Very good workmanship, sound disaster ..

Jayteebass, 13.09.2016
The Warwick Corvette is fabulous. I have no flaws or weaknesses to discover. The woods are optically well chosen and harmonize with each other. The Gigbag and accessories are also excellent. The playability is very good.

Unfortunately, the bass is very heavy, but well balanced. The Corvette has some disadvantages that I personally can not accept. The bass sounded only approximately as a Fretless. A "singing" or "purring" as well as a suitable sustain can be looked for in vain. The G-string suffers from the 5th to the 9th alliance at deadspots, further upwards it then again normal but unfortunately also characterless. The entire bass sounds boring and sterile in some way. However, he has a healthy attack and a lot of punch. The electronics are ok, except for much too glassy heights with fully opened aperture. From a Warwick I had expected much more. Passionate Fretless players should avoid the bass. Overall a disappointment, the bass goes back.

Beautiful bass

07.12.2015
The instrument is supplied in a sturdy, clipped cardboard box that uses a few air cushions as a filling material. The bass guitar is in a rockbag with some integrated pockets for the accessories in which also the tool a polishing cloth as well as the security locks are located. On the whole, the bag is quite stable and valuable. When opening it, one can see an intense and somewhat habituated smell, the instrument is made of unpainted natural wood. The surfaces of all parts are flawlessly polished and impregnated. The body is surprisingly heavy, but precisely because of this, the bass is perfectly balanced on the belt. All mechanics are the finest in their processing and adjustment. The tuning stability and the strings are very good. The basic setting needs no de facto correction. The bass is strung from the factory with Warwick Black Label roundwound Strings 045 "-105". My model is equipped with passive MEC pickups.

About the sound:
With the help of the two pickups and the tone control, in principle any sound can be set from 'crunchy' to 'deeply humbling'. Due to the design, however, every passive sound reduction requires a correction to the volume control when changing the mixer of the pickup and the tone control. Now to the sound picture 'fretless' is to say that this is very well balanced. I would put it in the category 'Wahh'. Those who are expecting Jaco's 'sing' may be a bit disappointed. Only the G-string comes very harmonically - a bit reminiscent of a sitar. I will have to change something about the basic setting. Otherwise, I am satisfied with the sound, because it reminds me more of classical bundled string instruments - a pure taste.

To play the unmarked fretless bass:
Again most of the recommendations I have decided for an unmarked version - simply because they like me better. The side-mounted collar markings serve only for rough orientation. The mentioned luminosity of the points could not convince me. Admittedly from the 12th fret and the upper strings, it can already be 'tight' to take the right position. This requires more concentration while playing, a sophisticated grip technique or a lot of practice.

A usage instruction for all Warwick Teambuilt Pro Series® bass guitars as well as further links can be found on the Warwick homepage.

In summary,
The Warwick Corvette Standard Passive Bass from the Pro Series range is a product made exclusively in Germany, optically very appealing and beautifully processed, a real 'eye-catcher' with a balanced sound. I would however in the case of a replacement purchase with small extra charge the version with active pickups, which was not available at the time of my purchase.
