Welcome!

 

Given your location, I'm not sure what choices are available to test.

 

There is a shop in New York that carries these, as well as lots of other high end heads. The shopkeeper's opinion was that the Warwick heads didn't sound better and weren't more reliable than other heads for the money. I tried it and thought it was OK, but nothing special. The pricing made it less attractive (this will probably be different for you). Having said that, one of the guys here has a combo and is well pleased.

 

Given the quality of their basses, I would expect it would be solid.

 

What else are you thinking about?

Dunno about that. The ability to excel in one area never guarantees ability to excel in other areas. Building an instrument of wood is quite different than building an amp of electronic components.

I used to think I was Libertarian. Until I saw their platform; now I know I'm no more Libertarian than I am RepubliCrat or neoCON or Liberal or Socialist.

That's true, and I can probably think of examples. Still, I was always under the impression that Warwick (the company) cared a bit. So if I liked the amp sound I'd take a shot.

 

Just like when you hear horror stories about customer support, you don't care if the products are usually made well or not.

Thanx for your advice!,

I was also looking at a Gallien-Krueger although it costs way more than a warwick. Have you got any suggestions that would be a good amp around the warwick price range?

dunno if this would fit yer bill, but...

the backline series is fun for me. i have the backline 110 (70 watt), and for a small amp, i love it. it growls when i want it, it's smooth when i want it, it's distortion channel is too high freq for my taste, but i can get some interesting sounds out of it...not usually for public consumption, but sometimes a basshole's gotta rock!

also, me, a keyboard...not quite good one...and a good drummer got offered a house band gig (jazz), and this amp was more than enough for it.

potrezebie!!!
