    Warwick Corvette Basic Rockbass

    Rockbass Corvette Basic 5Published on 10/21/03 at 15:00
    I paid £390 for my 5 string black Rockbass. I bought it in England in a really helpful music shop called Hands Music

    This bass is the easiest i've ever played. I think it feels and plays better than anything Fender can cough up. (Thats just my personal opinion, sorry if i've offended anyone!) The string spacing is perfect and the 5th string really growls. And the shape! Oh the shape!

    There is nothing bad about this bass. For me it is perfect. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Smoothe curves and neck, good frets and great feel. This is obviously a bass that Warwick has pride in.

    Buy this bass. THATS A COMMAND!!! You won't regret it i assure you. A must have for any new musici…

    Warwick RockBass Corvette

    Rockbass Corvette Basic 5Published on 01/26/03 at 15:00
    Sam Ash Music store, last month.
    Price paid : $549
    Excellent active bass, for serious beginners. I happen to be one...

    The sound is great, not too rich in harmonics, the overall quality of manufacturing, the look... Everything !

    The setup hasn't been done correctly, but I guess it has to do with the retailer, not the instrument... :)

    Amazing quality, designed in germany, built for most parts in China (that explains the relatively low cost). I've never seen such manufacturing quality coming from China before the RockBass. Impressive.

    I would highly recommand this bass for beginners for two reasons : Its price, which is really aggressive for such a quality instrument, and its versatilit…

    I would highly recommand this bass for beginners for two reasons : Its price, which is really aggressive for such a quality instrument, and its versatility (I've played few other active basses, especially Ibanez, during my buying process. IMHO, the Warwick is the only one that can still sound great without a battery).

    5 string bass, Warwick dlocalise production in China. Alder body (very nice, the black paint is transparent lgrement) Bolt in stocky, rosewood fingerboard, 24 frets of good size. Two microphones MEC Jazz Bass type gold, electronic active (9V battery available dvissant trap which protects the electronic). Four potentiomtres: gnral volume, pickup balance, bass and treble.

    UTILIZATION

    This bass has a tiny body, a handle and a head pais quite impressive. Premire consquence: it pitches down. Grable's all done if they have a strap short enough, the game low on the lap is really untenable. Deuxime consquence: Access in irrprochable is acute, especially as the heel is trs profile. Troisi…

    UTILIZATION

    This bass has a tiny body, a handle and a head pais quite impressive. Premire consquence: it pitches down. Grable's all done if they have a strap short enough, the game low on the lap is really untenable. Deuxime consquence: Access in irrprochable is acute, especially as the heel is trs profile. Troisime consquence: the game in the low position is quite tiring for the left hand. It's not unplayable, but you know.

    Overall, despite the default of balance, the instrument is easy to play provided they do not attack so severe as a nag, I have not found that rglage frisette quickly without a high dmesurment action.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is fairly neutral, not color trs. For cons, the active electronic trs effective. to snore furiously, sometimes to the point of saturating Can I connect the other end of the jack. This bass has no personality of a Fender or Music Man, but it is comfortable everywhere. Let us be clear, this is not a high-end instrument, but for the most-all - does beginners as I am, has not sound bad at all.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this bass for a little less than a year and a half. the era, I tried a lot of dtach MODELS and is quite ahead. If I had the same choice to do today, I'd possibly be for one of its competitors, but I do not regret this purchase. Still, I'd replace it with a better balance low, to play without constant struggle against the weight of the handle.

    ACCS Acute aus is pretty good, all the dernires frets are easily accessible.
    The ergonomics of the bass is good, not because it is the thundering of measurements of a Warwick Corvette. It is relatively easy to handle and lgre. On the shoulder she too PSE.
    No problem for slapper, if not a little cart Reduces strings (5 strings requires). If you have the money go towards an Ibanez or Warwick Broad Neck, with a spacing of 19-20mm bridge. But I have great hands and I get slapper with the standard map of the ROCKBASS.

    The only complaint was a clear tendency to bend the head when playing seated. It distorts the position of the lower leg and maintaining ncessite when you stop playing. It feels that much less against the strap.

    SOUNDS

    It is a versatile low-rev, the sound is quite punchy, modern and round. The pickups are fairly hot, but not join the roundness and sweetness of a Fender JazzBass. If the rev is good for low Dfine this range.
    The neck pickup is sweet trs, trs not typical but effective and can be used for all styles, fiddling with the tone.
    The micro bridge it is more typical round with a biting well. He can play jazz like Funk prcise with an attack. I usually play with the Tone zero, the sound is much warmer.
    The center position is primarily for me slap.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have now for several months, a purchase that I do not regret for a low paying 450 euros (Thomann), your exact is quite convincing.
    To retain positive good microphones (those quipent some Warwick Corvette) If a correctemetn Dfine, an easy walk round.

    Ct ngatif we have: the head leaning, no back button (but on top of the handle it can be Drout).

    Short for the price, it's a good buy, especially if your a fan of Warwick, but you can not pay a "real". 9 A good for the quality of this low-end Asian way.
