Just got back from a week in Seattle at Robert Langs Studio http://www.robertlangstudios.com/main2.htm with my band Glass. We're hard at work on our new studio CD. I'll post a link to some Mp3s featuring her great sound when I get a chance. Ron W just went through the electronics on it a short time ago and the sound directly into the board *blew everyone away*! Bob Lang himself commented on how great it sounded in comparison to the usual basses they record.
I'll keep you all posted and Thanks Again to everyone at Alembic and my Brothers here at the club that helped me make this happen!

Jeff - I know what you mean. When I plug my 1972 Alembic bass in, the engineers just can't believe it. I am nut sure what they are hearing. I guess I am just used to it! I get lots of comments from that one.

Well according to Bob Lang (whos been a famous Seattle area Engineer for over 30 years) it's all in the range of tones. He told me the first Alembic he recorded in 1976 was the same way. No one at that session could believe the warmth and the breadth of the tone from real Lows all the way up the spectrum to incredible crisp Hi's. And I've noticed that my Alembic sounds even better now that the wood as aged some. . .not to mention how cool the wood looks now. .
I want to thank you personally again Michael for those Schallers. . . it made everything complete!
