Great intermediate bass

25.09.2014
This bass is easily the nicest playing bass I've ever had my hands on. I've played it on different amps and has a really nice low tone. However, it lacks some punch and clarity on the highs.
It doesn't allow me to get a nice slap sound out of it. After research this seems to be partly caused by the potentiometers, which are 25K but should be 500K for humbuckers, just like in the German-produced Warwicks.
Besides that the pickups don't provide the same volume level when going from fingerpicking to slapping.
Overall it's still a very solid bass with a lot of sound options because of the push/pull capabilities. Definitely worth it's money.

The Warwick sound a very good price

Bakersy, 31.10.2011
Not having the budget to offer me a "real" Warwick, I turned to this model;)
When I received it, a weld had flowed during manufacture, distorting the effect of one of the serial / parallel switches. M'enfin, a little scissors and it was settled but good a little disappointing on a bass of this price anyway ...
On the level we find Warwick grain, with less power and punch (because of the passive electronics in my opinion). But it's electronic passive also makes the sound more natural, although a little flat, but this last point easily corrects to the amp;).
