The ToneStyler DUO SIX is a six-position EQ control featuring two cables & two independent tone circuits, operated simultaneously using one standard tone knob. The deeper neck pickup's circuit ranges from TRUE BYPASS to .047µF; the brighter bridge pickup's circuit ranges from TRUE BYPASS to .022µF. These are the same min-max EQ ranges as previously-featured in all variations of our BASS DUO SIX controls.
The bright tonality of TRUE BYPASS switch position #6 may be optionally-configured for a warmer "virtual tone pot loading", by adding the included parts to your volume pot's terminals. Connect as shown in this PDF: Virtual Tone Pot Kit
New features for 2021: Within these traditional tone pot capacitor ranges, the dual circuits have been precisely re-voiced from bright to dark, in five complementary audio-taper tone steps. This refinement now allows both cables to be connected together in parallel to create a single-circuit ToneStyler SUB-BASS control, ranging way down to .069µF… or alternately, connected together in series to create a single-circuit ToneStyler MID-RANGE control, adjusting down to only .015µF. These two optional EQ ranges enjoy the same uniform audio-taper tone spacing per step, as when only one cable is used.
The DUO SIX is 100% compatible with passive high-impedance pickup basses & guitars, with three-knob "volume-volume-tone" controls, such as Fender's J-Bass and most Gretsch models. Use one D6 per two volume controls.
Alternately, the DUO SIX may be installed in a single-volume-knob bass or guitar, such as Fender’s P-Bass and Telecaster. By connecting one or both cables to the volume pot, the installer’s choice between four contrasting tone ranges is easily made: .069µF .047µF .022µF or .015µF. This versatility allows one DUO SIX to be shared and transferred within a variety of guitars and basses with many different control plans, as may be required for recording or live performances.
