which do you prefer? why?
That's a pretty broad question, seeing how different the basses can be. I've owned both, and I liked each of them for certain things. What are you looking for? What are your priorities?
Stingray baby!!!!!! (because I said so!)
I prefer apples....no, wait--oranges.
No, I was right the first time. Apples, it is.
I have owned both and it really matters what kind of music you are going to use it for. I had a Thumb and a Stingray and used the stingray for the funky hard rock stuff and the Thumb for the jazzy funky stuff.
Seansbrew has the best signature this week.........period.
i got both, a thumb 5 b.o. and a '96 ray. neither can replicate the sound of the other.
in terms of what?
musicman has the best headstock but warwick has the best nut so i think its pretty even.
Both are great basses, I have owned both, it's a matter of taste.
For me...the Stingray is a nice bass, but for some reason I got tired of it, can't explain why, I wasn't happy with it and I didn't play well.
Warwick Streamer Stage I 5 is awesome....clear warm Fat sound..especially the B-string, I really loved it.
Now I'm looking for a new bass and the choice is between a Cirrus and a Warwick Streamer Stage I (again, hehe)
I've owned a Warwick Corvette and a Modulus Flea (which is a pretty stingray'ish). The Modulus was a better fit for me, but the Warwick definitely had its place. Take my opinion with a grain of salt as it is based on a Modulus Flea being similar to a stingray.
Good point. Everything has a place, and I'd say neither brand is better than the other. There is no reason to compare them when the original poster hasn't replied yet...
I own a Corvette, a Sterling and a Bongo.
I never play the Corvette.
I sold a Streamer Pro M and never missed it.
Musicman. Sterling, specifically. Largely because of balance and a smaller, more comfortable neck.
Personally, I have never picked a bass because of the headstock or the nut.
String Trees suck.
I didnt get the headstock and nut comment either. Those do not have anything to do with the sound of the instrument
I may be wrong, but I think metron was subtly pointing out that because the answer to this question depends on so many factors not addressed by the thread starter, you may as well base it on the asinine.
