Low manufactures hand, by Patrice Vigier, in his studio.
Mine is one of the all Premire, before the sleeves in carbon.

The body is walnut Frans (sublime!) And the handle folds into three Maple / Walnut / Maple.

The neck is thin and trs trs fast.

The key is composite phenowood call, which is a timber and shuffled a kind of glue. It has the look and touch of bne in more ractif and much more stable. Vigier ProCD uses one of his favorites: He added an undercoat mtal between the key and the wood of the handle.
Ente phenowood and under the button, the stiffness of the neck is fabulous, incredible sustain.

22 frets with a cargo for the 0 and the precision of the strings sustain empty.

The pickups are Benedetti, made by hand by the late Michel Benedetti, itself. Two single coil pickups.

The electronic is Vigier, active with three strong features:
1. a push / pull the volume knob is a 10 db boost
2. gualisation a semi parametric (frquence is chosen by a knob and choose the gain of the same by another frquence knob)
3. mini micro swith putting out of phase (the trs diffrent)

The bridge is still the MODEL Vigier. Trs solid for a good conduction of vibration. The sustain is further increased by the system through-string.

UTILIZATION

The handle is probably the most enjoyable I have had in his hands. Trs end width and thickness, it is a pure joy.
We did not, against a large flat on the rear of the handle, as on the Noguera or JP (forcment is not bad, eh ...). The neck is fairly round, compared its low thickness.

The handle looks like a little thunder that is shorter than on other basses, but the pitch is a 34 ". Trs is enjoyable and comfortable for our poor arms and wrists left.

Access in acute is quite well thought out.

Despite the density of walnut, the bass is not heavy at all (unless a standard jazz bass, for example).

But his forte is definitely balance. It is the only low I know now that stings the nose NOT AT ALL, nor with a strap or sitting down.

As for the sound, it is passive trs balance. The EQ semi paramtrique can sculpt sounds indict.

SOUNDS

Prcises still sounds hot. The spectrum is equilibrated trs.

OVERALL OPINION

A beautiful low trs, hyper comfortable.
