I thought the day would never come. I had only been dreaming about buying an Alembic for the past 2 years of my life. Through all the financial trouble and times of strife, this day finally came last week. I would like to thank Susan for putting up with my BS over the past few months and I would also like to thank my wife who has pushed me to become a better musician. Finally, I would like to say hello to the club and I am darn glad to be here. Only 3 more months till D Day and I cant wait...

Welcome to the club! I am relatively new here as well but have learned and seen so much information and goodness amongst members that it's overwhelming!
Do you have a thread showing your Delivery Day instrument?

I had actually owned an Epic for a while but due to financial problems I had to sell it. I am getting an Orion 4 string, Zebrawood top, side red LEDs, and essence electronics.

Congrats, Danny, I'm sorry you had to sell your Epic; personally, I think the Orion's a nicer shape... it's the set-neck version of the Europa -which I have.
It sounds like a nice formula. Zebrawood's really pretty, and LEDs are nice, really handy. And you'll enjoy the low-pass filter... tremendous versatility.

Hi Danny, welcome to the club!
Your choice of the 4x8 cabinet in the blues band with drums is very interesting.

At 600 watts it does a pretty good job for all types of music we play but that cabinet is always subject to change..

I had to get rid of a 4x10 because it was too heavy. I've never heard of a 4x8, but I bet it's punchy and light weight.

Hello Danny, nice to meet you. Nice website. Listing gear used is always a welcome addition to a musician's website IMHO.

Ashdown makes a 4x8 cab rated at 8ohms and a nasty 600 watts. You can pick one up for about 400 bucks at any Ashdown dealer.
