ToneStylers are made in three EQ ranges:
• GUITAR • BASS • SUB-BASS
These product names offer guidelines for typical instrument types and player preferences; these are not rules. A guitarist may choose a BASS TEN for maximum range and versatility, with reduced fine-tuning; a bassist may choose a GUITAR TEN when old-school mellow tones are not needed, and extra choices in bright, modern tones are more practical for direct box recording.
For 2017, all ToneStylers feature TRUE BYPASS at maximum bright rotation. Guitar & Bass TENS add a "tone pot loading circuit" in switch position #9, which precisely duplicates the tonality of a standard tone pot when set "on 10". For additional details, see our specifications, at the end of this page series.
For general purposes: choose a ToneStyler GUITAR for most guitars, and a ToneStyler BASS for most basses. These controls cover the capacitance range of standard guitar (.022µF) & bass (.047µF) tone controls. The SUB-BASS range is deeper in position #1 (.069µF/.1µF).
