Custom Tone Controls - All Products
ToneStylers - For Guitar & Bass -
Simply the best drop-in replacement for your ineffective & dull tone pot. Invisibly installs in minutes using your original knobs, without any modification to the instrument. Precisely cut treble while retaining midrange resonance and rich harmonics.
Optimize your tone before your output passes through pedalboards, direct boxes, amplifiers, or microphones. Recordings are vastly improved, and live performance tones are perfected.
100% passive analog circuitry increases the output and clarity of any guitar or bass with passive pickups. No batteries - Zero noise! Powerful and precise control of treble & mid frequencies is provided at last... and the tone pot's weak, muddy sound is completely eliminated!
Twelve models offer six, ten or twelve circuits, ranging from sizzling true bypass to bass-only EQ! Hand-made in the U.S.A. Street / Retail $74 to $159
Trio - For Guitar and Bass -
A unique drop-in replacement for your ineffective & dull tone pot. Solely removes unwanted high treble harmonics, with zero effect upon mid-range or bass frequencies! Eliminates a hard edge from clean tones, and the fizzy "angry bee" noise created by overdriven preamp tubes and distortion pedals.
Optimize your treble response before your output passes through pedalboards, direct boxes, amplifiers, or microphones. Recordings are vastly improved, and live performance tones are perfected.
Choose a pair of treble cut frequencies (high, standard, or low) from the six available circuits during installation. Use the three-position toggle switch to instantly select true bypass (or virtual tone pot loading), a warmer treble cut, or a cooler treble cut. No batteries - Zero noise!
Quickly replaces a standard 3/8" tone pot without any modification to the instrument. Compatible with passive high-impedance guitars & basses with two "volume-tone" knobs (Tele, P-Bass), three "volume-tone-tone" knobs (Strat), or four "volume-tone-volume-tone" knobs (Gibson, RIC). * NOT FOR "Volume-Volume-Tone" controls (J-Bass, Flying V) * Hand-made in the U.S.A.
Model T-3 Street / Retail: $49
Tele-Jazz Controls - For Fender Jazz Bass & Clones -
Stellartone's new "Tele-Jazz" control assemblies offer premium-quality drop-in upgrades for Fender J-Bass control plates, controls, and wiring plans. The four-way "Telecaster" pickup switch adds the powerful "series pickups" tone to your bass's traditional parallel pickups and solo pickup tones.
Including one ToneStyler BASS control of your choice, a "Tele-Jazz" upgrade will greatly expand the tonal range and versatility of your Fender J-Bass or clone. No modification or fitting is required.
Four unique control plans are available, with a choice of knob styles and finishes. No batteries - Zero noise! Hand-made in the U.S.A. Street / Retail $132 to $207
4x4 Strat - For Fender Stratocaster & Clones -
Our custom pick-guard offers a precise drop-in replacement for Fender's standard 11-hole pick-guard. By replacing the 5-way Strat switch with a 4-way series/parallel switch, and replacing the Strat's center tone knob with a second 4-way series/parallel switch, the traditional five-position Strat comes alive... with a total of thirteen useful and musical pickup combinations! Unlike Fender's S-1 switch, thin and weak "out of phase" pickup sounds are not provided!
Including one ToneStyler GUITAR control of your choice, a "4x4" upgrade will greatly expand the tonal range and versatility of your Fender Strat or clone. No modification or fitting is required. Pickups are not included.
See the Stellartone web store to choose from a variety of pick-guard and knob colors. No batteries - Zero noise! Hand-made in the U.S.A.

Vari-ToneStyler - For Guitar & Bass -
Double the performance and versatility of our original ToneStyler controls with a Vari-ToneStyler system. Five brand-new, ultra-premium quality varitone circuits selectively cut mid-range... plus five classic ToneStyler circuits to selectively cut treble and passively boost pickup resonance, plus true bypass. That's eleven distinctive tones, from one six-position passive control! Choose between varitone mode and ToneStyler mode via a push-pull volume pot, or a blend pot.
The musicality and complex character of our unique "Vari-Tone" circuit mode sets a new standard, exceeding all past and present industry efforts... including varitones installed in Gibson's ES, EB and other instruments. Unlike any varitone in existence, ours features a 15 Henry humbucking audio frequency choke with mu-metal shielding. Hobby varitones, using a tiny mic-line transformer instead of a real choke, cannot begin to compare on any level of performance.
See the Stellartone web store to choose from a variety of options. No batteries - Zero noise! Hand-made in the U.S.A.
