Alembic Sound clips

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by xEriatarka, Aug 14, 2007.


  1. I know there are a few Alembic players out there, and I've been a bit curious as to their tone. Anyone have any nice sound clips of their Alembic?

    I don't really know which models are which, so if you could put pictures with your links, that'd be awesome.

    Thanks!!! :hyper:

    Tone is awesome! All the tracks on my Myspace site are on an Alembic Europa. First one is a bass loop through an EBS microbass. @nd is my bands single. Others were straight into computer. I love my Alembic. It is very Nice.
     
  5. Check out Stanley Clarke's stuff.
    Dixie Dregs/Dregs Andy West used an Alembic if I'm not mistaken
    Mark King uses one at times (not all recordings)

    Didn't recognize the tune so I looked in the related vid links on youtube until I found one of Les Claypool playing this...

    Whoever the guy with the Alembic is, his tone is much better than Les'.
