MGR/Golem's review"Warwick Corvette Double Buck"

Warwick Corvette $$ 4
One is red and one is black. One had frets and one does not. The FL has an ebony FB which is almost black and looks way sharp with the red body. The fretted black-bodied version looks like most any other black bass, very nondescript. These are the ''Double Buck'' or simply ''$$'' versions, with dual, bare-pole [mm-style] humbuckers and lightweight swamp ash bodies. The swamp ash has been slightly sandblasted which makes the grain very dimensional. Looks cool.

They both come from GC clearance sales ... otherwise they'd be kinda pricey. I've seen GC tag used ones at more than the clearance price for these new ones. Funny company. Or at least their computers have a sense of humor ....

These are NOT heavy like the bubinga and other exotic Wicks. These are lighter than most basses. The twin humbuggers and control switches offer various useful tones even with the active EQ shut down. You CAN shut off the active EQ, and the passive PUs will keep on keeping on. The controls and choices are quite a story so I refer you to the Wick website ... but I like a thorough set of controls, and this ax goes there.

Despite all the cool controls on it, the EQ is only 2-band. The MM-type PUs can be split to single coil, but there is no dummy coil [so they are liable to pick up line noise, rf, etc].

The two cost cutting measures that bother me at all [2-band eq, and no dummy coils] are not actual ''quality of build'' issues, but I'd still consider that a lack of maximum total quality. But I find no other faults except for the battery access cover, which is a traditional gripe with Wick and I'd rather suffer that, than suffer the ''traditional'' 7th fret dead spot on certain other basses ..... So build quality is really fine. The bridge and tail piece allow adjustment of action height SEPERATELY from adjustments to match the FB radius .... so you can experiment with height without disturbing the radius. PU height screws are machine screws in threaded inserts [not wood screws]. Build quality plus great hardware details like the adjustable nut ... that's what makes for total quality. This bass scores high, but not top rank [that lack of dummy coils, the limits of a 2-band eq ... ]

The fretted $$ is a really nice bass, but only the FL version is truly outstanding. The fretted is versatile, comfortable, a really likeable bass, but not really set apart from it's somewhat similar competitors. You can pretty much interchange it with certain offerings from EBMM, Spector, etc. Being among good company equals high praise ... it's your money and your choice. But the FL version really *IS* set apart from it's worthy competitors. The sound of the ebony FB is very evident. The special nature of the bridge adjustments [see previous section] means so much more to an FL player. As an FL, the Wick $$ offers things the competion does not, including a piezo option [got that on another wick fl if you wanna read another review ... ] The overall playing experience of any bass is hard to describe objectively, but the Wick experience is exceptional, as long as you like fat necks. If you only dig pencil necks, you'll never get used to a Wick. Anywho the fretted version ranks barely a '4' and the FL ranks just short of '5' ... so the pair definitely gets a '4'.

pascaph's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very low practice"

Warwick Corvette $$ 4
- Made in Germany
- 24 Fretes
- 2 MEC humbuckers
- Active and Passive Mode activated by push / pull
- Volume / Balance micro / Equ 2 bands (high - low)


The neck is super nice (thick shape, flat surface keys) structure, especially for people like me who have small hands. For cons, I find it a bit long and access to raw block may be a bit tiring at first but got used to it quickly. Access to acute is his, genuine, much easier than on a JB or a musicman, thanks to the 24 frets.
This bass is very pleasant to wear strap, because the body is small and the bass is very well balanced: a treat.


I play this bass on 3 types of amp: ashdown little bastard / Gallien Krueger MB200 / SWR Headlite. She is very versatile and can play any style of music (rock, pop, reggae, blues) thanks to the EQ 2 super efficient and multiple combination possibilities microphones bands (series, PARALLEL, ..) really impresive!
This is the lowest with which I mean the best in the mix of my group.


I use this bass for 2 years. I had a Jazz bass, Musicman Stingray and a Ibanez SR Premium. Warwick is equivallente all these excellent bass with can be a little more character (she joined a little this side of the musicman), allowing it to penetrate the mix of the group, which is super convenient to get along .
On occasion, the price quality ratio is unbeatable. I remake this choice without hesitation.

The girl comes with a gigbag impressive, a pot of wax Warwick, its manufacturing documents, a technical manual, rags to cuddle as well as of rglages cls. All this fits perfectly into the gigbag to be 100% mobile ^ ^
Rating: 9 / 10
I do not see what could be added ... this bass can be a knob for mids but I do not know if it would effectively trs t seen the effect of severe knobs / dj acute standard ... I think I'm quibbling ...


- The handle is it enjoyable?
Frankly, the beginners ... no. I tried to start MODEL 5 string and I t took a cramp in his left hand after 5 minutes of play the 4 strings MODEL me more agr Able but one advice: forget what you have experienced. The handle is round with a relatively lightweight mplat in its center (like a semi-oval in fact), but fear not, after a few hours of playing everything will be better;) Frankly end to Premire level boxes, you'll have no trouble reaching the Mi Its roundness and especially its thickness in the body are quite impressive at first, but it should not be relied upon, the interface is well think and also no problem to type in Most recent internship boxes ^ ^
The handle has a very spcial coating, a kind of satin as the body instead of a conventional varnish, it's really enjoyable trs, we feel we played on the wood. If hands are dirty from hanging against a fast, but good, has costs nothing to be clean when you go have fun with it. Point of view I have no problem sweating like this, a slip always alone ...

- Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
As I said before, no worries. I have big paws but I do not think a lot of problem arises with the views of the dcoupe body. Strangely I had more difficulty to play on the E string in the middle of the handle in the treble, because the transition-Warwick surely Cort ^ ^

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
Aesthetics ... devastating. A body "sexy", beautiful curves, an aggressive look thanks to the bridge and Warwick typical double microphones. Mine is black with color marks veins trs "Nutella", it is therefore not too low mtaleux precisely thanks trs small body. I love the head with the "W" nacre mcaniques and styles, all agree trs well, we can not stay indiffrent.
As for the weight I had a little trouble getting used to. I am not a MODEL in the righteousness of the back, used to play a little curve here has stuck. I play with my strap gnralement rpart weight, has caused me some back pain in beginners (let's be optimistic, at least it reminds stay upright ^ ^). When seated, the head lgrement picnic, which can interfere when jumping from the middle of the handle to its extrmit but outside of this case really no problem, I find m I support that it takes my left hand against the stable. While standing on the other hand it is trs balance regardless of the position in which you hold (higher or lower or horizontal).
The dual microphones to ask beginners problem. They are frankly colls each other, trs prs strings for potato, I t rude sometimes by clawing ... The solution is simple, adapt his game I spent a lot of hours to the rducation, back and forth with empty string to find how to play without running continuously on the microphones. It does not have 100% rsoud the problem but the fluidity of the game is better. To play against me by mdiator place between the bridge and the first microphone, the strings are stiff but I prfre trs: I do not hit in the micro. To play slower and more groove I place myself between the handle and the second microphone, the strings are too elastic, but I got the I do not worry. Otherwise, I place myself between the two microphones, fingers emissions to be trs trs always near the small central space. Finally, everyone will find its mark, it's only a matter of habit I think ...
Level knobs you do not get lost, trs is intuitive and lightweight classic with a "click" into position intermdiaire. The slecteurs are also very easy to play or ACCS, to really find the sound that suits us.

- Gets it easy to sound good? ...
... Warwick sound. I plutt Amateur Thumb grain of origin, but the Corvette me first attracted to its price, then the $ $ for its versatility. The sound comes out alone but I have some problems with my sometimes verging against Mi Most recent internship frets when I tickle a little too ... go with my luthier next week will arrange a free if not thanks to cls provided with the bass can be easily self-same rgler I think precisely because of the frieze Mi ct "elastic" strings home when I am between the handle and the second ... mico change emergency. I did not know normment brand of strings, but they are quite fitted by Warwick dsagrables. I would add my impressions this topic once a new set of strings on my beautiful Mount
Rating: 8 / 10
"Warwick, eight points!" The pickups could be better configured, it would have been a 10 ... but the truth is that one or two more centimtres to cart and t have total happiness. The handle on him is not involved in the note, I am quite used to it now, it's just the beginners of the transition is surprising but it relies on fast


- Appropriate are your style of music?
Versatile. The knobs are trs effective, well-branded micro balance, nothing wrong. The slecteurs microphones also are quite impressive for its effectiveness from a "normal" TRS enveloping sound. Plutt I play rock / prog, it should trs what style it is very easy to go into a blues groove even though powerful riffs mtaleux.

- With what (s) amp (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I play on a small Line6 LowDown 75W, 10 'with modlisation. Until this combo Submitted relieves me of effects pedals (you can choose between a "clean", "blues", "rock", "synthetic" and "grind" (very close to Muse so also rgl)) that captures what I want.

- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
The something for everyone. Plutt home in the mediums, if I want good bass brands I turn two knobs and I what I want. Need support in a more lightweight solo? It affects slecteurs microphones to fade a little. Submitted want to play more with a battery? Single, dual microphones and a little toward the handle. The rglages agreed right away and are a child's play, less trs be (too) picky you can always find the sound you want.

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
Pluttmdiums low-and thinking to buy a 5 string, I finally faced my choice rvis this little gem. It sounds Warwick, the slap is impeccable ... I do not see what I could dtest ... she is wonderful.
Rating: 10/10
She MRIT. The sound is fabulous, it possde a grain dcrire difficult, I would say lgrement nasal but the best is to hear self-same. I do not know anyone who does not charmed by his singing. It could go higher in the notes, I would climb 12 ... ^ ^


- How long have you use it?
Only a month ... I rviserais notice in a while;)

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
What I like? The magical sound, the dcoupe the body color with veins, the frets SPECIFICATIONS Warwick, his head somewhat commonplace, the straplocks scuriss a spcial mcanisme the gigbag given with high bills, etc etc ...
What I like least ... for now this Satane rope frieze (but hey, you really play hard and fast is the limit of haggling ^ ^) and wood that marks quickly trs quickly. I am my worst nightmare and trsmticuleux is to leave marks on my jewel ... bad luck the first day, unaccustomed to weight / size of the bte, she met the edge of my office once or twice. The traces are tiny but it made me a little ... rler

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Enormment. 8 months of active search through all brands and MODELS ... I almost DCID for a Fender PB Aesthetics leaving me in spite of its marble, its even butterflies that I really do not like but indniables quality. After a few weeks I came across a Warwick Thumb, I fell in love and I did when ds never ceases to run APRS this brand ^ ^

- How do you report qualitprix?
The beautiful is worth its price. No forcment trs affordable yet the quality is l. I really can not complain, not to mention super gigbag in which I sleep if I had no qualms leaving my bass in my bed so uncomfortable compared ^ ^

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Without a doubt. My only regret is never having seen the MODEL in red is to say xD With the same budget I resume without hsiter. Now I have a Warwick Thumb Bubinga with a view to complter my collection, not really comparable both in the sounds of rates, the Corvette $ $ was a real charm and Fidler made the brand.
Overall rating: 9 / 10
Apart from the pickups, my criticisms are those of a perfectionist. I really look for the small bte hsitent but for those who still go for it! This bass is a wonderful play, I sometimes take it just to hear its sound by scraping the strings empty ... I may be crazy but I think she has shown me how conquered)

Ha, for the story, buy new 995, 1100, but the vendor has officially concd a bonus of sympathy ... ^ ^ (Even full price I would have bought all fawns ...)

vttxtreme's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Warwick Corvette $$ 4
So I will not repeat what has been ennoncé in the previous opinion on the characteristics of this pretty low ...

- Made in Germany
- 24 cases with 2 humbucker pickups quite impressive ... (Switchable in series, parallel or split indépendemmment from each other)
Easel warwick
- A volume, a balance between the two microphones, an acute, severe 1, and 2 switches for the pickups
- Channel Wenge


After several days of use, I find it super fun to play, the handle is neither too big nor too thin and soft. Access to acute is average for the last boxes are not m'enfin solos guitaresques every 5 minutes ... lol

Played sitting position is good, for standing against the strap with it stings a little nose but I think it's the body that is small enough compared to the length of the handle ...

I took it in burgundy red, the color is gorgeous, the wood grain also braf ca change from black!

Then in sound ... from an ibanez GSR200 this warwick ... ca ca has nothing to do about it! The sound is superb, a bit too shiny for my taste but it just may be that the origins of string? You can really have all kinds of sound, big sound to the metal with the pickups in series sends serious, like a well rounded bass for other styles like rock, funk, reggae etc ...


The sounds are perfect for my style of music since I play metal, I was looking for a bass with a big sound, I'm smitten from the first second I have tested it!

I play many amps in rehearsals and at home, but it made me rediscover my amp (marshall 200W 4 * 10) ... In terms of effects, just a compressor Electro harmonix ...
I have a SansAmp but now I think I will ever need ...


In conclusion I confirm everything that was said in the previous opinion, for example when playing with a pick ca rubs a lot of mics. I use it for a few days but I hope I would do a long way with! I love its sound, its look, its red color (for me), versatility ...

Bought 920 euros in Pigalle, I think it is a great value given its level of finish ...

This choice I would do 5 or 6 times without hesitation! LOVE (after we like it or not its warwick!)
