Immersing into the history and atmosphere of the Spector brand is like entering a mysterious alley located somewhere between Brooklyn streets and New York City traffic jams. Spector brand is exactly there – in the music history of Brooklyn Borough, in the energy of New York, in the passion of Woodstock. This imaginary place – symbolizing what Spector bass guitars represent to us – is a space for craftsmanship, passion, and real beauty. Indeed, Spector basses are beautiful. We are dealing here with 45 years of luthiers work, people who love guitars for their sound, style, and power of expression. Spector creates bass guitars for their owners. The value of their instruments and equipment is not based solely on the quality of products they are made of. Value comes from uniqueness and artistry. Each bass guitar seems to opalesce with a unique energy. It shines.
Creating a Spector bass guitar is like creating a singing sculpture. Are you reminded of Pygmalion myth? Well, very rightly, but Spector creates objects that don’t need to be showered with flowers to make them want to cooperate with your clients. It is enough to love a bass guitar – and Spector bass guitars are adored by the greatest authorities of the 21st-century music scene. Legends reach for these instruments: Aaron Mills (Outkast, Gwen Stefani), Bryan Beller (Joe Satriani), Guy Pratt (Madonna, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson), Ian Hill from Judas Priest. These are just some of the artists officially promoting the Spector. When a new Spector guitar is made, the creators think of it as a craft at all stages of its design. The knowledge of wood and shaping the sound through its selection is the core of the brand.
When your bass sounds as it looks, magic happens. Spector’s bass guitars are a dream – refined in every detail, stunning on the front as well as the back. One would have to pause on every inch of this musical sculpture when describing the details. As Spector’s bass makers say: sometimes you just want to cry when the instruments leave the workshop. This is is uniquely enchanting and distinguishes Spector instruments is the wood. Wood is treated as a pattern, which is a piece of beauty in itself. The color finish – usually very intense – is based exclusively on the natural qualities of the wood from which the bass was made. You can feel the respect for the material of these bass guitars. This is how it is – the instruments are made with sensitivity, unhurriedly, thoughtfully. This is how the real legendary luthiers from Brooklyn work.
