Light yet punchy
ohall, 22.02.2019
I'm delighted with the LWA 500. I'm running it through a 2x10" 8ohm cab and the tone is superb. The four EQ bands are nicely spaced and give plenty of range so you can tailor your tone, though I have mine set fairly flat, and with a Warwick Thumb the tone is great as it is.
Being able to quickly mute the power amp makes using the tuning output a breeze .
The compressor is a simple combined threshold/gain knob and is extremely effective (though it can be bypassed if you have your own outboard processor) and the effects send return connector on the back makes this super simple too - you can dial in the dry/wet mix.
The unit also has a headphone mini jack for practice (which isolates the power amp at the same time) and a mini-jack aux input for injecting some audio to play along to.
For what I needed - a feature rich, super light but powerful amp with an incredibly clean/colour-free signal path - it ticks every box brilliantly.

Little big amp
marvinthemartian, 27.07.2020
I was looking for a lightweight amp for gigs and rehearsals. I decided to give Warwick a try because previously I have played through and older model that sounded very good.

This thing is amazing! It is very light and small, fits easy in my gigbag. And it sounds huge! I really dig the semiparametric EQ, since I like to dial in more high mids. The design of the amp looks pretty cool and modern.

I consider this a great workhorse amp for the gigging musician. The best purchase I've made in years. Highly recommended!

Great Clean Class A Fun
Graham3281, 15.09.2020
Great compact clean sounding amp.

I bought this after trying a friends and due to the low price. Neat compact, with great clean punchy tones. Great preamp, with wide range of tones and effective compressor. I love the clean tone of this amp. It is very clean even with high gain setting, so if you want some grit or dirt you will need external FX. Great all rounder, for gigs and practice with aux in and headphone out. Wonderful little amp would highly recommend, cant go wrong for €199, sadly these won't be around for much longer. Just wish I had bought the LWA1000. Thomann service excellent as usual.

Sound and Quality amazing
David Haskayne, 06.07.2020
i was really surprised by how small this unit is and was even more surprised by the sound. This little unit really packs a massive punch. The unit is completely silent running and the controls are really easy to use. i carved a really good tone out of this in a couple of minutes. I am really looking forward to taking this out on the road.
