Stanley Clarke's vibrato
I am new here. I don't know if this is the place to ask
But has anybody checked out Stanley Clarke's ferocious vibrato on his old alembic bass? Even while doing harmonics his vibrato could be so wide. Was it sheer strength? For me attempting to appropriate it is moot. I'm buying a Kahler tremolo bridge, but Clarke's vibrato technique seemed to defy reality.

Alembic basses have an internal filter that creates a certain "tremolo" effect. Also realize that Stanley is a monster on upright and has gigantic hands and plays a short scale bass. There is a unique combination of physical, electronic, and skill factors at play in his sound.

He also splits his signal chain into a fender tube amp. Having said all that- Stanley could probably walk into guitar center and work magic on a poorly setup ibanez. Emulating his playing got me fired from many bands!
