Thumb V.S. Jazz

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by GrooveMonkey, Jul 30, 2003.

  1. Yesterday when I got my new cabinet, I checked it first with my HW1 Jazz Bass and then with the Warwick Thumb.

    The Jazz Bass has a nice warm, full sound when slapped and popped. The Warwick no matter what the EQ settings sounded thin and brittle in comparison. I like the Warwick's woody tone when playing fingerstyle but find myself liking the Jazz Bass as an all around good tone.

    What can I do to make the Thumb sound more like the Jazz? Change pickups or preamp?

    I really like the feel and looks of the Warwick.
