    '99 Warwick Streamer Stage 1 Five string w/ factory Basslines and Warwick Black label (med) strings...

    I love how my SS1 plays, love how it looks and love how I don't need to see the chiropractor after a four hour gig but...I wish it had more signature growl like my Thumb 6 NT. I know the streamer's maple and only gonna growl so much but still, any ideas? EQ thoughts? Hardware? I'm not opposed to changing strings, p/ups or pre.

    Any help is appreciated!

    i did not the warwick strings, and noticed a huge positive change in tone when i put on my fav strings, dr high beams. the streamer is never gonna get the growl like a thumb, so i would just enjoy the beautiful, signature tone of your bass, but try adding some mids, and just play with your electronics till you find that tone that makes you smile.
  4. Dean Markley SR2000 strings. probably the most aggressive sounding strings I've come across...
    they will deff help that baby to growl!
