    In my advertising class, we have to do an ad campaign on a company that we choose, and my partner and I chose Warwick. One of the things we have to do, is do a survey. So if you can please, fill this out.


    1. How long have you been playing Warwick basses?
    2. For what reason(s) did you buy your Warwick bass?
    3. Which of their basses do you currently own?
    4. Are you satisfied with your purchase?
    5. In the future, would you consider buying another Warwick?
    6. Have you tried Warwick amps?
    7. What were your impressions?
    8. What about the new Rockbass series?
    9. What were your impressions of them?
    10. Where do you see Warwick advertised?


    Thanks in advance.

    What about them?
    I don't do impressions
    In Warwick Adverts
















    The Rockbasses are ok for the money. The BIG manufacturers followed Fender's lead (Squire in 82) of providing official copies the 'pro' versions. The Corvette is a very nice bass and competes nicely with the Fender MIM range. The Fender may have a higher resale.

    Warwick advertise in the major UK guitar/bass mags for example Guitarists and Guitar AKA TGM. THe UK importer MAD Distribution are present at all the major music gear shows which is currently limited to Musiclive (I think).
