Romanian Warwick Endorser Florin Barbu was born into a musical family and discovered
the bass at age 14. In 1996, he was voted the best bass player in all of Romania. In addi-
tion, Florin is not only famous among Warwick fans for being a seasoned musician. As
the administrator of the official Warwick forum, he proves his impressive knowledge of
our instruments and amplifiers time and time again.
We are now proud to announce that Florin, who is the founder of the Romanian indie
group "Partizan", is now the bass player for the successful heavy metal band "Cargo"
featuring Framus endorser Adrian Igrisan on vocals and guitar. Sporting a band history
of almost thirty years, the group is now probably Romania's most loved rock band, and
various of its albums have sold more than a million copies. Florin, Adrian, and the band
are currently in the studio in order to record "Cargo"'s latest album.
Both live and in the studio, Florin swears by his Streamer Stage II basses and the
Hellborg amp system, which give him the huge, transparent tone that his accomplished
and versatile style requires. We would like to congratulate Florin from the bottom of
our hearts. All of us are very proud that the Warwick family now counts the bass player
for one of Romania's most successful groups among its members!
