The Streamer Stage II is an excellent bass. I picked it up 5 years ago and haven't regretted a minute of it! Very smooth tone without the muddy bottom end. It feels great while you're playing and will never let you down! Definitely recommended.
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.
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.
I have owned every bass there is. And I'm not kidding!!! I have traded, bought and retraded for 30 years now. I finally bought a Warwick Streamer Stage II and it has been by far the best sounding, versatile tone, powerful, clean, crisp, growling SOB I have ever owned. Ordered direct came right out of the box went on tour and all I had to do was change strings to my preference. If you want to save a lot of time looking for the best bass, JUST BUY a WARWICK STREAMER STAGE II. Get Black Hardware on it though not Gold.
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.
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.
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.
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 feel somewhat lame writing this review, because I don't actually own this bass. I played it at a local music shop earlier today, and I loved it! I knew that P-Nut played on it, and I really dig his tone, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Immediately picking it up, I noticed it was a teeny bit heavy. But as soon as I plugged it in (into a Hartke head through a Mesa/Boogie 1x15), it rocked. The tone needed a bit of tweaking, because the last person had no treble, but that was no trouble. The neck was smooth and fast and fit my hand perfectly. Playing down by the bridge where most strings get a bit too stiff to pluck well was no problem, and up by the neck pickup the strings were flexible enough to really dig in. The tone was out of this world too! The lows had alot of definition, and not muddy down on the B String. I don't really like the Warwick Strings (I'de throw on some GHS Bass Boomers, personally), but it still rocked. I also really liked the Yin-Yang inlay. Buy this bass! I'm going to!
I have owned every bass you could possibly own and finally found a bass that does it all. Warwick is top of the line basses. Not a beginner bass at all. The lows are tight strong and punchy. Cuts through the mix and is the most versatile bass anyone could own. You want Tone? Get a Warwick Streamer Stage II
