    I'm getting a Warwick delivered from the factory some time next year (ordered it several weeks ago still hasn't come...) and like many wick owners I'm looking for a growling, funk sound.

    Do some strings make a difference in this area? Not neccesary just for Warwicks, but are there any strings people would have preference over for a more gospely growl sound? Of course I still need to slap it!

    Cheers

    what Gauge pro steels are best?
     
  4. D'Addario Pro Steels. Bassically the brightest strings I could get.

    Look into DR Bootzillas - they bring the FUNK!

    Weather you Go with Lowriders, Bootzillas, or even Marcus millers - DR strings can Bring the noise:bassist: If you have a Good amp you will be able to dial in the mids and hear how bright those strings are - Get Funky!!!
     
  14. I don't know if they are still around but Warwick use to market a string that had the rawest growl I ever heard.
     
  15. +1. DRs seem to be in the majority and for good reason. I swear, Lo-Riders made my Squier sound like a Jaco Custom shop reissue.
     
  16. Another +1 for DR strings. Try the different kinds and pick the one you like. They all work great.
     
  17. Ken Smith's also make for some monster growl. I just put a set on my Spector Euro. The purple cloth ends are pretty cool lookin too :)
