Can anyone tell me if this bass has active pickups?
Depends on the model. They make both active and passive rockbass corvettes.
What he said. I got dual humbuckers on mine
Good news, I took the cover off and found a nine volt. Changing it out seems to have it performing better. However, it is too powerful for my Vox AP2-BS. It just distorts every note.
Maybe you have your gain setting too high for the amp to handle the output from your bass after refreshing the battery. Lower the gain on your amp a bit and increase the volume to your desired levels and see if that does anything.
My very first bass was a Warwick Corvette Rockbass. Broke the truss rod years ago and haven't played since.
But I recently got a new neck for it online and had it shipped. A local luthier fit it, adjusted it, and did a setup for me, and now it plays/sounds great again. So glad to have mine back. They're really good basses.
Thanks for the tips. I played around with it to no avail, however, I'll keep trying.
I am really happy with my Rockbass. I just picked it up last night and I am still getting to know it.
I liked my Warwick rockbass corvette 5 er.
And ya....it's beastly loud lol.
Look inside the control cavity and look for a small pot. Not all the electronics are the same but my thumb nt5 there was a tiny Gain pot inside the bass.
Stupid reply but make sure you’re not running all of you tone controls at max. They are all boost / cut. If you bottom all of them out are you still hitting the amp too hard??
No if I bottom them out it is ok.
Have you looked at the Warwick website? Here it is: en/Home.html
Go to Warwick, the English link should open, open products, then finally Electric Bases. Click Rockbass and choose which of the three you have or want. There are three lines of Warwick, Rockbass being the entry line. You should find all you want to know about your Rockbass here.
That website is an abomination. They should be ashamed of themselves. No possibility to link to the right page, the layout is really poor. /sigh
Just saw one today on CL at our local pawn museum. A low price for the pawn museum, who usually wants 10 times what they have in it, and will not come of a cent to make the deal. I'd go look at it but I've been there and they don't act very friendly about wanting to sell things.
But it's parked back in my head calling for me.
Possibly the German Warwick site is not so great. On my laptop I open Warwick (the English site), then products, then Electric Bass, then Rockbass, then choose which Corvette model I'm interested in. That took me all of about 15 seconds. Once I choose a bass I just click on the picture of that bass, then click on specifications. Now you will know if it's passive or active, and string spacing, dimensions, weight, etc. I don't know about the German website so I can't comment on it, but I'm guessing the OP will go to the English site, and it seems fine.
You might try lowering your pickups, if you haven't already done so.
