    German made Warwick Streamer Standard or Korean Spector ns2000 (not Q). Assuming same cost to acquire.... which do you choose?
     
  2. well i was faced with that same decision in april and i went w/ the spector. because its manufactured in korea you get more band for your buck. also after playing both extensivly i feel i like the spector sound more than the sound of wood. the 2 basses may look similar but they have completly different sounds. the spector is more modern sounding, some people think its too sterile due to the emgs in it but i like that sound. and the warwick has the trademark warwick growl due i think to the type of wood on the neck. the spector also has better sustain probably due to the fact that its a neck thru. both are great basses but i would definatly try both out first to see what one suits your style best.
     
  3. I'd say go for the warwick. I've got a Streamer Standard, and I like it a lot. It's not perfect, but it's a good bass. I really don't like the Spector sound (it's really thin and light, IMO) and the Warwick has a MUCH heavier sound (much better for most of my music). I haven't really messed around with Spectors much, so I can't speak as to their versitility, but the SS is surprisingly versitile for a passive bass.
