This bass play like a dream, as usual for a Jerzy Drozd. It's very lightweight so it's not exhausting at all to play with.
A little sound clip with old nickel strings :
I have a lot of soundclips with new steel strings if you want to hear more.
Street price starts at 5000€ according to the Jerzy Drozd's website :
Don't hesitate if you want more soundclips or pics.
For trades I am quite opened, I am interested in fretted or fretless basses, from 4 to 6 strings.
Rather looking for a Leduc, MTD, Tobias, Ken Smith, or whatever...
Waiting for your proposals!!

5 string Spectorcore lined fretless bass in as new condition having had minimal use since buying brand new from Bass Direct last year. Still has the plastic wrapping on the electronics cover!
This is the version with the Fishman piezo pickup in the bridge and the Bartolini pick up rather than the EMG.
It’s 35” scale, passive and strung with rounds. It plays wonderfully and is a great bass for the money.
