Looks cool! I like the way you can select low-, band-, and high-pass filters.

But doesn't the Stanley Clarke Signature count as a product with his name on it??? I guess he himself didn't "put his name on" the SC, but it still strikes me as a bit misleading...

Or on the original Spellbinder bass. Or on a lot of merchandise in the Stanley Clarke online store.

Knowing EBS it'll be pretty expensive. Their standard Wah should retail for 189 over here.

Whilst on the subject of Stanley (always a popular topic here at the club) It brought back to my mind the time I was watching the Carl Thompson "biography" style dvd "life beyond the third fret" (highly recomended!)

Carl talks about the time Stan popped into his workshop looking for carl to try and make his picollo bass concept come to life. Carl, virtually on the spot, converted a new build he had just completed (not for Stan) into the picollo bass. Stanley played it and fell in love straight away.

Subsequently Stan asked Carl if he could buy the bass - Carly replied "sure, give me $1200...no wait, make it $1000!" Stanley said sure thing and wrote Carl a cheque. "wait a minute" says Carl "you wrote me a cheque for $1800!" Stan replied "Carl, man, you dont charge enough!"

A true measure of the absolute gentleman Stanley Clarke is IMHO!!

John.

'Life beyond the third fret' I have been in so many bands that don't even know what a bass sounds like above that fret.
'Just play the root note and not too high up' are just some of the comments.Bore bore bore
