A very good bass, tame ...

Michaël M., 23.06.2014
I have owned this bass for several years.
It is equipped with a Tone Pump of first generation (this point was confirmed to me by Spector soon after the sending of a photo).

The many opinions on the net shared: we like it or not!

For my part, I have long enjoyed with a small reserve: its very deaf on the Si and the Tone Pump v1 does not do in finesse at the level of correction.

I just decided to replace it with a pre-amp with eq 3 bands EMG BQC System (made to go with the EMG 40DC, among others): it is day and night !!!
I may have lost a bit of the "big drooling bass" side that some people like at Spector but I've gained in clarity (including on the Si !!), the tuning palette offers much more variation than My old Tone Pump.

Comfortable instrument to play, manufacture and finish of excellent quality, almost no need to tune (unless transport and frequent temperature variations) but in my house, it easily passes several months without moving more than 1 / 10th of a tone .

The icing on the cake: a question? Send an email to Spector via their website; They take the time to answer you :-)

A pearl all done ..

Legato, 23.05.2011
Model made in Czech Republic
Maple Driver's Handle 3 pieces, 24 squares
Alder body
"Schaller" golden mechanics
Active EMG microphones, preamp "Tone Pump"
Spector golden bridge
1 volume for each microphone + one low and one high

Very good ergonomics, comfortable handle, the action is adjusted bass original which gives us a really accurate touch. Access to the treble is quite easy but the last box remains difficult to reach. The weight of the bass is rather substantial.
This instrument allows you to play in many registers. I use it personally to play in funk styles, fusion, sometimes jazz to reggae and especially rock, finger and slap, it sounds of hell in some context.

For me it is a very well studied bass. An irreproachable design that largely justifies its price.
