Which one to gig with?
Ok if you had a choice to take to a gig with you regarding performance, cutting through, tone and reliability amongst other things, which one would it be?
-Warwick thumb nt4

Either would be fine but the Thumb gets the nod from me purely for aesthetic reasons ;)
|punkjazzben ||01-30-2014 05:33 PM |
I would definitely take the Thumb :)
|casotti1 ||01-30-2014 06:20 PM |
I think as different as they are in all ways, people are more conscious of appearance. Perhaps if the xl had the looks of the thumb it may be a bit different?

never played the xl but love my thumb
|Blue_Whistle88 ||01-30-2014 09:08 PM |
It'd be the Thumb for me too. They're famous for having a very cutting mid-range, and sit really well in any mix I find. They also look better IMO, though the neck dive might introduce palyability issues.

I'll choose the other one so it's feelings won't get hurt.
|Bassist4Eris ||01-30-2014 09:30 PM |
I'll choose the other one just because Warwicks have a bit too much growl for me (and I like a bit of growl).
If it was just on looks, I'd go with the Warwick, but honestly I'm not a fan of the looks of either of those basses.

Warwick, but I suppose the Steinberger could be a backup.

I've never gigged a Warwick, but I can say that I always found it amazingly easy to get good results with my Steinberger XL2. It was my go-to gigging bass for years. Compact, rugged, and stays in tune for weeks - literally.

Interesting range of responses.. I love both. There is something about the xl2 emg humbuckers and unique construction, yet the thumb with its own unique construction, eq, pickups and woods that are special as well

As with the others, Thumb all the way.
Very distinctive tone, great for cutting through. But hell, that Steinberger is small enough to bring to the gig in your back pocket as a backup, right? ;)
|casotti1 ||01-31-2014 07:46 AM |
It sure is! And it's got all the low end you need
|xkomo ||01-31-2014 07:48 AM |
Thumb all the way
