    Hey everyone. I'm really considering putting up my streamer stage ii for sale and moving on to a new 5 string. Great bass I but the tone doesn't seem to go with the cover bands I'm playing in these days. So I always end up bringing my sadowsky rv4 or sometimes my old Rick 4001 which seem to both sit in the mix better than the Warwick. So I'm looking at??:

    1). Modulus Quantum 5
    2). Sadowsky NYC 5 string (not sure of which wood options)
    3). Other higher end 5 string which can do cover bands to jazz that are light with a great neck.

    Man I love the tone of my ss2 and pnut bass. Just keep the ss2 and take your sadowsky out for those gigs

    My bass instructor gigs 4-5 nights a weeks in cover (R&B, Rock, Funk), jazz and original solo performances too. His basses of choice are 6 and 7 string Roscoes. I got to play his 7 string today. Nice and light, not much heavier than my 5 string Streamer Jazzman. The tone of his Roscoes are super clear and fat. 35 inch scale makes the B string tight and punchy. The fret boards are roomy with the 19mm string spacing. I have small hands so it was a big stretch for me to play. Very nice bass indeed.
    On the other hand. I love my Streamer Jazzman 5 string to death and find that with it's huge variety of tonal options it handles any cover style you can throw at it. It doesn't scream "I'm a Warwick!" like most of the other models do. I can when EQ'ed for it though.
    For me the only tone it doesn't get close enough too is a Pbass. A 5 string Pbass is the next bass on my horizon.
    Another excellent versatile option is the Lakland 5502. Incredible tonal options! I loved the sound of mine I just couldn't play the 19mm spacing with the 35" scale. It killed my small hands.

    Spector US Bolt-On (NS5-H2)... highly underrated and very versatile IMO and IME.

    thanks guys. I'll take a look at the spector as well kspinesh. For solo bass, I really do like the stage ii. Great for chord style with the tight string spacing. My bass is perfectly balanced even though approching 10lbs.

    Thought about it, but I already have one. The rosewood neck was awfully tempting though.
