Cheers everyone.
I am new here. Just bought my first Alembic. Can you believe it? Been playing bass for 50 years and finally figured it out.
I guess I have been kind of stuck on Aria/Matsumoku instruments for a while. (also Modulus and Lakland).
Anyway, I am absolutely thrilled with my new bass (1998 Epic Wenge top). It is my new everyday/every gig player.
I play it through Mesa D-800 and 1x12 cabs (three).
Down here on the Central California Coast in Santa Cruz.
Best regards to all,
Liam.

Hi Liam from up the coast a litttle (East Bay).  Welcome to the club and congrats on your new Epic!  I think you'll find this to be a delightful, unique, and extremely informative corner of the cyber world.  One warning though - all it takes is one Alembic for most people to get hooked!  Have a great Turkey Day.

Bill, the guitar one

Hey Bill,
Thanks. And yes, I have already learned quite a lot perusing the Alembic Club site.
And yes yes yes... I am already thinking that my life might even be better with an additional Alembic, or two!
Cheers.

Welcome to the wonderful world that is Alembic basses. Bill, the guitar one, is right. It's easy to get hooked on the sound and the whole quality of these basses.
I started with one in 2002 and now I have..... well let's not go there. haha
The sound of Alembic is medicine for the soul!

Iā€™m from a little further South-West and welcome from Oz.

There are so many knowledgeable folks here that you will never
be short of highly valuable information. All you need do is ask.

Enjoy your first Alembic. Play it healthy.
