Warwick Triumph EUB 41" 4 string in honey violin + bow

Recommended Posts

I've had this for a couple of years, and now feel I can move on to a full double bass, so this will have to help pay for one.

I'd like £1500 for it, these are well over £4k new now!


Warwick's info and specifications:

Triumph E-Upright
Get ready to be blown away! The new Warwick Triumph electric upright bass is here and it is a beauty. Available in 4 and 5-string versions, the Triumph is a modern take on the original Framus design, manufactured in the early 50´s. The body and the neck are made of handpicked Maple, with a Tigerstripe Ebony fingerboard.

Onboard you will find a custom MEC alnico magnetic pickup and a set of specially designed piezo bridge pickups, which can be blended and controlled with a unique passive mixing system. You can choose between a natural finish, or even opt for one of the classic Warwick coloured oil stains. Lastly, all Triumphs come with chrome hardware.

The tone range is wide and comprehensive, covering everything from the most woody of tones to the nearly synthetic tone that New Age bassists seem to love. Best of all, the Triumph is easy to dial in.E-Upright[list]

I would prefer an exchange in person as it would be a pain to post.

A couple of demo videos from Andy Irvine. There is another from Antonella Mazza doing a jazz gig, but i can't find it.

It comes with a french bow and some rosin, the stand and its gigbag.



Some tiny dents in the finish where the 'arm' has made contact, otherwise perfect:


I may also sell a yita german snakewood bow + Protec case for £130 + P&P as this can be posted.

Hi all, Note; I may consider part-exchange on lightweight amps & speakers suitable for amplifying electric piano.

Thanks guys, I was first inspired to get the triumph from a clip on Youtube of Antonella Mazza playing jazz, but that has long since been pulled.

That's much better.

Bailey's intonation on an upright is much better than on a bass too!
