My first fretless!

ArendK, 14.09.2015
So I thought of being brave and of fretless. Of course this is a passive bass, so you get what you pay for. Great shipment from Thomann around the world, and there is the black beauty. Sounds lovely, the action is great and low, and is a joy to hold and to play. If you consider going fretless AND five strings at the same time, this is a great choice.

Fretless bass with good equipment for a small price

Steffen17, 21.10.2014
As a longtime bass player with 5- and 6-string basses, I wanted to go into the Fretless world. I took several months to compare different fretless basses. It should be a 5-string model, pick-up humbucker (passive or active), playability and processing as well as the price-performance ratio were my main criteria. Ultimately, I chose the Warwick RB Streamer Std 5 FL BKCO.

Right from unpacking from the packaging (always a nice moment) I was happy about the selected black colored oil finish in matt black with the dark ebony fingerboard. This harmonizes very nicely with each other.

The playability is very pleasant and goes easily from the hand. The fretboard does not have fretlines painted, only on the neck surface you can find the usual little points for orientation.

Then the first impression when playing over the amplifier: The output volume is lower because of the passive electronics than with an active bass. If the right volume is found, the fretless bass gives a very nice, warm tone. Slides and calm passage are mastered with a nice penetration and with a lot of expression and brilliance. When switching quickly, however, it tends to fade the sound, since the bass and the lower mids, in contrast to the high frequencies, are in relation to high priority. A fretless bass is clearly not an instrument for fast rock singing, but it is mastered with a balanced basic sound and well-groomed whisper.

The equipment and workmanship is of a high standard, the original Warwick Bridge, the second bridge / tailpiece combination and the Warwick safety harness underline the good quality. Only very small uncleaned transitions between the neck and the fingerboard diminish somewhat the otherwise very good processing of the instrument.

The price / performance ratio is more than ok and goes fully. For me the purchase of this fretless bass was the right decision, a long play is guaranteed here in any case.
