Warwick LWA1000 Bass Amplifier Head

The Warwick LWA1000 lightweight amp is a chameleon that can be used in pretty much any situation. Featuring 2 input channels with full EQ section and compressor on each channel, the LWA1000 combines a power amp stage that is designed using advances in Class D technology.

The configuring of the Amp to give 500W at 8 Ohms and 1000W at 4 Ohms makes it possible to have the power you need for the gig regardless of the size of the venue. The 2 inputs lets you have 2 Basses plugged in and ready to go with their own unique settings already dialed in.

The Pre amp is based on Warwick signature Class A/Low Z circuitry made famous with the WA and BC series of amps. This technology makes sure you have the warm huge distortion free sound you desire without disturbing noise.

The advancement in Power supply technology and error correction circuitry in the Class D power amp used in the LWA 1000 allows for tighter and stronger bass response than previously possible in this type of amps - Making it comparable in sound to much heavier Class A/B amps.

- 1000 Watt Bass Amplifier Head

zZounds Expert Review
As a very active gigging bass player, portability is a large concern. When I'm carting around my giant upright bass or multiple bass guitars, the last thing I want to do is haul a giant amp around. Of course, tone cannot be sacrificed, ever. I found this amp to fit the bill perfectly. The Warwick LWA1000 head has tons of flexibility, with two inputs and two separate channels that are footswitchable. This was crucial to me. I was able to plug my upright in one channel and electric in the other, and switch between two totally different sounds. Also I loved the compression on both the channels. This thing is packed with features, and pushes 1000 watts of power at a great price. The Warwick LWA1000 is now one of my go-to recommended amps for a variety of players -- especially the gigging bass player that needs power and flexibility in a portable package.

"Amazing amp "
Overall: Really love this amp. I have always been a solid state guy and the last few years a class d guy. Before this amp I was playing the little mark II bass head. Great head but it's got nothing on the lwa. The comp on the mark vs the lwa is way different. Found the comp on the mark colored my tone to much I never even used it. Also felt like the mark when you really pushed it did not have a ton of clarity. The lwa 1000 is by far the clearest sounding solid state amp I have played on really lets you dial in and bring the thunder like non other. Love the duel channels slows me to have a nice not overpowering tone on one, and a balls to the wall on the other. Love the fact it has aux and headphone jacks makes a it great for brushing up or warming up before gigs, or just great for practicing at home and playing with eq stuff

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Excellent modern sounding amp"
Sound: This amp has a very modern, clean sound. The compressor affects the gain stage, so if you wish to push this amp to it's limits, you must use the onboard compressor. However, you can leave it on and dialed to zero, (where it essentially functions as a very transparent peak limiter), and run your own compressor separately. Caveat Emptor, I use an excellent DI on the front end of this amp that has a different eq voicing, so the combination of that and the eq section of this amp give me what I want sound wise. Feature: I love the dual channels, the independent mutes, and the very useful eq section. My only gripe is that it uses a single speakon style output in the back (which can run regular 1/4 inch speaker cables too). This isn't truly crucial, as running two cabs off the one output is easily done with any modern cabs. I like the small size, light weight, and unique "old school stereo equipment" vibe this amp brings. Ease of Use: Very easy to use, simple eq section, no-nonsense inputs and outputs, tons of headroom. Quality: It feels solid, I've gigged it regularly for a year now with no failures of any kind. It has a fan that is quiet and functions appropriately. I can see this thing lasting at least 4 more years, and likely longer. Value: This amp is an excellent value in it's price range, especially when compared with some of the other large retailer solid state amps in it's class. Manufacturer Support: I've not yet had to use any customer service from Warwick. The manual is an easy read, though. The Wow Factor: It's a great looking, easy to use, excellent sounding piece of equipment. It's gotten some negative press on a certain popular bass forum, but I've found that most of those gripes just don't have much weight to them. Overall: Please see the detailed review information on this excellent amp.
