Alembic Series One

Recommended Posts

It has a 34" neck, just as I prefer. It was ordered by Edwin van Huik from Bass Connection in the Nederlands, and his initials are on the serial number: 98EVH11852USA. The bass has the regular SI electronics with an additional Master Volume.

The bass is very beatiful and the workmanship is flawless. You can get the Stanley Clarke- like sound as well as Jazz Bass, Precision and "really muddy". The key to the sounds are the filters that cut frequencies. You get the full sound with open filters. That´s perfect for Slap, Fingerstyle Soloing and stuff like that. If you use the filter, the sound looses high frequencies. You can add a decent boost with the Q- Switches for the frequency the Filters are set to. So you can imagine that almost any sound is possible with these electronics, without any EQ, you can use the EQ from you amp. I really enjoy this bass.

If you want to know anything, feel free to ask.
