That picture is angled very much like the custom of the month pictures...  
I wonder.....
 
That is such an impressive looking bass Pierre, the larger maple laminate really is a great effect.

maybe, maybe not ?
lamination maple makes the beauty of this bass more incisively. This affects the thickness of the body and gives more depth, more flavor (!)

Is it me, or is the tailpiece off-center?
Title: SC African Blackwood Bass serie II/I
Post by: rustyg61 on May 04, 2011, 04:24:42 PM
It looks centered to me, but that could be the camera angle.

I think the off-center tailpiece is a long running joke.  The bass is absolutely stunning!!!

Congratulations... I can just imagine how it sounds and plays... Wow!
Title: SC African Blackwood Bass serie II/I
Post by: pierreyves on May 05, 2011, 07:02:27 AM
the tailpiece could not have not to be centered of course  
thanks for your comments...  
I can imagine the sound, I hope it will not be too crystalline, otherwise I will compensate with my fingers and settings. The reseller is, with Mica, the only two people who have tried it and both agree that the sound is very (too?) pure.  
This is the first time Alembic uses the African Blackwood, which is a denser wood than coco bolo.  
Perhaps should I use this bass as a real bass or as tenor bass, it will depend on his sound.
It is now that I realize as she begins to take me the belly, it's great.
The thickness of the body give a relief that does not exist on other short scales.

Post by: eligilam on May 05, 2011, 11:09:22 AM
Nice bass...I've been watching your FTC thread since day 1.  When you get a chance, be sure and post a picture of its body from the side so we can appreciate the extra thickness you're referring to.

Post by: sd83 on May 05, 2011, 11:21:23 AM
I'm not really a fan of the body shape, but I still can't stop looking at the pictures as the blackwood just looks incredible.

That is the richest chocolate one can have.  An awesome specimen, it sits well against the best coco bolo, buckeye burl or superb walnut.  I am sure the sounds are as awesome as the look.  Please share some sound clips!!!!  Congrats and enjoy the physical and aural pleasure this beauty gives you.

I love how Mahogany draws that redish line around the clear Maple when we see that bass frontside. It almost pops out when we see the Bass in angle, what very beautifull color scheme it has.
Title: SC African Blackwood Bass serie II/I
Post by: bigredbass on May 20, 2011, 09:47:38 PM
I always say simplicity is elegant, and pieces like this are the perfect proof.  Well done.  This one just 'works' in so many ways.  The color scheme really sets off the chrome parts.
 
I know you shall enjoy this one a lot !

stunningly beautiful Pierre-Yves.  That picture from the side showing the core wood with the two extra thick maple laminates is my favorite.  
 
I know it's been a difficult process to sit through, but that bass is insanely beautiful- and from all accounts thus far, it sounds better than it looks.   I'm sure the joy it will bring over the coming months and years will far outweigh some of the hand-made quirks associated with the symmetry of the bass.  Enjoy

Hi, here are the asked ABW sound record I did some minutes ago. The bass is ADGC tuning, the sound is recorded with the direct output post eq. I use both pickups with some filters variations on the bridge pickup.
Enjoy!

There can never be too many photo's of this bass Pierre, I just love the look of this bass, it has to be one of the best looking examples of a SC Series Bass I have ever seen.  If I was having a bass custom made I would find it hard to choose between African Black wood and Coco Bola.

Thanks for posting it! Nice playing, I love the chordal stuff that goes beyond what Stanley did.  
 
It's pretty amazing how different the same model of Alembic can sound, although my theory is that it is mostly because of the player rather than differences in the instrument. However, this one was clearly worth the wait!

thanks Edwin, unfortunatly the keyboards was not here this day, but next time of course. We will record a demo CD in march.
Fingers, instrument and and tone controls that are done in millimeters...one milimeter of one tone pot and the sound change dramatically  ... It's Alembic !

Hey PierreYves,  I'm loving the tone i'm hearing from your Blackwood Bass. If that is typical of a series bass sound then I will be more than happy if my new bass has that type of tone and clarity.
 
Jazzyvee
Title: SC African Blackwood Bass serie II/I
Post by: pierreyves on January 29, 2012, 02:36:23 PM
what new bass Jazzy ? The Blackwood bass is UNIQUE  ... if you have same gear maybe not, same fingers too... lol, certainly best fingers as mines  before the blackwood I was playing tenor with the series II Koa, not the same sound...
Title: SC African Blackwood Bass serie II/I
Post by: edwin on January 29, 2012, 02:37:20 PM
That clarity is definitely typical of the Series tone. The biggest difference between his bass and yours will be scale length. There's something about the short scale basses that is different and really appealing to me. That isn't to say that your new bass won't sound wonderful, it will just be different. It, too, will also be very clear, present and punchy. And it will have a B string.  
 
So, this brings up the obvious, a European Alembic gathering!
Title: SC African Blackwood Bass serie II/I
Post by: jazzyvee on January 29, 2012, 03:43:17 PM
Yes Edwin, I love the short scale Series bass, it's my favourite shape in Alembic 4 string basses. I would love to get one some day hopefully in a couple of years time I will consider getting a used no greater than than 10 years old.
 
Pierreyves, I am the new owner of this bass Series II bass.
http://club.alembic.com/Images/395/69872.html?1261032490 (http://club.alembic.com/index.php?topic=14644)
It was custom of the month a few years back.  
I bought if from a forum member called Poor_nigel.  
My plan is to take a trip to Alembic and collect the bass from there and have a trip round the workshops whilst I'm there.

I use now the clean & boost pedal Rodenberg 707B
This little unit I use on solo add about 15 DB at outside and some little crunchy sound, it depend how you use it. This pedal is really fantastic for all bassist's solos.

Hi
after 20 hours of studio session, I'm able to present you the first audible track:
http://soundcloud.com/schooldays/topasio (http://soundcloud.com/schooldays/topasio)
In the first part I use chorus and during the fantastic guitar solo, I use Boss octaver.
Our band's name now is School Days (very original LOL)
We wait for 4 others because we must do the mix.
 
Here is the project for the CD's graphism:

The 4 others tracks will be available in one week I hope.

Bump, I had to check this bass out again.... :-)
Hey Pierre Yves, I need to get a copy of this CD. I will also play it for you on one of my weekly Jazz radio programmes.  
 
I use Stanley Clarkes  Blues for Mingus as my theme tune, Between Love and Magic for when I'm doing gig listings and Peace Paz & Poz for the closing theme.
