Warwick RockBass Vampyre Lord reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the January issue of the magazine features a review of the RockBass Vampyre Lord electric bass guitar from Warwick. Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“All by itself, this bass is very predatory and sharp. The instrument sounds quite bright but it doesn’t lack in hardness, especially if you play it with a pick. Even then the tone is rich and full of essential harmonics.”

“It is a guitar for bass growl, metal backgrounds and stoner riffs, but if you wish, you can also try and play the “Anesthesia” solo with it.”

“Sounds that emerge from Vampyre Dark Lord can be a challenge for small amplifiers manufacturers as well as studio producers mixing band recordings. On the other hand, the overall quality and pricing of the Dark Lord are of a nice surprise not only for beginner musicians.”
