    I have looked in the newbie forums and havent found anything there, so I decided to post. Warwick just re-released this bass from what I gather and I was just wondering if any of you have gotten the exclsuive chance to play it? Hav you heard anything about this bass? It looks amazing, and it should sound as well, considering its price. Thanks in advance.

    I know they had this thing at NAMM so perhaps someone who attended the show (I didn't) might have played or heard it...

    Is this an upright?


    Oh. If it's like any other canoe, you could get a nice real bass for what one of those costs.

    Doesn't it look like an updated version of the old Framus electric upright?

    It is indeed an update of the Framus...Warwick was started by members of the family that used to own Framus. Hopefully they improved the pickup compared to the original :meh:

    so it prolly sounds like a big fretless bass guitar. I always like the way Eberhard Weber sounded. But ya know I heard parts of THE COLOURS OF CHLOE on the radio recently and on the cut LATER THAT AFTERNOON, he's playing a real bass.

    are there any EUB's that DON'T sound like big fretless electric basses? I have not seen the answer to this question anywhere, and don't go ape, b/c I did look at the Newbie section.
     
  7. Check out the Eminence Bass.

    A couple of guys here have them. I've played a couple, and to me, they sound as close to as amplified upright as you're going to get from a popsicle-shaped object.

  11. Hey, this is a reply to a really old thread, but I've been playing a Triumph for the past two years & I love it! And it does play like a double bass & through the right amplification, it sounds very double bass as well. The trick is to have the pan between the bridge pickups & the magnetic neck pickup centred evenly. Sounds great to me. I regularly play mine through an SWR Goliath at a jazz club. Creamy!
