    gives a sound its easy relativment I'll dcrire on ...

    SOUNDS

    People who want to play all kinds of styles will be delighted! the bass is versatile in its Contents, it is very heavy or fat and it is pure, crystalline enough, the trick is to do some tests rglages at microphones ...
    j'apprcie what is especially the ease that one has to leave notes in tapping and slap is pretty nice too.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall a pretty low trs both the appearance as the sound it DGIG. its worth the price if I buy low again because I Rasht a Warwick j'apprcie the sound of their bass. the only point that I ESG is the weight of the bass but the sight of the positives involved in this low trs quickly we forget what dtail!

    UTILIZATION

    The neck is thin enough and long enough round shape allows good hand position on the handle (the cramps are rare ^ ^). The place of potentiomtres did nothing rvolutionnaire one for volume one for the balance and the last consists of two mounted one over the other and diameter diffrent amliorant taking main (the big down to the bass and the smallest at the top to the treble). The form also did nothing but rvolutionnaire rpart weight is low and does not seem heavy to me. (I had an old ibanez before c can be for her that it seems lg re ...)
    Ps: the tuning is easy thanks to the inclination of the mcanique on the head).

    SOUNDS

    The sound is amazing and rglages bass and treble permetent to slip into any musical style. The finger can then have its very round sound very aggressive slap collected with a mediator.
    I played on a 135W amp GenzBenz without additional effect and I am very satisfied with the sound produced.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about a year now and nothing has changed except the fact of maintaining a wax timber body of the bass ... the price is not very attractive but low warwick really sound and a superb finish!
    If I did not have a bass and I wanted to invest then I would resume without hsitation this low!

    Warwick Standard (MODEL launched in 1995 as "entry level" of a prestigious brand), made in Germany (even the hardware!). 24 frets superb quality alloy is solid. Mics: 2 types strips Jazz Bass. Three pots: one volume gnral, slecteur a rotary with a balance point between the two pickups, a Tone gnrale. I bought this bass at the top by having to install a high-end pramp kind Sadowsky or Aguilar, to become more serious. Warwick Bridge design unique.
    The handle: in a beautiful wood species (Ovangkol), trs sweet, the profile is quite pronounced in D maisil remains narrower than a Precision Bass neck. Excellent Access in treble. I put 9 because of the limitations of the sound palette of the two microphones J. Too bad there's no place to put a microphone between the two P!

    UTILIZATION

    Excellent sleeve as said above: the cl rglage ais thanks allen "T" provided. A breeze! (I must say that the wood works easily with the change in temprature and humidity, especially if you change your tune).
    Ergonomics is exquisite, round shapes make it easy to carry. Weight, trsdcri is no worse than a Fender.
    As for the sound: it is the PAF. Not tamper thirty years! However, I find the tone rather small correction, it's not really a low for the "veloutquot;. I try my hand well to the half-round string nets to offset rounded. I put a 9 for the remaining trs typ.

    SOUNDS

    I play the big rock 70 and I needed to completely replace my Epiphone Viola I loved also (with nets dishes).
    I play my flat on a "small" Ashdown Five Fifteen-100w, not the amp but s'entraner of thunder was enough!
    Sounds: crystalline, reminds me a ct "piano wire", with a sustain vertgineux as good on Rickenbacker 4001. It lends itself well to the attacks Martel careful though, his characters are not excessive when rvler attack too hard (knocking the attack, especially with ropes round threads).
    I would say that one can hardly do without both mdiator prsence Defines and timbre are dynamic. Slappeuse good, although somewhat acute (the preamp circuit with a bypass would make this bass a gun).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a month.
    What I like: coffee maker has the srieux manufacturing, the original forms, the "piano chords" massive!
    What I like least: the lack of bass / mid pickups. A bit nasal.
    I tried a Yamaha BB 5 string (not bad, but not quite classic personality), a Frank Bello Jazz Bass (not to sound too mtallique Tone), a standard Precision Mexico (that Well, no more), a Jazz Bass 70 '.
    I hsit between JB and the 70 Corvette. Once the Corvette essay I forget the others.
    Yet I am branch Aesthetics "vintage". Too bad there are not two volumes / two tone. I did not leave the shop with Warwick and now it is my home! :-D
    It's the little dynamite this low!
    I would do this choice, multiple low Corenne lass I had, I wanted an instrument of high quality for the home and studio RPTES. It shows the height. In addition, Warwick provides a certificate of quality with SERIES n, and a maintenance kit complte: Guide rglage, T cl for the rgler trussrod, wax sp cial Warwick (think many beginners to polish up form a film, then once a month depending on usage), a soft and comfortable TRS Rockbag excellent cover for the train and habitus the metro!

    German made. Swamp ash body / sleeve screwed Ovangkol / key wenge
    Warwick Bridge (like Alembic, also), adjustable in height, either wholly or rope rope, string spacing adjustable. Adjustable saddle height. Active Electronics (remember that the Corvette has 900 € you can see on the foreign site, are passive!). Balance of microphones (type jazz bass), cut / boost bass and treble, push-pull volume/passif.24 boxes. frets special alloy (bronze / silver I think) for greater resistance.

    UTILIZATION

    I read some reviews (after having bought it actually) who speak a handle like "lumberjack". Well here they should have played on my G & L! Frankly the handle of the Warwick is very pleasant, rather fin.La key has a very large radius, it is almost flat. The weight is very low acceptable.Ma precedente (G & L so) with a body in the same timber was very much heavier! Ergonomics is good, sitting or standing. The finish is tip top, the object comes with a soft case very very well done, a hard case embroidered brand name, bringing adjusting keys, wax and cloth for maintenance, etc. ... Really it does not care the client home Warwick.C is very flattering, you feel you start typing in the real instrument. The only criticism we can make this a natural finish, well it's fragilité.Attention to belt buckles, rivets and other jeans! Forgive pas.C It is a shame but that's the price to pay to have this so sensual touch wood. The slappeur that I had a twinge of regret when I feel the nail of my index finger during typing wood from! a 9, therefore the fragility of the finish and can be access to the latest boxes

    SOUNDS

    So here's where you laugh more! It sends the steak in Teutonic Warwick! Say that there are ca few years I could not sack this brand ... I was left on a Jazz bass deluxe, for his versatility, having a priori WW.typé Rock, not very flexible .. Well nay! It's not the medium n'atteind pinched the Sieur Jaco as well as with my G & L but we gain serious (this is the case to say!) At low and growl! She growls like a lion this bass! And played mediator pushing a bit on the mic acute AC bites like a crocodile! Be careful with acute, if abused, very quickly become ubiquitous. J'atteind Anyway, the sound I heard on CDs without ever managing to get it. Little flat as the passive failover, which disconnects carrement SETTINGS Bass aigus.On can only play on the balance micros.dommage of ...
    She and plugged into an Ampeg B2-R with 15 'of the same manufacturer

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had it now 3 semaines.J 'I still had time to test many things, I play at least 1 hour every day. I tried it by chance (I had come in search of pearl for the bass that I finished making), and it was truly the coup de foudre.Et those who know me know that it makes me not like to leave with a bazaar of more than 1000 € in a flash! bon.pas exceptional Value for money either, even when AC is a minimum wage, then it may be good! But the beauty of wood and its development (the bass painted yuck), sound (apparently WW, AC has a lil grain) which is a hit, getting started, the feeling of getting value for money with all ptits accessories and monitoring of the firm, Ben AC seduced, it is clear. I do not regret a single second of having traded my G & L (L2000 tribute, not a Rican) against the sloop, even if it was already great. Now I drool at the custom shop with Warwick wood of madness and its accabit same price, but p. .. How beautiful!

    Warwick Corvette StandardPublished on 04/27/10 at 17:43
    This is a Warwick Corvette bass, made in China, even though this is a German company. The bass has a bolt on neck, which is made of ovangkol (which is exotic and new to me). The body of the guitar is made out of bubinga, which is also rather exotic. The bridge is a two-piece Warwick bridge. There are 24 frets. The 2 pickups on the bass I played were active, though I've seen the same model with passive pickups. There is a volume knob for each pickup and a tone knob.

    UTILIZATION

    UTILIZATION

    The bass is relatively easy to play, though it does feel very big to me in comparison to some of the other basses I am familiar with. Getting a nice sound out of this is relatively simple, assuming this is the kind of bass sound you like. It's a pretty heavy bass, that is actually kind of a beast to play. I really struggled to master it at first, it's very physically demanding which makes a lot of sense considering its enormous sound. I may just need to practice with it more, considering I am a relatively recent convert to Warwick.

    SOUNDS

    I don't know if I like this sound of bass very much. It is definitely extremely powerful. However, compared to a P-Bass or something similar, I think it has a little bit too much. A friend of mine described it as a roaring sound, and I would have to agree with him. I used it with a Marshall bass amp, which probably added to the enormous power of the sound. I would have to say that metal bassists would really like this, it's a super low-end heavy bass that really moves the sound forward. I have heard that Erykah Badu's bassist also uses Warwick's, though not this model. This also makes sense, as the low end in neo-soul is similarly enormous. This doesn't really work for me, the rock that I play requires a little bit less out of the low end and more character.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I liked the Warwick for what it was, but it was tough for me to play it, and it was a little too heavy-sounding for me to play well. I don't think I would stick with this bass for very long, but I would say that it is certainly a unique instrument, and I'd recommend it to people who's taste is similar to what I already described in the last paragraph.

    Made in Germany

    24 frets, two passive MEC Jazz pickups

    Body: US swamp ash Set neck: ovangkol. Fingerboard: wenge.

    Three controls: one volume, two tone

    Strings: Warwick standard (45-105)

    Bridge: Warwick

    Very slim and comfortable neck!

    The shape of the body allows an easy access to the upper frets.

    The body shape is very ergonomic and the bass is very light. It's a delight!

    The sound is not very versatile. Two single coil pickups and two tone controls provide only for basic combinations. But it's enough if you're looking for a good passive bass guitar with a real sound personality to get a g…

    UTILIZATION

    Very slim and comfortable neck!

    The body shape is very ergonomic and the bass is very light. It's a delight!

    The sound is not very versatile. Two single coil pickups and two tone controls provide only for basic combinations. But it's enough if you're looking for a good passive bass guitar with a real sound personality to get a good sound right away.

    SOUNDS

    With two Jazz pickups you know what you are up to...

    Nevertheless the basic sound (controls in the center position) is very deep. So you immediately get very pleasant and deep lows. This bass definitely has a strong sound character (unlike a Yamaha!).

    I usually play heavy metal. This bass is not the best tool for that particular music style but it's good enough for me. It doesn't produce the "huge sound" of an Ibanez or a BC Rich for example, but it's a good solution if you are a heavy metal player who wants to play different things. The slap sound is also very good.

    I play with an excellent 30-watt Ibanez Soundwave amp, which allows me to get a much bigger sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had it for three months and I'm very satisfied with its sound, weight and playability.

    Compared with other bass guitars I tested (Yamaha, Ibanez) I find it has a strong character, but I also like my active Ibanez very much though (it's ideal for heavy metal).

    However this bass has a big disadvantage: the head is much too heavy when you play it with a strap. So test it standing up before you buy it... Perhaps this lack of balance will convince you to choose another instrument.

    Another small defect (if you can call it that) is that the sound is extremely accurate. That means that you have to play every note between the frets otherwise it won't be in tune. Because of that when you play it you feel as if you were playing a fretless where left hand precision is the most important thing. But you'll get used to it.

    As a summary, it's a good bass with a very nice finish (German quality!) but the price is a bit too high considering both cons I mentioned. I don't think it's better than a budget Ibanez (SR300) that a friend bought recently. This Ibanez is not expensive and has a super sound! (although it's equipped with Ibanez pickups).
