Although the Saulus is equiped with only one pickup it offers a enormous variety of sound possibilities. In fact, the Jazzbuck by Harry Häussel actually features two standard Jazz single coils in one cover. They fit gorgeously together as a humbucker and, as you can mention, as sinlge coils anyway. Combined with a Noll 4-band equalizer this bass lets you form every sound you wish.
The headstock of Ulrich BassDesign instruments traces back to the Spanish guitar. Under the influence of Antonio de Torres this construction technique proved to be of big advantage already more than 200 years ago. Adapting and interperating this method for our basses, the pressure on the nut is higher while the headstock angle can be very low. Note that the wood fiber runs through the entire headstock, which leads to greater stability. Thereby it improves the vibration properties resulting in a tighter feeling of sound.
Every bass comes with an ergonomic shaping on the back. The instrument feels very comfortable both in a standing and sitting position. Another unique feature is the special neck joint. It is a set neck construction, that goes all the way through to the bridge pickup. This improves the attack, sustain and the dynamic range.
