I just bookmarked the VUE Audiotechnik website to peruse this weekend. Very nice stuff, for sure.
When did you work at Alembic and what did you do there?
I left there in 1989, yet continued doing Artist Relations for a few years after.While I worked there, my main jobs were Artist Relations and working in the set-up department. I also worked NAMM shows and the Music Meese in Germany.I worked in several other departments as well at one time or another like rub out and finish department, and even carved a little bit.I still speak with them several times a week, I concider them my family!
I had owned a '84 Exploiter and a '87 Persuader back in the '90s that i eventually traded both in for my first ZON Sonus Special 5 fretless bass; I did some mods to the electronics on both while I had them and had the Exploiter made fretless. I keep hankering for another Alembic one if these days. My wife and I met Mica and Susan when we went there in 'May 07 and got a nice tour around the place. We went to see a friend's Dragon Wing that was being built at the time we were there. I also used to own a pair of F-1X preamps.
Had a few Exploiters that I sold that I wish I still had.One was the black short scale on Stanley Clarke's Find Out album cover and the other was a really sweet Koa front and back Series I!
I have Find Out; I bought it because of the Exploiter. Too bad (IMHO) that was not one of Stanley's finer moments, musically.
I miss that bass! I tried to buy it back a while back,but the guy wouldn't sell it to me.I actually hung out with Stanley last night at Yoshi's in Oakland.His band was AMAZING!!! 18 year old Pianist and a 19 year old drummer!!!
Interested in seeing pics of your setup. Considering a 12w to be used with a Basswitch or TD-1
Pm me your email address and I'll send you some pics.I wasn't able to download them here for some reason.
Just yesterday decided to get my Alembic back out and give it some love (I've been on a Stingray kick for a good while) Epic 4 w/Wenge top and Epic 6 w/Flame maple. I probably should sell the six...my hands are just too freaking small to play a six comfortably.
I've had my eye on VUE for a while...mostly for PA use rather than bass - I'm happy with my Aggie/Bag End combination right now. Kinda the antithesis of the VUE boxen.
These look great. True specs and EASE data. They do it right!
For the cost - IMHO - VUEs are not the same league as dedicated bass cabinet, they can do so much more.
I give lots of respect to them for that very reason (and I've told Ken and Jim that, too).
