Help with buying a new bass

Ok i want to buy a 5 string bass....before i just had 1 bass so I dont know much what is good and what is not....I want to play death metal...so i need the cannibal corpse sound or something like that....and what is better humbuckers or single?passive or active pick ups?...and the prize should be around 660 € but I dont know how much dollars that is...Im thinking maybe for a Peavey grind or cirrus...but you tell me whats good...I also like Spector,Ibanez and Warwick basses

Around 660 bucks? Then you'll really have to go for CORT or IBANEZ, not a lot out on the market that can compete with those two on that price-level. Scratch that, nothing out on the market that can compete with those two from 500-700.


Try getting your hands on a second hand Ibanez 5-string BTB bass (BTB 505/605/705) or a Cort B6 (or second hand A6). Good bang for the buck, especially for the Corts in my opinion, got sweet pickups and setup, always.


Peavey isn't that good at all.

As for Spectors, they'll be way out of your price range.
Warwicks the same, but they're WAY better than Spectors fuck you spector i have a warwick sukc my diiiiiik

Then you should definately go for the Spectoreventhoughwarwicksarebetter, seems like the best deal.
Do know that Spectors usually come with brutal neckdive so be warned.


Any other models in the store?

Well I'd go for the spector then, even though I hate EMG-pickups but that's a personal thing.

Ibanez's are great mid-range models (even in their +1000€ class, they're always "very good" but not great), whereas Spector are good high-range models.

But anyway, test both the Ibanez and the Spector then. Test EVERYTHING in the store, up to the point where it annoys them. Only way to find out which bass is THE bass for you.

Warwick owners..pfffffft!


I own a Spector Rebop DLX EX and really enjoy it. It sounds great and feels great. I can agree though with wolf's neck-dive comment. I had it professionally set-up when I bought it, still had lots of fret buzz, so I set it up myself and the action had to be quite high to accommodate my playing style(aggressive lolz).
