Super instrument

Claude122, 05.01.2018
What strikes when you take in hand this bass is its weight, 5.4 Kg! Everyone will decide if it's a problem or not.
The sound is very good, it pierces the mix well without spreading on other instruments. The bass has a "growl", an interesting grain. The medium is present, the sound is "focused", the treble is present without excess, the sound is generally round, warm.
The handle has its dimensions indicated on the site of Warwick. I have small hands (as an indication my major is 8 cm) and I can play this bass, the strings are spaced 16.5 mm at the bridge. The handle is not particularly thick (we often hear that the sleeves of Warwick are "trunks"). I wish that the edge of the ground rope side button is a little more rounded and a little less at right angles, on this bass angle is particularly dry and it is not comfortable when the fingers rub on when access to the bass strings when like me we have small hands.
The bass comes with strap locks, which is a good idea, mine did not have but an email to Thomann fixed that, they sent me strap locks.
The bass comes in a well-padded soft case of good quality, I think I'll settle for that and not buy a hard case. The bass is also delivered with the keys that allow to adjust the neck and the bridge.
The sustain is enough, not bad for a screwed neck.
The balance is good in standing game, and also in sitting game.
The agreement holds properly, I saw better, I saw worse. The finish is very good. The bass has arrived well adjusted with a fairly low action but not too much.
It is passive, so no battery problem.
On the other hand the bass generates too much background noise / hum / hiss when the tone knob does not attenuate the treble, this noise is very reduced when the volume is zero. It's disappointing for a bass of this class, that's why I only put 4 stars.
Si's string sounds ok.
The strings are Warwick steel, the pulling is medium.
As it is a fretless 5-string spacing of 16.5 mm, it is not to make the slap, it does not slap because there are no frets and ropes close together make the accuracy difficult .
The markers on the edge of the neck are fluorescent, it's a great idea when you're on a stage with little light.
In summary a very good instrument that is worth its price.
