At the winter NAMM 2014 Spector © debuted the first of its Helium™ Series,

NS™ and Forte™ basses.

These instruments utilise a unique combination of woods to achieve a great sounding bass with low weight.

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. 
The final Helium™ element is a Spector © locking bridge made of aluminium 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.
