That's a nice pedal (I bought one last month!) - why are you selling it?

I need the space on my pedalboard - of course you've put a seed of doubt in my mind as to whether I want to sell it or not now! It is a great sounding pedal...

Aw man, now I don't know if I want to sell it! Ha ha - i'll remove it so I don't waste anyone's time, have a play with it and then re-decide.
I did purchase the Ampeg Bass Scrambler Overdrive pedal last week, which booted the Soul Food off. They're very similar, the scrambler has slightly more grit and to me, the key thing is that it has slightly more bass tone to it, when I use the soul food I roll a smidge of low end in from my bass in,

...well if you fancy selling me your Warwick I'll buy the EHX Soul Food off you at the same time :)

Ha Ha! Nice try.
I bought the Warwick about 5 years ago, it was always my second bass to my Stingray, for which the sound I fell in love with when I started listening to the Chilis and Reef about 25 years ago.
The stingray had a couple of issues which were repaired, but the luthier (very good) said that he wasn't 100% sure he'd solved the electrical issue with the stringray so he suggested using it as a backup for the time being.
When I listened back to the video / audio recording of the Warwick, which was DI'd straight into the desk my jaw hit the floor as it sounded lush!
So sorry! not until the wife orders me to sell it!
However, I did purchase a Dean Acoustic bass a couple of weeks ago, which my wife assumed was operating on the one-in-one-out basis (it's not).

Did you buy the Warwick new?

When can I have a word with your missus? I'm sure there is an extra holiday or something for the home that she would be really quite partial to? And I really don't see why the Dean Acoustic is exempt from the one-in-one-out rule? Seems very unfair.

I bought it second hand from Planet Music in Ipswich (I know the chap in there, Matt, lovely chap, damn good salesman, I only went in for some strings!).

The story is that a mother bought the bass for her son who wanted to learn, her, living in a part of Suffolk where everything has to be the best etc bought it as a beginner bass (!) for him, he promptly got bored after only a couple of months and then it was sold back to the shop as an unwanted present.

I saw it a couple of weeks later and picked up a pretty much new bass for a lot less than retail value.

You're more than welcome to talk to the wife - she also saw the Ampeg pedal turn up and assumed that a bass would be walking out of the door too but then I managed to salvage that buy pointing out I'd just sold my TC foot remote.. Phew!!

(Mods, apologies for going off-topic on this thread, I am enjoying the conversation though!).

Glad to be of assistance! :-)

(Funnily enough, I have a Warwick which I'm debating whether to sell...)

That's a great story!

Who is the mum and how did she know to get a Warwick Streamer II 5 String German made?!! Did she go on a Basschat sponsored course on "how to spot the best bass ever?" It's obviously a great starter bass for her little boy wonder; I presume she bought him an Aston Martin to learn to drive in? Is she now single and looking for a toy boy? Too many questions, so little time...

Happy to speak to Mrs Sparky and also to grease her palm with a new coffee machine or Dyson hair dryer if either of those things take her fancy? PM me her contact details.

Bandwagons are meant to be jumped on. But best ask bluesparky to change the thread title to "Warwicks - Soul Food for Bassplayers".

I know, silly story isn't it! Whenever I go back into the shop Matt always asks how the bass is and gently shakes his head saying "you got a great bargain there mate!".
I'm not sure of the manufacturing details, but as far as I'm aware / assume she looked on line / in a catalogue and said "that one, in red".

I'm still in hospital at the moment (hopefully home tomorrow) but I'm going to try out the Ampeg & EHX pedals side by side and see if I can do without the Soul Food, they certainly don't fit on my board.
