Yeah i should have looked a bit harder. It sure is a beauty. I have a weakness for Úlan basses. That dark top with the light edging of maple showing looks very spectacular.
How are you finding the brightness of the tone?

It is bright, but it's full. I just added a 15" extension cabinet to my amp set up for a little more low end punch. I've always played with a bit of a trebly edge so it works for me. The filter always seems to end up wide open with the bass boost on, treble boost off but not cut... I've found my sound.

It was taken by my other half at the festival I played at last night. The colours were all strange so I changed it to monochrome and messed around with it in iphoto.

I recall offering to do that my self a few years back, I produced a book from my touring pictures using an on-line service which would be pretty easy to create one for members photo's.

I'd still be happy to do it if there was any interest but obviously would need the best resolution pictures to make it good quality and a bit of info on the person and/or alembic instrument.
lemme know.

This is what happens when you subscribe threads on the email... no pics= little info. I haven't noticed, until I came to the page to check the sticker everyone's talking about (and of which I'd like me one as well), Kimberly's rig!!!!! I'm WAY more curious now! So, Kimberly... Left handed, 6 strings Epic (+1 for us Epic caretakers), strung upside-down a-la Haslip, AND a Roland GK system? Is this a solo gig, as it seems to me from one of the pics? What do you use off-board? Please do tell! :-) :-) :-)

Hi Kimberley, a question if I may. Is it possible to slap and pop on bass if you play bass with the lowest string closest to the floor?
I can't imagine that being an easy thing to do.

Thanks Dave for bringing this clip to our attention. It will never cease to amaze me how our forum member with the "highest smiley density in posts" can play the bass. Obviously, I shall convert my basses to upside-down, it looks sooo much easier :-) now where to find a nut and a bridge ?

When I have owned an alembic for 30yrs I will post a now and then picture too. I've only got 20 years to go :-)

Love the bear Mike! I saw the Gumby & Pokey in the checkout line at Fry's & had to have them! I used to love them when I was a kid! I put them on my amp to prove to my bandmates that I am, in fact, NOT playing too loud or Gumby would fall flat on his face! LOL!

Hi Guys! :-)

Mild hijack under the guise of catching up. ;)

Delano, long story over many years with my 'slap technique'. Honestly the simple mechanics of having the 'primary slap strings' being B,E,A on the bottom in itself requires reaching over the top of the D,G,C strings to reach them. At the same time from having my thumb on the top of my left hand (and missing half of it from the joint out) and my picking fingers on the bottom, (I hope that makes sense). This required me to develop a 'quasi' slap method that had me 'flailing around' for many years trying to emulate slap bass. And it's still a work in process, as is my music overall, but it's starting to work finally! :-) True slap? Naaahhh...not even close. Effective for what I do? Works for me for now til I learn something else. :-)

Christian, Peter, Paul, glad you guys like! I appreciate the compliments! :-)

Dave, thanks for the 'tech support'! :-)

Yep, I'm still using my RC-50 looper. The pedal board has changed some. New format with road cases. Signal chain starts going into a splitter, which one line goes direct to the mixer, one goes to a ME-50B. Stereo out, going to an Eventide PitchFactor. Stereo out going to an Adrenalinn III. Stereo out going to the looper. Of course this signal path arrangement does have a tendency to change and I'll end up with cables going all over everywhere with way too many line signals running around. Then I'll start all over again. :D

Guess that's it so, back to the regularly scheduled programming. ;)

Thanks Guys! :-)

Best Regards,

Kimberly :-)

Now that is a cool pose with a super cool bass.

I'm a closet Exploiter bass fan but i think it would have too much stage presence for the jazz funk type of gigs I do but I guess it would be kind of cool in a reggae band. :-)

Anyone got a picture of a Dragon's wing bass in a gig situation?

I can say the same, I find Exploiter bodyshape very captivating, but can't imagine myself getting into one of my samba gigs with one in hand since they still think bass just as Precisions only. P-Basses sounds great, but they are simply not me...

I hear you, Dean! I was just diagnosed with arthritis in my hips. A perfect complement to being a new parent. Still, it beats the alternative.

I'm loving all these shots. Some basses I've never seen and some old friends. I'm also loving the fact that Alembic instruments travel from honky tonks to the most upscale of establishments.

Slawie, what's the serial number on that straight bar bridged bass? It looks like it might have originally had caramel pickups. I'm wondering if it might have been the original home of the pickups in my Starfire.

The '88 Spoiler is tuned one step below the low strings of a five string (ADGC) I use it for two songs: Sad but true and Whiskey in the jar.
The Elan 5 is used on songs I play with a pick ('88 and up Metallica songs)
The '83 Spoiler on older 'tallica tunes songs played with the fingers (AXY = best thumbrest ever) and to keep the show going for some songs played with a pick.

I've got to reiterate once again that I think it's so awesome that Alembics can cover so much musical territory and sound so different doing it.

BTW, I checked your site, fcbass and it gave me a Spinal Tap moment with a page none more black and none of the apparent promised info on effects and amps.

Nope, that's the barrister's job. Solicitors are behind the scenes. I figure the dreads got the wig function covered. I like the idea of someone with jazzy's hair representing me as it conveys a sense of my self-perception from back when I had serious hair.

Going by the obvious age of Matt's bass, I'd guess he has p/up selector, vol X2, Filter X2, Q switch X2, and p/up trimpot X2, Mario; on the really early ones the trims were front-mounted instead of in the cavity.

The singer/guitarplayer and I (Bass) switched places and did a Motorhead/Sepultura coversong (Orgasmatron)
Symen played my '83 Spoiler and I played my Squier Strat with an Alembic 4 string Jazz pickup. The humbucker I had in there was pretty bad and microphonic, with the Alembic pickup through a Tubescreamer into a Mesa combo I had a great sound :-)

A long long time ago, in a much skinnier and hairier galaxy... 1979.

Electronics on this (and its fretless sibling) are one superfilter channel, one series filter w/cvq, with a bunch of switches that let me switch high/band/low for the SF, filter in/out for the series filter, and let me put the two filters in series, plus mono/stereo switch.

Nice bass Mark. reminds me of Joe Bouchard's (of BOC fame). Always liked those batwing inlays.

A guitar based photo to even things up a bit. This is the Dragon Magic, former custom of the month. I used it for a documentary film about Musical Youth in a rehearsal studio. Seemed a pretty good idea.

It hasn't seen much action recently as I've been concentrating on the bass side of my playing. That's gonna switch again soon I can feel it.

Flip, is this Wha a Bass Wha or Guitar model? I'm increasingly unsatisfied with my Dunlop Cry-Baby Bass Wha since it chops off my Rogue's highs and I'm considering substitute it with a Guitar Wha... Sorry for hijack, guys, but does anybody has any advice?

My favorite bass wah is the old Morley Chrome Power Wah. It had the widest sweep I've ever heard. I've got one that goes between wh and volume and works great.

Wolf: Alembic & Mesa, always a good choice! :-)

Mario: It's an old Morley Power wah fuzz (from 1975)
Original for guitar I think, but with an extreme wide sweep.
I only use it for wah/fuzz sounds (with a Big Muff), see here
I never tried it with "normal" bass sounds though...
I'll see if I can try it in the next couple of days, I'm sure you won't miss highs with this pedal :-)

If you want one of these old ones and don't need the fuzz, best would be to get the Power Wah (PWO)
They are a lot cheaper, have the same Wah sound and you can switch between Wah/volume pedal mode.

I have one of those:



You are correct - the sweep is very wide and smooth and the fuzz is vicious. Sounds WAAYYYYY better for bass than guitar, IMO.

I'd use it more, but it sucks tone when in bypass mode - any suggestions?

Sorry for hijack.

I used to own a Morley Power Wah. Not only did it have a good fuzz but it was a good volume pedal. I regret selling it to a lead guitarist I used to play with.

Wild! Thanks, Flip, it is always great to know fuzzes that work good with active electronics, too. Have to check those Morley, probably the Power Wha, and the McCoy Bill is using (RMC3 looks really interesting).

Flip, I also have this tonekilling issue on the Dunlop, so I pass it trough a Boss LS-2 line selector as a "main bypass".

I've only done one full 2 hour gig with it so far so it's still a work in progress as I still need to be able to move the controls instinctively from one type of sound to another and know it's there before starting to play as it's not easy to tweak between notes on a busy bass line.

It really does look great, I love it. I actually play it more at home than I do my SII bass.
We are doing some big festivals this year, Camp Bestival and, The Isle of Wight Bestival so I may take one of the series basses there. 10's of thousands turn up at the Bestival I'm told..... Cool

Yesterday I uploaded onto youtube a video of a gig in 2003 which was the year I started doing gigs on bass. This was the first session I did with a singer called Gregory Peck.
I was using a Mesa boogie walkabout head and a Mesa boogie 2x10 powerhouse cab. Sound isn't great and you can hear the compressor in the video camera working hard.

Yeah, Kenn. We probably are less than a mile apart. I'm sure we have many mutual musical acquaintances, too. My daughter used to work at Perry's in Narragansett when she was in college. She turned me on to Violin River, and gave me your business card. I guess she was friendly with the singer and her husband. It's a small world. Anyway, I've been a big fan ever since!

Bill,
The sound system belongs to the guitarist and I didn't get a good look at it. No time this was a surprise party and we barely had time to get a song list together.
Both gigs were completely different 1 with long sustained notes and tones and the other freewheeling fun. Each rewarding in themselves.
Peace,
Pete

Here are some video's shot with phone's and small digital camera's from that gig last week. We fumbled a few changes from lack of rehearsal but overall the band sounded great and the audience loved it.

Okay, I need to add 1

This was from our Relay For Life on June 21st. This is the reason I couldn't make the Mothership Gathering (which I would have LOVED to attend)
Got Bass?

Here's a few pics from our gig in Clinton, CT on the Green. One with Bianca my Europa 6 and one with Zorro my Epic 5 fretless. Playing through my SWR SM900 amp into an AccuGroove El Whappo. I also played through my SWR SM400 through a Goliath 4x10 as a back up. SM900 starting to show years of wear.

Bianca

Zorro
