Introducing the 2021 GUITAR TEN & BASS TEN ToneStylers

The latest refinement in Stellartone's unique single-channel single-cable ToneStylers.  The 2021 GUITAR TEN AND BASS TEN feature USA 24-fine-spline split-shaft tips for push-on knobs, as well as fitting set-screw knobs with 6mm and 1/4" hole sizes.  The 1/2" length USA mounting bushings allow easy drop-in installations through surfaces up to 3/8" thick.

For use in guitars and basses with only one master volume control (Fender Precision Bass, Telecaster, etc) connect the shielded cable directly to the volume pot's input terminal to access the traditional .022µF tone range for guitars, or the extended .100µF tone range for basses.  For Strats, connect one ToneStyler as a master, and connect the other tone knob also as a master.

In four-knob guitars and basses featuring two pickup volumes and two tone controls (Gibson Les Paul, Fender Thinline Tele, Rickenbacker 4001, etc), use one ToneStyler for either the bridge or the neck pickup (it will also control 'both pickups'). Or, use a pair of ToneStylers for independent EQ control of each pickup.

There are eight contrasting capacitance circuits in each ToneStyler TEN, with uniform audio-taper spacing between tones.  At full clockwise rotation #10, true bypass is selected; in the adjacent #9 detent, "virtual tone pot loading" is selected.

See the animated EQ chart below for a comparison of the audio performance of a standard single-capacitor tone pot, vs the multi-capacitor ToneStyler, and check out our product specifications for more information.

Introducing the 2021 DUO SIX ToneStyler

The latest refinement in Stellartone's unique two-channel two-cable ToneStylers.  The multi-range, multi-purpose 2021 DUO SIX offers musicians a choice between four contrasting capacitance ranges during the easy drop-in installation.

For use in guitars and basses featuring two pickup volumes but space for only one master tone control (Fender Jazz Bass, Gretsch), simply connect one cable to each pickup output. The blue cable's .047µF range controls the neck pickup, and the red cable's .022µF range controls the bridge pickup.

For use in guitars and basses with only one master volume control (Fender Precision Bass, Telecaster) connect only one cable to the volume pot to access the traditional .022µF or .047µF tone pot ranges.  To increase the EQ range to .069µF sub-bass, connect both cables in parallel.  To decrease to .015µF for mid-range-only EQ, connect both cables in series.  You may also connect one cable to each pickup output, producing two complementary EQ ranges.

There are five contrasting capacitance circuits in each of the four available EQ ranges, with uniform audio-taper spacing between tones.  At full clockwise rotation, the installer's option of true bypass or virtual tone pot loading is selected.

See the EQ chart below for a comparison of these four capacitance ranges, and check out our product specifications for more information.
