    Hey,

    I had to sell my Ray because I needed money, and as Rays sell new for ~ $1500 in germany, I was able to sell my Ray for $1200 (hehe I bought it for $850).

    And now, I own this bass:

    Used Warwick Streamer LX 5 in mint condition (its better than mint). Translucent red over Solid Quilted Maple Body, 3-Band Bart E.Q., MEC SingleCoils.

    The Bass sounds, play incredible, especially the E.Q. is great.
    I´m really happy with it and it makes a great match for my trans-red Yamaha RBX6JM !

    I second the welcome to the club (I have a ray 5 as well). I dont normally like red finishes but the combination with the maple has made me a convert. Remember, to play it a lot.

    Now we are family man!!!
    Congratulations..
    So does the MEC 3 way perform a lot better than the 2 way?
    I dont seem to like the 2 Way too much,it muddies up the sound and makes the highs too harsh.

    Well, no mud with my Warwick, just very clean, cutting tone.

    I first thought that it wasn´t really suitable for the music I played when I played at the store I found it at, but after fiddling with the controls a little bit, I found a great tone, it now sounds like John Myungs tone on "Falling Into Infinity", which I didn´t expect from a J/J Pickup config.

    Anyways, a little tweaking and its got really growly mids...

    I knew the 3 band was a lot better....
    Well, I will put a Basslines STC3A there anyway.
    :)

    Lets ask for our threads to be merged... after all we got warwick basses almost together and they are almost the same type.
    Hehehe

    *lol* and we play pretty much the same music, have pretty much the same influences, and you´re WAY older then I ;-).

    I thought about a Pickup Upgrade, too, but for me, the bass sounds totally perfect now, also in Band Situation. I just recorded the bass straight into my Behringer Mixer in my little "Studio" (Behringer Mixer, Roland Synth, Quaisimidi Synth, Logic Audio Sequencer, Pentium IV 1,6 GHZ System - I´m doing some house/funk/elektro stuff just for fun as well as some progressive trance (please don´t laugh, I like doing it))

    The Bass Sounded great even directly recorded with everything flat. Hell, I always thought the Ray sounded great...

    Sorry to hear that. :p No, kidding aside, that's a nice looking NS-5 you got there. :D

    Really. It's a beautiful bass. The gold looks great w/the trans-red & quilted body. I always liked no markers on the fretboard. Congrats.
