you like a full sound but want a
soloist voice, wide tonal range, and
lighter weight for stage or studio.

The Final Mojo
The Euro5LX has an even, dark quality
(emphasizing the fundamentals) that is
consistent through all registers regardless
of how hard you pluck, while the NS-5H2 is
also tonally even, but has a brighter initial
sound, and develops a nice percussiveness
when you dig in. Though the Euro’s preamp,
the Spector TonePump, is simple, between
it and the single/dual coil selection capability you can get a wide range of sounds and
colors. With the NS-5H2 and the Aguilar
OBP- 3 preamp, you also get control of the
midrange which gives you a ridiculously
wide tonal palette.

A quality I look for in an instrument is
whether it challenges me to play something new, and both of these instruments
did—but if I had to choose only one, it
would be the NS–5H2 for its extra dimension of soloist quality.
