I have an Ultra VI, silverburst, and a 2012 Hellcat VI (with Duncan SJAG1s), in 3ts. Pre-2012 I had one of the minihumbucker Hellcats (which I sold for the updated version) - this sounds closest to those.


Bit of an aficionado with that collection, are these your main instruments?

They are, yeah.
I occasionally pull out my Jazz Bass, or one of my guitars, but most stuff the past several years has been VI.


Cool, got any links to music you've made it like to hear what kinda noise you make. Was watching Aen's ultra cure vi demos on youtube earlier.


Our first album is on the various streaming services (Apple, Spotify, can’t be arsed to find links for Deezer, Tidal, etc), Bandcamp.

YouTube stuff

Cool sounds chap, the ultra looks saweeeeet. Defenetly prefer the bass vi sound to the B to B baritone tuning.

I’ve been back on the Ultra the past couple months, after about 6 years of barely playing it. Stringing it baritone gave it some reason to be picked up instead of the better sounding Hellcat. I prefer the look&feel of the Ultra, and no one really notices how a specific instrument sounds when you play a gig, so I strung it back as a bass and have been having fun.

One of these days I’ll find the cash to upgrade the cheap minihumbuckers to something brighter and more articulate, and better switches... but it’s not this day.
