USA ...

a breeze, which can really play the entire length of the handle without having to break your wrists!

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?

it all depends on the research ... but on average, I think so


- They are suitable to your style of music?


- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?

alembic ==> U5 ==> amp any lamp ==> 2 * 10 + 1 * 15 MESA ...

you can spend on the well-acute fatty snoring is the amp (and thereby blow the amp ...)

Sounds pretty high medium or acute. Can be compensated with the electronics but the register "natural" the bass is at the top of the spectrum.

9 good months, and regularly

the sound is excellent, and playing comfort as much ...

a few ... including a carbon Schack it without comment ...

alembic on a nine, I find it a bit excessive (quoique. ..) then for a time, it's happiness!

Alembic Essence
24 frets

The site is ALEMBIC prcis .....

The design of this bass is amazing. MADE IN ALEMBIC!!


The neck is super enjoyable and finishing GLOSH makes hyper soft or silky ...
One CHARACTERISTICS low ALEMNBIC, c the quality of mediums and highs. Access in acute is impeccable.


I bought this bass qq weeks ago and since I Discoveries full range of its offer that low. Overall, the precision of mdiums and treble is the hallmark of these basses. The bass are pchus and clean, rglages can achieve any kind of sound.
I play Rock and blues, but I dj essay on the pop and jazz, has spent much trs.
I plug the bass on a Hartke 3500 and a case Hartke 4 * 10 inches, was killed ... even if I have not explored all the possibilities of this set.


You'll understand when I read, I am satisfied with this bass that open the doors of PRO instruments. I bought used via AF and I made a deal intrssante. I recommend this instrument even if it is not cheap ... but you have to have some fun.
