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.

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! Hand-made in the U.S.A.

ToneStyler - Bass Ten Short -
A BASS DUO SIX is required when retaining the traditional three-knob "volume-volume-tone" control plan. A popular alternative is to convert the dual volume controls to a master volume plus a mono blend pot. This circuit change allows an upgrade with a BASS SIX or TEN, and reduced component costs. However, tech time is increased when installing a blend pot, which may reduce your savings in parts.

ToneStyler - Bass Six Short -
After converting your dual volumes to a master + blend, choose the Bass SIX for casual and stage use; choose the Bass TEN for its extended EQ range and increased fine-tuning, valuable for studio use.

Tele-Jazz v1 - with Bass Duo Six & dual volumes -
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. Version 1 features two stacked volume knobs for traditional pickup blending. No batteries - Zero noise! Hand-made in the U.S.A.

Tele-Jazz v3 - with Bass Six or Ten, master volume & tone depth -
Version 3's master volume knob is stacked on top of a unique "tone depth pot", which moderates the EQ strength and treble content of the selected ToneStyler circuit. Choose either a BASS SIX or TEN for this control plan.
Tele-Jazz v4-S - with Bass Six or Ten & master volume -
Same performance as version 4, except this control plate has a "straight throw" switch, for use with a standard-size single volume knob. Versions 1, 2 & 3 above feature "slant throw" switches to improve finger clearance when using the larger-diameter stacked knobs. Save $10 with this v4-S control plate.
