    I was at the local GC today when i decided to check out the used Warwick Streamer Pro M (I am pretty sure that is the model name). IT plays very well, and was in great condition. The proce they were asking was around $1,100.00 Is that a good deal or what?

    The price is a tad high IMHO. I sold my '97 Pro M 4 banger for $900 and change on E-Bay. If you're willing to spend over a grand, I'd wait until a neck-thru model shows up somewhere. Might cost a few extra bucks, though. Either way, the German-made Warwick Streamers are kickin'.
     
  3. I got this cool limited edition pro M off Ebay (Germany) for 641 euro's! Now that's a deal! It's number 12 out of 22, specially made for Art of Sound's (German musicstore) 10th anniversary. It's got a maple board and some special painting on it which I like very much. I hope the postman delivers this week. I just can't wait to be honest.

    Laterr, Werner.

    I bought my Warwick Pro M new in '97
    and it's been my main instrument ever since.

    I highly recommend them.

    I gladly paid $1,500.

    Nothing else like it.

    The dual preamps kick major arse.

    Production began: late 1996
    Production ended: 2000
    Wenge Neck, Brass Nut, Inset Straplocks: late '96 -'98
    Ovangol Neck, Teflon Nut, Strap Buttons: late '98 - 2000.
    Crafted from select flamed maple, the Streamer Pro-M is precision cut
    and hand-shaped with meticulous attention to detail unmatched by any
    other bass in any price range. The concave back is curved inward,
    making it uniquely comfortable to wear. The body's top is overflowing
    with curves and contours making it one of the most fluid body
    shapes in the Warwick family.
    The twin jazz pickups mounted in the harmonic "sweet spot"
    combine with all of the fine craftsmanship to make this bass
    a serious workhorse for the most discriminating players.
    All Streamer Pro M basses come with 2 onboard active preamps.
    Note: even though the Pro M looks like it has just one humbucking pickup,
    it actually has two separate J-style pick-ups.
    Each pick-up has its own individual stacked bass and treble control.
    The top knob boosts or cuts the treble
    and the bottom knob boosts or cuts the bass.
    AAA Flamed Maple 2-piece Body,
    3 piece Wenge Neck, oil finished,

    Review by Scott Malandrone
    Sound - 5
    "Funk Approved Tone"
    "The Streamer's single pick-up leaves plenty of room to slap and pop."
    "The overall playability of this axe is very good..."
    "...The Streamer ProM has a tone that's tailored to be heard in funk or heavy-rock gigs."

    Why did they stop the production on this model? They seem great.

    I had one for awhile, I know I paid less than $900 brand new for it. Of course, that was like 3 or so years ago. I really regret selling it, it was a fantastic bass. I had 5 string envy at the time. doh!
