|What does the Q Switch do?||The Q switch works with the filter to boost the resonance where the filter is set. When the Q switch is on, and you sweep the control back and forth, you'll hear a distinctive wah-wah sound. Filters with no Q switch have it present with this boost (about 8dB). The switch enables you to dampen (supress) the resonance and listen to the flat filter response.|
|What strings do you put on new instruments?||We usually use our CX-3 series strings. For four string basses, we string .045-.065.-.080-.105. Five strings add a .128 B string and six strings add a .030 C string.
We set our guitars up with our NK-4/10G strings .010-.012-.016-.026-.036-.046.
We'll be happy to set up your bass or guitar with your preffered strings, if you supply them to us.
|How do I polish tarnished brass parts on my Alembic?||We use a product called Flitz. Any brass polish you have locally available should work. We like the Flitz because it's in paste form and it's hard to use too much.|
|Does Alembic offer product endorsements?||No, every person you see playing an Alembic is an Alembic customer. Our products cost enough without asking you to play for high-profile musician's instruments.|
