The best 5-string bass in this price range

APC, 21.01.2014
I have been using it for a couple of months and I can assure you that the midrange Warwick does not disappoint at all in terms of sound and features.

The instrument comes with the key needed to adjust the soul, although in my case I did not have to change anything. It also comes with safety clips for the belt, something that is always to thank to avoid scares. The finish on "Nirvana Black" and its shapes and design are wonderful, they earn a lot live, and this is something to be thankful for if you will spend years playing this instrument. It has to enter by ear and by sight.

The sound has these characteristic bass tones of the passive, with a depth that some high-end would like. The fifth string sounds better than I expected, since the sound samples are difficult to perceive (I advise watching videos on youtube). With the controllers you can switch from series to parallel easily, and if you play with the tone control you can play absolutely any style of music. In this sense it is very versatile.

The only downside is, of course, Chinese manufacture, which lowers the product to the detriment of the manufacture: the frets were not well-sliced ??at the ends and I had to adjust them in a "homemade way" so they would not damage my hand. Of course, the quality of Warwick is noted in the pieces, but not in the finishes of manufacture. I suppose that for this price some glue had to have, but I prefer that it be this and not in sonority ..

The adjustment of the bass is tremendously simple, yes, I recommend downloading the manual in Spanish from the website of Warwick since the one that comes in the box is in English.

In short, this is the best option of low passive 5-string quality / price I have been able to find, is the perfect choice for anyone who does not want to move to the 2000-3000EUR. After a while playing I am very satisfied with the purchase, I do not regret it the least. Recommended 100%.

Hammer sound, but bad processing!

02.03.2016
I bought the bass just over a 3/4 year ago. Sounds technically I am very satisfied. With the Warwick you have a really grumpy and assertive sound. The only thing that bothered me a bit is the pickups. At a somewhat louder volume they catch the noise relatively quickly. That would not be really wild, if you could easily fit other pickups. This is, however, extremely difficult as the cutouts of the humbucker are very wide and most of the other $$ do not fit in properly. Only a few of the individual brands fit into the milling cutouts or a few of the brand Bartolini. The ordering of spare pickups is also relatively difficult, since they are mostly only on the official website and in the case of the Bartolinis these must order from the USA.

My main criticism is the processing! As I said above, I do not have the bass really long. So far I had two technical problems. The first time, the potis have broken (push-pull potentiators are generally more susceptible than normal) and the second time the PU's. This saddens the overall impression of the bass unfortunately relatively strongly, which is very unfortunate.

Nevertheless, I have to praise Thomann, because they always very much trouble in the case of a complaint give!
