I have one of these directly ordered from Warwick, with a hardshell case, custom black hardware instead of gold, and custom warwick pickups. This bass is amazing it has every sound imaginable... this bass puts my American Jazz Bass to shame.
Ive owned this bass for going on 4 years, and it has never not impressed me. ive even had compliments on my tone with my strings being dead as could be. the powerful grindy mid range of a warwick cant even be atempted by other companies. i have a schecter studio 4(i needed some thing to beat up on stage)with a 18 volt emg systm in it, and it doesnt come close to the power of my streamer. the only compliant i have is this bass makes all other brand seem less then par. Quite under mining your tonal efforts, save your money and buy a warwick.
I went to a gc today and played this and the thumb neck through...I had always thought the thumb would be my dream Bass, but after sitting w/ this for an hour I changed my mind..The thumb just lacked the low end punch I want, but the stage II had it and then some!! The brights were clear as day, but not brittle, and the mids sound like a rabid dog! the guy at the store told me I had to turn the amp down b/c I was rattling the whole store w/ the low b on this baby! If you're serious about your playing, this puppy is for you.
I've played many different great sounding basses, but I could not believe the responsiveness of this one. I like to play slap, and you barely have to touch this beauty to get it to snap, growl and pop. Effortless; this bass plays YOU! Don't be bound by genre either, this can do it all!!! I've played anything from blues and jazz to heavy metal with it and it performs no matter what.
i've owned a few warwicks and this has been the best so far. for sound and quality. i previously played a thumb and the streamer 2 blows it away. i do a lot of tapping and struming and all the notes cut through like no other bass.
Well, just to give you some extra info, Breaking Benjamin's Mark Klepaski plays a Streamer, and the tones from his are some of the most pronounced, full bass tones I've ever heard.
To me this is the perfect bass. I noticed that alot of the bands I listened to that had great bass sound, were using a warwick. I also noticed since i bought this bass it seems like you cant play a wrong note. It sounds good NO MATTER WHAT YOU PLAY.LOL I play alot of Primus, Tool, Rage, RHCP, etc..(cant seem to compose my own music) and it sounded great for all of them. I play through an ampeg svt4-pro head, a madison 8x10 cab and an old ampeg 2x15 cab and i can almost knock down the house with it. But at the same time i can play on my little practice amp and it still sounds great. Great tone, deep growl, many great features. Definately buy if you can.
It has the best tone I have heard!! even though it is heavy it is well worth every cent and then some!!!
I've played bass guitar for over 22 years, and I've owned or played dozens of different basses. No other bass can touch the Streamer Stage II. It is built solid, and the sound is amazing. You can adjust the height of the strings by the bridge and nut for perfect adjustment. I have my action set incredibly low with NO fret buzz! Every note is tight and crisp with lots of solid low end. It sounds great with finger-style or pick playing, but the slap sound on the Streamer Stage II is what really sets this bass apart. And, the look with the exotic woods, ying-yang inlays, and gold hardware is absolutely beautiful. Worth every single penny and then some. I love this bass, and I highly recommend picking one up if you have the means.
I must say I lucked out when I bought this. I paid less than half of the retail. (The just-a-nut II was broken so that dropped the price. Very easy fix.) I could never personally justify paying full price.The quality of this instrument is wonderful. I actually just stare at it sometimes. It is a work of art in my opinion.I also own a Tobias Classic 4 and a Schecter Stiletto Studio-5 Bass. I went from quite a different tone and feel when I played the Stiletto vs the Streamer. The Stiletto sounded slightly flat compared to the crispness the notes on the Streamer had. (Not the fairest comparison I know.)My pre-Gibson Tobias Classic sits proudly next to my Streamer. Looks, playability, craftsmanship, and sound are equal between the two.Something that also made me giggle was that certain notes on the Streamer will actually resonate into your gut when playing. I loved that!Overall, great looks, and has wonderful crisp tones. (No muddy B string and clear notes) I wanted a bass I could be happy with owning for years to come. I also didn't want a bass that I could "grow out" of. This one fits the bill. If I had to do all over again....I wouldn't hesitate buying it again. No regrets at all.Now it?s time to start saving up for a Thumb 5 and Stu Hamm 4.
