had to crank the mids on my amp (which was mid-heavy to begin with) just to get the Spector to cut, which was why I sold it after only owning it for a few months.
I say the Warwick, you can easily find a Corvette used and save a bunch of money. Growl for days.
