Warwick Thumb Bolt-on 6
bolt on neck
2 microphones bartolini
a switch passive / active useful lifting or pushing the volume knob
adjusting the frequency of mediums, intensity
adjusting the balance between the two microphones
severe acute setting


wide neck but despite this it is a treat, the strings are not too far apart
Access to Acute is correct, but on 6 strings ... we do not go too

level of ergonomics that is or is not his strong point at all:
I have to play sitting down, because the dorsal horn of the bass is too short and it is therefore offset (lower left too) to play standing
weight ... it weighs three donkeys dead ...


I play on a Genz-Benz Shuttle 6.0

the sound is easily adjustable for a warm sound with powerful bass and round, but also for dynamic sound for a more funk typed


owned for 2 years

most: the look, sound
the less the weight, standing

yes I will ever choose without hesitation

Warwick Thumb Bolt-on 6
Made in Germany
24 frets fictitious (we're on a fretless)
2 Micro Bartolini
The bridge is a marvel of reliability and robustness (short is German)
Volume / balance in passive configuration
Volume-Balance-severe acute active configuration
Changing active / passive is done by pulling / pushing the volume button
Bne-type handle or driver through the back on the edge of the handle are perfect for getting together. I t trs ease quickly.


In the beginners it is a bit Drout by the size of the handle (it is on a 6 string). I possde also two old fender precision of 68 and 69 frets and fretless and Difference in size is staggering. But the violin is of such quality (that is to say little in terms of violin is perfect) that we quickly get used to rev to the point that when you go back on the fender was the imptression have a stick in his hands.
CHAC is easy to acute but as a 4 string fretless we tend to go down the handle on a 6 string, I use only rarely trs there.
Ergonomics are good, but I blame him:
The horn-hook on which the strap is short, so that the position of the lower body from the DCAL to the right and the top of the handle of the blow is far beyond the fender ( we must reach out to sit or play be comfortable when playing at the top of a long handle)
-The weight (this is the wood used which also helps to play the NCESS sitting

I put 9 because of the weight and standing


The sound is the highlight:
micro Bartolini (I dj understanding are because that's what I put on my dj fender fretless)
The sustain is standard (mainly of wood and neck-through)
Briefly about my EAR is a rgal (his Pastorius, Caron, Wooten insured)
In fact it sounds dj non branch is a sign that never fails
Another highlight the uniformity of sound on all strings (you can switch the game in the trs trs severe acute without a feeling of hole)
May be a lack of sharpness that bad (but I think I need to increase pulling)
Recording the diffrence between the thumb is empty and fretless precision: the thumb there are serious ...


I use it for 2 months

What I like least: the weight
What I like most about the sound, the comfort of the handle, and beauty (the violin is frankly gorgeous)
I tried a lot of bass but never enough t convinced by the diffrence with my old I possde precision for over 30 years.

Report QualitPrix: the price that I paid hand, the ratio is more than excellent: 1500 euros, nine is a different story (it is around 3400 euros)
But I do not regret anything so I am considering buying a 6 string warwick fret

Warwick Thumb Bolt-on 6
Hi! all

Well, here is a low (German) I use to replace a 6-string Noguera, and frankly it's the bass killer! The sound and really it is the norm and I expected with lots of depth in the bass (a special so bad!) And superb clarity in the treble (I have my prt guitarist for private records and he fell on the c..!). I use strings EBS, the top with a rack full rglabe, up, down, right, left ... The pickups are MEC, pure bliss!
The quality of violin is irrprochable (as in all Warwick products!) The handle is in 5 parts (a pledge of strength and sustain) with a touch bne finely crafted, screwed in point 4.


The only BMOL, (as it should be noted that any instrument will never be perfection) is its weight! Really need a back four to play bttn 5am as I often do, the knowledge of muscle is not luxury, but no problem sitting with a lightweight all times slumps.
The handle is a bit much to dpart but if done quickly!
Access in the treble is more accessible through the wide notches of the body, when the interface is well with the back curved tudie Fawn cal well on a belly little "bounce"! It is easy to take a Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten and Alain Caron a, both at knobs are rglages trs prcis with a push pull for passive mode, because that is a low active recess!


All musical styles are easily adaptable here, with a real plus for the Jazz Rock, or fusion, but it is doing not too bad in the range Hard Rock, I use it recently with a head amp Berhinger WTTS 300 and a baffle of the same brand with 4 hp in cne Bugera aluminum and gives the sound of DSIR more than Jazzy punk! but in the Uzeb Jazz fusion, I m'clate the most!


I torture for over 5 years and for me it's low, both in style than anything else I have prcit recess MODELS number of essay, without having ever happened I expected the sound, until I were Submitted to the lovely ladies pronounced Germanic accent! The ratio quality price is unbeatable for me and also trs justification for a 6-string bass of this caliber it's worth breaking the piggy bank full of dusts over his cabinet, and without h sit I would do the same choice!

Warwick Thumb Bolt-on 6
German made, 26 boxes, 2 blocks Bartolini, neck-through in 7 parts and ovangkol bubinga, wenge button, WW bridge, nut independently adjustable ropes and 18-volt preamp.
Knob with a double volume and scale micro + push / pull active / passive, a medium and a double bass / treble.
Weight: 5.7 kg !!!!!


The handle is pretty hefty and heavy weight is a lot !!!!!!!!!!!!!
The shape of the body with very small dorsal horn that lacrosse is ahead on the left so you have to break the grip and get off the last boxes. More it stings the nose so you can do with dumbbells left arm.
Added to this my little hands, I had to stop playing it up because I had a sore wrist strength to break the strap and over the horn Laché me 2 times.
(Fortunately the rope so was there to catch all)
Otherwise sitting is really fun and access to treble is perfect.
The sound is there, no need to tinker.


The definition of the WW. It's very special and unique as its both. She has the strongest bass and treble too slammin (probably due to Bartos) and mediums ... listen to Mudvayne albums is the sound. By cutting the treble was more sound that Stuart Zender of Jamiroquai.
The neck pickup sounds and the parallel position differed little on the other hand bridge pickup gives you a near Jaco sound but not his technique, although ...
A little more variety would have been welcome to her.

This bass is made for big sound, I used to funk and metal is almost perfect (a little more ti fishing for treble)
The only small downside is that there is a blast to the amp with the treble at the bottom, inaudible as a group.

For brevity, I will say it is the sound Fender, Musicman sound and sound Warwick Thumb.


Purchased in 2002 to 2400 Eur okaz, it was a good deal because the price of new hurts approx. 3500 Eur. I tried at the same time, the Thumb Bolt-on 6 strings (much cheaper) but the view of the handle driver I did not hesitate.
You really feel like a sculpture in his hands.
Too bad she's so heavy.
