    use furniture wax, make sure its clear wax and its jsut as good as the warwick wax and alot cheaper, you can get it from just about any furniture shop or harwear store like homebase.

    Have you tried getting in contact with the UK distributor for Warwick?

    Heres the email sales@madmusic.co.uk , they're based in London so I don't know whether this helps the situation.

    its not furniture polish, furniture wax, it is exactly the same as the warwick wax. the wax is ther to protect the wood and prevent it from drying out. any wax designed for this job is perfect.

    $11 is well worth the "rip off" my bass looks slammin! I use this wax once a mo. I have had the same can of wax for 2yrs!

    I waste more money in toilet paper!


    Dude don't put pledge on your bass!

    "dude", listen to what im saying. its no polish, it is the exact same wax which you will find in your can of warwick wax. except it doesn't have "warwick" on the front and for around £5 GBP, you get a tin of it which is at least 5 times bigger than warwick tin. hence the rip off. :)

    "bro" ok I got your point now as well as I did in your first post!

    BE ADVISED THE THREAD STARTER ASKED FOR THE WARWICK BEES WAX! You replied with "use this instead of that". If the thread was "what can I use instead of ******" well then your "wax" would be a good suggestion.

    I get your point! You use this stuff and it works great. Great good for you!

    I answered his/her question. That's all.

    I'm done with you......

    i was trying to offer an alternative as warwicks wax is hard to find in th uk. i found you to be condescending towards me as if my point was less valid. yes to be fair i did not directly answer the thread starters question but i was trying to point out an alternative which is also cheaper and far easier to get in the uk.

    Oh... that all.....? Never mind.


    As you know, these basses are quite expensive. As an owner of a Warwick, it's in my best intrest to find the BEST product, providing the best results. That's all. If the box said "wax from ears" well ok. It works for me. $11 for two years with at least another two years to go is a pretty good deal for me... I have to save 0.00753 of a cent per day to be able to splerge on more warwick wax in 4yrs.

    1. It works great

    2. It's cheap (subjective)

    3. Obtainable (if you know where to go, warwickbasses.com is a good start :smug: )


    I'm not trying to twist your BVDs man just sayin it like it is.

    right...
    to the thread starter i hope you find something which will suit your needs. but warwick wax has always been difficult to find over here even with out the distributor problems. i think the furniture bees wax is worth looking into. and i apologise for hi jacking the thread some what.

    You can get some from www.thomann.de. You need quite a big order to cover the shipping fee (about 20€ for any order) though.

    But you really can use any furniture wax with same results. I have two natural finished warwicks, and any beeswax works great.

    Thanks for the pointers guy's - appreciated.

    I can see where your all coming from and its always good to get a variety of opinions ;)

    I have been to the Warwick site and several links from it - but was still struggling to find this specific product online.

    About once / two months
     
  18. It depends on the weather mainly, If you live in a place with extreme weather conditions you should do it more often, or if the weather is quite unstable. I wax it once a month and it works great.
     
  19. lol... rocking horse poo... i like that
     
  20. This is the way to go.
    One phone call to these guys had me a tin of Warwick wax in the post the following day.

    FWIW I use it on my Warr and I like the smell :D
