My Gear



I own two Alembic Series One four string basses. These are older models from the 70's. Yes they are banged up and not all that pretty but they really have it where it counts. I also own a 5 string Alembic Epic fretless bass. My five string fretless bass is strung from low E to high C.


I'm using an Epifani UL 4-10 cabinet. An Epifani UL 2-12 cabinet is on my shopping list. I run my Alembics in stereo. The signal from each pick-up goes into an Alesis DEQ 230 then into an ART SGX Night Bass Pre-amp (one per channel), then into an Alembic F-1X (one per channel), then into an Alembic Super Filter. From there it all goes in to an SWR sm900 amp. The fretless (since it is mono) plug into one of the ART Night Bass pre-amps and follow the same path through all of the gear.
