Early June is the better of the two choices for me. I'll bring pictures of my since-sold Alembics–the stable is empty.

Hey David, yes I am, yes it was, and kinda off and on. They get together every now and then for a special show. Rox Cox doesn't play with them anymore as he has some health issues. Todd Potter recently announced that he would no longer be in the line up either. Both were at the Threadgills show last October with Todd on guitar and Roy making an appearance for a special award honoring the band. They are planning a 2013 show.

LOL! You may be right Michael! There hasn't been a Texas gathering in what, 3 or 4 years? The intensity of a Lone Star 'Lembicians gathering is not something the cosmos can handle every year! I'm willing to take my chances though, I'm pretty sure I will be no worse for the wear afterwards, & probably come away with some great friends & great memories!

I've heard from John (SMUProf), our usual host, and he is unavailable on 06/08. If we stick with that Saturday, we'll need to get a "venue".

Mike, would you have the opportunity to check into the space at the Jam Station again?

Any other ideas?

I'll need to check with my "event director", alias Mrs. O. But I have more than enough room at the new casa! Oh, by the Mike, did I mention I moved? LOL I am in Garland now, since Dec 1st.
Let me interject though, it won't be the same without JT there.

Man! I would hate to miss out on this. Got a room full of toys which cuts down the cost (no rental) and no load in/out for drums, PA, keyboards.

But I'm out of town on 6/8 - is 6/15 a no-go for others?

Since Olie's got new digs, I'll have to pass on 6/8 with major regrets. Can't stand in the way of expanding the Texas Alembic Mafia! :-)

Let me know about the next one . . .

Sorry John, it would great if you could make it. Of course, you could always leave your key under the mat while you're out of the house. Just sayin'. :-)

I'm going to ask The Jam Station for June 8. IICR they have 4, or 8 hour blocks. I liked the room we had the last time. Spacious and a PA. I don't recall the price, but it seemed reasonable when others shared the cost. Load-in was easy (they have an elevator!).

It's not too late if anyone wants to host, but you'll need a serious amount of room if more than four guys show up with basses and gear.

Olie, would your band mates be interested in coming?

To the community at large: TEXAS is definitely on in Dallas for Saturday, June 8. We'll be at mi casa, and we've already got a great turn out - at least 7 Alembicians are committed, with possibly more. Some seriously nice instruments in the group (looking forward to the photos). All day Saturday, probably not a late night. Some traveling will be in Friday night before and we'll hang out then as well.

We'll make room if any others can make it in Friday night and need a place to stay. If you can join us, let us know. Shoot me or groovelines an email and we'll get you location and time details.

It's been a couple of years since the last TEXAS round of awesomeness, and we want to make this the best one yet. Come out, bring your toys and play with us!

Clarification - I was speaking only of the Dallas group. David and Christian also fit that characterization - nice guys you want to know!

In fact, seems to be the case with all Alembicians. Maybe we can "borrow" the old Honda slogan - "You meet the nicest people on an Alembic" :-)

The Honda slogan definitely fits! Every Alembic player I have ever met has been super nice & great people! When I toured the Mothership I met Wolf & his wife for supper the night before & he invited me, a total stranger, back to his house & let me play all of his amazing Alembics. Total class act!

I know you guys are going to have a total blast! Can't stress enough the importance of taking gazillion pictures (preferably outside if possible to avoid using flash) from every possible angle. Frankly, I don't feel I took enough this year and I'm still slightly miffed.

If it's too daunting to resize a whole ton of flicks to fit the posting requirements here on the forum, then create an album on facebook, flickr, etc. and make the link public so we can have a peek.

Gawk, play and be merry!!!!! The rest of us will be there in spirit.

Rusty was the official photographer, so I won't steal his thunder, but suffice it to say fun was had by all.

All in 15 Alembics, 8 Alembicians, along with 2 drummers and a guitarist. I think we raised the bar this time: Doc and Rusty came in Friday night, several of us visited Mike's church and heard him play, then headed over to a local bar for dinner and to hear Olie's band play. Turned it into a 24 hour "Alembifest."

Hey Paul - The fretless is my baby. It has become my go to over the years. Glad you like it.

Here's some history (beware, shocking photos ahead):

It started life as fretted, was converted, and suffered some setbacks along the road.

Yeah, I'm with Paul. Can you add some captions after the fact? After seeing Dave's, Bill's and Harry's knobby headstocks -- and now this fretless -- I'm sold on the Inner Earth look.

Love the three standard point Series I's (?) in front of the fireplace shot. I know that just relaxing and having a good time is paramount, but spending the little bit of extra effort to take sub-grouping shots is worthwhile, because these are actually for posterity and all these instruments are priceless.

I also love how your very last shot mostly has darker basses on one side and the lighter ones on the other. Whether inadvertent or by design, it really emphasizes the spectrum of wood colors on these instruments.

The 3 series ones from left to right belong to Sir David, Doc Greene, and me. Mine was owned by Adam for many years, but I believe David's and Doc's were original purchases. From left to right they are 1976, 1978, and 1980.

Sorry about the lack of captions, I had to resize these 3 times before the forum would accept them even though they were all less than 150K on the original resize. I also didn't want to violate anyone's privacy by posting something about their instrument they may not want known so I figured I would let everyone fill in the blanks, which Wayne & John have done nicely.

I hear you about resizing the pics Rusty. I know we have some posted guidelines about file size, but what settings did you finally use to get the pics to look this big without reducing the resolution too much? That's not in the instructions.

I'm sure we could all benefit from this knowledge once and for all, as it's very frustrating trying to reduce a 6mb file down to 150kb or lower without it being postage stamp size or poorly resolved. I can never get my pics to show up as big as yours...

I had a great time seeing the old friends again and meeting the new ones. I regret that I couldn;t stay longer but I had to get Mike back to my house and he had over an hour drive back home. The T-Shirt rocked Rusty, very cool indeed. We did manage to get a little playing in right up until this hit the table! :-)

Hi guys,
very cool reports and pics so far, please keep them comin'... every word I read and every picture I look at is pure joy. Rusty, excellent job on the Ts (yes, and I will say that seven more times) :-), and very good photos, too.

Especially, I love the very first and the very last, the gang and the girls in a group shot, what a nice frame... let me see... on your very first pic, there's Olie on the left, then Mike, John, Doc, an unknown character, Wayne, Sir David, and you, Rusty. but wait a Moment...

Please not tell me anyone that this "unknown character" is mein Bruder Robert F. K. from Fort Worth ! He looks just like him or a twin to me, amazing. I do not see his 5string walnut series bass, and he is not a forum member, AFAIK, so it must be a twin :-) Please forgive me that I do not know / memorize the the two additional smart guys in the last photo, far left to Olie, and the Young man between Sir David and Rusty.

Keep them Pictures comin' ! Yeehaw !
cheers, Christian

And Mike's Geddy Lee Jazz cannot go without mention. . . that's actually Geddy Lee's signature across the top in silver.

(not shown was another Jazz bass, Hofner, Kramer Flying V, and Carvin fretless hollow body)

Jazzyvee, if I ever do win the lottery & am able to build a custom, I think it will be a 32" scale Series I. Not sure of the body style, but the Series I's sounded AMAZING & the 32" scale on Olie's custom suited me very well! I'm sure the Series II's can sound amazing too, but that's just too many knobs for me to deal with! The Series I's sounded incredible with little tweaking.

Sam, I used Fotosizer to resize my pictures. It's a free download. I had to use a couple of different size settings to get the optimum size & stay below 150K, but most are 1200 X 900. For some reason they come out much larger in the post than resizing them with Photoshop, & with Fotosizer you can do dozens of pics at once & it takes only a few seconds.

Mike's Geddy Lee Jazz definitely deserves honorable mention! Thanks for bringing it out Mike! Sorry I didn't get pics of the other non-Alembics, the time just passed way too fast!

Rusty , I have often thought that a Custom Series I Distillate shape with master volume would be cool. One could chose between the original Distillate shape and the newer style with slightly extended upper horn .

Rusty, my custom is actually a 34" as is my spalted maple. I think it feels shorter due the 3/4 body allows the neck to sit a little more centered to the player than a balance K or full suze omega.

Wolf, the one thing I think that surprised me the most about attending my first gathering was that I didn't come away from it thinking that I had to get another Alembic. As truly amazing as all the other basses were, playing them re-enforced just how much I love my SCSD! I definitely made the right choice when I bought my SCSD, it is perfect for me! There was no "Wood Envy" on my part, just a sense of pride & honor that I got to meet some exceptional new friends & that they let me play their incredible instruments! If I ever have the means, I would love to have a custom built but for now I am completely happy with my SCSD.

Rusty ,
You do indeed have a wonderful Alembic. I have felt the same after our gatherings . The "pride and honor "of meeting exceptional new friends is a concept that I share with you in appreciation of our Alembic Brother and Sisterhood. Upon leaving a Gathering during my exiting thoughts I already look forward towards ;
" Next Time ".

pardon the brief hi-jack . . .
I think there is a consensus, at least with Rusty, Wolf and I.

When it comes to wanting anything more than what I have (just a Distillate), it doesn't even cross my mind. Me and my girl have a special bond, I know every ding and dent on her. I can tell what sound will come out of her just by the position of the switches and knobs before I even touch her strings. We have sweated and fretted together in good and bad times (there are scars), but she is my forever bass.

When the day comes that I can no longer play, she will be bestowed to my son, at which time his now infrequent relationship with her will become more intimate and the love will grow an go on and on and on . . .

Now back to the Tejas drooling. . .

John, I would drive to Dallas just to play any one of your amazing collection, but have often used your quote "Variety is the spice of life" myself! I'm sure if I had more than just my SCSD it would be a similar situation as when I had my 2nd son. I was worried that having another child would take away from the wonderful relationship I had with my 1st son, which of course, it didn't, & now I wouldn't trade my 2nd son for all the Alembics ever made!

A lovely collection of instruments; always amazing to see a bunch together (though I think the Chicago gathering still holds the record for most Alembics in one place that isn't Rami's closet).

You're welcome Dave! I finally finished editing the video & it has been uploading since this morning but isn't available yet. I will show it to the attendees first to get their approval before posting the link on here. It is a private posting right now that the general public can't see it.

OK folks, I got the approval of the Texas bunch to post the video. It will remain "Unlisted" so that it doesn't show up in any public searches, but you can access the video here -

The audio is distorted in places because the camera was too close to my amp, but you can see some amazing basses in action!

Cool video. Rusty I noticed the neck on one of the bass you were playing towards the end of the video looked like it had only 3 neck lams with a thick dark wood lam down the centre. Can't say I've noticed that before, Is that a huge slice of ebony by any chance?

Thanks Jazzyvee! The bass I was playing was Olie's Custom. It has 3 purpleheart & 2 ebony laminates in the neck, but on the video it looks like one wide ebony strip. It played AMAZING, but I struggled a little with it because the strap was really high from what I'm used to. You can read about it here -

Rusty that was great. Thanks for sharing.
What camera did you use?

It looks like the whole group had a real good time - another successful Gathering! :-D

Thanks Pauldo! I used a Panasonic HDC-TM90 & shot in 1080p. It usually does great audio, I use it for my band all the time, but I'm usually not 5' away from my amp like I was at the Gathering.
