The relationship between U2 bassist Adam Clayton and Warwick founder Hans-Peter Wilfer dates back to 2008, when Clayton approached Wilfer about building a bass to suit his likes and needs. The result was Warwick’s Adam Clayton “Reverso” model signature bass, released in 2010.
Now Warwick has announced a follow-up Adam Clayton signature model bass, this time a “Streamer CV.” The inspiration for the follow-up bass came after Clayton acquired one of Warwick’s Streamer basses with a P-pickup and asked to have this one hot-rodded for him, as well.
Clayton has been putting his new bass to good use of late, having played it at the record release event for U2’s latest album, Songs of Innocence, and using it for recordings and live performances throughout the world, including the band’s 2015 “Innocence + Experience” tour.
