zZounds Expert Review
When I started playing the Warwick RockBass Corvette Double Buck, I was really impressed with how it felt and sounded. Then I saw the price tag, and could not believe the quality of an instrument for that low of a price. This bass has a nice big low end, and that famous Warwick punch, and like all Warwicks I've picked up, it was a very comfortable bass to play. Swamp ash is one of my favorite woods for bass, and the Rockbass I played was carved from a really nice piece of swamp ash. If you're looking for quality, tone, and versatility in a bass under $1000, don't miss the Warwick RockBass Corvette Double Buck.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Warwick RockBass Corvette $$ 4-string red-oil"
Overall: I have owned a German-made Warwick Fortress One Masterman for nearly 20 years. I have always loved the tone and playability of this particular instrument. With this in mind, I was in the hunt for a back-up 4 string bass for a 3 piece acoustic gig. I knew that I did not want a used piece, but perhaps a new, entry level model Yamaha or Ibanez as a suitable back-up. I was close to getting the trbx505 Yamaha for about $500.00. So when I price comparison shopped online, I came across this beautiful Warwick RockBass Corvette $$. What?? 8 payments, No interest, No credit. I was tempted to give this a try and man am I ever glad that I did. 4 days after my order was completed, this brand new, factory sealed Warwick in my hands. The playability is much like the Fortress one German bass and the tone and sustain of this beauty is absolutely remarkable. Serial to parallel switching in both volume pots, and tone enhance on another pot. The high and low mids are exceptional. the dual humbuckers (passive) offer a very punchy low growl at higher volumes. Use a compressor/enhancer and you will be in hog heaven as I was. I you are loyal to the Warwick brand and have not tried a RockBass, you might be very suprised. The balance, weight, adjust-a-nut III, 3pc bridge bring a very familiar feel to the German counterparts. M.E.C. electronics are the same as well. Now, with the comparisons aside this Warwick Rockbass does just that, it Rocks the Bass.Best bang for the Double Buck out there.I am very satisfied with my purchase to this point and zZounds made it all possible.Thanks guys!!!!! Some advice, play as many basses at your local guitar vendor that you can, ask questions, settle on the sound and feel that you want, then go for it.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "This Warwick Rockbass really Rocks"
Sound: Lots of Low-End response from the dual humbucker pick-ups, and passive electronics with toneful midrange spectrum. Sustain is incredible. Feature: Serial to parallel switching via push-pull pots with all chrome hardware makes for a very appealing and useful set up. Hard to beet the adjustable nut feature. You can set the action on the fly. Ease of Use: For me, the playability aspect of this bass is it's greatest feature. Although the ease of rendering natural, inspiring "mids" is also a great a tribute from a beautifully crafted instrument. It is also, like most Warwick basses, very light and ergonomically engineered Quality: I have owned and played a Warwick Fortress Master Man 4 for about 20 years, so the reliability and longevity of this Corvette Rockbass has high expectations. The craftsmanship and components seem to be spot-on, by comparison with the biggest difference being the three piece Wenge neck of my German made Fortress bass and the two piece maple/rosewood neck of the Rockbass. Value: I played several bass guitars in the $400 to $1000 price range and I just kept coming back to this one. Dollar for dollar the Corvette $$ is a steal at zZounds.com. Manufacturer Support: N/A. The Wow Factor: The red oil finish on the swamp ash body is more beautiful in hand than a picture can convey. Overall: I have owned this bass for about a month and I just can't put it down. I Love the way it plays so responsively and accurately. The neck humbucker sits right in the harmonic "sweet spot" and the bridge humbucker pulls midrange from the blended crossover points of your settings in a favorable manner. This allows the user to create an accurate tone of choice. FYI, check the "height" setting of the humbuckers, you will probably need to lower them by one or two turns on the screws. Mine were set too close to the strings. Easy fix.
