Alembic Essence

SKU K14914
Get the Alembic sound without the size and weight of the classic Alembic instruments. The Essence. The Essence bass is heir smallest body -  12 inches across.

The heart of the Essence's tone is the Alembic low-pass filter. With this one tone control, a wide range of sounds from deep to bright are available with a simple twist of one knob. Even a small amount of rotation can produce a big change in tone.

The Essence bass gives you all the essentials of Alembic: neck through body construction, Alembic pickups and active electronics, solid brass hardware, all crafted in Santa Rosa, California, USA, the only place that Alembics are born.
