i have sudden urges for a warwick corvette std, passive one.....i just had to say it
me too... that's really weird and i never even liked warwicks until about a week ago. i guess it just took some time.
You become a beleiver when you can play one that is brand new, or properly set up and hasn't been collecting dust, dings and warpage from Guitar Center for years on end.
I want one so bad too...
i think a guitar center would be good....
ive only ever played a 5 string active corvette.....but i really liked it..would love to play a 4
My passive corvette 4 is a great bass. Those MEC's really have a lot of punch, even for being passive. I string mine with Roto flats, sounds great. The neck is pretty darn chunky, especially past the 12th fret, but man does it GROWL
I've sooo tried to dig Warwicks. I love the way people who use them sound.... it just can't dig on their vibe when it comes from my hands.
I'd love a wide spaces neck-thru Dolphin or Thumb 6 fretless if such beasts can be had.... but everytime I pick a Warwick up.... meh, I need to go pick something else up quick.
what whould u considered to be more desired, the passive or active?
Did you have to say it on TB though?
yah, me too...
There was a Thumb 5 lefty hanging on the wall at one of my local stores (very rare!).
It was at the same time that I was looking to pull the trigger on a 5 banger. Dangerous!
I played around on it for about an hour, and it just didn't give me the vibe. Nice bass, right here now in my hands, but....
I have a fretless that sounds great (lots of mwah). I had the chance to play a fretted one last week and really liked it.
Maybe a bit trebly but that was easily solved with some eq tweaking.
quit whining mark...at least i didnt say the dreaded K word
IMO people are moving more towards active basses these days...but im really diggin passiveness these days...im considering taking out the preamp on my KSD and rewiring it like a std fender
or just wire it for a push/pull active/passive knob
Heath did you ever pick up a hoppus bass?
The Thumb BO can be had in Wideneck - 20mm spacing.
But, the neck and balance can be a ruiner for some.
The older ones are supposed to have better neck profiles and a bit better balance (due to the slightly different shape)
my Ksd is active/passive....just that im barely using the active pre anymore...
i havent had the chance to yet...but i played a classic series 60's jazz today with flatwounds on it....and thats challenging the hoppus for the blues gig
