Markneukirchen, Germany (August 19, 2020) -- The Warwick Gnome bass amplifier head offers bassists a clear, defined bass sound and impressive power - all packed in a super compact, lightweight design that will easily fit in your pocket!

The Gnome amp heads were developed to offer transparent, crisp and noise-free performance combined with an ultra-portable, lightweight design in an affordable and reliable amp for discerning musicians and for the seasoned professionals. The 3-band EQ with +/- 15 dB cut/boost per band offers a lot of op-Ions to shape the sound according to your own ideas and the balanced post-EQ XLR DI output with switchable ground liO offers an easy way to use the Warwick Gnome for live gigs or studio recordings. Silent practicing is also possible if you disconnect the speaker output and use only your headphones.

Additonally, the Warwick Gnome i offers an easy-to-use audio interface without any special driver or software requirements.
