Alembic F2B-Sale Price $1256
F-2B was very first product to bear the Alembic name. About the only thing that's changed in the 30 years since the first F-2B is the chassis. What is it about the F-2B that's made it a classic? A simple to use Bass-Middle-Treble interface for each channel makes your perfect tone easy to find today, and to find again tomorrow. Its warm tube sound is musically useful not only to bass, but we've heard our customers use it for guitar and violin too! For fun, try cascading from channel A to channel B with guitar and discover a wonderful clear distortion.The F-2B contains two independent preamp/tone control sections. The amplification is entirely vaccum tube driven. Outputs are on the back panel:channel A out, channel B out, and a mono out that combines both channels
Alembic F1X-Sale Price $1256
F-1X is the mono version of our classic F-2B preamp. We kept the same tone section and added a few goodies like a direct output, built in effects loop and crossover. You can still use it in a simple setup since the F-1X also includes a standard full range output.Tube warmth? It's in there, and with an easy interface of Bass, Middle,
Treble, you'll find it hard to make the F-1X make a bad sound. Maybe that's why Bass Player Magazine gave the F-1X its highest rating, and why you rarely see one offered on the used market. Stanley Clarke is Actually Using two of These as seen below in Rig Rundown.
Alembic SF2-Sale Price $1256
The SF-2 Superfilter is a bit unusual. Around here we call it the Swiss army knife of tone. And we don't protect you, with a Superfilter, you're going to find some weird and amazing sounds. It's designed primarily as a tone processor, but we provide a front input jack so you can experiment without adding coloration from a preamp.There is no other preamp, graphic EQ, parametric EQ, or filter unit anywhere from anyone that can shape tone like the Alembic SF-2.
