The Rockbass Vampyre features a solid Alder body to deliver strong, full-bodied tones with beefy mids and excellent lows. A Maple neck coupled with a Rosewood fingerboard creates a sweet soft sound that brings a snappy attack with added punch.

It also features a Warwick 2-piece bridge, just-a-nut III nut, a patented easy access electronics compartment, Warwick machine heads and a style to reflect its powerful sound. The Warwick Vampyre bass is an exceptional instrument that would be an excellent addition to any bassist’s collection.
Alder Body & Maple Neck
The Vampyre’s body is constructed from Alder to deliver a strong and full bodied tone that features excellent lows, mids that are beefy and a high end that sizzles, whilst providing enough sustain for its tone to be carried with power. Its neck is built form Maple to bring a sweetly warm tone to the bass that provides some sparkle to its highs, thickens up the lows and opens up the midrange to give it a snappy attack that delivers a good amount of punch. With the Alder body and Maple neck working together, the basses tone is filled with rich and dynamic tones.
Active MEC J/TJ Pickups
The Vampyre features two active MEC pickups that capture the bass’s powerful tones. Featuring an active MEC jazz pickup situated at the neck to produce a light and crisp tone that offers plenty of definition, the bass also possesses an active MEC twin jazz pickup that can be found at the bridge to provide a loud, heavy tone that is much darker then the single jazz pickup. The twin jazz pickup also eliminates any hum which allows the volume and distortion to be cranked higher but for the tone to remain clear.
