    I just picked up a Warwick Streamer Stage II 5 in a trade with TBer Woodchuck. I'm looking forward to trying it out on the gig tonight. I had a 4 string version years back and it was absolutely one of the best sounding basses I've owned and I've owned alot.

    Pics and review coming tomorrow!

    Ahhh this is a great bass. Stupid Guitar Center had one hanging up when they sold the 5 stringer I was looking into...

    Of course I had to buy it... I found a website www.basscentral.com and they have them for $2400 where G.C. wanted $2900. So I got them to knock the price down to match it and then got 10% for the Black Friday deal they had going on before 10 am.

    IT IS THE GREATEST BASS IN THE WORLD. I am getting after market pickups for my Thumb so it can sound even remotely close to the tonal range of that bass. The dense wood (Afrezelia) really does give it great tonal characteristics which those stock MEC's really enhance.

    Highly suggest picking one up. I am selling 2 basses to have this one. Well worth it, especially when I will never touch them again when this bass is in my hands all the time.
     
  14. I hate you Stage 2 guys! :spit:

    Beautiful bass!

    I love it. I want a stage II, but I just can't justify the improvement over my corvette. I know the stage II is a better bass, but the monitary difference is not worth it for me. However, when I start me now job next year...........Stage II, here I come!!

    If only Warwick would make a Streamer Stage II six string...any ideas why they don't? I've been in love with them ever since I saw Chuck Rainey using one on an instructional tape I have...they rock! Congrats on the new bass! :cool:
     
  17. Chuck Rainey has an instructional tape?!?!?! I gotta get that :D


    Hey, if any of you Stage II guys are looking to sell / trade one...let me know :help:

    Yes Lokire, Chuck has two instructional tapes...both by Hotlicks.

    The first one is is described by Hotlicks.com as follows...


    [​IMG]
    "Bass for Beginners" features: Tuning the bass, hand techniques, learning the notes, on the neck, the major & minor scales, blues and R&B patterns and the 12-bar R&B progession, training the ear, developing a good touch, creating practise routines, and much more. (34 min.) LEVEL 1-2"

    In the second video, he's using a Spector... :rollno: No that I dislike Spector, but after playing a Warwick...

    [​IMG]
    "The Legendary Bass Of" features: Thumb slap technque, development of lines & right hand speed, chord theory & shapes, octave exercises, walking basslines, R&B, funk & country styles, slap & pop, "ghost" notes for rhythmic propulsion, improvisational skills, working with the drummer and much more. (60 min.) LEVEL 3-4"

    The second one looks a little bit more interesting...

    They make a Streamer Stage I in a six string version. The Streamer Stage II is already pushing the 10 pound mark so an extra string may make it so heavy that all the old timers wouldn't be able to hold it.

    From what I see, the stage I is the same except for the wood and the 4 string version has a P style neck pickup and J bridge pickup where the stage II is straight J-J pickups (Thus the Stage "II" get it? i just figured that out because the J pickups look like "I"s) hehe
