The Sultans have a smooth, unadulterated tone with excellent pick attack. A combination of hand-bevelled Alnico II magnets and scatter-wound coils of 42AWG plain enamel wire produce a softer, more gentle response in the bass and treble with extremely natural sustain and vintage output. Clean tones have a lovely hollow 'cluck' in the mid range which turns into a singing driven tone when gain is applied. As with the Apache, the bridge coil of The Sultans is wound a little hotter for more improved balance with the mid and neck coils, maintaining an open voice with good harmonic overtones and presence.
