    My local music shop has 2 Warwick Bass heads in stock. Since my hartke was shooting sparks out, and it has spent the month in the shop, ive been debating getting one of these heads for under $500.

    The one that i like is the Pro-fet 5.1

    500watts @ 4 ohm
    4 Band Eq w/ Deep and Bright Switches
    Switchable compression

    My question is to anybody who has a warwick head or amplification product. Are you happy with them, and how do they sound?
     
  2. Had mine for about 4 months, selling it because its just too quiet....doesn't appear to be anywhere close to 500watts, even at 4ohms.

    I have the lower wattage ProFet (see sig), and for the price I am very happy with it. With a Warwick bass & cab it can sound pretty damn warm for a solid state head, and the sound is quite clear also.

    Buuuut... it will be gone as soon as I can decide on a better head. Can't do tubesque overdrive sounds with it and the wattage is a bit low for me (no adequate headroom).

    So, a good bang for the buck but not perfect.
