Spector NS Pulse I 4 ja Markbass MB58R -sarja tarjoavat laatua ilman kompromisseja

Kun minulle tarjottiin mahdollisuutta koeajella paria hienoa uutta tuotetta Spector Bass Guitarsilta ja Markbassilta, tartuin siihen tietysti molemmin käsin.

Spectorin tuore NS Pulse I-sarja sijoituu pari askelta ylöspäin yhtiön Legend- ja Performer-sarjoista. Siinä yhdistyvät eteläkorealainen käsityötaito muutamaan ylelliseen ominaisuuteen ja kauniisti hiekkapuhallettu runko kahdella eri värivaihtoehdoilla.

Italialainen Markbass on bassovahvistinvalmistaja, joka tunnetaan kevyistä ja kompakteista vahvistinpäistä ja kaiutinkaapeistaan. Markbassin upouusi MB58R-sarja (”R” tarkoittaa ”Revolution”) on keskittynyt useiden erilaisten kaiutinkaappien ympärille. Nämä kaapit on rakennettu uudella ja ainutlaatuisella tavalla, mikä edelleen auttaa vähentämään niiden painoa ja tekee niistä myös lähes täysin kierrätettäviä.

Lisäksi Markbass on esitellyt tähän sarjaan uuden version Little Mark -vahvistinpäästään, nimeltään Little Mark 58R. Little Mark 58R:ssä on ympäristöystävällinen komposiittikotelo ja uusi säätimien asettelu, mikä tekee vahvistimesta entistä kevyemmän ja helpompi käyttää.

Spectorin NS Pulse I 4 (1.149 €) käyttää Ned Steinbergerin (kyllä, se headless basson keksijä) alkuperäistä, erittäin ergonomista kaarevaa runkomuotoilua. Pulse I -sarjan tapauksessa runko on valmistettu korkealaatuisesta saarnipuusta.

Pultattu kaula – kuudella erillisellä ruuvilla ja alusprikoilla – on kolme pitkä palaa lämpökäsiteltyä vaahteraa. Macassar eebenpuuotelaudassa on 24 keskikokoista otelautaa.

Pulse I -sarja tarjoaa kaksi hiekkapuhalettua värivaihtoehtoa:

Testisoitin on viimeistelty Charcoal Grey -värityksellä, jossa harmaa runko yhdistyy mustiin puusyihin. Toista viimeistelyä kutsutaan Cinder Rediksi, ja siinä on musta runko punaisilla syykuvioilla.

Lavan etupuolella on rungon viimeistelyä vastaava saarniviilu, sekä kuuluisa Stuart Spector Design -upotus. Basson mustat virittimet ovat nykyaikaista suljettua sorttia.

Spectorin oma tukevasti tehty talla tuo soundiin rutkasti sustainea.

Spector NS Pulse I 4:n mikkivalinta on aktiivinen EMG PJ -setti.

Spectorin Tone Pump Jr.:n esivahvistimessa on kaksi yksittäistä äänenvoimakkuuden säädintä – yksi kummallekin mikrofonille – sekä basso- ja diskanttitaajuuskorjaimet (vain boostia).

NS Pulse I 4 on kevyt basso, joka sopii vartaloasi kuin nakutettu, rungon loivan kaarevuuden ja ylimääräisen rintakehän viisteen ansiosta.

Kaula tuntuu erittäin hoikalta ja nopealta. Suhteellisen ohut, pyöristetty kaulaprofiili yhdistettynä testibasson erinomaiseen setuppiin luo vaivattoman soittotuntuman. Tämä bassokitara ei koskaan seiso musiikin tekemisen tiellä.

Spector-basson akustinen ääni on täynnä puun lämpöä pienellä annoksella diskantin hohtoa. EMG-mikit ja Spectorin Tone Pump Jr. -esivahvistin tarjoavat erinomaisen valikoiman bassoääniä, jotka kattavat kaikki musiikkityylilajit, joita tavallisesti soitetaan sähköbassolla.

****

Upouusi Markbass Little Mark 58R (612 €) on ympäristöystävällinen, superkevyt (vain 2 kg) 500/300 watin vahvistinnuppi, joka on valmistettu erityisesti sopimaan yhteen firmann MB58R-kaiutinkaappisarjan kanssa.

Vaikka Little Mark 58R säilyttää kaikki tavallisen Little Markin loistavat ominaisuudet – kuten nelikaistaisen taajuuskorjaimen, jossa on ylimääräinen, jalkakytkittävä Mid-Scoop-ominaisuus ja Old School -säädin – etu- ja takapaneelien asettelu on vaihdettu 58R-mallissa.

Kaikki säätimet ja sisään- ja ulostulot – kaiutinliittimiä lukuun ottamatta – on sijoitettu etupaneeliin nopeaa ja helppoa käyttöä varten. Tämän vuoksi etupaneelissa on nyt enemmän säätimiä ja liittimiä kuin aikaisemmin, mutta se ei kuitenkaan tunnu liian täyteen ahdettuna. Kaikki on helposti löydettävissä ja sijoittelu on looginen.

Little Mark 58R:n tuuletin on rittävän hiljainen vakavaan studiokäyttöön.

****

Markbass MB58 102P (ylhäällä; 612 €) ja MB58 102Pure (alhaalla; 716 €) jakavat saman vallankumouksellisen kotelorakenteen, mutta eroavat kaiuttimien teknisistä ominaisuuksista.

Markbass käyttää kierrätettävää ja ympäristöystävällistä polystyreenlaatua kaikkien MB58R-kaappiensa perusmateriaalina.

Haluaisin aleviivata, että kyseessä ei ole tavallinen, helposti murtuva ”styroksia”, vaan erittäin kova, mutta kevyt materiaali, joka on samankaltainen kuin se, joka on käytössä mm. autojen etu- ja takapuskureissa.

MB58R 102P on sarjan edullisin 2 x 10″ -kaappi, jossa on pari keraamista kaiutinta ja pietsodiskanttitorvi. Kaappi painaa hieman yli 12 kiloa.

MB58R 102Pure -kaapissa taas käytetään kaksi neodyymikaiutinta, sekä Hi-Fi-diskanttielementti. Tämä kaappi painaa vain 9,8 kiloa.

Molemmissa kaapeissa kaikkien neljän sivun keskiosassa on musta mattomateriaali. Kaapeissa on suuret sivukahvat, ja molemmissa kaapeissa on kaksi settiä kumijalkoja – yksi satsi kaapin pystysuoraan ja toinen vaakasuoraan käyttöön.

Molemmissa testatuissa MB58R-kaapeissa on refleksiaukot takana. Takapaneelissa on pari Speakon-liitintä ja kolme kytkintä diskanttikaiuttimen säätämiseen.

Ääniensä puolesta sekä 102P että 102Pure tarjoavat kuuluisan Markbass-potkun, ja vain pienet yksityiskohdat erottavat ne. Markbass MB58R 102P on tästä parista se hieman aggressiivisempi kaappi, jolla on kuitenkin suhteellisen neutraali ääni (parhaassa mahdollisessa mielessä). MB58R 102Pure taas saman potkun, mutta lisää soundiin silkkisen diskantin, sekä hieman enemmän lämpöä ala-middleen.

Carlos Santana sanoin ”hyvä soitin tai vahvistin ei anna sinulle yhtään selittelyn varaa”. Jos soundisi ei ole hyvä, syytä ei silloin kannata etsiä soittolaitteista.

Tässä suhteessa Spector NS Pulse I 4, Markbass Little Mark 58R sekä MB58R 102P ja 102Pure -kaapit läpäisevät tämän testin loistavasti.

Spector NS Pulse -basson soitettavuus on ensiluokkaista, eikä basso jättää myöskään soundillisesti minkäänlaista toivomisen varaa. Markbassin Little Mark 58R -nuppi tarjoaa – kummallakin kaapilla – loistavan full range -soundin, vaikka kaikki säätimet olisivat neutraaliasennoissaan. Tämän ansiosta EQ-osastoa voi käyttää vapaasti hienosäätämään omaa soundisi – tai ratkaisemaan keikkapaikan akustisia ongelmia.

Voin vain suositella, että kävisit itse kokeilemassa Spector NS Pulse -bassot ja Markbassin uutta MB58R-sarjaa lähimmästä soitinmyymälästä.

Spector’s NS Pulse I 4 and Markbass’ brand-new MB58R Series make for a quality pairing

When I was offered the chance to test drive a couple of cool new products from Spector Bass Guitars and Markbass, I grabbed it with both hands, of course.

Spector’s recent NS Pulse I Series is a couple of steps up from the company’s Legend and Performer ranges. It combines South Korean craftsmanship with a few upmarket features with a couple of very tasty and tactile sandblasted body finishes.

Italy’s Markbass is a bass amp maker known for its lightweight and compact amp heads and speaker cabinets. Markbass’ brand-new MB58R Series (the ”R” stands for ”Revolution”) is centred around a whole range of different speaker cabinets. These cabinets are built in a very unique way, which further helps cut down their weight, and also makes them almost fully recyclable.

Additionally Markbass has introduced a matching new version of their Little Mark amp head, called the Little Mark 58R. The Little Mark 58R sports an eco-friendly composite housing and a new control layout, making the amp even lighter in weight and easier to use.

****

The Spector NS Pulse I 4 (current price in Finland: 1,149 €) uses Ned Steinberger’s (yes, he of headless bass fame) original, highly ergonomic curved body design. In the Pulse I Series’ case the body is made of highly figured ash.

The bolt-on neck – using six separate screws and washers – is a three-strip heat-treated maple affair. The Macassar ebony fretboard is home to 24 medium-sized frets.

The Pulse I Series comes in two sandblasted ash finishes:

Our review sample comes in a finish called charcoal grey, which combines a grey body with black wood grain. The second finish is called cinder red, and it sports a black body with red grain.

The headstock sports a matching ash veneer, the famous Stuart Spector Design inlay, and four modern black machine heads.

Spector’s chunky bridge is known as a sustain monster.

The Spector NS Pulse I 4 comes with an active PJ-set from EMG Pickups.

Spector’s Tone Pump Jr. preamp features two individual volume controls – one for each pickup – as well as boost-only controls for bass and treble EQ.

The NS Pulse I 4 is a lightweight bass that fits your body like the proverbial glove, thanks to its gentle body curvature and the additional ribcage chamfer.

The neck feels very slender and fast. The relatively thin, rounded neck profile, combined with the review sample’s excellent set-up, makes for an effortless playing feel. This is definitely a bass guitar that does not stand in your way.

The Spector’s acoustic tone is very woody with a nice bit of top-end sheen. The EMG pickups and Spector’s Tone Pump Jr. preamp offer an excellent range of bass sounds, covering the whole range of musical genres you’d normally play on an electric bass.

****

The brand-new Markbass Little Mark 58R (current price in Finland: 612 €) is an eco-friendly, super-lightweight (only 2 kg) 500/300 watts amp head, made especially to complement the company’s MB58R range of speaker cabinets.

Although the Little Mark 58R retains all of the brilliant features of the regular Little Mark – like the four-band EQ with additional, footswitchable ”Mid-Scoop” feature and the ”Old School” control – the layout of the front and back panels has been changed for the 58R model.

All controls and in- and outputs – save for the speaker connectors – have been placed on the front panel for quick and easy access. This makes the front panel more ”busy”, but doesn’t make it feel crammed. Everything is easily accessible and logically placed.

The Little Mark 58R’s fan is more than quiet enough for serious studio use.

****

The Markbass MB58 102P (top; 612 €) and MB58 102Pure (bottom; 716 €) share the same revolutionary cabinet construction, but differ in the detailed speaker specifications.

Markbass uses a recyclable and eco-friendly type of polystyrene as the basic material for all its MB58R cabinets.

Make no mistake, this isn’t your bog standard and easy-to-dent styrofoam, but rather something very sturdy, not unlike what the car industry uses to fill front and back bumpers.

The MB58R 102P is the most affordable 2 x 10″ cabinet, sporting a pair of ceramic magnet-driven speakers and a piezo tweeter. It weighs in at just a tad over 12 kilogrammes.

The MB58R 102Pure sports neodymium-powered speakers and a Hi-Fi tweeter. This cabinet weighs only 9.8 kilogrammes.

On both cabinets the middle part of all four sides features a black carpet material. There are large side handles sunk into the cabinets, and both cabinets sport two sets of rubber feet – one set for vertical, and one for horizontal placement.

Both MB58R cabinets tested are rear-ported designs. The back panel comes with a pair of Speakon connectors, and three switches for tweeter attenuation.

In terms of their sound, both the 102P and 102Pure offer that famous Markbass punch, with only small details dividing them. The Markbass MB58R 102P is the slightly more aggressive cabinet of the pair, displaying a relatively neutral sound (in the best possible sense). The MB58R 102Pure retains all of the punch, but adds a more silky top end and more warmth in the low-mids.

****

To paraphrase Carlos Santana, the hallmark of high-quality musical equipment is that it doesn’t give you any excuses. If your playing and/or your sound isn’t up to snuff, it isn’t down to your instrument or amp.

In this respect the Spector NS Pulse I 4, the Markbass Little Mark 58R, and the MB58R 102P and 102Pure cabinets pass this review with flying colours.

The Spector NS Pulse plays like a dream and offers a plethora of useable sounds. Paired with any of the two cabinets the Markbass Little Mark 58R offers a fantastic full-range bass sound with all EQ-settings (and the Old School control) in neutral. This means you can use the EQ to fine-tune your sound and/or to deal with problematic frequencies in a venue, and not for masking any possible inherent problems with your rig.

I had so much fun playing the Spector NS Pulse I 4 through the new Markbass rig, that I can only recommend you do the same.

Review: Squier Affinity Bronco Bass & Höfner Ignition Violin Bass SE

This is a slightly shorter version of an article in Finnish published at Rockway.fi.

****

In 2021 short-scale basses are often seen as less desirable, as instruments purely for beginners, but not for ”serious” use.

Back in the Fifties, Sixties and much of the Seventies, a wealth of great music has been recorded by bassists playing short-scale basses. To some degree this was out of pure necessity, as many guitar manufacturers didn’t regard the electric bass guitar as a serious instrument in the early days. Those companies simply used slight redesigns of their guitar models with longer necks and different pickups, in order to have something to sell to the public. Gibson, for example, only released its first long-scale basses – the Thunderbird II and IV models – in 1963, while Gretsch and Guild stuck to their ”modified guitars” well into the 1970s.

Other companies designed their short-scale basses from the ground up:

In 1956 a German luthier called Walter Höfner developed a comfortably light and compact semi-acoustic bass with a violin-shaped body. In keeping with the Höfner Company’s nomenclature this new bass received the rather uninspiring name Höfner 500/1.

This bass might have become a mere footnote in history, had it not been for a young British musician, who ordered a left-handed 500/1, while working in a nightclub in Hamburg (West Germany) with his band. This young bass player was, of course, none other than Paul McCartney, and the Beatles’ global fame from 1963 onwards catapulted the Höfner 500/1 right into the limelight.

Paul McCartney still uses his iconic Höfner bass.
Tina Weymouth (Talking Heads; Tom Tom Club) is regularly seen with her Höfner 500/1, as well as with Höfner 500/2 Club Basses (as in this picture).

The Fender Company, whose founder Leo Fender was the father of the electric bass, introduced its first short-scale bass in 1966. The Fender Mustang was based on their legendary Precision Bass, and was meant as a companion to the company’s Mustang Guitar.

Most classic Status Quo hits were recorded by Alan Lancaster playing his Mustang Bass.
The Rolling Stones’ original bass player Bill Wyman used his Mustang Bass on stage between 1968 and 1971.

Regardless of their affordable price tags, the models in this review are straight descendants of the Höfner 500/1 and Fender Mustang models.

****

When the Fender Musicmaster Bass was released in 1971 it was Fender’s most affordable electric bass, making it an ideal choice for beginners, music classes, and – in the late 70s and early 80s – for Punk or New Wave bands. The original Musicmaster Bass used the same body as the Mustang, but sported a redesigned scratchplate and bridge, cheaper machine heads, and a covered guitar (!) pickup.

The Squier Affinity Bronco Bass (current price in Finland around 200 €) has been the brand’s most-affordable bass for many years, until the very recent arrival of the Mini-P Bass, which is a few euros cheaper.

The Indonesian Bronco Bass is clearly based on the Musicmaster Bass from the Seventies:

The Bronco Bass sports the same Mustang-style body, and shares its predecessor’s simple, two-saddle bridge, as well as the 19-fret bolt-on neck. The new scratchplate design, which is clearly Strat/Precision-inspired is much prettier, though.

The satin finished maple neck is a one-piece affair, with the frets directly installed into its curved front, and it offers easy truss rod access next to the top nut. The tuning machines are improved versions of the originals.

Squier’s websites aren’t especially clear on the body material; some places state it is made from agathis, while others mention poplar. Be this as it may, our review sample comes finished in a beautiful Torino Red gloss finish. The bass is also very light in weight.

The single-ply scratchplate holds a powerful ceramic Stratocaster pickup, and the master volume and tone controls.

The quality of workmanship on the reviewed Squier Bronco Bass is simply amazing. I’m old enough to remember affordable instruments from the late Seventies, and this little bass is simply in a completely different league. Everything is clean and crisp. The neck profile is a very comfortable ”C” and the fretwork is very good. The playability of the bass is buttery and there are no annoying mechanical buzzes or rattles. You could basically grab this bass and do a gig.

Due to the very spartan bridge the Bronco’s intonation is never completely spot-on in the higher reaches of the fretboard, but I feel I can live with the small compromises required.

What the Squier Bronco offers is great playability, a healthy acoustic tone, and a surprisingly balanced and full-bodied performance from its single-coil guitar pickup. The Bronco Bass sounds like a ”real” bass played through a quality bass amp.

A German Höfner 500/1 ”Mersey”.

Höfner’s Violin Basses are currently produced in three model ranges:

The Made-in-Germany range comprises several vintage reissues, reliced basses, and an ecologically-conscious Green Line-version.

Höfner’s mid-price range is called the Contemporary Series (HCT), and it is produced in China. The Contemporary Violin Bass models come equipped with genuine German pickups, but differ slightly in construction by adding a feedback-reducing centre block inside the body.

The most affordable instruments are the Höfner Ignition models (HI). These instruments are also made in China, but offer less painstakingly exact recreations of Höfner’s most famous models.

The Höfner Ignition Violin Bass SE (current price in Finland approx. 350 €) is the newest update of the McCartney-inspired Ignition-version of the Höfner, which adds a few features that have been requested by many fans:

The body’s bass-side shoulder is now adorned with a vintage-style Höfner-decal, while the previous Jazz Bass-style control knobs have been replaced with Höfner’s famous teacup knobs. Additionally, the bass now also comes with a replica of the famous BASSMAN-sticker in the box. During the making of the Beatles’ Get Back/Let It Be film and LP, Paul McCartney had peeled off the sticker from his new Fender Bassman amplifier stack and stuck it to the top of his bass. For some Beatles fans this sticker has since become a legendary piece of memorabilia, which has now been made available to buyers of the Ignition Violin Bass SE.

The Höfner Ignition is a beautifully made instrument that closely follows the most crucial aspects of the German original’s build:

The hollow body of the Violin Bass is made from an arched plywood spruce top and plywood flame maple for the rims and the arched back. The set neck is carved from rock maple, while the rosewood bridge is held in place on top of the body by the downward force of the strings in Jazz-guitar style.

The most obvious difference between German (and HCT) basses and the Ignition is the exact build of the neck. The original features a freestanding, so-called cantilever fingerboard between the neck joint and the neck pickup. The Ignition’s neck continues as a solid block of maple for the whole way, which actually even makes the neck joint a tiny bit stronger. Additionally, while German 500/1s come with (depending on the model) necks made from either two long strips of maple, or a central piece of beech sandwiched between two outer strips of maple, the Ignition’s neck is one-piece maple with a separate piece glued on for the headstock.

For environmental reasons Höfner now uses thermo-treated jatoba wood for the fingerboards on Ignition Violin Basses. The string trapeze is chromed, while the tuning heads are four separate units with pearloid knobs.

The Ignition pickups are actually reissues of rare Japanese Staple pickups, which were used on some ”New Special” models for the Japanese market back in the Eighties. They look similar to the classic Staple pickups on Paul McCartney’s 500/1, but are slightly wider, and – what’s more important – easier to adjust for height than the German originals.

* Click/tap the picture for a larger view *

Many players who are new to Höfner-basses have trouble with Walter Höfner’s classic ”Aggregat” control console that also comes installed on the Ignition Violin Bass SE. I hope the above picture will do its bit to clear up which component does what.

It looks like a Höfner, it’s built like a Höfner, and – surprise, surprise – the Ignition Violin Bass SE sounds like the genuine Höfner it is! This is a quality instrument, and very compact and light to wear on a strap. The set-up and playability of our review sample was spot on, making the Ignition SE a fast and comfortable player. The neck’s depth may be a bit chunkier than on many modern basses, but the relatively narrow U-profile means that a Höfner neck sits very nicely in the palm of your hand.

It is true that the Höfner 500/1 (aka Violin Bass aka Beatle Bass) will forever be associated with Paul McCartney and the Beatles, but that shouldn’t lead to the instrument being pidgeonholed as a ”Sixties music” bass. I know what I’m talking about, as I have been a very satisfied 500/1-owner since 1990, and I regularly use the Violin Bass in many different contexts. As long as you don’t need to play slap bass or high-gain Metal, a Höfner will handle anything you throw at it.
