The Framus Jazz Bass that Jaco played is in the Framus Museum in Markneukirchen. Amazing to see in person!

Hi Deliriumbassist, The Stone Bleached finish is a new and unique process that we've developed. At this point I'm not at liberty to share the details of how its done - but you can now begin to find them available in stores. Thanks!

Hello,
I've been looking around like crazy through the internet (and either something is wrong with your website or my browser because it isn't working), but I cannot find any information on if there is a 6 string version of the $$. If there is, is it something that can be easily purchased, or is this a custom shop type of thing? Thanks in advance.

could one get the colored stone bleach done on just the swamp ash wood? I love how that looks more than i do the front, especially the blue jean look of the light blue bass.

LTDman90,

The Corvette $$ is available in 6 string, and can be found on our website here: http://warwick.de/modules/produkte/...16&linkID=47811



I've checked with our US Distributor, US Music, and the 6'er would have to be ordered, though not necessarily a Custom Shop piece - unless you chose options. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can be of assistance in any way. Thanks!

You're not alone in that respect though. EBMM were kind enough to slog me $80 for a replacement battery box for my old Bongo.
Is MEC owned by Warwick or it's own company? I don't think I've ever seen MEC electronics in any other instruments.
Also, My Streamer LX5 is a 98' model and has a 7 piece maple neck with what I assume are Ekanga veneers. I haven't seen a LX older than mine and all the '99s I've seen have had Wenge necks. Does this sounds about right for the year of my Streamer or do I have some kind of oddball?

consecutive e, the MEC brand is a part of Warwick Music Equipment, and have been the standard Warwick pickup since 1988, preamps since 1984. If you'd like to try and get more information on your particular instrument, please send pictures and serial number to serialnumber@warwick.de Please let me know if you have any questions, or if I can assist you in any way. Thanks!

Hallo.

I'm planning to buy a 5-string Rockbass Streamer in the next couple of weeks, and I was just wondering what kind of a tonal difference I can expect between the model with the active pickups and the model with the passive pickups.

I'm leaning more towards the passive model, since the active is a bit too expensive for me, but I'd like to know about how the pickups change the sounds of the respective basses. If I were to play both of them completely dry through my interface and into my computer, what would you say would be the standout differences between the two?

Also, what kind of strings [brand/gauge] are installed at the factory?

Thank you.

Glad to hear you're thinking about a RockBass Streamer 5, Hriday -- they are really fantastic quality instrument at an affordable price.

The difference between active and passive electronics has to do with whether or not there is a battery powered pre-amp circuit in your bass, which serves to boost the instrument's output even before the signal goes through your bass amp. Sonically, active basses usually sport a louder, beefier tone. Since you are running your instrument straight into an interface, I can see why this might be a beneficial option since you would get a hotter output for recording.

However, there are many people who swear by passive electronics. They sound great, more truthful dynamics-wise, do not require a battery of any sort, and have sound more akin to basses before 1980. For that reason many people associate passive basses with an old school bass tone. Check on Youtube for some comparison videos between active and passive basses, you should get a sense of what each configuration offers tonally.

Oh, also you can actually 'bypass' the active circuitry in the Streamer by pulling out one of the control knobs. So really you should have no regrets going for the active bass, since you will also get the passive tone too.

Hope this helps a bit. Good luck!
