    Does anybody know if its possible if warwick does custom orders or if i can get a thumb bass like his black ones? Does anybody know if anything is diffrent from the stock one? And to anybody who has seen them live I swore I thought I also seen a green stained thumb bass. Has anybody else seen this?

    Go to Warwickbass.com, load the price list/options that should tell you the costs to expect. I think a gloss stain finish is a 300 dollar option on instruments that feature satin stained finishes.

    Don't know if this is an option on the Thumb as most have a natural finish.

    He only played a Bubinga Thumb, and the Black Thumb when I saw them on the Sanitarium Tour, so I can't comment on whether he has a green one or not. Wouldn't surprise me though, I imagine Warwick is giving him instruments left and right.

    Have you checked out the newest DVD, I bought and I think the sound is really bad on it.

    They posted a video on the official site from a Warwick promotional video thing where Ryan was featured. He had about 5 basses on his rack I think (around there)

    One of them being the new Vampyre one. Meaning 4 of them were the Thumbs. I know he has a 4 and 5 Bubinga NT's, and at least the black Thumb 4.

    The only thing custom that I know of on his Thumbs are that he has Ebony boards on all of them. Of course the black one is a custom finish, but still just a Thumb with an Ebony board. I've seen them several times now, and all that I have seen in terms of his basses were 4 and 5 string Thumbs. I didn't see a green tinted one, but that doesn't mean that he doesn't have one. Warwick is very liberal with their endorsement deals.

    you have the custom options at the warwick site, listed with price, but custom-made Warwicks are quite expensive...

    the German site has some featured customs every now & then...
    http://www.warwick.de
    and from there, the German and Custom Shop...

    Anyway, a thumb sounds and looks good enough by itself... And my corvette 6, too :D :D

    I was just pointing out that there are so many people here who enjoy reading the posts and will want to know new things about bassists and basses so the best thing to do is say "Ryan from Mudvayne" or "Robert from Metallica" or "Whoever from whatever band"

    Agreed...I just started to listen to mUdvayne but as soon as I heard their song "Wolrd so Cold"...I went and bought the their latest CD..then I bought the older one...then I bought the live DVD...pretty cool stuff as far as Ryan the bassist goes...to me he has quite a unique playing style and tone....on the live DVD Ilove how he stalks the stage at times like he's a beast looking for his next meal! Just pure energy coming out of him.

    The only thing "custom" about his basses are the ebony frettboard and 18volt electroics. The paint is something warwick will gladly do if u ask them for it. I believe its a small upcharge. Then again...a warwick with paint just pisses me off. They are far too pretty to be painted.

    Sensible question, man, don't feel too out of it. While I know who he is by proxy from round here, i've never seen or heard him/them myself. Apparently plays Warwicks, though, and pretty well.

    I think I'm almost afraid to give them a listen, afraid that I'll just hear another Fieldy or something.

    Can anybody give me an approximation of how Ryknow and Mudvayne sound? Just spelling things like that makes me think awful things about the band (although bands like Korn and Linkin Park *have* put out tunes I enjoy...)
     
  12. Certainly.

    They really are a pretty good band. If you like some of the KoRn stuff you *may* like some of the Mudvayne stuff. It's pretty heavy so if you don't like heavier stuff you may not like them. The Tool/Slipknot comparison isn't too bad, though much more towards the Tool side.

    I'd suggest downloading "Death Blooms" (first CD), "World So Cold" (2nd CD) and "Not Falling" (2nd) as starters so see how you like them. Those are pretty good and show some of the variance they have in their music.

    for truly "heavy stuff", check out Naked City's Torture Garden.

    everything else pales, sorry.

    Well, I really like Tool a lot so I'll have to give them a try. Slipknot thus far have been pretty much "okay" from what I have heard.
