In today’s video, Warwick artist Leonid Maksimov (Bassists Alliance) talks with our Head of Research & Development Marcus Spangler on the question of the value and quality of RockBass instruments.
In this video Marcus Spangler clears up in detail the prejudice that “Made in China” is often associated with lower quality. The Warwick RockBass series is manufactured in China, but with high quality requirements, made of high-quality tonewoods and with the best hardware. Warwick/Germany has also carefully selected the Chinese manufacturer. Before this manufacturer sends RockBasses to the various wholesalers worldwide, Warwick sends specialists to China each time to carry out strict quality controls on each instrument. When the RockBasses arrive at the respective distributor, all instruments are carefully checked and adjusted again.
The RockBass series ranges from the basic model Corvette to the Streamer basses, the Artist Line, the Fortress models and the new Infinity with B/E/A/D tuning. Thanks to “Made in China”, all instruments of this standard series are affordable even for demanding and equally economical bassists. The know-how of the “Made in Germany” Warwick Masterbuilt and Teambuilt series are constantly incorporated into the RockBass instruments. The same hardware is also often used. Thus, all RockBasses convey the typical Warwick feeling, outfit and look as well as the unmistakable Warwick sound.
