Jerzy Drozd Signature V. Do you like wood? I mean gorgeous wood and lots of it, made into a fantastic sounding
and playing bass? Read on.
The Signature model by Jerzy is his most “wood intensive” bass. The top is Spalted Maple, among the best I have seen, and the back is a crazy Burl Maple. The 34″ scale neck is primarily Flame Maple with Bubinga, Purpleheart and Wenge runners. The fretboard is a thick slab of Ebony.
For this example, we asked Jerzy to use his single coil hum- cancelling pickups – dual coils are the norm for this model. I find the single coils to be more “open” and bright than his dual coils.
The preamp is by Aguilar , with volume,blend , 3 band EQ with passive tone control. I really do like the passive tone control – you get your EQ as you like with the passive tone full open, than you can back off the high end in a very subtle way to get the bite of the tone just right. There is a mid select switch, and this bass can go active or passive via the push/push volume control.
