trying is adopting

SébastienM, 01.07.2011
After testing a lot of acoustic bass more or less known, and not having found the grain of sound I was looking for, I headed for this Warwick. The one is really in the big yard, everything is there, the sound, the look, the finish.
Level look, it pleases or it does not please, it does not discuss.
Side finishing, it is superbly assembled, when I took it out of his cover, I contemplated for a good 1/4 of an hour before playing, and every time I play it is the same ritual , I am always in admiration before this beauty. The woods are beautiful, it is harmonious.
Side sound, we recognize Warwick, finally an acoustic bass that does not sound like all others, even without amplification the sound is clean, well defined, it is velvet, the harmonics sound all alone. Trendy without effect we already have a very nice grain of sound, playing on the preamp we arrive to make a real sound, the settings are very effective, access to the pile is more than easy. The handle is WW, a little confusing for who used to play on the JazzBass, I took about 5mn adaptation.
Here, I had to change this bass it would be for his big sister, the Jonas Hellborg signature, but for nothing else, and it was not ready to arrive
Warwick Alien: Try it!

A good A-bass for the band operation

K. K., 07.01.2011
I am very satisfied with my extras. The body is made of locked glued wood, which often makes many bass-lovers lazy - due to the barely existing "swinging" of the wood ;-) Acoustically, the bass is not one of the loudest. But it is enough for practicing in the quiet chamber. This design also has advantages: the alien is very stable and comparatively feedback-resistant, which is helpful when used with the band. For me one of the reasons to buy - besides the piezo pickup, because it not only provides a full and very variable acoustic sound, but with its integrated notch filter and the phase shift, offers additional tools in the fight against the humming loop. I do not use the built-in tuner, because the "measuring result" of this tuner is quite doubtful. My first official deal, incidentally, was to replace the supplied rounds with Thomastik Flats. The feel of the game is better, the sound "acoustic" and the gripping noises less.

The look of the alien is not for everyone. The bass convinces in terms of playability and sound. My recommendation, if one is looking for a solid A-bass for the band insert.
