  1. Did anyone notice in the new Incubus video for "Wish You Were Here" Dirk Lance is playing a stupid Warwick Streamer Standard. In past videos he's used SS1's and SS2's and in the last video he even used an Infinity LTD and now this. I guess it doesn't really matter because it's not That bass that's in the song but if it's just for show why not use a showy bass.
  2. i don't know...maybe he felt like playing a different bass??? How do you know that he neve played it in the studio?:confused:
  3. Obviously you've never played one, otherwise you would realize the pointlesness of that question.

    Maybe the director liked it better for the shot. He/She decides after all...

    i just saw them in concert 2 night ago, talk about tone, this dude was oozing it. he had this deep end, oh man. he played 3 basses through the show. A 5 string streamer stage 2, a warwick fretless, maybe a streamer-dunno, and a vintage red fender jazz with a matching headstock. He was amazing though, i reccomend checkin them out live.
  8. Yeah, I've seen them live and they kick ass. While we're on the subject of the video, what the hell was up with the guitarists hair? He riminded me of Art Garfunkel.

    I don't think there was a director for that video. There isn't a director credited in the tags, and if you've been to lately, they've got a lot of video footage of their rehearsal area and house in hawaii (or wherever) and a lot of it looks like the video. At least in terms of lighting and camera angles and such. They probably shot the video themselves.

    Or maybe I'm full of it. ;)

    well...he is a warwick endorser, right?

    so maybe warwick said "you play our bottom end bass in your next video and you've got one free bass a year for the rest of your life" or something like that.

  11. Err, according to the warwick website he exclusively uses SSII, which is obvioulsy BS because he uses the infinity in the Drive video. Who know. Maybe he didnt want to mess his decent guitars up or that he forgot to bring his and the only warwick the local store had was a standard.

    true dat

  12. You wanna come here and say that?:mad: ;) I noticed that, too, and I was pretty excited to see him playing MY bass. :D Honestly, though, he sounds good, and what does it matter if he's playing a Streamer Standard? I've seen more than a could of guys play MIM fenders and sound great using them. Would you be happier if he was playing an Ibanez SR885 or some other "top of the line" Korean bass than a "bottom of the line" German model? I've said this before, but it's like comparing a loaded Kia to a BMW with no options.
  13. True, but compared to the other basses he's used on past videos, the streamer standard is like comparing a BMW 3.18i w/ no options to a fully loaded Z8. For those who don't know much about cars that's about 30,000 to 180,000.
    And anyway I'm not saying what he should be using, just wondering why he's downgrading so much in the same line. Considering it's just a video, he probably doesn't give a f**k anyway and just grabbed what he saw.
  14. I play a "stupid" Streamer STD. :(
    I like it fine, of course I'm always eyeing upgrades.

    ...and I hope your're not comparing that "loaded Kia" to the Fender :mad: :D
  16. Just because he poses with it in the video doesn't mean that he PLAYS it.
  17. Yeah and in the video he was wearing briefs when he normally wears boxers :D

    Wrong! He normally wears no underwear. I know from experience.:eek:
  19. I said it before, already. I'm not dissing anyone who plays a Streamer Standard but if you had the money, wouldn't you rather have a SSII or something. He can have whatever Warwick he wants and he chose the cheapest one. I think Warwick5S was right on. That's probably why he played it.

    He played it because they are selling it on ebay for the wtc fund. The band autographed the bass that he PLAYED IN THE VIDEO. If it were a SSII, there would be less profit to go towards the charity.
