4 January 2010 — Some artists such as Roger Glover of Deep Purple have made the Excess 4 string popular but the Vigier bass community has asked for more since the launch of the Excess series in 1996. This is why Vigier, the pioneers of carbon fiber technology, launch the first Excess 5 string Bass.
Like all Vigier 5 string basses, this instrument glows by the quality of the low B string response in both frequency and dynamics. This is achieved by the use of the 10/90 system, a system that reinforces the neck with a carbon fiber strip. A set of Delano pickups and a 3 band EQ by Vigier relay the quality tone of the instrument.
This 5 string completes the series and allows the Excess to rock the foundations.

With WeImprovise! I set out to build a different kind of promotion & discovery platform — supportive, expansive, & inclusive, for music, musicians (students, performers, educators, & researchers), and the wide-ranging industry that supports music worldwide.
The focus is jazz, blues, & roots-folk-world music — incidentally the music that feeds pop & rock creativity — along with the inclusion of cultural & sociological aspects without which the music cannot truly be engaged with.
What you see is the beginning, a proof of concept to demonstrate possibilities and inspire ideas.
