raph.bass's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Vigier Excess Original
Made in France, alder body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, bridge Vigier, mechanical schaller, Benedetti pickups, active electronics vigier (volume, balance, bass, treble), 24 frets + fret 0


The handle is very nice, thin, flat, a highway.
The balance is perfect and it's very light.
The sound is very good, perfect in all circumstances.


Very versatile bass. We obtain easily typed PB sounds, fat, but also sounds very "pinched" to pastoral. It is very versatile comfortable in all styles. I use it with an Aguilar amp.


This is an excellent bass. I rather regret that there was no passive mode. It is very expensive new but slightly down on good occases. I would do this choice without worry.

Vigier Excess Original
Made in France
24 frets, two single micro Benedetti, active electronics.
Vigier easel.
Adjusting bass and treble.
Maple Mache with carbon insert.
Mine is sunburst color (Idemn than Glovers Rogers).


The handle is a highway with access to acute very easy. This bass is very comfortable, light and balanced.
It sounds in all positions of settings and offers a range of sounds exeptionnelle.


It is perfect for rock, pop-rock, Funck, metal, blues, in short almost every style of music.
The notes are a formidable precision, although with severe acute Pleis and highly crystalline. The only thing that can be criticized, it is very slight hiss of its large output dynamic.


I use it for two years and I fell madly in love with this bass. It gives me a fun game intarrissable.J 've played on many models, Fender Jazzbass, Precision, JP90, Cort Artisan B5, and this MusicMan Stringray5 Excess happens to sound so unique, without wanting to imitate the Tenor of the category. In short, this bass is unique and the danger is to try it ....

The handle is it enjoyable?
Yes, trs right, with a low action without frisette trs. Rosewood is trs trs vein and "wood", organic

ond round of the Saddle is superb, and the rounded edges of the head are the most beautiful effect

the vein of carbon in the back of the neck is nice too

- Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?

until the 24 bp ss me. Unlike a vintage jazz bass, horn suprieure does not rise until 11 am the box (There's no there only 20 squares on a JB pr 80s, how true) but until the 13 me. But it is balance, and Access in Premire boxes is not as pnible Warwick with a horn that has sup. s'arrte me that the box 15

trs so good ergonomics, with a feeling handle 24 cases, not boxes Vintage 20

- Gets it easy to sound good?

yes, that adding subtracting plutt.

I think you have to remove the treble that can be aggressive fingerstyle - unless you play the metal - the choice of the set of strings (nickel or stainless steel) is important for the type of sound.

the electronic as powerful, it can also lower the volume up a little grave and acute, and then the sound was ultra funk active

so yes quite versatile, with a rosewood fingerboard. I do not know what gives a maple with a touch.

PRECISION sauce over a vigier in mind that JAZZ BASS.

this is reflected in the shape of the body also


Jou preamp in the studio with EBS

Markbass Little Mark II amp + EDEN 210 XLT (350 W)

well it sounds dj acoustic vibration is felt in the body, including the depth of the grave.

more precision than a jazz bass

lack button liability fawn Sadowsky "vintage tone"

the violin and me on top of Japan Sadowsky abroad.


All positive except the absence of "vintage tone" at the electronics, which are found in Bass F, Sadowsky, for example.

I do not meet the pb in the opinion of breath prcdant.

For the rest we are in the high-end Fender trs far ahead of current - at the custom shop pb ss under the price -

Circus158's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Here is one that stands out!"

Vigier Excess Original
Made in France, this 4-string bass has a carbon-reinforced neck, 24 frets + "fret 0" for strings.

The electronics are active and the 2 single-coil pickups are manufactured by Benedetti.

4 settings:
- Balance between the 2 microphones
- Serious
- Acute
- Volume

Point to note: pulling the strings of origin is light (40-95).
I have not tried to change this drawing, but to my knowledge, because of the carbon reinforcement, the stick has no truss rod.


ergonomics perfect for me: stick fairly flat and relatively thin, relatively lightweight, and very balanced.

The sound palette is very broad, the available settings are really effective. The reinforcing carbon


all over the neck gives unbelievable sustain. The resulting sound is unique, and gives a lot of harmonics, and infra-bass growl. Difficult to compare it to anything. Seems it has a real personality.

Great versatility, great for the big rock, blues, jazz, but also pure, for they may even find sounds very acoustic. Also very good slap, but also get a lens that's on a Jazz Bass for example.

The output level of the pickups (single coils Benedetti) is extremely high. This translates into a sound of tremendous energy, but also a slight hiss that is audible if in concert, may need to rework a bit the sound recording studio. It is possible to completely eliminate the problem by reducing the level of acute right on the bass (this can also be done on the amp, or on the mixer if omitted). However, I prefer to play with pots at 0, and subsequently corrected the record. This solution is very efficient and keeps the original grain.


After 4 years of use, it was time for me to give a full review on this superb instrument.

I'd say it's really a bass part, and I'm not ready to part with it!
