    I played through a Warwick combo last summer. It had a really nice zingy tone - similar to their basses - and all the fundamentals were there. I don't know the particular model I played through but it sounded good to me. If you see one try it you might like it too.

    The Quad IV is a nice sounding head. I played my Thumb though one with a Warwick 411 attached. It had great tonal controls.

    Way too expensive for 400 watts though (over $1,300 u.s.d.).

    Well, that's because you live on the wrong side of the Atlantic...

    They go for around US $1,000 over here.

  7. I have the warwick Sweet 15 Combo,


    it's a nice one, but it cannot cope with my humbucker (Warwick F.N.A. Jazzman 5-string)
    the 5th string with my humbucker does not work right with the sweet 15... the amp clips all the time when I pull the 5th string, so I have to put my gain BELOW 1 ....

    besides that, the Sweet15 has not got a tweeter, so the tones are not always like you want them to be..

    the tone from the Sweet15 has lot's of mid (it's a 15" speaker) but the clear sound is hard to find..

    but I bought it new for 400$ (in Germany, where they are made) so it's a good combo for 400$ !!
  8. I played with one of the heads once, but couldn't get a good sound out of it. After five minutes, I gave up. I figure if you can't dial in a decent sound in the first five minutes, the amp is too complicated for normal use or just doesn't suit my playing style.

    I like the idea of the one with the built-in tube power section in the preamp though. Cool idea.
