TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the December issue of the magazine features a review of Warwick LWA 500 bass guitar amplifier head with WCA 112 LW cabinet. The equipment was delivered for review by the manufacturer, Warwick.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“The first stage of the amp (low-noise class A preamp) lets you boost the signal of your bass up to the point of distortion. You can obtain an overdriven sound by turning the gain knob all the way up, but my ears tells me that this amplifier was not meant for this type of playing.”

“Beautifully clear attack with slap bass suggests that the new Warwick heads veer toward modern funky sounds.”

“Warwick LWA 500 is characterized by perfect fitting of constructional parts and discrete components which minimizes the occurrence of thermal noise (a.k.a. Johnson-Nyquist noise).”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (http://topguitar.pl/sklep/), and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS (http://topguitar.pl/ios/) or Android (http://topguitar.pl/android/) operating systems.
