What we say:
At A Glance:
The Spector Bantam 5 Short Scale Bass Black Cherry Gloss brings you a unique beast - the extended range of a 5 string beast, and the slinky, easy playability of short scale length!
Like all Spector basses, the Spector Bantam 5 boasts fantastic build quality with stunning materials, features and top drawer electronics. This includes a Chambered European Alder body with Figured Maple top, and that gorgeous curved Spector NS style body profile, coupled with EMG 40DC Pickups with the EMG BTC Pre-Amp. The nice, thick 3pc maple neck gives you rock solid reliability, and so too does the Spector Lightweight Locking Bridge and Sealed Die-Cast
Short scale basses are entirely their own beast, with a uniquely fun, growly tubbiness you just don't find from that longer, traditional 'California-designed' scale length. Combined with the extra low range of the 5-string and the punch and clarity of those superb EMG pickups and preamp, you can't go wrong.
Features We Love:
Shorter scale length basses are entirely their own beast, separate from the more standard 34" or longer scale length basses on the market, with a tubbiness and growl to their sound that carries over to this stunning 5-string beast. Think Tina Weymouth, Tame Impala, or The Cribs.
This bass is equipped with a 5 string set of EMG 40DC Soapbar Humbuckers, paired with the excellent EMG BTC preamp system, giving you intuitive, powerful tone shaping controls to give you everything from a warm groove sound, to a cutting slap tone, to some seriously aggressive sounds - especially on that low 5th string!
Top Drawer Materials
This isn't a gimmicky little axe, and it ain't a basic entry level bass either. The Bantam 5 sports some serious quality body woods, with its Chambered European Alder back and absolutely stunning Figured Maple top.
