I've not heard anyone mention anything about warwick at NAMM, were they there?
i'm sure they were. i guess everyone just had more important things to check out.
Yep, right across the aisle from the Dean girls
I guess I didn't see too much of the Warwicks.
After last year, they ought to be ashamed of themselves. The Katana and Chrome Streamer were horrible ideas, IMO.
They were there. I didn't see anything new or 'show-stopping' though.
Same with Pedulla. They had several nice basses; just nothing new. (Don't get me wrong. I think Pedulla makes good instruments.)
Have you played the Katana? It sounds wonderful. And the Chrome Tones must be the ultimate metal basses, right ? I've played one of those too, and guess what? They sounded great!
Nick you need to check out the new dual humbucker corvettes.They look sweet and will prolly sound as good as they look.
WHOA!!! What were those double MM style Warwicks?? Now THAT's what I'm talkin about!
The Chrome bass isnt really anything new! I believe Stuart Zender was the first to have one made (the Godzilla Bass) followed by some others - it just took Warwick a few years to realise that they could make some money out of it!
These are the one's I'm interested in.
+1! As ugly as I think they are, they sound DAMN good.
I actually like the looks too! They remind me of Cadillacs, or a beautiful leaf or something.
My god, what is that?
I guess it's another way to honour Entwistle?
Its interesting how those dual MM Corvettes have the pickups back to back. I wonder if that was there method to maintain the Musicman "sweet spot" logic while still allowing for 2 MM pickups. I'm curious to know the tonal differences between that type of 2 MM, a "Bongo" type of 2 MM and a single MM setup.
I like those new twin humbucker corvettes. But i have serious GAS for a streamer jazzman.
these must be there new design. A waste of time IMO. Much too common
I think everyone missed the Warwick booth because it was right across from Dean, and oh, the Dean babes, mmmmm, they we're, um, distracting.......
I walked past the Warwick booth and was nabbed (by my "media" badge) by Dale Titus who, according to his card, is regional sales manager for DanaBGoods.
Anyway, my point is - what a nice guy. He was genuinely interested in the bass community and very supportive of talkbass and basstasters. A salesman sure, but definitely a cut above the norm.
Any Warwick requests for basstasters in the near future?
