Up for sale is my stunning 1988* Warwick Streamer Stage 1. Hand made in Germany. Now includes a hard case for safer shipping and price dropped to £850.
shipping is £12.50 to mainland UK, £35 to most of EU, £55 to most of the rest of the world. Includes full insurance and tracking.
There is no serial number on this so it is impossible to age it precisely but talking to various people on here who are very knowledgeable on all things Warwick it could have been made as early as '86 and as as late as 88' so ive gone for the 88' to be safe - also, from what I saw of the bass when it was being stripped, the woods looked identical to those on this '88 Streamer Stage 1( making it maple body with a wenge/maple neck):
Professionally refinished in a stunning gloss white by local luthier who also repaired the minor neck crack(which is a typical bug bear of these older pre-volute Warwicks from what I know - see the reverb ad above - the crack is almost identical!).
This bass is all original except for the battery box which is a replacement from Warwick, the output jack, the pre-amp and pots (which are almost brand new MECs from a Warwick Fortress (the pre is a 2 band act/pass, bass, treb afair)). The frets were leveled and crowned by the same local luthier as well and it has received a full setup and new d'addario strings. The frets are down to about 50% from what I can see - see photos.
Truss rod and electronics work perfectly!
Neck profile and relief/action details (as best I can measure):
Width @ nut 40mm
Width @ 12th Fret 55mm
Width @ 24th Fret 62mm
Depth(front to back measured from fretboard) @ nut 23mm
Depth @ 12 fret 23mm
Depth @ 19th fret (before it joins the body) 27mm
Relief(meaured at 7th fret with string fretted @ 1st and @ 20th frets) : 0.15" / 0.381mm
Action @ 24th Fret 2.5mm - 1.75mm E - G
Specs to the best of my knowledge: Maple body, wenge/maple neck, 24 bell brass frets, Mother Of Pearl dots front and side, brass Just a Nut I, solid brass Warwick 3D bridge, Schaller machine heads, Schaller straplock buttons, Warwick/MEC 2 band(bass and treble) EQ with active/passive with push pull volume.
Weight is a very comfortable 4kg according to the kitchen scales though I swear it feels much lighter.
The brass hardware including the screws, knobs, bridge nut etc. were all a heavily tarnished gold finish when I first got the bass so I shot blasted to reveal what i think is a pretty cool nickel looking colour.
Paint finish is rather nice with only some minor blemishes on the front of the headstock that you can only see on very close inspection and the repaired neck crack is still visible under the paint as shown in the photos. The only other blemishes are the scratches on the cavity cover and the original varnish on the side of the fretboard is peeling away in some places but this cannot be felt underhand.

SIngle ESI Aktiv 08 studio monitor in excellent condition. This has been improved with sound deadening material added to the inside of the cabinet(so its significantly heavier than the weight listed below), there are also isolation pods attached to the underside. These are well specced and high quality monitors and sold for 145Euro new only a couple years ago. This one has had little use.

Intended as sucessor for the popular nEar08 eXperience, the aktiv 08 studio near field reference monitor has been developed to offer the best 8" monitoring solution for the entry level.
With an extended low frequency response and a top quality kevlar 8" driver, our aktiv 08 delivers unparalleled punch in the low-mid frequency - a major improvement over the paper and polypropylene drivers used in many comparable products.Compared to the previous generation, the aktiv 08 is build with a new tuning by our engineers in Germany, a higher quality silk dome tweeter and it also integrates a completely new design of the crossover circuitry. This gives aktiv 08 the pole position in the area of professional level studio monitoring if you are on a budget and won't accept a compromise on quality and sound.
All this makes aktiv 08 the perfect alternative to our top selling uniK 08 reference monitor if you are on a budget.
