    Warwick Katana NT 5 (2009 made in Germany)

    Warwick Katana NT 5. 2009 made in Germany. It's one of the best-sounding 5-strings I have ever heard and one of the most comfortable ones :) Really don't want to let it go, but I'm selling most of my bass-guitar collection due to family needs and play mostly 4-strings. The cosmetics is great...

    Katana t/n 4 string

    I am very happy with the sounds of the bass tonal variations are great, unfortunately I have had to replace the jack input 3 times now as it keeps breaking down causing a spitting crackling sound when plugged in. Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks Graham

    Katana sounds?

    Hi guys, I daresay there's been a post about this in years past, but I know you never like to miss the opportunity to impart knowledge :wink: So... What's the sound of a Katana like? They never seem to be terribly popular, and I've only ever seen one used live, in a situation where the tone...

    Hello from UK (Surrey Katana owner)

    Hi folks Just thought I'd say 'hi' and introduce myself. I'm Stu (onehappybunny), and I play in a covers band and an original indie/rock/folk band in the UK, for fun rather than cash or glory! I bought a Katana 5 a few months ago. Great looking bass (at risk of starting a huge debate, the...

    Katana BO?

    I've found a lightweight one of these for sale at a reasonable price. However, it's not in a location where I could play it before I buy it, so I have some questions: Do you think this would sound pretty much like my Corvette Proline? Would the B string be clear and growly? What do you think...

    Help on buying decision: Katana NT or Proline Corvette

    First post here and first Warwick purchase. I bought a 4 string Katana NT through GC for a good closeout price ($1245) but was impressed with the sound and feel of two Corvettes: the passive ash and active Proline. I love the feel of all three basses and the sound of the Proline. The Katana...

    I have recently been pining for an ovangkol bodied corvette $$, but I have come to realise that it's never gonna happen because I can't find somewhere to custom order from in the uk But I have found a Katana NT at the uk Bass Centre for significantly LESS than the bolt on version in a sale...

    Corvette vs. Katana

    There's been a lot of discussions about different woods like swamp ash or bubinga, but this time there's no need to debate on this issue :=) I would like to hear, if anyone is having personal experience on both Corvette and Katana. What's the difference between those two? I have two working...

    Katana NT5

    Hey, My heart was set on a Vampyre LTD until Seth had me try a Katana which was equally as awesome in it's own way for a smaller price tag... I've been thinking about it ever since, and I'd be happy with the Katana except the harmonics didn't ring as loud as they did on the Vampyre. Would...

    The Katana in the CS gallery

    It changed from a 5 string to a 4 string. I'm confused.

    Hi all, I'm interested in picking up a Katana, but I've had a very hard time tracking down anyone who has one, and I'd like to hear what people think of them based on personal experience. I'm looking at the 4 string set neck, which I believe runs for around $2400 (correct me if I'm wrong)...
