    Hey i was just looking at www.musiciansfriend.com and i saw they had a Streamer Standard 5 with one pickup for only $399. I just bought a new bass for around the same price and im comming up on some quick money and im thinking about buying the warwick too, do you think this is a awesome deal i shouldn't pass up? This isnt one of the Rockbass models either its a real streamer standard.
     
  2. it is a good deal but id spend the extra money on the 2 pickup version. I have the 2 pickup 4 string model.

    Sounds like a pretty good deal, if you are into those basses. I'd go for it if I was.

    have you ever played a Streamer standard? Many people have been dissapointed about these basses. A friend of mine has one... its ok.. If you want the "warwick" sound.. you may want to grab something else...

    just my 2cents

    haha well im afraid the "warwick sound" that comes from the streamer stage I and II's is a wee bit too expensive for me, I just want a bass i can get a good slap tone and midrange growl out of, as opposed to the low end of my Ibanez sr640

    well.. I wouldn't buy a warwick STD unless I had played on first. I have seen some lemons. How much are you looking to spend? You can get a nice MTD kingston for around $400-500.. the kingston is one heck of a bass IMO
