Warwick’s second entry into the field of lightweight Bass Amps is the 500W LWA500. The configuring of the Amp to give 250W at 4 Ohms and 500W at 4 Ohms makes it possible to have the power you need for the gig regardless of the size of the venue.
The Pre amp is based on Warwick signature Class A/Low Z circuitry made famous with the WA and BC series of amps. This technology makes sure you have the warm huge distortion free sound you desire without disturbing noise.
The advancement in Power supply technology and error correction circuitry in the Class D power amp used in the LWA 500 allows for tighter and stronger bass response than previously possible in this type of amps. Making it comparable in sound to much heavier Class A/B amps.

New Flight cases
Beautiful, first-class instruments deserve first-class protection without compromises. As a result, we at Framus & Warwick have not only refined our flight cases for all “Made in Germany” instruments, but also redesigned them for an even more elegant look.
They are now even more durable and secure. Our new cases come with aluminum angles, chrome-plated ball corners, three rugged hinges and two powerful butterfly locks. Furthermore, an attractive red velvet cloth with an embroidered Warwick logo, a user kit, and a certificate of authenticity signed by company founder and owner Hans-Peter Wilfer are included with our German-made instruments.
The RockBass “W Bass”
Every instrument has its very own story to it, and the origins of our new RockBass “W Bass” lie in what is definitely not your everyday anecdote. The original idea to craft a bass with a body that is shaped like the famous Warwick “W” was conceived by a Warwick dealer. The instrument born from this inspiration was then given to us for our 30th company anniversary. We at Framus & Warwick were so thrilled by this idea that we made the decision to make the extraordinary instrument design a production model. And here it is – the “W Bass”, made by RockBass, and crafted in China.

The Warwick Difference
Neither Warwick´s policy of continuous product development, nor the investment in new machinery and technology which it entails, detracts from the spirit of hand craftsmanship. Correct selection and working of woods remain vital factors in determining the sound.
WARWICK differs from other bass manufactures in buying all its wood in complete rough logs or planks – none is obtained precut. This means more work, but ensures complete control over the wood used and the finished look of the instrument. The wood selected is stored for three to five years, and dried in Warwick´s own kilns to reduce moisture to the optimum level – a process which requires experience and patience. While WARWICK makes greater use of modern technology than any of its rivals, it does so only where the result will be a better instrument (and a more satisfied musician). The benefits are clear: It relieves humans of the mundane repetitive tasks, delegating them to machines. This reduces the risk of inaccuracy, at the same time increasing job satisfaction. The result is an increase in the quality and consistency of the instruments leaving the factory.
