OVERVIEW

A top-tier entry-level 5-string bass.

The 5-string Warwick Streamer Rockbass Standard is a remarkable entry-level electric bass guitar with exceptional sound and playability usually found only in higher end basses. The solid carolena body, hardly ever found on basses in this price range, delivers a range of exceptional, pleasing tones and incredible sustain.

Hardware on Warwick's Streamer Rockbass is top notch, and its 1-piece bridge provides great action for beginners and experienced players alike. A classic bass shape, 2 MEC soapbar pickups, a maple neck, and a rosewood fingerboard combine to create an aesthetically pleasing bass guitar that is as enjoyable to play as it is to behold.

The construction quality of this Warwick bass is matched by the quality of the materials used. The maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, combined with the classic Streamer body shape, leave you with an aesthetically pleasing 5-string bass that sets a new standard for basses in this price range.

Best bass in its price range

By Nate Parker

from SF

Comments about Warwick Rockbass Streamer Standard 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

I've never played a Warwick or their RockBass company's basses before so I was a little nervous about ordering it online, but I'm glad I did. When the bass arrived in the mail all I had to do was tune the strings that were on it, it required NO setup at all whatsoever. I was blown away when I saw how good the stock strings on this thing are, because normally stock strings are very weak. I plugged this thing into my Fender amp and I was supprised that this thing has such amazing tone. This bass is in a very affordable price range, but it sounds like a bass that people would pay big money for. This thing is strong as nails, I have already dropped it twice (on the hard floor of garage) and it has only suffered a few minor scratches. This bass is also extremely comfortable to play on. On my 4 string Fender American Jazz Bass my fretting hand would become sore after about 45 minutes-1 hour, but on this bass I can for hours without any pain. This bass is pretty versatile, but works best with rock and funk in my opinion. If you're looking for an affordable bass I couldn't recommend anything more than this.

Warwick Streamer Rockbass Fretless 5

By Greg Martinez

from Albuquerque, New Mexico

Comments about Warwick Rockbass Streamer Standard 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

Very pleased with it, played live and sounds great. I do a lot of studio work but haven't used it in the studio yet, I sure there will be no problems with it.
Bolt-on neck5-stringCarolena bodyMaple neck with Tigerstripe EbonyScale length: 34" (long scale)24 frets (fretless)Fingerboard radius: 4-string = 400 mm (16"), 5-string = 500 mm (20")2 MEC Vintage humbuckerPassive electronicsNirvana BlackWarwick machine headsWarwick two-piece bridgeWarwick security locksChrome hardwareJust-A-Nut III
Looks and sounds great. I love the ebony fingerboard, gives it a different sound, brighter but well defined but still has plenty of bottom to it too. After I ordered it, I thought I should have ordered the natural color, but when I saw it I'm so glad I ordered Nirvana Black because the the color is flat black and the fingerboard is very dark ebony and it looks very sleek. I also have the German made Streamer 5 except fretted. Great bass too, it only has one MEC pickup (passive) and a wenge fingerboard. I didn't realise how much two pickups would add to the overall sound. When I want to get that mwah sound I turn up the bridge pickup and there it is. It has two volume and one tone controls and it's easy to dial in any sound you desire.
They had to special order it for me because there were no fretless models in stock. It took about 5 weeks, but whe I received it I was pleased. It needed a little adjustments, had it done professionally by a local luthier and now I can't stop playing it. I've taken it to my live gig's and get tons of compliments on the looks and sound.

Comments about Warwick Rockbass Streamer Standard 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

Can't go wrong with this one. Some folks complain that it doesn't compare to the German model, but it isn't supposed to. What it IS is a very solid sub-$500 5-stringer. It shares alot of design features with its "big brother" and has the exact same hardware and stock electronics, and non-exotic woods. Pickups are not really "loud" but are really grindy and fat sounding, kinda like a Fender Jazz on steroids. Construction was above average for the price point, and action was medium off the rack. A pro setup will take it down to crazy-low land if you like it that way. Definitley give this one a look if you're shopping in this price range.

    Comments about Warwick Rockbass Streamer Standard 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    I've been playing bass for 16 years and I've never come across a creature such as this, in my years I've played several vintage Fenders, some customer shop Ibanez bass guitar, and some more off the wall makes and models but nothing I've played quite compares to the feel of this beast, I play everything from Class Rock down to Nu Metal, if you want bright jazzy high's this guy has it, if you want some of the funky lows and mids this beast has it in spades, if you want that awesome grind that will pound your teeth out you're in the right place, it's nice and weighty but not too heavy, the construction is super solid and the hardware can't be beat, sure it's not "it's big brother" but for the price tag you definitely get what you pay for and then some, I pair mine with the Ampeg SVT 7 Pro jus sayin.

        Comments about Warwick Rockbass Streamer Standard 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

        i dont own this bass, but i was fortunate to try a bass that belonged to my friend. first off, the neck is WIDE, and that makes for lack of ease when trying to jump from one string another. i have a 5 string ibanez and i can navigate across the neck no prob. another thing that is a double edged sword is the pickups are dead quiet. while it does make for lack of hum it is frustrating having to turn the amp all the way up to hear them. The pickups themselves sound good and the neck is nice and slippery to travel up and down. These pickups sound good for almost any type of music, ive used it to play songs by a wide variety of genres such as funk, metal, jazz, and classic rock. despite the minor concerns i do hope to aquire this in my arsenal someday because of its wonderful sound
