Wich one of this would you get?
I have only played the Thumb 6, I can't judge the others. I really was diggin the Thumb anyways.
Here is the one I played...
hey man, did you get your Curbow?
I'm think about buying a warwick for outside gigs.....OH MY G-D! I can't belive I said that!!.I meant I am gonna buy a Spector performance series for outside gigs I get those two mixed up sometimes
Make sure whatever Warwick you get has the Basslines systems. They rock!
I would go Thumb, but would need the wenge neck. I don't trust ovangkol, espedcially on a six.
Come on Zulu, ovangkol is not that bad. If Warwick had to choose a cheaper wood to cut costs, why didn't they just go with maple then? I doubt your average piece of maple is more expensive or better than ovangkol!
Ovangkol is just fine as neck wood. But wenge is better.
As far as I know, Ovangkol is more expensive than Wenge.
The think is that Wenge is not widely available right now, and they had to opt to use Ovangkol instead to mantain the production rates.
I would go the Thumb route...but that's just me.
That page is great, the heading(one of them anyway) says "Multi-String Basses". Where's that fake one-stringer pic when ya need it?
Hans Peter Wilfer said that they chose ovankol, because of it's tone, and it's much easier to work with.
ovankol....it just sounds cool dosent it?
not as cool as wenge.
ok - if ovangkol sounded the same, and was just as strong, and felt the same, i STILL would rather have wenge in my thumbs neck just because the ovangkol is ugly as hell.
try a Warwick Streamer Stage I 6? 20mm string spacing at bridge. have fun
go for the LX. Its the better bass though it´s cheaper. No neck-diving, better tone (for my taste and use - so it should also be for you), looks better .
Anyway, I´d chose the Basslines System, it really roxx..
mmmm basslines... *drooool*
Yeah, I think I could ask the management of the Local Warwick store to let me try one of those..
Upps.. I hapen to be the manager/owner of the local Warwick store...
No, seriously I did consider the Stage I but I dont want a maple neck and the price is almost twice compared to the LX.
And the space on that one is 20mm as the LX Broadneck but damn it is big and 20 mm is just too much for my small hands.
actually.. the spacing on all Streamer Stage I 5 and 6s are all 20mm (
Yep, I got confused with the 4 string.
I still dont know why their broad´s have a string spacing even larger than their 4 strings.
20mm is just too much.
My hands are fine with 16.5mm and perform very comfortable at 18mm(my favorite)
Me? I'd go Thumb. It's really the only Warwick I like. Course, I havent Tried one of those new ones with the funky F holes (which ones are those?)
I like the Thumb BO the best. My only minor beef was the MECs...I'd replace those. But, then again, mine is a common sentiment.
Just IMHO....and of course,
