Submitted on the 17th December 2018 by August in Iceland who purchased a  custom Spector Euro bass

Bass arrived today, sounds, looks and plays great. I once had a Euro 5 with EMG DC40s and these Aguilar DCB pickups are much better imo, much better midrange. I also have a USA NS-4 with the DC pickups and although they nail the old school Pantera sound the Aguilars are just much more versatile + with the Darkglass tone capsule I can cut the low mids and have that 90’s sound. But I am really pleased with our business and correspondence and would like to wish you all Happy holidays and new year.

I have searched a lightweight shortscale fretless bass for some time and found my dream bass online on your website. Purchase and delivery was excellent. And this is really a beauty of a bass, great tonal variation, from woody to more modern. Very very happy with this Spector! Buying outside EU VAT free was no problem at all. Great shopping for bassists!

Submitted on the 15th February by Daniel who purchased a Spector Legend Custom 5 bass

When i got Bass Direct Warwick i didn't know what to expect,as soon as i walked in was greeted with great service. i tried out many different 5 string basses in in my price range and ended up with the Spector legend custom 5, wow what a bass for the money. The range of tones from that instrument was great for what i needed (for a busy function band you can dial up a classic tone to a knarly warwick type tone amazing! needless to say its perfect for the work i do thanks mark and crew!

Spector have been making bass guitars for famous artists since 1977. Since then Stuart Spector's select team of designers has grown in stature, often in close collaboration with many world-famous performers. Gene Simmons (KISS) commissioned several Brooklyn Era SB-1\'99 basses from Stuart in the late 1970's. Some of the modifications included a special gloss black paint job with white binding along the sides of the body. Stuart shaved down the normally bulbous horns of the SB-1 into points. In 1982 Sting favoured Spector's NS-2, and relied upon it while out on the Police's Synchronicity Tour. The NS-2 was also the weapon of choice for Jack Bruce (Cream), who favoured the instrument during his 80s solo career.

The Spector range has since become extensive and varied. In response to fans constant demand for 'a bass like theirs', Spector collaborated closely with several leading artists to create the Spector Signature range. These basses have a distinct engineering and performance pedigree - the roster includes such legends as Jason Newsted, formerly of Metallica, Ian Hill (Judas Priest), who has been playing Spector Bass guitars since 1985, and Rex Brown. From his earliest days with Pantera and later with Down, Rex has been a loyal Spector Bass player and supporter.

At the winter NAMM 2014 Spector © debuted the first of its Helium™ Series, NS™ and Forte™ basses.

These instruments utilize a unique combination of woods to achieve a great sounding bass that weighs in at a total of 7 lbs 12 oz.

The top of this neck thru body instruments wings are carved from quarter sawn sycamore obtained from salvaged logs of trees which have blown down in our local forests near Woodstock NY. The back of the body wings is reclaimed redwood that was originally harvested in California between 75 and 100 years ago and used for the construction of water tanks which are sited on top of office buildings in NYC. They have been filled with the purest NYC drinking water for all those years which continuously permeates the redwood. This soaking with the water helps to wash out all of the sugar in the cells of the wood so that it dries more completely and in a similar way to the method used traditionally for curing violin wood in Europe.

Spector Forte Basses

The final Helium™ element is a Spector © locking bridge made of aluminum with brass saddles.

The instruments possess a full warm bottom end with a unique bloom to the attack of the notes.

This construction is available in our USA NS Neck-Thru Series™ in our GrayBurst color in either matte or gloss finish, and also in our USA Forte Series™ basses in our trans black stain matte finish.

Each bass will include a special Certificate Of Authenticity signed by Stuart Spector.

Las Vegas, NV -- Spector and Five Finger Death Punch bassist Chris Kael have

collaborated on the design and creation of the Chris Kael CK-4 Signature

Model Bass Guitar.  The instrument features a "Neck-Thru the body

construction," which is carbon fibre reinforced in 3-Piece rock maple.  The

fingerboard is rosewood, designed with 24 frets.  Alongside solid maple body

wings, the instrument features a EMG(r) BT(tm) Tone Circuit and EMG(r)

P/J(tm) active pickups.  The model will be available in matte black or matte

white with black hardware.  A Knuckle-Head / brass knuckle plate in black is

designed for the white model, while the feature is chrome for the black

model.  The plate is removable.

Kael has performed with Spector basses for many years.  He shares: "Having

played Spector long before joining Five Finger Death Punch, I am extremely

happy to now be in a position to collaborate with them on the design of the

new Chris Kael CK-4 Signature Model.  Combining the playability and feel of

Spector with the tone of the EMG P/J pickups and the attitude of the brass

knuckle bridge, this is the bass I've always wanted.  One man.  One beard.

One bass.  Spector, Son."
