    Wow I must be really behind... I thought that he was an Alembic and GK cat. That 0 radius 8 stringer is pretty wild.

    He's dropped GK too. Now he's playing Glockenklang...

    Say there! Trip here. The reason for using Alembics and Vigier these days is that I found outstanding support there both personally and musically. Tonally, I've been way more pleased with them as well. When you hear the tones on the next release I'm doing, I think it'll be quite a leap from the last thingy. As for GK, well, that's a long story and to avoid silliness I really have to leave it at that.
    As for my being scarce these days, is because I'm busy being a dad and playing in bands, doing solo shows and traveling. Being dad is my favorite though! :) As for the other basses in my collection, they are all used. I do SO many different things that all my boys are divvied up into the road dogs (vigier, status) and the solo dogs (Alembic) and studio rats (Barker, and anything goes.) I hope this clears some things up. Love you guys and Adrian you DO owe me call! :) Also, Zons are still great basses in my book, I just started wanting a different sound.
     
  12. well, there you go! straight from the source!
