Hello Alembic Family,

As some of you may know, I have been without an Alembic axe for a very long time (read years). I have finally found what I hope will be My Alembic bass. It is the one that was recently made available on the Bass Northwest website. I put money down to hold it, and now I need to raise funds to complete the purchase. I am attempting to do so via the crowd funding website, Indiegogo.com

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/no-more-dreams-deferred-my-alembic-bass

I think some here can relate to my situation, and I hope you might help spread the word, even if you are unable to contribute financially at this time. I have owned three Series basses over the course of my career, but each was sold in order to help finance the search for my children. There was, of course, no choice about that. But, as I note on the Indiegogo page, it is time to get back to my real work. And for that I need the proper tool. To paraphrase the line from the movie Risky Business:

Alembic. There is no substitute.

Thanks for reading.

M

Here's a video clip of a song on which I played an Alembic Series I bass guitar.

More Alembic bass. This time three demos from the Sex Machine project. (Scroll down and then click on each audio track to hear the tunes.) The bass tones are some of my favorites....
