{2jtoolbox_content tabs id:1 begin title: General Info}

... You like simplicity, the right sound, and the right feeling
sometimes the simplest things become The Best ...

SOUL bass guitar is our simplest instrument within OBSESSION series of instruments. It represents the pure essence of what the bass should be.

It is simple, effective, and only charged with the features you really need. Hardware, pickups, electronics, and all other components are exactly the same as those used on other Jerzy Drozd Basses, so you can expect exactly the same quality on SOUL as on the other instruments ... simplicity is the major virtue. No wonder many players prefers SOUL over other basses-it is because this simple look. No multi-laminate necks, no special woods— just simple but ergonomic bass with great sound provided by our new JeDXS bass pickups
and OBP-3 Aguilar pre amp.

Our exclusive fully adjustable bridge with its nicely designed tailpiece adds the final touch to this simple but extremely efficient instrument.
