    What would you all recommend for a warwick corvette standard?

    If the style of music makes a difference then I play funk/blues. I am an all round kind of guy

    I have a Warwick Corvette Standard 5 and I've had the best luck with Warwick Black Label Mediums.

    I've tried DR, GHS, and D'Adarios but I never got the tone and response out of them like I did the Warwicks. Plus, the Warwicks are tapered, which is a must for the B string in the Warwick bridge. You can find them at Musician's Friend or all over Ebay.

    DR high beams sounded great on mine

    RIGHT NOW I'M USING Ernie Ball REG. SKINKIES ON MY 4-STRING. I LIKE THE FEEL & SOUND OF THEM.

    I have been through probably 8 to 10 different string brands on my corvette standard 5 and I just recently ended my search, DR Low-riders have the most delicious tone I have heard come out of that bass yet!

    they are brite but not too brite, very punchy and have such a beautifully balanced tone. I read the various reviews before I tried them and everyone else seems to love theirs too. They really shine through on the warwick!

    +1 on the Lo-Riders. I used the 45-105 gauge on my old Corvette and they sounded great.
