    If you are looking for the ultimate in tone, try pairing up an Alembic bass with an Ampeg amp!! I am using an Alembic Essence going through an Ampeg stack. The Essence is a short scale and man... what a sound. I am using it with Ampeg 4x10SVT and 1x15SVT cabinets topped with an SVTII. Go to my band's website www.mediacrime.com to see this set up. I wish I did this 30 years ago!!!

    I played the Alembic Essence 5 at the Australian Alembic launch. It was magnificent. You're a lucky man!

    I haven't tried a 5 string yet. I want to get another short scale 4 string Alembic first so I have a back up. My present back up is an Ampeg AEB-1 which I had a Musicman Stingray active tone circuit installed. It sounds nice but I'm hooked on the Alembic sound.
