  1. :bassist: Here is the question. Which warwick? All responces will be greatly appreaciated.
  2. Looks? Or sound.

    Never played any of them, but the plain old Thumb Bolt-on is quite fetching IMO.
  3. If I had a Warwick it would be a Streamer or Fortress, so i voted for the last option.
  4. If I could get another Warwick, I'd get a Dolphin.

    I like the looks of the Corvette, but I never played any of em. I also like the Streamer Stage 2.

    Why aren't any streamers on the poll?? :confused:
    The corvette sounds/ plays nice, but it way too heavy for my comfort, and the body is a bit smaller than I'd like. I've never been a fan of most warwick's tone, but nice instruments.

    How is this a mega thread?:rolleyes:

    Check out a Dolphin or a Streamer Stage II.

    Assuming you are looking to purchase one, what is your budget? The SS2 is, IMO, the best of the product line. There is a big price difference between the SS2 and a Corvette Standard, though.

    I own a Corvette Standard and I love it. Great sound and playablity. As for the weight of the 'Vette, I can't say it has ever bothered me.
  9. Steamer Stage II. I've found it has the most tone flexibility of any bass I've tried. I thought nothing could replace my Corvette Pro Line but the Streamer has become my primary axe.

  10. I agree with Embellisher. I can see 5 Warwicks from where I am sitting, and there is no question (IMHO) that the Streamer Stage II and the Dolphin Pro 1 are the best of the Warwicks.

    I prefer the Streamer for it's shape and versatility. The Dolphin is also very versatile and much lighter than the Streamer. Thumb basses sound good too but the balance doesn't suit me personally.

    I've only played the corvette, but it was definitely the better of the basses I've played. It's really heavy, but I like the density, and the small body. The natural wood looks really nice, too.

    I think it was named a megathread in hopes of it becoming one. ;)

    Yet another flawed poll with limited options that doesn't give us useable numbers. :rolleyes:

    I voted other, I'd get a streamer (prob an LX, or if funds allowed a Stage II), because I've got a Thumb BO and a corvette already.

    See - it's not just me - the longer you stay around here the more you will see fatally-flawed polls and the likelier you are to get annoyed by them - I've just seen more than most!! ;)

    The point here of course is typical - so if he had just asked the question - which Warwick should I buy? - and left it open; then he could have got some sensible replies - whereas most of the replies have been about the poll not having any Streamer options. So the poll has actually hindered the poster getting what was wanted and has acted as an "irritant factor" for any readers, who were going to suggest something other than what is there.

    The whole thread would have been much better off, if the poll had just been left out - which is fairly typical

    Oh and I would have said some kind of Streamer as well!! :D

    Personally, the only Warwick bass that I like is the Corvette Proline. Most look really nice though.

    this is a 1996 corvette fretless with bassline pickups and I use it alot, the stingray is a great bass for sound change but the warwick has alot of meat !

    the only warwick I've played that I've liked very much was a Streamer Stage II and I liked it VERY much.
