warwick strings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by bamaky1, Sep 24, 2010.

  1. Bought a pack of warwick red strings today for $8. Just 4 strings .45-.105. Ive used d"addarios for a while and was wondering how these strings last over time and compare to DRs, Dean Markley, D'addario and the usuals.. Tonally, feeling-wise, etc. Just wondering. Thanks.

    If theyre the same ones that where stock on the old bubinga corvettes, then theyre rather like Rotosound on a budget imo. Like rotosounds without the red silk wrap bassically.

    I've used Black label and have no problem, I do like DR's better.

    I use Red labels, and they seem to last quite well, have not noticed a change after four months....and I live 500m from the beach. I have them on my Warwick, and my BTB, and my homebuilt.

    I'm not a roundwound fan, so the only WW I've ever used are the EMPs, essentially coated Black Label. They last a lot.

    as much as i am a fan of warwick basses, i cant say the same for their strings.

    i used the Warwick 'reds' on a peavey grind, and it wa great (but i attribute it to my being new on gear and the fact that the grind came with really terrible strings).

    i bought a bunch of black labels and they felt stiff and rough.

    the EMP's on the other hand, were sticky.

    the only good thing about them, is that they last long ... the thing is, i took them off before they "died" just so i could use DR hi-beams on them.

    my Darklord though, is still strung with Warwick Black labels, just because they are my only set that has an F# string.

    I used the Warwick Reds a long time ago (and damn, $8 a set?! SCORE!) and they lasted alright; I'd say they were average in their longevity. Not as long as their Black Labels but sounded about the same.
