Bonne.Basse Really not very heavy, thick, with a rather round handle, the head tends to dive, the nut head is very short, the 2 microphone are very (too?) near the bridge, "making it awkward for a thumb to anchor near the neck (not a problem for me though)." The body is relatively small, "but comfy." Access to treble is very good. But access to the grave is not pleasant "(small upper horn)." Large hands so required !! However, a few simple bass to play.

The handle wenge dchire. A very rough look, but still very soft. it means a relatively requiet waxage as beacoup warwick.

The rest properly on. The straps are etaches nickel.


two words. Punch & "Growl" (sound of scrap metal? If you see ske j'veu say!). I ssay new model but no really happening to him at the ankle. This is the true "Heavy Metal Machine". Extremely powerful sound with end trsmtalique rating, and very very articulated a sonority (conprhenssif by ear). Sound very modern, aggressive, The Slap are very "slamming" !. It also sounds good in passive and active. I am not a fan of the electronic system MEC but they really did a good job.

"Can obtenir a silky, full sound with a bit of adjustment preamp and a softer touch. Sound Becomes less in your face, and fills the space without being white muddy," with what his own conprss to WARWICK


Low gniale, look fabulous (which agrees well with the color of the skin), a very distinctive signature sound.

But not easy to use it. Beacoup are Prepared for having that sound very metal. I will not but I made do. Now I am in search of a bass with a similar sound with as much punch, "growl", but clmente with shoulders and wrists!
