Hello everybody. I just bought my first Alembic, a 1990 Elan 5-string, from Tim Sarter. A photo of it is posted in the Showcase:
It's the one on the right. I have dreamed of owning a 5-string Alembic ever since I saw someone play one at a jazz concert when I was a senior in high school. I remember being impressed by both the look and sound of the bass. It was the first time I'd ever heard a 5-string.
I vowed to own one someday. 20 years later the right opportunity came out of nowhere (the right bass, a good price, an understanding wife), and "someday" happened last week.
I currently work as a motion picture sound engineer at a Hollywood studio, where I do mostly Pro Tools service & support.
Gotta run, more later...

a beautiful instrument, one of the nicest Elans I've seen so far. Let us know how you like it, maybe take some more pictures of your own.
