Hey guys, I own a recording studio and I'm in the market for a new bass... So I come here for some advice. First of all, I mostly deal with metal bands... from like "Black Label Society" to "The Black Dahlia Murder" (in terms of style... not fame ) so I need a 5 string. I need to be able to go to drop A basically. Second, I used to own a warwick rockbass corvette (so, basically, the chinese version and not the $$) and was honestly pretty satisfied with the sound... Not floored by it, even though i had nothing specifically against it. However I liked the overall looks of the bass and how solid it was. Third, it needs to be a bass that can used by bands I have in the studio... Some of those bass players... well, most of them aren't bass players, they're bad guitar players that hang out with their friends... So as much as I'd love to buy a german made warwick corvette $$ neck through with all the options, I am not ready to invest that much money so that people of questionable skills and questionable hygiene can put their questionable fingers on my bass So... With all that, I was wondering what you guys thought... I myself have been looking at either a warwick rockbass corvette $$ or a warwick pro series corvette. Do you think one is more suited than the other for my needs ? (I do like the exotic woods on the pro series, but I am curious about the $$ pickups)... Do you have other suggestions ? or a bass to sell ? Thanks in advance !
