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

Warwick FNA Jazzman 5
24 cases
Table Saddle reported net flame with walnut.
Bolt Ovangkol. Touche Wenge.
Micros Jazz / pav stud apparent liability.
3-way Basslines active electronics.
CONTRL volume push / pull (EQ / preset). Balance. A 3-position switch. A serious one mdium, a fever.
Note that one can obtain a passive bass just by pulling on the volume knob.

A default: the natural finish, color and clarity of the Saddle make it messy trs. If like me you do not wash their hands before surgery to play the tracks hello!

The Saddle as a relatively soft wood, beware those who type nails slapper! (I did ask for 15 euros a transparent plexi type "flamenco" around the bottom of the microphones and the problem was serious rsolu t)

I put 9 for the fragility of the table.


The handle is it enjoyable?
pass on the controversy sleeves warwick, try.
For my part, the feel of natural wood seems irreplaceable, and the sleeves have become my polish trsdsagrables.

Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
yes, for a 5 string it's not bad.

Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)
Apart from the fact that it is one of the best basses in the world (objective, well-sr), it is quite heavy, but you get done quickly, and it is very well balance ( one realizes playing sitting without strap, for example).
Note that I do bring a max of the strings of the handle, I do not know if the silent rglage original (purchase). Since it allows me a VLOC and precision INCOII!

Do you get a good sound easy?
oh yes! There is something for every taste!


Appropriate are your style of music?
For me, this is THE ultimate versatile bass. Groove, funk, (acid-) jazz, afro, rock, dub, mtal ... Note the excellent "jazzrock" possible, trs nasal (not my cup of tea)
Now it is true that all rglages have something in common: the sound is warm. I do not recommend the "passive", which most of the gadget Relva my opinion.

With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I tried on a lot of amps (less than 2000 euros), which is a near flawless (Reserved Hartke heads on, where I find all a bit cold ) and Best Sound MARKBASS with GK.
level pedals: the inevitable Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah, groove-rock guaranteed rsultat

What kind of sound you get and with what rglages
Base, there are many serious, so do not hsiter down a bit. But overall, more possibilities than most basses I tried. The quality is such that I am using almost the qualisation more amps!
el jazz micro severe low back and mdium in the middle, acute lgrement baisss
for the funk: microphones acute, acute and severe substance mdium in the middle.
for the slap: I vary the rglages ... everyone gots his

What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
as I said, the function is passive mdiocre my ears
The microphone is a serious killing!


How long have you use it?
just over 3 years.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
I love its versatility, its look and sound personality!
What I like least ... The fragility and salissantet the table.

Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Then it is that the bt hurts I wanted m'quiper a budget of 700 euros. So I tried the new low in a range of 700 1000 euros.Et this incredible opportunity hit me: 900euros for it sold by the guy who bought a new 1800 week before and needed money urgently ...
Obviously then, it Exceeds all others in this price range!
I confess to having little essay Chres low as:
-Musciman: ergonomics is so diffrent it is difficult to compare, even if I find the Stingray a little more "manly"
US-Jazzbass Fender 5 string active ... okay this is better ... but if you find less than 1500, even secondhand ...

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Oh yes!

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

Warwick FNA Jazzman 5
The features have already been given, I will not dwell


Channel: unglazed (low waxed) very nice, perfect access to acute
Ergonomics: Perfectly balanced weight equivalent to a JazzBass, no problem to play the bass with no strap on the thigh (which is not the case with Greg Curbow Cort for example, but do not compare what is not comparable ...)
Do we get easily a good sound ...? I would rather ask how to get a bad sound! Because apart from having the strings that are fifteen years old I do not see how ...


Very versatile, but still very typical jazz (fans of Anthony Jackson to play the thumb), nu-jazz (Roy Hargrove amateurs: playing muted notes on the left hand), merge (Pastorius fans: playing above the micro acute), metal (big slap in the Trujillo out of hell even with a heavy guitar riff that covers everyone in normal-jerks guitarists).

Types of sounds that I use most: équalo dug with heavy bass and treble very serious crystalline slap to play thumb and finger close game to the handle, over medium to the game above the micro acute .

Amp: SWR. No effects


I use it for 5 years

I tried dozens of models before you buy

This is not the kind of bass that have little to say that there are things that we like or not like. It's a real musical instrument, not a toy plastoc home Squier or other shit. Lets get it, you play it, we live, and it gets off.
The best
